Job Description/Requirements

Department: Uganda Learning Activity

Location: Kampala, Kampala

QED is a global consulting firm with more than 20 years of experience providing data-driven and insightful solutions in close to 100 countries. We are passionate about transforming lives through knowledge-based solutions. Leveraging deep expertise in monitoring, evaluation, global health, and learning, we help our clients collect, analyze, visualize, and ultimately use data in more effective ways. Our work maximizes results through the use of cutting-edge technologies and innovation, organizational development, and evidence-based decision-making.

The purpose of the USAID Learning Activity (ULA) is to further strengthen USAID/Uganda's performance and improve the performance of its implementing partners, with a focus on collaborating, learning, and adapting, in order to enhance the impact and sustainability of USAID-supported contributions to Uganda’s development. The ULA will achieve this through three objectives:

  • Collaboration: Strengthened collaboration, both internally and with external stakeholders, enables USAID to better leverage expertise, learning and resources; and deepens local ownership.
  • Learning: Systematic learning, through applied research, monitoring and evaluation, informs and improves the relevance, quality and cost- effectiveness of programs and operations 
  • Performing: Adaptive management of program implementation and meta-level interventions to improve the quality of USAID program outcomes.

In November 2021, USAID/Uganda commissioned a country-level Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) analysis/assessment as a means of providing a framework for the integration of gender equality and female empowerment in its new Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS), and subsequently in USAID/Uganda programs. The GESI analysis was intended to respond to USAID’s gender requirements and comply with Automated Directives System (ADS) and ADS 205.3.3, which requires that Strategic Plans reflect attention to gender concerns. 

The GESI analysis provided extensive findings and recommendations on USAID/Uganda’s technical offices priority sectors, that is, Office of Health and HIV (OHH); Education, Youth and Early Childhood Development (EYCD); Democracy, Rights and Governance (DRG); Economic Growth (EG); and Humanitarian Assistance and Transitions Office (HATO) as a framework for practical integration of gender equality and female empowerment in programs. Further, information was provided along the five domains of laws, policies, regulations, and institutional practices that influence the context in which men and women act and make decisions, as well as cultural norms and beliefs; gender roles, responsibilities, and time use; access to and control over assets and resources; and patterns of power and decision making.

Although the analysis identified the macro and/or sectoral-level societal gender inequalities or obstacles to female empowerment, it drew largely on national-level data, with partial sector-specific analysis on some sub themes relevant for USAID programming. This has therefore limited the basis on which gender equality and female empowerment can be integrated into USAID in the five sectors mentioned above.

The specific objectives of the assignment are 

  1. Review the 2021 CDCS gender analysis report to extract key sectoral information: findings, practical recommendations, and or other relevant information
  2. Gather information from various sources to update the missing information along the sub-sector themes (Details of subsector themes provided in detailed SOW)
  3. Repackage and produce the information into briefs based on the five priority sectors of HH, EYCD, DRG, EG, and HA.
  4. Orient the Technical Offices on the developed sector gender briefs
