Individual Consultancy is required to review  the pilot phase of Child Report Card in Dodoma ,Songwe and Iringa Regions and to inform the scale up.
Recommended:

How can you make a difference?
BACKGROUND
In 2018, UNICEF has started supporting PORALG to develop and pilot a child rights monitoring report card. The report card design was approved by PORALG management following an assessment and consultation process. The report card has been piloted in three regions and six districts namely Dodoma (Kondoa and Dodoma City), Iringa (Iringa MC and Kilolo DC) and Songwe (Momba and Mbozi DC).  The aim of  introducing the Child Monitoring Report Card has been to  decision makers such as District Executive Directors (DEDs), councilors, District Administrative Assistant (DAS), District Commissioners (DC), at district levels and regional levels (Regional Commissioner- RC, Regional Administrative Secretary-RAS) to make informed decisions on the basis of a snap-shot overview (report card) of critical indicators on child well-being progress and on child-focused service delivery and program and budget performance.
Recommended:
The project was implemented in four phases where Phase 1: Assessment of situation of child related data availability, quality, needs and use; Phase 2: Development of the child right report card; Phase 3: Integration of the child right report card into the IMES Phase 4: Evaluation of the pilot Phase to inform the development of scale up plan. The Phases 1, 2 and 4 have been completed. In the course of pilot phase, the following products were made available:  final pilot report, the design overview (PowerPoint), the template used during pilot, sample report cards, the manuals. These are the main sources for the review.

There are several ongoing initiatives that can inform development and facilitate the institutionalisation of a report card for child-focused indicators. At LGA level, PO-RALG has developed a comprehensive Monitoring and Evaluation Framework for the period 2016/17-2020/21 and the Integrated Monitoring and Evaluation System (IMES) designed by PO-RALG, under support of PS3. In addition, Tanzania has made considerable efforts towards introducing a central management information system in the context of the Tanzania Statistical Master Plan. The USAID/Tanzania Public Sector Systems Strengthening (PS3) project supports the Government of Tanzania to strengthen public sector systems to promote the delivery, quality, and use of services, particularly for underserved populations.

This assignment therefore seeks an individual national consultant who has an extensive experience of working on Child rights and wellbeing with LGAs on data management issues or monitoring and evaluation to support to carry out an evaluation of the pilot phase of a child rights monitoring report card. 

PUPPOSE AND OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY
Purpose of the review
The purpose of this review is to provide evidence to fine-tune the design, finalize process steps, prepare IMES integration, and prepare scale up plan for the child report card.

Objectives
The overall objective of this assignment is to evaluate the pilot phase of the child rights monitoring report card at district and region levels of Tanzania Mainland.

The specific objectives of this assignment are:

SCOPE OF WORK
The aim of this assignment is to conduct a review of pilot phase of child report Card that was tested in six districts of Kilolo, Iringa MC, Dodoma City, Kondoa DC, Momba DC and Mbozi DC. The study will take place in all six districts so as to get a better overview of the variety of experiences and capture different challenges faced by LGAs in the course of using the Child report card. The focus of this study is in terms of what we learned from the pilot (e.g. on capacity, on user-friendliness of the template, feasibility in terms of accessing data, review of the manuals, on the data environment, the user perspective) and how that can inform design, implementation process, and integration into IMES. The study will focus on the number of reports card produced at district level, number of staff trained on the use of the report card and number of times the data from the child report card have been discussed in decision making bodies at council level. The consultant is required to produce a 20-pager assessment report with well-polished executive summary excluding appendices.

