Oxfam is a global movement of people who won’t live with the injustice of poverty. Together we save and rebuild lives. We help people build better lives for themselves. We speak out on the big issues that keep people poor, like inequality, discrimination against women and climate change, and we won’t stop until every person on the planet can live without poverty. In Zimbabwe, Oxfam works to reduce poverty, inequality and suffering amongst the poor and marginalised.
Background of the programme
Oxfam in Zimbabwe in partnership with Southern Alliance for Indigenous Resources (SAFIRE), Swedish Meteorological Hydrological Institute (SMHI), University of Zimbabwe (UZ) and the Meteorological Services Department (MSD) are implementing the Climate Adaptation for Rural Livelihoods (CARL) project in Buhera, Bulilima and Gutu districts. The CARL project is funded by Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) and targets 6,000 households (25,200 women, men, youth and children) from 16 wards in Buhera (6 wards), Gutu (5 wards) and Bulilima (5 wards). The CARL project was developed from lessons learned from its predecessor Oxfam-UNDP/GEF supported project called “Scaling up Adaptation in Zimbabwe project (SCCA)”. The project’s Theory of Change is premised on the belief that the capacity of rural households to absorb, adapt or transform in the face of increasing climate risk can be improved if there are changes in their access to a combination of livelihood assets at household (micro), watershed (meso) and national (macro) levels.
The main goal of the CARL project is to improve climate resilience of agricultural production and rural livelihoods in Buhera, Gutu and Bulilima districts through concrete on-the ground vulnerability reducing and adaptive capacity building investments, knowledge support and technical capacity building of supporting institutions. Achievement of the goal is through the attainment of interrelated outcomes that are (i). Targeted vulnerable communities increase adoption of climate resilient livelihoods and agricultural production systems; (ii). Rural women and youth in targeted vulnerable districts increase their income and economic power in sustainable agriculture value chains, (iii). Support institutions have strengthened technical capacities to address mitigation and adaptation concerns of rural livelihoods. (iv). Monitoring, Evaluation, Learning and Adaptive Feedback. Oxfam Zimbabwe seeks to conduct an end of project evaluation for the CARL project for which a consultant(s) is sought and below is the evaluation criteria and scope.
