The Sahel Women Empowerment Demographic Dividend (SWEDD) project’s development objective is to increase women and adolescent girls’ empowerment and their access to quality reproductive, maternal, child, and new born health services.
The first component of the project is to generate demand for RMNCH services by promoting social and behaviour changes and empowering women and girls.
Under this component, The Regional Steering Committee is setting up a regional evaluation mechanism to select programmes focused on empowering young women across the six SWEDD countries (Burkina Faso, Chad, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, Mauritania and Niger).
The SWEDD secretariat is therefore seeking to partner with a pool of evaluation experts in the area of Gender, Adolescents & Youth, as well as Sexual & Reproductive Health to help the regional steering committee conduct this process in order to be able to disburse the available funds to the recipient countries by the end of the second quarter of 2016.
The consultant’s main purpose is to assist SWEDD regional steering committee in the review process of country programme / proposals on Women and Girl Empowerment