Background
Tanzania has sustained a relatively high economic growth over the last decade, averaging 6–7% on an annual basis (World Bank 2019), and attracted solid foreign direct investment of about $3 billion in 2018 (NBS 2019). Some of the main growth drivers included the mining sector in 2017 (BoT 2018).
In the past decade, the aid landscape has changed quite significantly in the country where direct budget support has shown a declining trend and at the same time there is a shift from aid dependency to increasing self-reliance with the expanding of the Government’s tax base and the growing role played by the non-traditional donors. In addition, the Sustainable Development Agenda 2030 has placed additional emphasis on expanding and deepening partnerships to mobilize the necessary resources for realizing the Global Goals in every country. Alternative sources of finance such as green and blue bonds, blended finance and impact investing are currently being explored.
Within this context and informed by the Kaberuka Process, the Government of Tanzania (GoT) and the Development Partners (DPs) agreed on a new Development Cooperation Framework (DCF) in 2017 which forms the basis for effective development dialogue with potential new DPs, opens up development financing opportunities and enhances mutual accountability between Government and the DPs. This has contributed to a wider approach on development cooperation and indeed the traditional development partnership, going beyond donor harmonization and alignment.
The Development Partners Group (DPG) promotes the implementation of the agreed DCF in Tanzania with a view to support national efforts to achieve the country’s growth and poverty reduction goals. Formalized in 2004, the DPG has been facilitating coordination and harmonization and alignment of DPs’ policy priorities within the framework of dialogue between Government and the DPs. There is a DPG Main Group and DPG sectoral groups with the first being co-chaired permanently by the UN Resident Coordinator and on a rotational basis by a bilateral agency.
In 2016-17 UNDP provided secretariat support to the DPG Main and the DPG co-chairs in the form of the DPG Secretariat. The DPG Secretariat played a facilitation role, advising the DPG Co-Chairs and contributing, including substantively, to a renewed strategic dialogue between the DPG and the GoT, in particular the Ministry of Finance and Planning (MoFP). This was mainly related to the Kaberuka process and the new Development Cooperation Framework. In doing so, the DPG Secretariat contributed to a representative and consensus- oriented engagement between Government and its bilateral and multilateral DPs. In addition, the DPG Secretariat provided secretariat support to several DPG working groups, including the Poverty Monitoring Group, the Public Financial Management DPG and the Environment DPG. With regards to the latter, this assistance contributed to advancing their coordination agenda and harmonization of efforts to support the Government priorities.
Since then, UNDP has continued to support the MoFP in both mainland and Zanzibar to lead the planning, budgeting and reporting functions for the national and global frameworks under the ongoing ‘Enhancing Results for Development Results and Effectiveness’ Project. Up to late 2018 the former UNDP Head of the DPG Secretariat was also leading this project. The Project has among others supported the data collection, analysis and visualization for Tanzania’s Volunteer National Review (VNR) which was presented in 2019 at the High-Level Meeting in New York.
UNDP supported the development of a new National Coordination Framework for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which is in the final stages of government approval, it includes among others an SDG National Coordination Task Force whose Secretariat is led by the MoFP and Zanzibar Planning Commission. The DPG together with the UN Resident Coordinator’s Office and other key stakeholders are foreseen to play a key role as members of this Coordination Task Force.

UNDP, in response to the request from MoFP, will provide support to the Government in implementing the SDGs Coordination Framework through the ongoing ‘Enhancing Results for Development Results and Effectiveness’ Project.
In October 2019, the DPG Co-Chairs indicated to UNDP the need to continue this strategic support to the DPG. UNDP has therefore committed to reinstate its support to the DPG Secretariat and to re-establish the P4 Position of Development Management Specialist with a contribution of $100,000. There is a balance of $150,000 that needs to be filled by development partners and would be very welcome.

Background
In 2017, the UN system in Tanzania embarked on area-based joint programming through the launching of the UN Kigoma Joint Programme (KJP). The KJP cuts across multiple sectors and aims to contribute to the Government’s efforts in improving development and human security in the Kigoma region. The programme, involves 17 different UN Agencies and was developed in cooperation with the regional secretariat and district authorities, based on the development needs of Kigoma and the comparative advantages of the UN in Tanzania.
By supporting the host population as well as refugees and migrants, the programme forms part of the New Way of Working (NWOW). It focuses on joint analysis, planning and interventions to achieve common outcomes that reduce risks and vulnerabilities, and contributes to a future in which no one is left behind. The humanitarian-development nexus is supported by linking together the UN’s existing response to refugees and migrants with an increased focus on development for host communities.
The 17 participating UN agencies are cooperating across 7 themes which are: Sustainable energy and environment; Youth and women’s economic empowerment; Ending violence against women and children; Education with a focus on girls and young women; WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene); Agriculture with a focus on developing local markets; and Health, HIV and Nutrition
The KJP is embedded in UNDAP II, the UN Development Assistance Plan for Tanzania, as well as the Sustainable Development Goals and the Great Lakes Regional Framework strategy. It is aligned with the Tanzania Government’s 5-year plan and the regional priorities for Kigoma.
