Kenya: Outcome Mapping and Harvesting Consultant

Organization: Pact
Country: Kenya
Closing date: 16 Jan 2018

At the heart of Pact is the promise of a better tomorrow. A nonprofit international development organization founded in 1971, Pact works on the ground in nearly 40 countries to improve the lives of those who are challenged by poverty and marginalization. We serve these communities because we envision a world where everyone owns their future. To do this, we build systemic solutions in partnership with local organizations, businesses, and governments that create sustainable and resilient communities where those we serve are heard, capable, and vibrant.
Pact is a recognized global leader in international development. Our staff have a range of expertise in areas including public health, capacity development, governance and civil society, natural resource management, poverty, fragile states, monitoring and evaluation, small-scale and artisanal mining, microfinance and more. This expertise is combined with Pact’s unique integrated approach, which focuses on systemic changes needed to improve people’s lives.
JOINT SCOPE OF WORK
Pact’s two new EUTF projects (SEEK and RASMI) is interested to ensure qualitative data and analysis elements to the project MERL framework and wants to initiate Outcome Mapping and Harvesting to generate more robust and verifiable insights into expected project results. The two projects are particularly interested in capturing “behavior writ large” (such as actions, relationships, policies, practices) of one or more social actors influenced by an intervention. For example, a religious leader making a proclamation that is unprecedented and considered to be important; a change in the behavior between organizations or between communities; changes in regulations, formal laws or cultural norms. Unlike some M&E approaches, Outcome Mapping and Harvesting does not measure progress towards predetermined objectives or outcomes, but rather, collects evidence of what has changed and, then, working backwards, determines whether and how an intervention contributed to these changes. The outcome(s) can be positive or negative, intended or unintended, direct or indirect, but the connection between the intervention and the outcomes must be plausible. Information is collected or “harvested” using a range of methods to yield evidence-based answers to useful, actionable questions (“harvesting questions”). This work is to be carried out jointly, with the Project Team, the CD/ MERL M&E Advisor, MERL officer and a short term international consultant.
