ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

Internews is seeking a short-term consultant to compile an evaluation report on the Humanitarian Information Dashboard. The Humanitarian Information Dashboard (HID) and data collection and analysis processes support Internews’ belief that community level information is essential to effective humanitarian relief. The platform aggregates data collected from affected communities and acts as a bespoke platform for visualizing data to give humanitarian responders localized insights into community information needs and trends. The HID has gone through several development iterations over the past 5 years, and the Humanitarian team are commissioning an external evaluation of the HID platform and associated methodologies, to inform future strategy and investment. This is a remote-first, short-term consultancy. We anticipate that the scope will require approximately 10 working days to complete.

LOGISTICS

This is a remote-based, part-time, short-term consultancy. All remote candidates will be considered; however, you must have work authorization in your location that does not require sponsorship from Internews.

SCOPE OF WORK

To conduct this assessment, the short-term consultant will consult with relevant stakeholders who use / have used and manage / have managed the HID, and compile findings into an evaluation report.
