Term of Reference

The End-line survey and End Project Evaluation for Integrated Child/Youth in DRR/CCA Project (ICYDCP) KH09-003

  1. Organisational context

ChildFund Cambodia is the representative office of ChildFund Australia – an independent international development organisation that works to reduce poverty for children in developing communities.

ChildFund Australia is a member of the ChildFund Alliance – a global network of 12 organisations which assists almost 23 million children and their families in over 70 countries. ChildFund Australia is a registered charity, a member of the Australian Council for International Development, and fully accredited by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade which manages the Australian Government’s overseas aid program.

ChildFund began working in Cambodia in 2007 and works in partnership to create community and systems change which enables vulnerable children and young people, in all their diversity, to assert and realise their rights. Projects are implemented in the rural districts of Svay Rieng, Kratie, Prey Veng and Battambang provinces, focused on improving living standards for excluded or marginalised communities.

With a focus on child protection and resilience, quality education, disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation, improved local governance, water and sanitation, and youth empowerment, ChildFund Cambodia is also working to strengthen the government’s policy frameworks to improve early grade reading performance through technology interventions, and build community-based child protection mechanisms.

ChildFund Cambodia implements its programs in collaboration with local civil society organisations, and in partnership with the relevant ministries and government departments.

Life with Dignity (LWD) is a local non-government organisation serving vulnerable communities in Cambodia through development work prioritising human dignity since 1979. Its program themes include sustainable livelihoods and agriculture, disaster risk reduction and climate change, WASH, nutrition and health, education and social community engagement.

2. Background

From October 2021 to June 2023 LWD in partnership ChildFund Cambodia implemented the ‘Integrated Child/Youth in Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation project (ICYDCP) in Kampong Trabaek District in Prey Veng Province. The project design was based on the results of stakeholder consultation and a Hazard Vulnerability Capacity Assessment (HVCA). These results highlighted:

  1. the negative impact of natural disasters and climate change with increased occurrence of moderate flooding, drought, and degraded soil quality in the project location,
  2. gaps in the knowledge and skills on DRR/CCA within these communities on the part of children, youth, and adults, and
  • low levels of child and youth engagement in Commune Council Disaster Management (CCDMs) and Village Disaster Management Groups (VDMGs), and minimal opportunities more broadly for children and youth to raise their voices or participate in community decision-making and a lack of information about their rights.

ChildFund Cambodia projects within its Community Voices program demonstrate that promoting child and youth participation in community decision-making strengthens their confidence, leadership, and communication skills – three key social and emotional (SEL) skills – and positively influence how community officials perceive and value the unique contributions children and youth make to their communities. These findings complement Cambodia’s 2011 National Policy on Youth Development that calls for increased youth participation, expression, and decision-making in local communities and educational settings with support from policymakers, service providers, and leaders who acknowledge youth’s capacity and respect youth’s rights. The OECD’s subsequent 2016 Youth Well-being Policy Review of Cambodia states that this policy position not only helps communities but also equips young people with much-needed future workplace soft skills.

The project worked with the following key stakeholders: National Committee for Disaster Management (NCDM) Provincial Committee for Disaster Management (PCDM); District Committees for Disaster Management (DCDMs); Commune Committees for Disaster Management (CCDM) and Village Disaster Management Group (VDMG), youth leaders/members from 20 villages in 3 target communes in Kampong Trabaek district. Moreover, children council leaders/members, school teachers, school directors and School Support Committee from 6 targeted school in 3 communes in Kampong Trabaek district, Prey Veng Province.

The ICYDCP Project Goal: was that sub-national governments and communities have disaster Risk reduction processes and systems in place that are inclusive of children and youth.

There were 3 project outcomes and 9 indicators that helped the initiative achieve its goal.

Outcome 1: Strengthening formal mechanism from province to village level to be able to address issues related to DRR/CCA

Outcome Indicators:

  • (CCDMs, VDMGs, youth groups and child council members) know how to assess and prioritise risks and develop and implement risk management plans with significant considerations to the needs of the most vulnerable groups. (70% of members; 27 mini-projects implemented; 27 DRR/CCA plans)
  • Adolescents, young people and adults are playing supportive roles in community risk reduction activities, addressing barriers and sharing ownership of results
  • Adolescent and youth participants in Youth DRR show higher level of resilience and a more positive outlook
  • CCDMs and VDMGs are more representative of youth, women, men, boys, girls, people with disabilities and other vulnerable groups and have more inclusive planning and decision-making processes
  • The sub-national government provides technical, financial and/or coordination support for the implementation of 12 school-level DRR/CCA plans (evidence of support provided; 12 school improvement plans)
  • 6: The sub-national government provides technical, financial and/or coordination support for the implementation of commune-level DRR/CCA plans (evidence of support provided; 6 commune investment plans)

Outcome 2: Children and youth capacity using SEL framework is strengthened and to be able to contribute support on DRR/CCA issues at the communities’ level.

