CONSULTANT - LEARNING WORKSHOP LEAD RAPPORTEUR
 
BACKGROUND

Every year in Nigeria one million children die before reaching their 5th birthday. This translates into the deaths of 2,740 children every day. Over a third of these deaths are linked to malnutrition. Statistics like this make Nigeria, along with six other countries, responsible for 50% of the global deaths of under-fives due to malnutrition. These death rates make it impossible for Nigeria, and Africa, to achieve Millennium Development Goal 4 by the target date of 2015.

Working to Improve Nutrition in Northern Nigeria (WINNN) is funded by UK’s Department for International Development and implemented by UNICEF, Action Against Hunger (ACF) and Save the Children International (SCI), in partnership with the Federal Government of Nigeria and the State Governments of Jigawa, Katsina, Kebbi, Yobe and Zamfara. The overall objective of the project is to reduce mortality through decreasing the incidence and prevalence of under nutrition in Nigeria with focus on Jigawa, Katsina, Kebbi, Yobe and Zamfara States.

The WINNN programme aims to build the capacity of the state and LGAs to implement nutrition interventions as routine services through existing PHC structures and to use evidence-based advocacy to improve political commitment, to and government funding for nutrition interventions.

WINNN’s goal is to improve nutritional status of children under five in Northern Nigeria with an expected outcome of nutrition interventions been delivered through routine health services, funded by the Government of Nigeria.

The expected results of the project are:
Sustainability built into programme design such that States and LGAs owned nutrition programme activities with appropriate resources allocation.
Communities and CSOs sustain support to treatment and prevention of SAM
Improved GAM, SAM and child mortality rates
Improved appropriate knowledge, attitude, behaviour and practices towards nutrition, such as exclusive ---feeding, complementary feeding, etc.
Scope of Work
WINNN will host a 4-day workshop in Lagos to capture the learning and best practices from the programme since inception in September 2011.
The lead rapporteur(s) for this workshop will take note on the main findings, conclusions and recommendations of each state presentation and questions surfaced during the sessions.
The rapporteur will also prepare a detailed final summary report to be presented to Save the Children.

REFERENCE NUMBER: 2017IYCFBCC03

INTRODUCTION

The nutritional status of women when becoming pregnant and during pregnancy can have significant influence on both fetal, infant and maternal health outcomes. Micronutrient deficiencies (Hidden Hunger) such as calcium, iron, vitamin A and iodine can lead to poor maternal health outcomes and pregnancy complications which put the mother and baby at risk. Poor maternal weight gain in pregnancy due to an inadequate diet, increases the risk of premature delivery, low birth weight and birth defects.[1]
Nutrition education and counselling seek to improve nutrition practices before and during pregnancy to improve maternal nutrition and reduce the risk of poor health outcomes in both mothers and their children. Nutrition education and counselling focus on enhancing the quality of the diet, by educating women on which foods and what quantities they need to consume in order to achieve optimal dietary intake. This can also include counselling on the use of micronutrient supplements recommended during pregnancy, such as multiple micronutrient supplements containing iron and folic acid.

CONSULTANT - FINAL EVALUATION OF THE JOINT RESPONSE FOR NIGERIA PHASE 2 UNDER THE DUTCH RELIEF ALLIANCE (DRA)

PURPOSE OF THE EVALUATION

The NJR2 has a contractual obligation towards the donor, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to ensure the realization of an evaluation. The purpose for this evaluation is twofold. On the one hand, the evaluation report will assess the performance of the NJR2 and ensures accountability towards the Dutch Government and public. On the other, it offers a learning aspect for all stakeholders. The evaluation should identify key lessons learned from NJR2, substantial anecdotal evidence of the value of collaboration for the delivery of humanitarian aid though NJR2 and recommendations for NJR phase 3. We hope to be able to use the preliminary findings as input for phase 3, which starts on 16th of May 2017.

Objective 1:
Evaluate to what extent NJR2 has delivered effective, efficient, relevant and timely humanitarian aid to beneficiaries as set in the log frame.

Objective 2:
Evaluate how collaboration between NJR2 partners contributed/can contribute to the delivery of effective, efficient, relevant and timely aid for beneficiaries and assess whether the collaboration between NJR2 members had added value towards the beneficiaries and other stakeholders (local partners, local NGO sector, local Government, Dutch NGOs, Dutch NGO sector, MoFA, Dutch public)? What gives added value and what does not?

Objective 3:
Assess the key lessons learned and establish recommendations for NJR3. The added value of collaboration towards the beneficiaries as well as the other stakeholders (especially the local partners) are important to assess.

Deliverables
The consultant is expected to lead, accomplish and submit the following deliverables within the agreed time frame and budget:
