We Seek Evaluators for External End Evaluation
Civic Engagement Alliance is looking for evaluators to conduct an end evaluation of its strategic partnership with The Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs “Dialogue and Dissent”. The evaluator is expected to team up with consultants (preferably from own network), based in the 3-4 countries to be selected for this evaluation.
Civic Engagement Alliance solicits for Expressions of Interest from qualified evaluators / evaluation teams to carry out the external end evaluation of the 5 year strategic partnership we are currently executing with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Civic Engagement Alliance are involved in a strategic partnership ‘Dialogue and Dissent’ which aims to ensure that in and by this partnership civil society organizations (CSOs) and civil society at large, both in the ‘global south’ as well as in the overall global context, can contribute to decreasing inequality and injustice in societies and work towards inclusive development.
The Alliance, a collaboration between Dutch and Southern CSOs, is made up of trade unions, education and development organizations, linked to (Christian) organizations and constituencies in the Netherlands and other similar international networks. The Alliance’s members contribute their expertise in the fields of inclusive development, capacity development, labor rights, strengthening small-scale farmers, vocational training and working with the private sector, with a focus on the agri-food sector. The current program focuses on capacity development for Lobby and Advocacy, and Lobby and advocacy itself
The purpose of the evaluation is to strengthen effective future implementation of lobby and advocacy initiatives by the Civic Engagement Alliance, based on learning from the actual results and the (effectivity of the) implementation strategies followed. The evaluation will give equal attention to learning and accountability.
