    Implementation phase: 1/07/2016 to 30/11/2019

    Program budget :SEK 91 million

    1. Program Background

    The overall objective of this program is to contribute to resilient and equitable agricultural growth from which small-scale women and men producers will benefit in the oPt. The specific objective is to increase the wellbeing and income of women and men engaged in small-scale agriculture in vulnerable communities through improved agricultural and market systems in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip.

    Through the Theory of Change, the program aims to catalyze and establish better functioning market services led by the private sector in collaboration with the public sector. The approach establishes extension and training services and new business models, based on a strong small-scale producers (SSP) supply base. The program contributes to developing more equitable agricultural production and more resilient market systems for SSPs in the oPt, which leads to an increase in production, quality, profitability, and competitiveness of fresh- and processed fruits and vegetables. In addition, the program advocates for more enabling and inclusive policy and planning frameworks. Oxfam, furthermore, will continue to raise awareness of the Government of Israel (GoI) violations of IHL and IHRL affecting the agricultural sector in the oPt.

    1. Purpose of the Evaluation and Specific objectives

    OXFAM and partners have for many years applied a Market System Development (MSD) approach in its support to strengthen markets in West Bank & Gaza Strip. Given the de-development context in OPT on top of the protracted crises, specially, in the Gaza Strip; OXFAM initiated a hybrid approach mixing MSD facilitative approach with smart subsidies/ delivery to further incentivize market actors and share the risks of investing in a fragile context in addition to ensure targeted business resilience and buy-in for the newly introduced models. OXFAM expects to apply the hybrid MSD approach to broader program areas and to use it more widely in the future.

    The purpose of this evaluation is to conduct an external final review of the program funded by Sweden: ‘Developing Equitable Agricultural Production and Market Systems for Resilient Economic Development in the occupied Palestinian Territory’, and to support Sweden, OXFAM and partners to review program implementation and achieved results, as well as provide concrete recommendations for future programming.

    This evaluation has two purposes: (1) back looking to review the implementation process and assess the programme’s impact and sustainability; (2) forward looking to document and generate lessons learnt and recommendations on how OXFAM may create favourable conditions for systems approaches and adaptive programming contributing to the improvement of its future MSD/ hybrid MSD programming

    This evaluation is expected to assess and document the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impact, and sustainability of this program, on the basis of a market systems development approach. It is expected that the evaluation will enable Oxfam and implementing partners to review program progress and performance against planned outputs and outcomes, identify program achievements, challenges, opportunities, and document lessons learnt and recommendations to guide the overall management and implementation of the future interventions within this program during the remaining period.

    The evaluation shall specifically seek to achieve the following:

    • To assess the extent to which the program objectives have been achieved.

    • To assess the level of achievement of the program against its expected results (indicators),

    • To assess the extent of integration of key cross-cutting issues including gender equality, conflict sensitivity and advocacy (influencing) in program design and implementation.

    • To assess the implementation approach (market system development approach) and how effectively the MSD/hybrid approach is adapted and utilized in program design and implementation.

    • To assess the program’s value for money and on the realization or potential realization of systemic change at market system level.

    • To assess the achievements of the different intervention strategies, the associated exit strategies, and the of sustainability of these interventions and of effecting market system changes.

    • To assess the effectiveness of the developed market development strategies per targeted outcome and output as outlined in the Program Document.

    • To assess key internal and external factors (positive and negative) that contributed to, affected or impeded program progress.

    • To assess the design, planning, implementation, and management of the program for Oxfam and its partners.

    • To assess the degree to which the observed changes can be attributed to the program.

    • To assess how the programme adjusted and responded based on the MTR recommendations for the remaining period of the programme.

    • To identify and document key lessons learnt and good practice, providing short-term and long-term recommendations for the future programming.

    Organization: Search for Common Ground
    Country: United States of America
    Closing date: 24 Jan 2020

    Position Summary

    Search is seeking an early career researcher for a six-month fixed-term contribution to a multi-year regional project in the Middle East and North Africa region. The project aims to identify risks and meet the immediate and medium-term atrocity prevention and response needs of religious and ethnic minority (REM) populations in MENA. This position reports to the project’s Deputy Chief of Party.

    In the past decade, the Internet and social media have been used to fuel interethnic or religious violence. In order to analyze the contribution of these communications to current landscapes of violence in the MENA region, the consultant will work to develop a statistical framework to examine influencers and leaders’ speech on social media and its correlation with the rise in violence towards a certain group in the four target countries. By building on existing academic studies that display how online speech in newspapers, blogs, public commentary, Facebook, and Twitter comments can be predictive of violence and armed conflict, the consultant will analyze whether there is any correlation between select social media narratives and the perpetuation of violence/atrocities. To the extent possible, this statistical analysis will consider gender, although the gender identity of individuals on social media may not always be apparent.

    Somalia: REACH Assessment Officer (M&E) - Cash Consortia in Somalia

    Background on Impact and REACH

    REACH was born in 2010 as a joint initiative of two International NGOs (IMPACT Initiatives and ACTED) and the United Nations Operational Satellite Applications Programme (UNOSAT).

    IMPACT Initiatives is a humanitarian NGO, based in Geneva, Switzerland. The organisation manages several initiatives, including the REACH Initiative. The IMPACT team comprises specialists in data collection, management and analysis and GIS. IMPACT was launched at the initiative of ACTED, an international NGO whose headquarter is based in Paris and is present in thirty countries.

    Somalia: REACH GIS/Information Management Officer in Somalia

    Fri, 10 Jan 2020 17:03:48 +0000

    Organization: IMPACT Initiatives
    Country: Somalia
    Closing date: 17 Jan 2020

    REACH GIS/Information Management Officer (WASH Cluster) in Somalia

    (Reference: 20/SOM/GISO/IM01)

    Background on Impact and REACH

    REACH was born in 2010 as a joint initiative of two International NGOs (IMPACT Initiatives and ACTED) and the United Nations Operational Satellite Applications Programme (UNOSAT). REACH’s purpose is to promote and facilitate the development of information products that enhance the humanitarian community’s decision making and planning capacity for emergency, reconstruction and development contexts. REACH facilitates information management for aid actors through three complementary services: (a) need and situation assessments facilitated by REACH teams; (b) situation analysis using satellite imagery; (c) provision of related database and (web)-mapping facilities and expertise.

    IMPACT Initiatives is a humanitarian NGO, based in Geneva, Switzerland. The organisation manages several initiatives, including the REACH Initiative. The IMPACT team comprises specialists in data collection, management and analysis and GIS. IMPACT was launched at the initiative of ACTED, an international NGO whose headquarter is based in Paris and is present in thirty countries. The two organizations have a strong complementarity formalized in a global partnership, enabling IMPACT to benefit from ACTED’s operational support on its fields of intervention.

    We are currently looking for a REACH GIS Officer to support our programming in Somalia.
