About Search for Common Ground
Search for Common Ground was founded in 1982 and works to transform the way the world deals with conflict away from adversarial approaches and towards collaborative problem solving. SFCG operates in 30 countries worldwide including 15 sub-Saharan African. SFCG has worked for nearly 10 years in Nigeria with offices in Abuja, Jos and Port-Harcourt.
About the project
Search for Common Ground (SFCG) secured an 18-month grant from the European Union under the Instrument Contributing to Stability and Peace (IcSP), formerly called the Instrument for Stability (ifS), to carry out an action called Plateau Will Arise! (PWA), the project has been extended by 6 months under the No Cost Extension.
The project is being carried out conjointly with the Community Action for Popular Participation (CAPP) and the Jos Repertory Theater (JRT) and in partnership with the Office of the Special Adviser on Peacebuilding and the Plateau Peace Practitioners Network (PPPN).
The overall goal of the project is to build an active, locally owned and inclusive peace architecture in Plateau State. The PWA! Project targets stakeholder’s including community residents and leaders, religious leaders, civil society, government officials, and security forces in eight local government areas: Jos North, Jos South, Riyom, Barkin Ladi, Bokkos, Qua’an Pan, Shendam and Wase.
2. Objectives of the evaluation
SFCG is seeking an evaluation expert to perform an end-of-program evaluation of the PWA project. The objectives of the evaluation include:
• Assess the impact of the project by assessing the change in the conflict and peacebuilding context and the contribution of the project to those changes
• Collect the end-line indicators of success.
• Draw lessons learned from the project experience; and
• Provide recommendations for an anticipated second phase of the project.
The evaluation will be used by the project partners- SFCG, CAPP, and JRT – to inform programmatic approaches in future programing. The evaluation will also be shared with the European Union, other implementing organizations under IcSP, and key stakeholders in Plateau State including the Plateau State government, civil society groups, and other project participants. The evaluation – with sensitive details redacted – will eventually be published on SFCG’s website and shared with other learning networks in order to enhance the broader field of peacebuilding in Nigeria and the world.
