Approximate duration of assignment: The assignment will entail a one week mission. UNESCO would not expect the contactor to travel if this involves any risk to his/her health in the context of the current pandemic and that the evaluation methodology should be adapted accordingly. Otherwise, meetings and interviews will be conducted remotely via technical devices - and two additional weeks for data analysis and reporting.
The position paper will describe and analyze how evaluation can shape the political discourse and debate and influence policy- and decision-making. It is envisioned that the paper will support EvalPartners and the wider evaluation community in positioning itself and its efforts to promote an evaluation agenda that encourages country actors to use quality evidence to inform political discussions, leading to policies and decisions, going forward in the post-truth era. - A writing sample of a paper or report most similar to that proposed for this assignment. Applications/ proposals should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org and Lynn@ioce.netno later than June 02, 2020.
