JIPS 2020 Strategy External Evaluation

Fri, 03 Jul 2020 16:09:07 +0000

Country: Switzerland
Organization: Danish Refugee Council
Closing date: 10 Jul 2020

ACKGROUND
JIPS – the Joint IDP Profiling Service – is an inter-agency service based in Geneva, Switzerland. JIPS is supervised by an Executive Committee comprised of the Danish Refugee Council (DRC), the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC), the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), the Office of the Special Rapporteur on the human rights of IDPs, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

JIPS' goal is to promote collaborative responses and solutions for internally displaced persons (IDPs) across the world by equipping governments, humanitarian organisations and development actors with reliable and agreed upon information about IDP situations. These insights are generated from data collected and disaggregated by sex, age, location and diversity in the affected countries that ask for our support. Read more about JIPS
Since it was established in 2009, JIPS has evolved through five phases, each guided by a strategy document. These included a 'pilot' phase to explore and clarify its role and added value, a ‘transition’ into a more permanent service, ‘consolidation and development’ of its support services, becoming ‘an established service’ and, most recently, providing 'actionable and agreed upon displacement data'.

OBJECTIVES
The overall objective of the consultancy is to work with the JIPS team to draft a 3-year strategy for endorsement by the JIPS ExCom. The consultant will contribute to this objective through the following activities:

  1. Through a literature review and consultations with stakeholders, review the scope, effectiveness and impact of JIPS' current work as outlined in the 2018-20 strategy, and identify future priorities and opportunities.

  2. Co-facilitate a 2-3 day internal JIPS workshop to unpack findings from the literature review and consultations phase and prepare an outline of the strategy.

  3. Based on feedback from the Advisory Group and ExCom, work with JIPS team members to finalise the strategy document.

METHODOLOGY
The evaluation will be undertaken primarily through a document review and key informant interviews that take place over a 4-week period. An initial package of documents and relevant contacts will be provided to the consultant to facilitate this work. JIPS staff will assist the consultant in scheduling interviews and provide a set of discussion areas and questions to help guide the interviews. Thematic areas will include the following:
● Profiling of forced displacement situations
● National capacity development
● Durable solutions analysis
● Urban displacement analysis
● National data systems
● Field support and capacity building
● Expert Group on Refugee and IDP Statistics (EGRIS)
● Data responsibility
● Community engagement
