Consultancy: Meta-evaluation of disaster preparedness evaluations

American Red Cross
Global Disaster Preparedness Center (GDPC)

The International Service Department of the American Red Cross and the Global Disaster Preparedness Center (GDPC) call for consultancy services for: "Meta-evaluation of American Red Cross disaster preparedness evaluations". The Meta-evaluation will map out lessons from past American Red Cross evaluations, by first assessing the quality and reliability of the findings, to then identify common themes and learnings related to the process towards “disaster ready communities.”

Objectives:

The objectives of the meta-evaluation of American Red Cross preparedness evaluations are:

  • To document the overall trends across American Red Cross preparedness evaluations and document any outliers (positive or negative) and the factors leading to unexpected outcomes.
  • To identify the key activities that have proven most effective in achieving the desired community-level change in American Red Cross activities.
  • To map the exit criteria and indicators that were used across past American Red Cross evaluations.
  • Capture lessons for what has worked well and what should be done differently in different contexts (i.e rural, semi-urban, urban; different hazard contexts; different socio-economic contexts; etc.).
  • To identify knowledge gaps in existing documentation.

Deliverables: 

  1. Inception report.
  2. Community Disaster Preparedness quality evaluation score card ranking of past American Red Cross evaluations.
  3. Community Disaster Preparedness meta evaluation report.

Purpose:

Notice that this consultancy is related to another consultancy.
