Consultancy - Real Time Review of the Emergency Nutritional Support Intervention

PURPOSE/SCOPE OF ASSIGNMENT: Goal and Objective:  Under the supervision of the Social Policy Manager, the contractor will lead the implementation of a comprehensive, light-footed assessment of the emergency nutritional support that has been implemented together with the LWC in Trinidad and Tobago. The RTR will therefore have a dual function—an accountability function and a learning function.   The objectives of this Real Time Review include: Determination of the efficacy, to date, of the initiative in meeting its objectives - as well as other standard criteria for assessment of humanitarian interventions - and intended outcomes. Identification of the strengths and weaknesses of the initiative. Engagement with beneficiaries to retrieve key insights. The feedback provided is expected to offer a deeper understanding of the community dynamics, barriers and grievances of beneficiaries as it relates to the initiative. Generation of evidence, key lessons and conclusions to produce recommendations concerning the on-going and future cash-based transfer interventions as part of the humanitarian migrant response. It is hoped these will improve the redesign of the intervention and its scalability to respond to the increasing needs of the PoC. Guided by the goals and objectives of the RTR, the efficacy of the initiative will be assessed using humanitarian principles as the gauge. Further, it will be guided by the following commonly used criteria: relevance/appropriateness, effectiveness, efficiency, coordination, as well as Accountability to Affected Populations (AAP).
