2. TA – Communication for Development Specialist, NOC

Contract Type: Temporary Appointment
Level: NO-3
Categories: Communication for Development (C4D)

Organizational Context and Purpose for the job

  • The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does – in programs, in advocacy and in operations.
  • The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights into action.
  • For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favouritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life – in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions – her or his rights are violated.
  • There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens – addressing inequity – not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfil their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries.
  • This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations.

  • This subsequently will contribute to the achievement of sustainable and concrete results in improving children’s rights, survival and wellbeing in the country.

3. International Consultant – WASH Sector Theory of Change

Job ID: 543356
Location: Abuja
Contract Type: Consultancy
Level: Consultancy
Categories: WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene)
Purpose of the Assignment

  • The purpose of this assignment is to facilitate the development of a national WASH sector comprehensive analytical Theory of Change ‘Theory of Change (TOC)’ document through engagement with government at federal and state levels, UN agencies, Development Partners and Private Sector actors for the facilitation of a clear and detailed comprehensive conceptual framework of the WASH sector in Nigeria that is aligned to national priorities and SDG 6 and contributes to Child Survival and Development.
  • In 2019, UNICEF carried out an evaluation of the FGN/UNICEF WASH programme 2014 – 2017. One of the recommendations of the evaluation was the development of a theory of change for the sector in collaboration with the Government, UN agencies, development partners and the private sector with the aim of aligning the FGN/UNICEF WASH Programme with SDG 6, UNICEF’s global WASH Strategy 2016-2030 and the National priority of ending open defecation by the year 2025. Therefore, the theory of change will support future programming, specifically geared towards access to and use of safe and sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene for all and its impact on child survival and development.
  • The consultant will assist the WASH Section to address this recommendation of the evaluation report by facilitating the process of developing a ToC for the WASH sector. This will be achieved by engaging with government, development partners, the private sector and UN organizations and agencies in Nigeria involved in WASH interventions. The individual consultant would be expected to do a desk review of relevant documents and facilitate workshops and a consultative forum that will lead to the development of a ToC that is accepted by all stakeholders and addresses the need of the sector.

Scope of Work

  • The individual consultant will work closely with the Federal Ministry of Water Resources (FMWR), National Task Group on Sanitation (NTGS), the Clean Nigeria Campaign (CNC) Secretariat, States governments UNICEF Country and Field Office colleagues and other stakeholders in the sector to develop a sector-wide Toc.
  • This task will involve a review of national plans, strategies and priorities for the sector, facilitation of a stakeholders’ forum and workshop for the development of a theory of change. A final report of the process and copies of the theory of change.
  • The expected deliverables for this activity are: 1) A comprehensive analytical ToC document of the WASH sector in Nigeria including an executive summary, a diagrammatic representation, and two-pager infographics; and 2) a narrative report of the assignment.

Reasons why consultancy cannot be done by staff:

  • The consultancy will be working directly with Government partners, and stakeholders in the sector. Having an external person to facilitate the development of the sector-wide ToC fosters ownership of the process and the output by government partners and stakeholders.
  • The section does not have human resource capacity and time to engage with this process directly at the moment, hence the need for an individual consultant.
  • This Consultancy will contribute to output 2.1 of the FGN-UNICEF rolling work plan for 2021 – 2022. The cost will be covered with funds in regular resources.

The specific output and activities in the workplace are:

  • Output 2.1: Federal, state and local governments have strengthened institutional capacity and systems (to formulate evidence-based plans, budget, coordinate, monitor and mobilize resources) for scaling up equitable WASH interventions.
  • Activity 2.1.4 – Strengthen WASH Sector Coordination, National Monitoring, Reporting and Evaluation

Total Estimated Consultancy Cost:

  • The estimated cost for the consultancy is $25,000. However, the actual cost will be determined by the quoted fees of the selected candidate but not exceeding the estimated amount.

Minimum Qualifications Required
Knowledge / Expertise / Skills Required:

  • Advanced University Degree (Master’s or higher) in Social Sciences, Development Studies, Public Administration, Sociology or any other related field of study
  • S/he should have at least eight years of working experience in the WASH sector.

  • S/he must have verifiable evidence of having developed a theory of change for a government, international or multinational organisation or development programme.

The costs indicated are estimated. The final rate shall follow the “best value for money” principle, i.e., achieving the desired outcome at the lowest possible fee. Consultants will be asked to stipulate all-inclusive fees, including lump-sum travel and subsistence costs, as applicable.
Payment of professional fees will be based on the submission of agreed deliverables. UNICEF reserves the right to withhold payment in case the deliverables submitted are not up to the required standard or in case of delays in submitting the deliverables on the part of the consultant.
Text to be added to all TORS:
