    Consultant Terms of Reference - Parenting without Violence


    The review is expected to use different types of documents (e.g. project proposals, technical/grant reports, evaluation reports) as the primary data source. Building on the previous review, a database can be created where the unit of observation is individual cases of adaptation/replication of the PwV Common Approach. The review should determine the important dimensions/variables for which information should be compiled before starting the manual desk review. Although the study may take an iterative approach in collating information, interviews of a few key informants at an early stage can be crucial in constructing the list of variables for completeness and feasibility. A few suggested dimensions for this data collation are listed here - background information (e.g., country, grant size, duration), type of adaptation (e.g., specific components of the common approach incorporated in the project), nature of the project (e.g., humanitarian vs. development, stand-alone intervention of PwV vs. as a component of other core activities, direct implementation/partnership, primary/secondary school), output/outcomes achieved. Information on all the dimensions should be systematically compiled for each case (wherever available). This data can be used for both quantitative (e.g., summary statistics of adoption of different components, correlates of full/partial uptake) and qualitative (e.g., identifying common challenges, examples of innovations) analyses.

    For cases of PwV uptake that have (impact) evaluation reports, the review should discuss the findings along with the types of evaluations. Variations in the impact findings should be analyzed across relevant characteristics in the implementation of the PwV. This may include additional analysis of the data sets produced for those evaluations.

    The review should incorporate meta-analysis for selected outcomes, e.g. those measured by the following indicators:

    • Proportion of boys and girls aged 1-17 years who experienced any physical punishment and/ or psychological aggression by caregivers in the past month.
    • % of male and female caregivers who believe that physical and humiliating punishment is necessary to raise children
    • % of male and female caregivers who report positive caregiver-child relationships
    • % of boys and girls who have improved psychosocial wellbeing
    • % of boys and girls with increased resilience protective factors
    • % of boys and girls who report positive caregiver-child relationships

    The scoping for post-intervention/long-term impact should consider information on the quality of implementation (from monitoring data/interviews), evidence of short-term impact, and feasibility of a “comparison group” to establish causality.

    Information gathered from these documents can be supplemented by primary data collected from key informants from country offices. This may include the Child Protection technical advisors in a few country offices and/or regional offices purposefully selected by the level of uptake of this Common Approach.
