National Consultant: Mid-Term Review (MTR) of the Zambia-UN Sustainable Development Partnership Framework (2016-2021)

1. INTRODUCTION

On 19 November 2015, the UN and the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ) jointly signed the Zambia-United Nations Sustainable Development Partnership Framework 2016-2021 (“the Partnership Framework”). The Country Analysis (CA) for Zambia, jointly produced by the GRZ and the United Nations Country Team (UNCT), provided the analytical base for the Partnership Framework, which replaced the previous UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) when it expired at the end of 2015 and sought to incorporate the concepts of the new Sustainable Development Agenda 2030 and the SDGs. Among other things, the CA sought to ensure alignment of UN efforts with national development priorities and internationally agreed goals, in particular the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Partnership Framework, therefore, formalizes the UN collaboration with the Government and governs the work of the UN towards sustainable development from 2016 to 2021. It fully reflects the high ambition of the Sustainable Development Agenda 2030, and is premised on an integrated multi-sectoral and partnership approach to development covering stakeholders such as the public sector and the private sector, the UN, the international financial institutions, bilateral partners, civil society, academia and communities.

The Partnership frameworks aims to achieve eight outcomes, under three broad pillars namely: Inclusive Social Development; Environmentally Sustainable and Inclusive Economic Development and Governance and Participation. These are aligned to Zambia’s Vision 2030.

Under the framework, UN agencies operating in Zambia are expected to bring their collective technical expertise and other resources together to provide support within successive strategic Joint Annual Work Plans. With an estimated budget of USD 800 million, the Partnership Framework is being implemented through multi-sectoral Result Groups , each chaired by a UN Head of Agency.

While the Partnership Framework represents an agreed partnership between GRZ and the UN in Zambia, GRZ, as part of its national development planning process and ensuring progress towards the Vision 2030, has formulated the 7th National Development Plan (7NDP), which was launched in June 2017. Developed under the theme, “Accelerating Progress Towards the Vision 2030 without leaving anyone Behind”, the 7NDP represents a shift from a sectoral and silo-approach to an integrated and multi-sectoral approach, in line with the demands of the SDGs agenda. GRZ has mainstreamed the SDGs in the 7NDP. The UN provided technical and financial support to develop the 7NDP and in ensuring that it is aligned to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and other global commitments. The 7NDP represents a key development policy document to guide Zambia’s resource mobilization efforts as well as spending between 2017 and 2021.

To support the implementation of the 7NDP, new coordination arrangements have been established by GRZ. These include the National Development Coordinating Committee (NDCC), Cluster Advisory Groups (CAGs), Technical Working Groups (TWGs), Provincial Development Coordinating Committees (PDCCs), and District Development Coordinating Committees (DDCCs), as well as Ward level development committees.

Given the complexity of the development agenda as outlined in the 7NDP and the SDGs, and the multiplicity of the structures set up to coordinate and support implementation, it is worth noting that in addition to making financing available, success in delivering transformational development will depend on effectiveness and efficiency of the coordination and delivery mechanisms. Therefore, there is a need to continuously iterate the coordination and delivery mechanisms between the Partnership Framework and the 7NDP to ensure they remain relevant and operate efficiently and effectively.

2. PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES OF THE MTR

Purpose

The Government of Republic of Zambia and the UN Country Team propose to undertake a Mid–Term Review (MTR) of the Partnership Framework in 2018 as indicated in the Partnership Framework M&E plan. The purpose of the Review is to serve as the basis for improving coordination and delivery of the Partnership Framework as aligned to the 7NDP in meeting Zambia’s development agenda.

The key objectives of the MTR are to;

  • Assess the effectiveness and efficiency of the Partnership Framework’s coordination and management structures;
  • Ascertain the Partnership Framework’s effectiveness and progress made towards outcomes, as well as identify and articulate factors explaining the progress;
  • Assess the relevance and strategic alignment of the Partnership Framework and its coordination structures to the 7NDP; and
  •  Document best practices, lessons learnt and make recommendations with respect to the above objectives.

Based on the objectives above, two types of evaluation approaches are expected to be employed, namely: Process evaluation and Outcome evaluation.

