Project tender detail
Please see attached brief for more information.
Red Cross is undertaking this evaluation to check the effectiveness of community disaster resilience activities delivered as part of the NRRRP CRT Project. We want to understand what works in preparing and supporting communities impacted by disasters such as floods; and what could be improved to strengthen the evidence base for Red Cross’s work in communities impacted by a changing climate. The key evaluation questions ask:
1) Were the CRTs well designed and delivered/supported?
2) Were the activities relevant and appropriate?
3) To what extent were intended outcomes achieved and what was Red Cross’ contribution?
4) Will the practices endure beyond Red Cross’ involvement?
5) What are the lessons learned (including unintended effects)?
We would like the evaluator to detail a methodology and design they deem suitable for this study as part of the tender process. Realist evaluation could be a potentially interesting methodology as we are interested in what works for whom, in which circumstances, and why. CRTs are highly adaptable to context and so are implemented differently in each community. While we are flexible on evaluation design, we do anticipate the evaluation will focus on the experiences and perceptions of community members to assess their changing levels of resilience and confidence to cope with disasters. We anticipate that this evaluation will include extensive fieldwork including site visits and discussions with community members and other stakeholders in a minimum of two communities per LGA plus at least two First Nations communities (e.g., minimum 14 communities – at least 2 of these must be First Nations). In your proposal, please detail the proposed methods and minimum number of respondents.
