FOR COSULTANCY FOR REVISION OF OFDA MATERIALS AGAINST INEE & SPHERE STANDARDS


1. PROJECT INFORMATION:

Background:
Save the children is implementing ‘Building a Culture of Resilience’ an OFDA/ USAID funded project since 2010. The project is now in the fifth year of implementation. The primary objective of the project is to strengthen the capacity of communities, local civil-society organizations, and key government authorities at the district, provincial, and national levels to respond rapidly and effectively to emergencies, so that they become more functional in disaster mitigation and in preventing the loss of life.
In addition to DRR activities, this project has also been used to respond to emergencies in disaster-risk provinces. Building on previous phases of the project, SC is utilizing lessons learned to reach even more vulnerable communities, more effectively during the fourth phase of implementation. In addition, SC is returning to existing communities to build their capacity further, refreshing their learning, and training communities to transfer the skills that they have developed to other villages which are at risk. The four main areas of intervention are: 1. Capacity building of government, civil-society groups, and communities; 2. emergency NFI stock pre-positioning and response; 3. child protection and 4. Shelter settlements

Purpose of the Assignment:
During the course of this five year Save the Children has developed a number of booklets, training materials and packages and Term of References (ToR)s for implementation of various activities under the above mentioned objectives. Additionally SC has come up with number of NFI Kits to provide to disaster affected people.
The purpose of this assignment is to review these materials to ensure they are in line with INEE and Sphere standards. And also advise if there is any new successful development in the field of DRR and Emergency Response, which is missing in our document/materials.