On the one hand, process evaluation will focus on assessing how and in what ways the Partnership Framework is working, and for whom. It will provide opportunities for feedback and reflection amongst stakeholders, including UN agencies and government in order to inform the ongoing implementation for iterative design of the Framework. The process evaluation approach will also assess whether the use of resources is proving to be effective and efficient, and whether the systems and capacities to support implementation of the Partnership Framework are appropriate for achieving intended results. The approach will also help answer whether the results achieved in terms of building partnerships/alliances/networks/coalitions are sustainable, and the extent to which the Partnership Framework is contributing towards transformative development in Zambia.

On the other hand, outcome evaluation will assess how and in what ways the Partnership Framework is contributing to immediate changes in policies, practices, ideas and attitudes, and if there have been any negative or unexpected effects created by the Partnership Framework. The approach should also help in identifying the mechanisms that have contributed to or worked against programming effectiveness and successful change.

3. QUESTIONS TO BE ANSWERED BY THE MID-TERM REVIEW

Based on the above objectives, below are the four key evaluation questions and suggested sub-questions to be answered by the review:

3.1 How effective are the coordination and management arrangements of the Partnership Framework?

  1. Are the management and governance arrangements of the Partnership Framework fit for purpose? Is there a clear understanding of roles and responsibilities of the structures by all parties involved?
  2. Is there adequate administrative, technical and other support within the UN in Zambia (resident and non-resident UN agencies), regional offices and headquarters to implement the Partnership Framework? Are the available technical and financial resources adequate to deliver the planned development outcomes? If not, what other kind of resources may be required?
  3. How effectively have the UN and stakeholders undertaken planning and monitored performance and results? Is a monitoring and evaluation system in place and how effective is it? Is relevant information systematically collected and collated? Is the data disaggregated by, for example, gender or by other relevant criteria , bearing in mind the UNDG principles for integrated programming ?
  4. To what extent are the UNDG programming principles adhered to in the implementation of the Partnership Framework? How could adherence to the principles be strengthened?
  5. To what extent has the Partnership Framework furthered gender mainstreaming in programming by the UN and the Government of the Republic of Zambia?

  2. What have been the main contributing and challenging factors in making progress towards the development outcomes envisioned in the Partnership Framework?
  3. Is the Partnership Framework progressively contributing to creating or strengthening an enabling environment (implementation arrangements, systems, policies, people’s attitudes, etc.) for successfully realising the envisioned development outcomes? Is the Partnership approach strengthening rights-holders’ participation and duty-bearer’s accountability? Is it contributing to increased knowledge and demand of human rights among the most vulnerable populations and reinforcing capacities of duty bearers to respect, protect and guarantee these rights?
  4. What, if any, are the identified or perceived unintended outcomes of the Partnership Framework? What external socio-economic and political factors explain the outcomes?

• Efficiency:

  1. How efficiently have UN agencies allocated and deployed resources (human resources, time, expertise, funds etc.) for the implementation of the Partnership Framework?

  2. In what ways is the partnership approach transforming the way the UN and the Zambian government work?
  3. To what extent are the transformational aspects of the partnership approach visible within the UN and the Zambian government? What steps need to be taken to enhance the sustainability of positive/transformational change resulting from the implementation of the Partnership Framework?

a synthesis and analysis of data from regular programme monitoring reports. Interviews with beneficiaries and local partners using participatory approaches will be strongly encouraged.

To effectively use the limited time, consultants may apply quota sampling and use other time and financial resource efficient data collection methodologies. The participation of specific interest groups such as women and women organizations, youth and youth organisations, among others, should also be guaranteed during the field research. The consultants will be required to work with the MTR Reference Group in identifying and drawing up a list of respondents.

5. PROCESS OF THE MTR

The Partnership Framework MTR will be an external, participatory, and iterative learning exercise. It will take place from June – September 2018 and will build on the previous Partnership Framework Annual Reviews. The total duration of the assignment is 60 working days.

The MTR will be jointly commissioned and managed by the UNCT (Heads of UN Agencies) and the Government of Zambia. The review will engage wide range of stakeholders, including the UN, government, civil society and cooperating partners.
