NRC LEBANON: Invitation to Bid for Consultancy Services "VULNERABILITY PROFILES AND MULTI-PURPOSE CASH ASSISTANCE: HOW WFP MULTI-PURPOSE CASH BENEFICIARIES WITH DIFFERENT VULNERABILITY PROFILES SPEND INCOME AND ACCESS VULNERABILITY RELATED SERVICES"
The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is an independent humanitarian organisation helping people forced to flee. We deliver high-quality aid where needs are greatest. Today, we work in both new and protracted crises across 31 countries, where we provide camp management, food assistance, clean water, shelter, legal aid, and education. Today, a record 79.5 million people are fleeing war and persecution. Not since World War Two have more people needed our help. The Norwegian Refugee Council assisted over 9.1 million people worldwide in 2019, and with your support, we can help even more.
The Cash Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning Organizational Network (CAMEALEON) is an NGO-led consortium co-managed by the Norwegian Refugee Council, Oxfam and Solidarités International (SI), providing monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning (MEAL) support to the World Food Programme’s multi-purpose cash (MPC) programme. CAMEALEON’s mandate is to conduct independent research and analysis to generate evidence and learning in order to generate recommendations to improve decision-making, accountability to affected people, programme cost-efficiency and effectiveness of WFP’s MPC programme in Lebanon.
As part of its mandate, CAMEALEON is planning to conduct a mixed methods research study to understand how the expenditure patterns of Syrian refugee households with specific vulnerabilities differ to other households, how MPC helps them to meet their basic needs, and how receiving MPC impacts access to services. Profiles will be based on common vulnerabilities that WFP see as having higher protection related risks. These may include vulnerabilities experienced by MPC beneficiary households such as child protection concerns, disabilities, elderly households, households with acute malnutrition, female headed households with young children, and chronically ill households.
CAMEALEON is seeking a researcher (s) to design and delivery the research. The researcher (s) leading this study will work with WFP and CAMEALEON to identify which profiles to include based on consultations during the inception period. The research will explore expenditure related themes, such as differences in spending patterns and expenses per vulnerability profile as well as access (or lack of) to services related to their vulnerability. Additionally, the research will look at how receiving MPC is used to mitigate vulnerability related protection concerns, such as the need for child labour or ability to pay hospital related debt and receive treatment for illnesses.
