TERMS OF REFERENCE

UNRWA is a United Nations agency established by the General Assembly in 1949 and is mandated to provide assistance and protection to a population of some 5 million registered Palestine refugees. Its mission is to help Palestine refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, West Bank and the Gaza Strip to achieve their full potential in human development, pending a just solution to their plight. UNRWA’s services encompass education, health care, relief and social services, camp infrastructure and improvement, microfinance and emergency assistance. UNRWA is funded almost entirely by voluntary contributions.

Consultancy – Statistician

BACKGROUND

The Syria crisis has affected tens of thousands of Palestine refugees residing in Syria as they have been displaced and forced to migrate – once again. Large-scale displacements have occurred within Syria many having had to seek interim shelter options in UNRWA installations and sub-standard housing. Others have fled to Lebanon and Jordan – or further abroad. As UNRWA is engaged in emergency assistance in Syria, Jordan and Lebanon for this population, the interventions are accompanied with efforts to monitor situational trends and needs.

In order to ensure that the collected data is analyzed in-depth, formatted and can be interpreted to ensure its utilization by programme planners and managers and for advocacy purposes, UNRWA is seeking the support of a Statistician.

As all three fields of UNRWA operations of concern (Syria, Jordan, Lebanon) have engaged in data collection and monitoring exercises to generate information for planning, monitoring, targeting and impact assessment purposes, but there is need for harmonization of data collection tools, methodologies or analytical frameworks. In the absence of this, it becomes difficult to inter-relate information on the situation of Palestine refugees affected by the Syria crisis including an analysis of the effects of programmatic responses in the three fields.

In order to ensure that UNRWA’s efforts of data collection and analysis are standardized against quality standards and a basic analytical framework depending on information needs and anticipated use, a basic tool kit for implementation of emergency related assessments and monitoring mechanisms needs to be developed for easy implementation. Further, an inventory of existing information and data needs to be maintained for future references, including information generated by third parties. UNRWA wishes to enhance its relations with inter-agency and UN based assessment frameworks implemented regionally or in the three countries so as to benefit from any new development related to data collection, analysis or data sharing practices. It equally remains important that UNRWA maintains a comparative overview of data collection exercises and results related to the Syrian populations inside Syria as well as those residing in Lebanon and Jordan. The consultant will spend 50% of their work specifically on activities related to the Syria emergency response of the Jordan Field Office.
