Duties and Responsibilities

The consultancy will be conducted over two phases as follows:

Phase 1: Update CCA 2023; February to June 2023
Tasks for updating the CCA:
a. Meet with UNRCO and PMT to clarify expectations.
b. Elaborate an inception report for the CCA update with clear tasks and timelines; including tools to be used for Focus Groups Discussions (FGDs), Key Informant Interviews (KIIs).
c. In collaboration with RCO, the Consultant will be expected to provide substantive review and to re-write the CCA draft sections as per Annex I - Roles and Responsibilities.
d. The CCA process must ensure inclusivity in both function and form. In this regard, a consultative process with key stakeholders is required. Therefore, the consultant will be expected to:
i. Where necessary, conduct Focus Group Discussions (FGDs), Key Informant Interviews (KIIs) and general field observations, in collaboration with RCO, and respective agency(s).
ii. Ensure the voices of the beneficiaries are captured. This will require competence in the facilitation of the discussions with eloquence in the use of both the local language (Kinyarwanda) as well as English to ensure participation of participants in the language they are most competent in.
iii. Upon group or individual consent, the FGDs and KIIs will be recorded, and the consultant will be required to translate and transcribe all sessions into English including establishing a repository which will be handed over to RCO after the assignment.
iv. Conduct additional consultations in the select groups of Ministries and Government Departments; representatives of the Civil Society Organisations; Private Sector and academia world.

Phase 2: Production of the UNSDCF From July 2023 to March 2024
Tasks for the development of the UNSDCF 2024
a. Elaborate an inception report for the UNSDCF in consultation with the RCO and PMT,
b. Building from the CCA and UNSDCF evaluation findings and recommendations, facilitate a participatory and inclusive workshop to prioritise strategic areas that will frame the Theory of Change and the results matrix.
c. A theory of change approach must be illustrated to help the UNCT, together with Government and other stakeholders, to deliberately choose areas with the greatest potential for transformative and inclusive development. The CF seeks to catalyse positive changes in sustainable development as well as acceleration towards the realization of the SDGS.
d. Facilitate a dedicated and joint PMT/UNCT consultation to undertake a prioritisation process by which the challenges and opportunities identified in the CCA and evaluation report are narrowed to a few areas of change that the UN will strategically focus on (i.e. Review challenges and opportunities identified in the CCA; identify 5 to 10 intervention areas with the greatest ripple effects and dive deeper to agree on 3 to 5 development solutions that the UN Rwanda is best placed to support considering national, regional and global context and the need to focus on structural, root and systemic factors.
e. Develop the results framework; translate the theory of change into a detailed results chain and specify the necessary conditions, risks, assumptions, and possible mitigation strategies that need to be met to support Rwanda in achieving UNSDCF outcomes and impacts. This takes place in two iterative steps: (i) Define the results for the duration of the UNSDCF and clarify the assumptions made. Show the link between the results and the assumptions. (ii) Define performance measurements. The results framework follows results-based management terminology and logic at three levels: impact, outcomes, and outputs.
f. In collaboration with PMT and RCO draft the new UNSDCF.
