Evaluation Consultant for British Red Cross - Lebanon

British Red Cross is seeking a consultant to complete a Mid Term Review (MTR) of the Cash and Resilience for Syrian Refugees and Resident Communities in Lebanon program and identify key lessons and recommendations to improve ongoing work. The results of the MTR are expected to assess the program to date and inform management decision-making for ongoing and future work in Lebanon. The MTR will provide an evidence-based analysis that can be used to ensure that the program has been implemented in line with internal Movement accountability requirements (both organizational and accountability to affected persons), and that the current activities are having the desired impact for the targeted communities. The Cash and Resilience for Syrian Refugees and Resident Communities in Lebanon program supports vulnerable Syrian and Lebanese communities in Lebanon with cash support and technical assistance to develop microeconomic initiatives. The program is implemented by both the Lebanese Red Cross (LRC) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
