1. Project Background
1.1. Rationale for the Project
The protracted humanitarian situation in Northeast Nigeria has negatively impacted the well-being, dignity, and security of civilians. There are 2.1 million IDPs in Nigeria of whom 1,566,011 are in Borno
State and 142,425 are in Yobe State, and 78% of the displaced population are women and children (IOM DTM, Round 33 August 2020). Some, 76% of surveyed IDPs cite food as their main unmet need.
Moreover, 1.7 million returnees are at various stages and lack inputs, assets and income to rebuild their livelihoods. Repeated mass displacement 91 percent of IDPs have been displaced more than once has impacted affected population’s self-sufficiency and ability to meet their food and basic needs. Mass displacements and rising food insecurity adds strain on already scarce resources. Projections from the October 2020 Cadre Harmonisé (CH) update indicates that during the 2021 lean season about 2,673,293 people are projected to be in phase 3-5 an increase in the number of people in need from 3.7 to 4.3 million as a result of COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, 10.6 million people require critical lifesaving humanitarian assistance in the Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe States (BAY region), including 2.1 million (19 %) women, 2.3 million children (21 %), and 0.9 million (8 %) persons with disabilities (PWDs) (Nigeria, Humanitarian Response Plan 2020, UNOCHA). Populations in need of humanitarian assistance have more than tripled from 0.7 million in 2019. Protection issues linked with sexual exploitation are faced by IDPs, children, women, the elderly, and persons with disabilities.

2. PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
2.1. Objectives of the Evaluation

Likewise, the evaluation should clearly explain why (or why not) these outputs and outcomes were achieved through an integrated analysis of the entire result chain (inputs, activities, outputs outcomes and Likelihood of Impact) and other contextual factors. The evaluation will use OECD DAC criteria (effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, sustainability and impact) in addition the consultant will look at design, coverage and coherence. The consultant will extract the best practices, lesson learned, what worked and what did not and provide recommendations to enhance the quality of AAH future programming for emergency food security activities.
