IFRC is now preparing to carry out an IFRC-Wide COVID 19 Evaluation.

Purpose: The purpose of this evaluation is to analyse and evaluate the relevance, effectiveness and coherence of the current IFRC-wide COVID-19 response to assess its end delivery to those affected.

  • Relevance would include how well the response has been targeted to meet the needs across a range of contexts and how appropriate our work under the three Priorities and 18 Pillars has been to address the needs of the communities and National Societies affected by the pandemic.
  • Effectiveness would reflect how far those needs have been met by the wider IFRC network and identify both the successes and the challenges faced by both National Societies and the IFRC Secretariat in ensuring effective and efficient delivery those in need.
  • Coherence to measure the extent to which the intervention added value while avoiding duplication of effort. This would also be an opportunity to assess the auxiliary roles played by the National Societies and linkages with local actors.

We now have an agreed TOR for this evaluation (attached) and are seeking to identify an experienced team of 5 to 6 evaluators to carry out this task (1 external team leader and 4 to 5 team members).
