Location: Mozambique

Description

Logistician (Mozambique)

 

Ex-post Evaluation of USAID/Mozambique’s  Strengthening Communities through Integrated Programming (SCIP) in Zambézia

 

Social Impact (SI) is a global development management consulting firm. We provide monitoring, evaluation, strategic planning, and capacity building services to advance development effectiveness. We work across all development sectors including democracy and governance, health and education, the environment, and economic growth. Since 1997 we have worked in over 100 countries for clients such as U.S. government agencies, bilateral donors, multilateral development banks, foundations, and nonprofits. 

Project Objective:

SI is a sub-contractor to   ECODIT on the Water Communications and Knowledge Management (CKM) Project, a five-year task order under the Water and Development IDIQ (WADI) supporting the work of USAID’s Water Office in the Bureau for Economic Growth, Education and Environment (E3/W). A key SI role in the CKM project is to conduct a series of performance evaluations of closed USAID-funded water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) projects to further USAID’s understanding of the extent to which the achievements of their WASH activities have been sustained, and reasons why these outcomes and activities have or have not been sustained.

 

USAID funded the Strengthening Communities through Integrated Programming (SCIP) in Zambézia province Mozambique from 2009-2014. SCIP was implemented by World Vision and the activity aimed to “improve the health and livelihoods of women, children and families in Zambézia Province by pursuing an integrated, innovative, and sustainable community-based program supporting cross-sector integration of USAID's development actions in the province.” This ex-post performance evaluation will examine the long-term sustainability of the SCIP activity’s approach to improve rural water supply and sanitation.
