Practical Action is an international development organisation putting ingenious ideas to work so people in poverty can change their world. We have been implementing the project: Promoting Resilient Pastoralist Livelihoods Project in Turkana County, Kenya for 3 years from April 2016 to April 2019.
The project’s overarching goal was to contribute to enhancement of climate change resilience for pastoralists’ livelihoods, hence making them better adapted to the consequences of climate change and better prepared to respond to drought to prevent recurrent drought related humanitarian situations.
Practical Action conducts project evaluations as part of its commitment to result based management of programs, and is currently seeking the services of a consultant or consultancy firm to undertake the final project evaluation of the above mentioned project.
The objectives of the evaluation are to:
The project will do this by improving access to clean drinking water from an improved source for 48,000 individuals, including pastoralists, in rural arid and semi-arid in Turkana County, north west Kenya.
The project seeks the services of a consultant or consultancy firm to carry out a comprehensive baseline survey in the project areas to generate first-hand information to be used for project planning and for monitoring and evaluation (M&E). The baseline will serve as a benchmark to measure progress, as well as provide information to a wider stakeholder group on understanding water access situation as well as policies and regulations that support water management in Turkana County.
The purpose of the baseline survey is to collect baseline data for key project indicators which will be monitored during project implementation to assess progress as well as the project impact. Baseline indicators to be assessed include:
Number of people in the target areas accessing water – access to water will be defined and presented according to the JMP ladder of access
Water storage/treatment practices
Prevalence of water and hygiene related diseases in the project area
Ability of households to pay for management of the water facilities
Operation and maintenance of water supply facilities and relevant cost for the services
Policy and regulation framework that support water management in Turkana County
Gender and girls’ empowerment
Responsibility of family members for family/household water supply
Average school attendance for schools in the project area (disaggregated for boys and girls)
Livelihoods and economic stability
Sources of livelihood for the communities in the target areas
