Whom is this opportunity for?
Each successful applicant will meet all four criteria below:
- Be an NGO, government, donor, or private sector firm.
- Have a new or existing intervention, which they are planning to roll-out or scale-up; that could help strengthen women’s land tenure security in rural areas in Sub-Saharan Africa; and for which the organization has already secured any necessary funding.
- Be interested in gaining insights into how and why their intervention is working through a scientifically sound, quantitative impact evaluation.
- Be interested in strengthening their intervention’s design towards more effectively serving women.
About this opportunity
During 2019, GIL plans to launch a new set of impact evaluations on women’s land tenure security in rural areas. GIL has already secured funding to cover GIL staff time and travel, data collection, and data analysis costs associated with three new impact evaluations. This request for expressions of interest (EOIs) is for organizations (“project teams”) who would like to work with the Gender Innovation Lab (GIL) on impact evaluations of their interventions.
The selected project teams will be matched with highly-skilled and experienced GIL and external researchers who will, on a pro bono basis:
- Work with you to identify the questions your project team would like to answer through impact evaluation; work with you to develop a strong and viable impact evaluation design for your program; and lead an impact evaluation of your project (including design, data collection, and analysis);
- Provide training for your organization/team on impact evaluations; and
- Work with you to strengthen your project’s design towards more effectively serving women.
For these impact evaluations, GIL is also prepared to support the costs associated with GIL staff time and travel, data collection, and data analysis.
For more information on the EOI selection criteria, application steps, and timeline, please see the Call for Expressions of Interest available here.
About the Africa Gender Innovation Lab
The GIL conducts impact evaluations of development interventions in Sub-Saharan Africa to generate evidence on what works and what doesn’t work for closing gender gaps in economic sectors. These evaluations cover projects implemented by the World Bank, governments, aid agencies, private sector firms and nonprofit organizations. With the results of these evaluations, the GIL supports the design of innovative and scalable interventions to address gender inequality across Africa.
