Please note that this is a short version of the Terms of Reference (ToR) for this assignment. The full version incl. application procedure can be found here.
Caritas Switzerland is an independent Swiss NGO, engaged in Switzerland and in more than 20 countries worldwide, including Kosovo. Our mission is to prevent, combat and eradicate poverty in a sustainable manner. To achieve this goal, Caritas employs a policy of equity: we support inclusive communities with opportunities for everyone regardless of their ethnic background, group affiliation or gender. Caritas Switzerland has been working in Kosovo since 1999, focusing on social inclusion, rural development and rehabilitation. Based on the Strategy 2021-2025, our central themes are Income, Climate Change and Migration. Caritas Switzerland in Kosovo is implementing a highly regarded agricultural project which aims at contributing to socio-economic development of the country by supporting farmers and the sector in income generation and new employment opportunities. In particular, the SIRED project contributes to more sustainable and inclusive market systems by increasing participations of producers and market actors and enhancing their income and productivity, thus contributing to poverty reduction for rural populations, particularly women and marginalized groups.
The main purpose of this Evaluation is to provide an independent assessment of the project implementation and whether it has delivered the intended outputs and achieved its expected outcomes considering relevance, coherence, and effectiveness, taking into consideration cross-cutting issues such as gender equality, social inclusion, and environment. The evaluation will analyse the whole scope of the project and its results framework, which comprises all elements of the intervention logic.