  • 70% of Children Council and Youth Group members with increased SEL competencies
  • Youth group and child council members better understand the root causes of disasters and understand how disasters can be managed in their context (70% have increased knowledge of the root causes of disaster; 60% have increased knowledge of managing climate and/or climate risk)

Outcome 3: Children and youth increased their voices, right to participate in decision making and take active engagement on issues related to DRR/CCA.

  • 60% of Youth group and children council members lead, participate or contribute to positive change on DRR/CCA in their communities
  • Evidence of DRR/CCA policies, systems and procedures that are influenced by youth groups and child councils

3. Purpose

Project endline: Conduct a comprehensive endline study against the ICYDCP Project Results M&E plan and tracking report (see annex) that entails collecting two sets of data: a.) for endline and b.) retrospectively collecting endline data due to variation from the current logical framework versus baseline data. The consultant will conduct an endline survey on level of knowledge and skills as well as project interventions to address key barriers among children, youths, key community members and relevant stakeholders.

End-of-project evaluation: Conduct a final evaluation of the project to identify the challenges and successes (best practices) and key suggestions for ways forward based in the DAC criteria. The end-of-project evaluation (hereafter, ‘the evaluation’) will ensure accountability towards ChildFund and the beneficiaries of the project. The findings and recommendations of the evaluation will be shared with the LWD and ChildFund management teams, government stakeholders and child and youth participants to guide future project development and learning.

Case study: Produce 2-3 case studies of different target groups (i.e: CWD, youth, and Government staff) and specific findings in a comprehensive report

Key requirements are:

  • Use the main evaluation questions listed below to determine whether the project’s purpose, outcomes and related indicators have been met in accordance with the OECD DAC criteria;
  • assess the project’s performance addressing cross-cutting issues including gender equality, disability inclusion, and child and youth participation;
  • explore lessons learned and identify the strengths, weaknesses and potential gaps of the intervention;
  • Provide specific findings and recommendations to inform organisational learning and dissemination with key stakeholders. These stakeholders include:
  • National Level: National Committee for Disaster Management (NCDM)
  • Provincial and District Levels: Provincial Committee for Disaster Management (PCDM); District Committee for Disaster Management (DCDM) and District Deputy Governor in charge of disaster.
  • Commune Level: Commune Committee for Disaster Management (CCDM), Village Disaster Management Group (VDMG), Youth, School Director, Teachers, School Support Committee (School Management Committee) and Children Councils.

The evaluation methodology will be designed to answer the key evaluation questions set out in the table with the evaluation report outlining the findings of these questions. These findings need to be linked to the evaluation criteria.

OECD DAC Criteria

OECD DAC Criteria Key evaluation questions

·     coherence addresses the synergies and interlinkages between the intervention and other interventions carried out by the same institution/government,

·     coherence considers the consistency of the intervention with other actors’ interventions in the same context. This includes complementarity, harmonisation and co-ordination with others, and the extent to which the intervention is adding value while avoiding duplication of effort.

Relevance To what extent did the project address the main issues identified during the project design (and referenced in the background section above)?


How do project participants perceive the relevance of the project and how have the implemented activities improved their lives? Are there any stories of change?


Efficiency How efficient was the delivery of the project in both expenditure and implementation of activities? Are there opportunities to improve efficiency?


To what extent were output indicator targets achieved and were these targets appropriate?

How have children, youth and relevant stakeholders’ behaviours and practices changed?


How has the “Integrated Child/Youth into DRR/CCA” project strengthened sub-national duty bearers in terms of their capacity and influence to take into account disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation?


What evidence exists of positive change in knowledge, attitude and practice among relevant stakeholders in responding to DRR/CCA issues in the community?

Sustainability What is the likely sustainability of project achievements benefiting target communities and participants following project completion?


What key factors might support sustainability and replication of the project approach?


What level of ownership and independence did the commune committee for disaster management groups achieve in response to DRR/CCA issues by the end of the project and will this be sufficient for sustained work beyond the life of the project?
