I.General Information

Type of contract: Short-term consultancy contract
Duration of the assignment: 8 weeks
Expected places of travel: Gantiwarno Subdistrict, Central Java
Aceh Besar Subdistrict, NAD
Reports to: WR Country


World Relief reentered Indonesia in 2005, right after the Indian
Ocean tsunami of December 24, 2004. It launched disaster response
projects, which ranged from relief to reconstruction and
rehabilitation. A number of these projects have been completed and
have undergone post project evaluations. The latest, Bereneut and
Leungah Disaster Recovery (BLDR) Project that covers 5 villages in
the subdistrict of Selimeum, has ended its activities in July 2008,
and is slated for administrative closure in August 2008. The
project was implemented with a Disaster Risk Reduction framework, in
5 components: 1) Sustainable Fishing Livelihood Recovery; 2) Farm-to-
market road construction/opening; 3) Bereneut water distribution
facility; 4) Community Reforestation; and 5) Mainstreaming disaster
mitigation and preparedness into the Subdistrict local government.

While implementing its tsunami recovery projects in Aceh and Nias,
the Java Earthquake of 2006 occurred, and World Relief responded to
it with relief and rehabilitation projects as well, albeit with much
less funding than the tsunami projects. There are several components
to this reponse, as follows: 1) Emergency Relief – food, tents and
tarpaulins, iterative needs assessments; 2) Transitional Housing,
which implemented the “core shelter” strategy in Muruh Village and
relied heavily on community labor through the local tradition
of “gotong royong”; 3) Water and Sanitation – 500 family latrines in
Gantiwarno subdistrict’s communities. The project’s major
activities had been completed in January 2008, and administrative
closure was done in March 2008.

A project-end evaluation of the two projects is required. The
projects’ objectives, outputs, specific activities, inputs and
indicators are outlined in detail in the logical frameworks
(logframe) and proposals. These two documents will be the key
reference/working documents during the evaluation.

III.Objectives and Scope of Work

and quality of World Relief’s response to the Aceh tsunami, through
the BLDR Project, and to the Java Earthquake disaster of 2006,

-Objectively assess accomplishment against the stated
objectives and target, identifying good practices as well as the
main constraints and barriers to achieving desired results;
-Evaluate the project’s performance against the objectives

for future programs; (also taking into consideration the evaluations
of other WR tsunami projects in Aceh and Nias).
-Use established verifiable indicators (based on the project
logframe) to assess project impacts and benefits to beneficiaries;
-Assess the quality and effectiveness of engagement by World
Relief with its local partners and provide recommendations that can
be used in the development of its partner capacity building
strategies in Indonesia.

recommendations for WR Indonesia projects in the future. (taking
