WaterAid’s Global Strategy aims to contribute significantly to the achievement of universal access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) by 2030, aligned with Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6, with a particular focus on reaching the poorest and most marginalised people. WaterAid’s Global Strategy gives high priority to influencing to achieve this desired change. Our ability to influence different actors, like governments, inter-governmental systems, and UN agencies is becoming increasingly important to ensure that the world meets the ambitious SDG 6 as expressed in our approach "doing some, influencing the rest".

Methodology and Outputs

The review will be conducted through desk-based research and WaterAid country visits and other methods as appropriate. The review will include 3-4 country visits. It is expected that (a) Country Programmes involved in the review will receive concrete, detailed and actionable recommendations to strengthening their influencing work, considering their specific context, and (b) WaterAid International will receive a compilation of the case studies accompanied with any concluding thoughts and lessons learned from across the 3-4 case studies.

Call for consultants

WaterAid is seeking a consultant and/or consultants to conduct this thematic review. Full details can be found in the attached ToR. Consultants should have experience in conducting thematic review at the global level with substantial understanding of influencing and governance. French language skills are desirable, but not essential.

Management and Budget

WaterAid International have commissioned the Accountability and Effectiveness Team of WaterAid UK to manage the process, including working with the consultants to facilitate access to information, contacts and country visits. The budget for this evaluation is approximately £29,000 excluding taxes and VAT. This does not include reimbursable expenses, which shall be covered separately. WaterAid expects the work to require the equivalent of 70 days’ work during the period outlined above, including a minimum of three weeks visiting Country Programmes. Value for money will be a consideration for selection.
