Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEAL) Consultant
1.BACKGROUND INFORMATION AND RATIONALE
EuroMed Feminist Initiative (EFI) is a policy platform that provides expertise in the field of gender equality as inseparable from democracy building and citizenship, and advocates for political solutions to all conflicts, and for the right of people to self-determination. EFI’s headquarter is in Paris and the regional MENA office is in Amman, Jordan with country offices in Amman and Beirut.
On March 1st, 2023, EFI in partnership with four consortium members – Women Empowerment Organization (WEO), Association Najdeh, Arab Women Organization (AWO), and the Palestinian Working Women Society for Development (PWWSD) - started implementing a 36-month programme titled ‘’Strengthening Feminist CSOs working in the Implementation of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda (WPSA)’’, funded by the Support Fund for Feminist Organizations of the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) and the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs).
The programme will be implemented in Iraq (targeting seven governorates including Erbil, Duhok, Baghdad, Anbar, Salahaddin, Neinawa, and Diyala), Jordan (targeting three governorates Mafraq, Irbid and Zarqa), Lebanon (targeting seven governorates including Akkar, Baalbek-Hermel, Beirut, Beqaa (Zahlé), Mount Lebanon, North and South) and Palestine (targeting West Bank and Gaza Strip). The overall objective is to contribute to the effective implementation of the WPSA in these four countries.
Through a rights-based approach, it will address the needs of women and girls by empowering and strengthening the capacities of feminist Civil Society Organizations CSOs and women-led Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) in leading initiatives that support the WPSA and add impact to the implementation of existing NAPs for UNSCR 1325. Such locally-led initiatives will contribute to preventing Violence against Women and Girls (VAWG) and protecting women and girls from violence on the one hand and advancing women’s participation in the prevention, management and resolution of conflicts from local to national and regional/international levels on the other.
1.2 Rationale of the Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEAL) Consultancy

For this, the MEAL Consultant will work in coordination with the EFI’s management team in line with existing Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning related policies, guidance and tools used by EFI, and following the rules and regulations of the AFD.
