CAMRIS clients include U.S. government agencies and multilateral and private organizations. Our core practice areas include public health, agriculture, and food security, economic development, education, environment, humanitarian assistance, democracy and governance, monitoring, evaluation and learning, and medical research. In support of the CAMRIS-implemented, USAID/Nepal Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) Activity, we seek a Lead Researcher Consultant to carry out a systematic review of the existing evidence collected from USAID/Nepal related to resilience. The main deliverables for this work will include: a) a report synthesizing the findings, identifying common themes and/or evidence across the various sources, and identifying gaps in evidence; b) a two-page summary, and c) a presentation of the findings and key recommendations to discuss the implications of resilience in Nepal, per USAID’s definition. The overall purpose for this learning is to document the iterative learning from the various resilience research, data, and evaluations; and apply those findings to USAID strategic planning and develop tools and compelling evidence for integrating resilience across USAID programming.
The guiding questions for the synthesis include:
1. What are the most effective intervention strategies [contributors] to increase resilience capacities or reduce vulnerability among households, communities, institutions and systems in Nepal? Similarly, what are the most important contributors to the well-being outcomes of interest in Nepal?
2. To what extent does each of these capacities contribute to resilience in Nepal? How similar is this across all groups in Nepal (specifically, across caste/ethnicity, sex, geography and age groups)?
• What are the unique opportunities for strengthening these capacities and how might they be capitalized on?• What constraints exist to building these capacities?
3. What are the primary shocks and stresses Nepal experiences, and how do households, communities, institutions and systems respond to each of these shocks and stresses differently? What are the impacts of these shocks and stresses on building resilience in Nepal?
