Kurzbeschreibung:

Projektziel


The main purpose of the consultancy is to (a) assist ADA's Evaluation unit in the process of developing an adequate training format and the related training modules; (b) function as co-facilitator/moderator during the six virtual training sessions planned for 2020 and 2021; (c) and to finalize the training modules based on an after-action review following the three pilot training sessions.


Erwartete Ergebnisse


The following results are expected:

Six virtual training sessions on the 2020 ADA Guidelines for Programme and Project Evaluation conducted between November 2020 and September 2021.

Training modules for the training sessions developed and in use.

A total of 60 to 80 key stakeholders trained on the use of the 2020 ADA Guidelines for Programme and Project Evaluations and able to understand and apply them in practice.


Zielgruppe


The target group for the guidelines are (a) ADA staff at HQ and at the ADC Coordination Offices in the partner countries and (b) ADA implementing partners when managing and providing quality assurance to PP Evaluations. It is planned to reach approximately 80 persons with the six trainings sessions planned for 2020 and 2021.


Maßnahmen


It is suggested that two of the six training sessions planned for Q4 2020 to Q3 2021 target (a) ADA management at Programmes and Projects International (PPI) and at the ADC Coordination Offices (COs) in the partner countries (on the chapter II and III – guiding principles and management types, roles and responsibilities) and (b) all ADA staff at HQ and in the field responsible for managing PP evaluations or providing quality assurance. This will help implement the new guidelines as smoothly as possible in the context of work programming for 2021. It will also be important to enable colleagues to apply the new step-by-step guidance and related tools for PP evaluations that are in the planning or design phase. It is further suggested that some of the training sessions will include key implementing partners – either exclusively or, for certain training modules, paired with the relevant organisational units at ADA or in the COs.


With regards to the training format, the training sessions will be planned as virtual sessions due to Covid19 precautionary measures. The training should provide guidance on all three key parts of the new guidelines: guiding principles (chapter II), evaluation management types and respective roles and responsibilities (chapter III) as well as the step by step guidance along the evaluation process and relevant tools (chapter IV and annexes). The duration of the training sessions is estimated with three to four hours. The language of the training material will be English to make it accessible to as many as possible ADA staff and implementing partners, the language of the virtual training sessions will be adapted to the audience.

 


Hintergrundinformation


In July 2020, ADA published updated Guidelines for Programme and Project evaluations (PP evaluations) to promote evaluation quality and use. The guidelines set new guiding principles for when and how to evaluate programmes and projects funded or implemented by ADA, redefine the types of evaluation management and outline related roles and responsibilities. They also provide step-by-step guidance along the evaluation process – from design, implementation to use – as well as practical tools to implement the guidance.
