Third-Party Monitoring (HPF funded project)

Terms of Reference

World Vision Syria Response, Turkey

 

Background

Emergency Preparedness with WASH Essential NFIs

As the Syrian crisis grinds through its sixth year, civilians continue to bear the brunt of a conflict marked by unparalleled suffering, destruction and disregard for human life. 13.5 million people require humanitarian assistance, including 4.9 million people in need trapped in besieged and hard-to-reach areas, where they are exposed to grave protection threats.[1] Since the beginning of the crisis in 2011, Syria has witnessed significant challenges in the humanitarian and security situation across the country, including an increase in the targeting of civilian infrastructure, and a marked increase in internal displacement.

Access to water has increasingly been used as weapon of war in Syria, forcing 69% of the population to access water from medium to high-risk sources. Supply and access to water continues to be of the highest priority as public water networks continue to deteriorate due to fuel shortages, lack of maintenance, and systems damaged as a result of increased and over-capacity demand caused by rapid population influxes. Most of the water pumping stations have stopped functioning and those still working are in urgent need of regular maintenance to prevent further damage or stoppages.

As of September 2016, there are 298 informal tented settlements and camps in Syria, housing some 325,755 IDPs. The vast majority reside in informal settlements, where WASH services do not meet minimum standards, while only 20,000 stay in planned camps operated by humanitarian organizations. While relief actors provide regular services to the majority of IDP sites, over the course of 2016 needs have outstripped capacity to provide comprehensive multispectral support. In informal settlements and camps, over 82 per cent of sites are entirely dependent on humanitarian assistance to meet essential WASH needs. By the end of 2016, 8.2 million people in Syria remained in need of WASH assistance.[2]

This project aims to provide those who have been forced to leave their homes with immediate WASH lifesaving support until more permanent support can be secured. The funding for this project is meant to make available emergency WASH items to support the needs of up to 130, 800 IDPs. To this end, World Vision continues to work closely with the WASH cluster and other humanitarian actors in order to provide contingency stock as a last resort in instances of exceptionally high need.

 

 

Objective

To ensure independent verification and objective monitoring of activities undertaken by partners in cross-border humanitarian assistance to people affected by the Syrian crisis in Aleppo governorate.

 

Specific Objective

·         To monitor partner implementation progress and verify World Vision’s projects based on project DIPs and monthly reports.

·         To ascertain and physically validate the existence of institutions, rehabilitation and construction work supported by World Vision. Visual and video evidence will be collected.

·         To verify beneficiaries from selected geographical locations. This will include comparison of the details (names, age, sex, status etc.) in the master beneficiary list with real individuals sampled from each location based on distribution lists.

·         To investigate adherence to beneficiary selection criteria as outlined in the proposal document as well as agreed selection criterion in sector cluster working groups.

·         Examine beneficiary perceptions on the humanitarian assistance delivered by WASH cluster recommended partners

·         To verify the functionality of the complaints and response mechanism (CRM) and beneficiaries’ familiarity with the process. This will also include verification of any documented cases from this process and how such cases were handled by partners.

To generate monitoring technical reports highlighting implementation progress based on project DIPs that will be used for decision making and corrective action

 

Proposed Methodology

While the consultant/consulting firm will use experience to recommend the monitoring process and methodology, it is expected that a variety of methods will be used. Field work will involve meeting with key informants (e.g. camp elders, doctors), semi structured interviews with community leadership, in-depth individual discussions with beneficiaries, observation, videos, photographs etc. The contractor can also propose for the most suitable and appropriate process monitoring approaches that are relevant to the context. It is recommended that such methodology include the following:

·         Desk reviews of relevant project documents such as the proposal, the results framework, past project reports and studies, relevant tools for documenting and monitoring project activities, master beneficiary lists. World Vision will provide any additional information as requested by the consultant.

·         Direct interviews of randomly sampled beneficiaries, local authority representatives, village relief committees, camp elders and any other relevant project stakeholders using both quantitative and qualitative approaches

·         Project site visits – video and visual documentation of project sites i.e. infrastructure development work

·         Interviews with a representative number of IDPs in the targeted geographical locations
