USAID/Zambia Eastern Kafue Nature Alliance (EKNA) Activity Impact Evaluation (IE) Design and Baseline
Contract Name
Integrated Natural Resources Management (INRM)
Contract No
Period Of Performance
Upon signing – August 31, 2023
Maximum Level Of Effort (LOE)
35 days
STARR II IDIQ Labor Category
Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist – Mid
Integrated Natural Resource Management Task Order: The United States Agency for International Development (USAID)/Zambia Eastern Kafue Nature Alliance (EKNA) Impact Evaluation (IE) Design and Baseline is managed under the Integrated Natural Resource Management (IN RM) Task Order (TO). The INRM TO provides on-demand support services and technical assistance for USAID Missions, Bureaus, and Independent Offices, and is managed by the Center for Environment, Energy, and Infrastructure (EEI) in the Bureau for Development, Democracy, and Innovation (DDI). INRM supports integrated analysis and programming across development sectors. By using a multi-sectoral lens, INRM seeks to strengthen the impacts of USAID’s core environmental programming by recognizing synergies, adopting best practices, and building broader constituencies for integrated programming. The activity is designed to help USAID operating units achieve higher impact environment programming and to support the uptake of principles and approaches outlined in the Agency’s Environmental and Natural Resource Management Framework .
Project Background and Description: USAID has commissioned a team under the INRM TO to design and implement the baseline for an IE of the USAID/Zambia EKNA Activity in 2022-2023. The EKNA Activity will be implemented in several Game Management Areas (GMAs) and conservancies that border the eastern side of Zambia’s Kafue National Park (KNP), by a consortium of public and private sector partners led by The Nature Conservancy. High poverty rates in the area lead to a dependence on natural resources and income from forests for many households, contributing to deforestation and forest degradation from wood extraction, agricultural expansion, and fires. To address these issues and impact both conservation and human well-being outcomes, the EKNA Activity is comprised of four strategic approaches (SAs):
• SA1: Strengthen natural resource compliance and management systems
• SA2: Develop inclusive ecosystem-based markets for local prosperity
• SA3: Strengthen community maternal and child health and improve access to clean water
• SA4: Develop effective land and resource use planning, tenure, and governance systems
The objectives of this assignment are to (1) design an IE for the EKNA Activity, (2) conduct baseline data collection and analysis, and (3) prepare a final baseline report. Given the lack of counterfactual-based studies on the EKNA Activity’s main interventions, a rigorous impact evaluation presents an important opportunity to improve USAID’s understanding of conservation and biodiversity programming effectiveness. In particular, the EKNA Activity presents a unique opportunity to measure the effect of conservation programming on biodiversity outcomes given the large amount of biodiversity monitoring that will take place as part of the program implementation, which will be further expanded as part of the evaluation. Additional primary and secondary data sources that will be used include a large household survey, qualitative data from key informants, and remotely sensed data.
Position Description: DAI/INRM is seeking an individual to fulfill the role of the Field Manager for the EKNA IE Design and Baseline . The Field Manager will have experience assisting in the management of large, complex evaluations of development programs, preferably those in the conservation sector and/or with international donors and provide important local knowledge/context throughout the evaluation. The Field Manager will work closely with the Team Leader and other research team members to contribute to the baseline design, data collection and analysis, and provide technical inputs for the draft and final report(s) – the Evaluation Design Report (EDR) and Baseline Report – as requested. The project will begin in September 2022 and is projected to last through July 2023. The EDR will be drafted in September 2022 and finalized in October 2022. Fieldwork for baseline data collection will take place from October – November 2022 prior to the rainy season, and this position will require participation in the enumerator/interviewer training and piloting, and oversight of the data collection launch. Data analysis will take place from December 2022 – March 2023 with reporting in April – June 2023.
• Citizens and residents of Zambia are strongly encouraged to apply**

• Work closely with the other research team members, including the Team Leader, Senior Biodiversity and Forest Ecology Advisors, Evaluation Manager/Technical Specialist, Environmental Health Specialist, and Biodiversity and Ecology Specialist on evaluation design, data collection, and analysis
• Act as the evaluation team’s representative in-country, liaise closely with evaluation stakeholders, and provide important local knowledge/context throughout all stages of the evaluation
• In collaboration with the research team, contribute to the design of baseline survey instruments as requested, including but not limited to: household surveys, primary female decision maker surveys, focus group discussions, and key informant interviews.
• Help oversee quantitative and qualitative data collection and provide quality assurance.
• Participate in qualitative data collection activities as requested.
• Contribute as requested to project deliverables, including the draft and final EKNA IE Evaluation Design Report (EDR), draft and final EKNA IE Baseline Report, and any related presentations. This may include drafting responses to USAID comments/questions on draft reports.
• Facilitate obtaining Zambian Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval, and any other appropriate local permissions necessary to conduct the evaluation.
• Assist in obtaining secondary data, sampling frames, and other information required by the evaluation, including coordinating with the Department of National Parks and Wildlife (DNPW) to facilitate data access
• Attend meetings with EKNA implementing partners as requested
• Maintain clear and regular communication with the research team and INRM support staff, and inform the INRM team of any risks, problems, or challenges in a timely manner.

• Master’s degree in Economics, Political Science, or a closely related field.
• Minimum of five years of experience with a master’s degree executing similar projects, or one year of experience with a PhD.
• Experience assisting in the management of large, complex evaluations of development programs, preferably those in the conservation sector and/or with international donors, in Zambia.
• Experience working on multi-disciplinary teams preferred.
