Consultant Evaluation of the Emergency Assistance to Internally Displaced Women and Girls and Survivors of SGBV in Nigeria - (2016-2017)

22 Oct 2018


Purpose and use of Evaluation

The evaluation will serve a dual and mutually reinforcing learning and accountability purpose as it provides an opportunity to (i) consolidate learning from what worked and what could be done differently in improving emergency assistance to internally displaced women and girls and survivors of SGBV; and (ii) offer evidence-informed recommendations geared towards building gender-sensitive assistance in IDP camps and host communities, including access to skills acquisitions and improved livelihoods. The evaluation is also expected to identify the internal and external enabling factors and challenges to Nigeria CO’s performance on emergency response in such a complex environment.

UN Women Nigeria, the government of Japan and relevant partners in Nigeria will be the prime users of this evaluation. The evaluation will also be used to inform the ongoing corporate Thematic Evaluation of UN Women’s Contribution to Humanitarian Action and will inform and influence strategies, priorities, approaches, decisions and actions needed to scale-up and sustain an effective gender responsive intervention in crisis situation.


The specific objectives of the evaluation are to:

  • Assess the relevance and contributions of the interventions to the humanitarian agenda in Nigeria;
  • Assess effectiveness and organizational efficiency in progressing towards the achievement of GEWE in humanitarian action;
  • Identify intervention gaps, lessons learned, good practices and examples of innovation that could be replicated or used to inform future projects;
  • Propose relevant recommendations based on the evaluation results and outcomes to UN Women’s humanitarian action in Nigeria; and
  • Assess how the human rights-based approach and gender equality principles are integrated into the work in humanitarian action.
