    Scope of the Consultancy

    The consultant will be expected to conduct a mapping aimed at developing a baseline assessment of current available data on ODA in East and Southern Africa that is channeled towards implementation of child rights; demonstrate comparison of ODA allocated to specific child focused sectors including health, education and social protection, against other sectors- in both instances giving practical examples of the situation in particular countries within East and Southern Africa.

    • Evidence of donor allocations to child specific sectors including health, education, social protection in comparison to other sectors
    • Evidence of donor allocations to child protection programming, in conflict and humanitarian contexts in East and Southern Africa
    • Evidence of challenges that persist in ODA allocations to child protection in emergencies and systems strengthening in East and Southern Africa, and potential entry points for improving ODA allocation to these sectors
    • Concrete recommendations on use of donor allocations to child rights programmes and child protection in emergencies in East and Southern Africa
