Scope of Work:
The evaluation is being conducted as agreed in the project document and in accordance with the UNDP’s Evaluation Plan, Strategic Plan, and Evaluation Policy which sets out several guiding principles, norms and criteria for evaluation within the organization. Amongst the norms that the UNDP Evaluation Policy seeks to uphold, are that the evaluation exercise should be independent, impartial and of appropriate quality, but also that it should be intentional and designed with utility in mind. The evaluation should generate relevant and useful information to support evidence-based decision making. Consequently, this evaluation has been designed with dual purposes: 1) to allow national counterparts Ministry of National Security, Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, Cities Alliance and UNDP to meet their accountability objectives, and 2) to capture good practices and lessons learned.
The evaluation will assess both the results to date (direct and indirect, whether intended or not) from its implementation as well as the likelihood of the project in meeting its end goals on the basis of current design, human resource structure, broad implementation strategy, etc. It is expected that the evaluation will follow a forward-looking approach and provide useful and actionable recommendations. In line with standard evaluation practice, the scope of the evaluation goes beyond assessing whether UNDP is currently “doing things right” in programme execution and management, to a broader assessment of whether on the basis of evidence available, the approach -- as implemented and in comparison with similar approaches implemented by others-- is likely to be the “right approach” to achieve the higher-level results agreed in the start of the project.
The evaluation will cover the entire project duration from November 2016 to December 2019. The Final Evaluation will examine the results, achievements and constraints in the Involuntary Returned Migrants project. The evaluation is intended to identify weaknesses and strengths of the project design and implementation, and evaluate the adequacy, efficiency, and effectiveness of implementation, as well as assess the achievement of project outputs and outcomes.
The findings, lessons learned and recommendations generated by the evaluation will be used by UNDP and its national counterparts to improve this and future projects and programmes and to identify strategies that contribute to achieving the main objective of the project. The results and recommendations of the evaluation will help the UNDP to document lessons learned and best practices as the organization prepares for the next programme cycle covering 2022 – 2026.
