Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning Unit for Syria-Iraq Peace and Stabilisation Programme 2022-2025

The objective of the assignment is to support the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) to monitor and report on the performance, progress, obstacles and setbacks, risks, results and achievements of the Syria-Iraq Peace and Stabilisation Programme (SI-PSP). The assignment will also collect and present lessons being learned and propose possible changes, adaptations and revisions to the programme. The services provided will help the MFA to strengthen the programme’s efficiency and effectiveness, facilitate learning and ensure informed decision-making by the MFA and its partners.

The SI-PSP focuses on the immediate and medium-term stabilisation in Syria and Iraq and is coordinated and implemented within the Peace and Stabilisation Fund (PSF) guidelines. The current phase of the programme was launched in January 2022 and runs for four years. It consists of a package of 14 engagements with multilateral agencies, non-governmental organisations, and delegated agreements, although we understand that additional engagements may be added in due course. The programme supports short-term improvements in stability as well as encouraging longer-term transition, peace building and reconciliation efforts in the two countries.

In this assignment, Tana will provide Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEAL) services related to (1) the overall SI-PSP 2022-2025 and all its ODA engagements; (2) additional engagements if approved under the unallocated funds; and (3) ODA engagements still under implementation from SI-PSP 2019-2021.
