JOB TITLE: ENDLINE SURVEY CONSULTANT
DEPARTMENT/PROJECT: PROGRAM/PfR
REPORTS TO: PROJECT MANAGER
INTRODUCTIONFive humanitarian, development and environmental organizations have joined forces as ‘Partners for Resilience Alliance’ (PfR) consisting of Netherlands Red Cross (lead agency), CARE Netherlands, Cordaid, the Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre, and Wetlands International with the aim of reducing the impact of natural hazards on vulnerable communities. The PfR Alliance has developed a 5-year, 9-country programme that addresses risk reduction in an innovative way. The programme will be implemented with partner organizations in nine countries in three continents (Nicaragua and Guatemala in Central America; Mali, Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda in Africa; India, Indonesia and the Philippines in Asia). PfR is currently the largest programme of its kind at global level, allowing unprecedented opportunity for engagement in global, regional, national and local policy dialogues for more resilient communities.

The PfR work with both rural and urban communities in areas of increasing disaster risk and environmental degradation, spurred by climate change. The main focus is on disaster risk reduction (DRR), explicitly integrating both the need to address a changing climate context, and the ecosystems context of many aspects of disaster risk. The programme is not just about community-level implementation of disaster risk reduction interventions – it is also about identifying and testing new and combined approaches to building community resilience, and sharing the lessons to promote up-scaling and influencing policy development. Through its engagement in a range of countries, PfR will be able to test approaches in a range of very different environmental, social and cultural contexts, and to draw generic lessons for subsequent global sharing, outreach and policy dialogues.
PfR program is finishing in 2015. The alliance organization is now conducting End-line study and inquiry evaluation by individual implementing organization(s) at the respective country.
