Survey Expert for Rakhine Basic Needs Assessment

UNDP Myanmar - MYANMAR | Published May 25, 2017  -  Deadline May 31, 2017
cpvs

Proposal should be submitted to bids.mm@undp.org no later than 29 May 2017 (5:00Pm). Any request for clarification must be sent in writing, or by standard electronic communication to the address or e-mail to moung.kee.aung@undp.org .Procurement Unit will respond in writing or by standard electronic mail and will send written copies of the response, including an explanation of the query without identifying the source of inquiry, to all consultants. 1. Background Rakhine is one of the poorest and most densely populated states in Myanmar. It has a history of ethno-political conflict, chronic poverty, social exclusion and low resilience to climate change impacts and natural disasters. The Government of Myanmar (GoM) is strengthening its efforts to achieve socio economic development of the Rakhine State. At the Union level, the State Counsellor has established the Rakhine State Committee for Peace and Development. The Government of Myanmar together with the Kofi Annan Foundation established on the 5th of September 2016 the Advisory Commission on Rakhine State. The Commission was mandated to analyse the present situation of all communities in Rakhine and seek to identify the factors that have resulted in violence, displacement and under-development. The Commission released its preliminary recommendations in March 2017. One of the key findings was the need for adoption and implementation of the Socio-Economic Development Plan for Rakhine State. The Union Minster of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement on the 14th of March 2017 formally requested the Resident Coordinator for the UN to support the Government of Myanmar in its effort to conduct an assessment of households’ basic needs in the state. It was envisaged that the assessment initially would be piloted in certain areas of Rakhine with the possibility of expanding it to cover the entire state later on. The Resident Coordinator delegated the UNDP to lead this exercise in close collaboration with the other members of the UN Country Team (UNCT).The UN Technical Support Group will be composed of international and local technical experts in the areas of conflict prevention, livelihoods, survey design/implementation and communication. This TOR is for the Survey Expert who will lead on the design and implementation of the surveys that will be conducted for the assessment (a quantitative survey as well as a qualitative survey).The exact timeline of conducting this mixed-methods assessment is yet to be decided, but preliminary results of the qualitative survey should be available by August 2017, and consolidated results of the two surveys by October 2017. The survey operations covered under this TOR are likely to be focused on three townships of Rakhine (Kyauktaw, Mrauk-U and Minbyaw – to be confirmed) and will need to deliver representative estimates of the major ethnic communities living there. The topics/themes to be covered by the assessment are to be decided through upcoming consultations with key stakeholders, but are likely to include basic needs in the areas of livelihoods, health, education, food security, housing, as well as perceptions of intercommunal dynamics, etc.

The Republic of the Union of Myanmar, the largest country in continental Southeast Asia, embarked on a major process of reform under the leadership of a military-led government from 2011, aimed at addressing significant economic and social challenges as well as long-standing conflicts with ethnic minorities.

This reform process culminated in successful and peaceful national elections held in November 2015 which resulted in a landslide victory for the National League for Democracy (NLD), the party headed by Aung San Suu Kyi. Since April 2016 President Htin Kyaw has led a democratically elected government with a Parliamentary majority for the NLD, but power is still shared with the Tatmadaw (military), who hold a

guaranteed 25 % of unelected seats in parliament, in line with the provisions of the 2008 Constitution. Based on their 2014 Annual Action Programme the European Union (EU) is funding the implementation of the Strengthening Governance in Myanmar/Burma Programme (DCI-ASIE/2014/037-333) from their general budget to the value of 42 000 000 EUR over a period of 4 years from 2015.

This programme supports the broader Myanmar reform agenda, particularly in the area of good governance, and involves the following 3 mutually supportive components:

— Institutional strengthening and policy dialogue: this aims to support key Government ministries and other institutions — including Parliament — in the formulation and implementation of policies, strategies and action plans to deliver Government services.

— Rule of law and access to justice: this will help ensure that citizens are better protected by the law, and increase their access to formal and informal dispute resolution and justice systems. It will also support civil society in their provision of legal education and awareness raising for citizens and officials, and improve the work of institutions which support the rule of law.

— Electoral processes support: this supported the design and implementation of election management practices consistent with international standards as part of an ongoing electoral support cycle in preparation for the 2015 national election.

The MyJustice programme has adopted a people-centred approach, with a strong focus on improving access to justice, and reaching the most poor and vulnerable. The programme will design and deliver interventions to:

— Work with communities to raise awareness, share information and increase demand for services.

— Support justice services to improve their functioning and responsiveness, and strengthen supply.

— Develop existing community based dispute resolution mechanisms to ensure an inclusive, representative and fair response is available within communities, for people who otherwise lack mechanisms to have their disputes resolved.

— Generate evidence to inform policy, and in turn, communicate policy to ensure alignment with justice systems and practice.

The Programme Objective is to:

Improve access to justice and legal aid for the poor and vulnerable, develop legal capacity of justice sector professionals and strengthen selected rule of law institutions to better fulfil their mandates.
