Journalistiek voor een eerlijke en duurzame wereld

CARE Nederland is looking for an evaluation team for the external evaluation of the Every Voice Counts (EVC) that will take place from mid-February 2020 until mid-November 2020. The EVC Programme is funded through the ‘Dialogue and Dissent’ strategic partnership programme of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and aims to contribute to inclusive and effective governance processes in fragile settings.


The EVC programme

A key obstacle to achieving stability and sustainable development in fragile settings is the structural exclusion of segments of society from local, district level and national governance processes. The EVC programme Theory of Change (ToC) addresses this by focussing on inclusive governance processes, referring to the extent to which governance processes provide space to overcome the systematic exclusion of disadvantaged groups seeking to participate in decision making, in particular women and/or youth. The EVC programme is being implemented by CARE Nederland (CNL), The Hague Academy for Local Governance, RNW Media, CARE Country Offices (COs) and local partners in Afghanistan, Burundi, Pakistan, Rwanda, Somalia and Sudan.


The assignment

The aim of this assignment is to conduct the External End Evaluation (EEE) of the Every Voice Counts programme focusing on the results and process of the various programme components and to provide recommendations for future programming. To this end, the EEE will be comprised of three parts:

    1. An outcome evaluation – resulting from a synthesis of 6 country specific reports – focusing on the following programme aspects: effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, sustainability, and impact.
    2. A process evaluation focusing on the following programme aspects: the strategic partnership, knowledge management, and Lobbying & Advocacy in the Netherlands and the EU.
  • Actionable recommendations on how the design and implementation of an inclusive governance programme in fragile and conflict-affected settings can be strengthened in terms of results and process.
