Evaluation of Humanitarian needs based on the current CPiE intervention
Sylvain Fournier, Country Representative
October - November 2016
21 days of consultancy
The security situation in Afghanistan is volatile and has deteriorated in the
last months. The consultant is expected to travel to the project locations
(Nangarhar) if security allows. Tdh’s delegation is well prepared and
informed but certain movement restrictions, or hibernation, could have an
impact the consultancy. A detailed security update will be provided to the
successful candidate.
To ensure the safety and security of the staff and operations, all visitors must
strictly follow Tdh security rules and guidelines. So far, Tdh has not been
affected by security incidents and security is monitored closely, especially
before any field visit.

Logistic of the mission


All Tdh staff, consultants, and visitors are requested to respect
security rules and to take into consideration all given instructions. A
security briefing will be provided by the Country Representative
together with the Security Officer.

Transportation and accommodation shall be managed by Terre des
hommes according to needs.

Tdh has been working in Afghanistan since 1995 and carries out projects related to health, child
protection and rural development. In 2015, more than 87 000 people benefited from Tdh activities,
funded among others by Tdh Foundation, Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, the
European Commission, Caritas Germany and Central Humanitarian Fund (CHF) with a team of 5
expatriates and almost 130 local staff. Tdh is currently engaged in three major programs in Kabul,
Takhar and Nangarhar provinces: Prevention of Violence against Children, Training and Mobilisation of
Juvenile Justice stakeholders, Mother and Child Health, Community based child protection and mine
awareness, Livelihood Improvement III and Labor Based Road Construction (LBRC).
Afghanistan has been deeply affected by internal conflicts since 40 years – inducing a large number of
IDPs especially since 2015. In addition, current trends of returnees from Pakistan are worrying – as the
influx is putting more pressure on already overstrained resources. (I)NGOs have difficulties to access
some areas, for assessment and for any kind of prevention or assistance. With winter season and influx
of additional thousands returnees, needs for protection and assistance will only grow.

Tdh has currently 2 on-going interventions which are covering 11 districts in Nangarhar and Kunar
provinces. These 2 humanitarian interventions shown good results, successes and are innovative.
Recently, Tdh participated in a MIRA (Multi Interagency Rapid Assessment in 6 districts of Nangarhar as
well as will participate in other inter-agency assessment more orientated in Protection in Nangarhar and
Tdh reinforced its visibility in humanitarian sector in Afghanistan. The link with ECHO is done and this
consultancy should help to prepare the submission of proposal based on needs assessment, identify
gaps and proposed additional activities to include in the future humanitarian intervention.
The current emergency projects implemented in Nangarhar will be used as basis. The current project
has shown high acceptance and good results, the data collected could be very useful and the innovative
approach fit with the Afghan context and the Migration main thematic area defined in Tdh strategy.
The consultancy objective will be to evaluate the strengths, the weaknesses and the potential new
activities that could be integrated. Recently, OCHA and UNHCR launched a lot of evaluation (mainly
HEAT made by OCHA, as well as inter-agency by UNHCR) in Nangarhar province. Tdh team are part of
the evaluator. The results could be shared with the consultant. The methodology and the tools could be
used in the uncovered locations where Tdh is working.
The second objective of the consultancy will be to evaluate the potentiality to fully or partially duplicate
the current Nangarhar intervention, in Kabul province. At the moment, some returnees are settling up in
Kabul province without precise information or assessment launched. The consultant will explore and
define the feasibility of starting an intervention (based on Nangarhar model) in Kabul, to define priority
areas and potential activities to be implemented. A clear link between CPiE and longer term response
linked with priority thematic (vision 2030) of Migration should be kept in mind by the consultant. Tdh
delegation have a strong networking, are monitoring closely the situation, are collecting all the
information and report on the situation and will share with the consultant.
