Background of the Evaluation

In December 23, 2014 the Cluster system was officially activated by the Emergency Relief Coordinator to enhance coordination among members of the humanitarian community. UNHCR was appointed as the lead agency for the Emergency Shelter and NFIs cluster.

In January and February 2015 a third wave of mass displacement occurred from areas under shelling (Debaltsevo crisis). As of 1st June 2015 there are 1.3 million persons registered as displaced by the Ministry of Social Policy, with fluctuating population movements including secondary displacement, commuting across the contact line, and returns.

The Emergency Shelter and Non Food Items Cluster is partnered with the Ministry of Regional Development & Ministry of Social Policy and led by UNHCR with various NGO partners coordinating to provide an appropriate response to the crises.

National coordination is conducted in Kiev with sub-national coordination occurring in various areas.

Evaluation Scope

The evaluation is to cover the period from the time of cluster activation to the present day covering the different coordination deployments undertaken and the geographic areas of both coordination and shelter activities.

Evaluation Methodology

The methodology will be developed based on the Shelter Cluster Evaluation Guidelines and should include;

a. Desk Review

  • Review of available documented materials relating to the start-up, planning, implementation, and impact of the Emergency Shelter and NFI Cluster. All relevant documentation is available at https://www.sheltercluster.org/response/ukraine

b. Data Collection and Stakeholders Analysis

  • Interviews with Shelter Cluster member agencies (NGOs and INGOs)
  • Interviews with other UN agencies participating in Shelter Cluster.
  • Interviews with regional shelter cluster lead agencies and co-chairs.
  • Interviews with other cluster lead like Protection, WASH, CCCM clusters and OCHA to analyse the inter-cluster coordination mechanism.
  • Interviews with key NGO/INGO staff that have had a key role (SAG, TWIG, sub-national coordination) in the shelter cluster coordination.

c. Draft report to be shared with the UNHCR Country Representative, the Coordinator, the Ukraine SAG and the SSS in Geneva

d. The final report and management response plan will be publicly available.

UNHCR SSS retains intellectual property of all quantitative and qualitative data produced in the execution of the evaluation.

Key Activities and Deliverables

The evaluation will be led by the external evaluators under the management of an internally appointed evaluation manager. The external evaluator will have a thorough understanding of Humanitarian Reform and the Transformative Agenda, of the IASC and UNHCR guidance related to the Shelter Cluster, and of the context in Ukraine, preferably with previous experience in the country but not directly linked to the current ESNFI cluster operations in Ukraine, or any other conflict of interest that would interfere with the independence of the evaluation.
