Project Description

A Field Monitoring and Evaluation Officer with advanced-level French language proficiency, analytical and report writing skills, and experience in M&E; systems and data analysis is needed to work with the Kankan field office of the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) in Guinea. A Comprehensive Food and Nutrition Security and Vulnerability Analysis (CFSVA+N), conducted by WFP and Guinea’s National Agency of Agriculture and Food Security Statistics in 2018, indicated that 21.8 percent of households are food insecure, with 2.4 percent severely food insecure. The support WFP is giving to education aims to improve the attendance rates of elementary pupils through the daily provision of hot school meals to 131,895 primary school students throughout the school year in targeted prefectures, and WFP also supports communities to produce locally grown food that can be used for school feeding programs. A Peace Corps Response Volunteer (PCRV) has been requested to perform monitoring activities, produce technical work and reports, and provide guidance to other staff and counterparts.

The PCRVs will work with the staff of the WFP Sub-Office to undertake monitoring actions or deliver straightforward evaluations of operations, programs, or processes to WFP monitoring and/or evaluation quality standards; demonstrate, explain, and communicate the impact of WFP activities in beneficiary communities to teammates and other key stakeholders; and collect and summarized program data for all program assistance activities. The work will include traveling to the field regularly to directly oversee program implementation. The PCRV may also identify apparent problems in the program and find appropriate solutions in accordance with WFP policies and implement potential improvements to the Sub-Office’s work in conjunction with the WFP supervisor. The overall goal of the assignment is for the PCRVs to build the capacity of the WFP Sub-Office to ensure projects are well implemented and monitored.
