Adeso is an expanding and vibrant African based international development and humanitarian organization. At Adeso, we work with African communities who are yet to realize their full potential; working inside these communities to create environments in which Africans can thrive.
Our belief that economic, social and environmental security is the bedrock of a healthy community drives the nature and intent of our programming.
We work to prevent and overcome situations that adversely affect community well-being by: reinvigorating the economy, developing skills for life and work, providing humanitarian aid, and influencing policy.
About Near Network
Adeso together with other local and national NGOs have come together to form a global network which was launched in May 2016 at the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, Turkey.
The Network, NEAR (Network for Empowered Aid Response), is a movement of local organizations with a bold ambition – to reshape the top-down humanitarian and development system to one that is locally driven and owned, and is built around equitable, dignified and accountable partnerships.
Background for Consultancy
The first ever world humanitarian summit in 2016 outlined Grand Bargain commitments that have a transformative potential for the humanitarian sector.
The commitments on the localization are defined as follows: increase direct funding to southern-based NGOs for humanitarian action; reaffirm the Principles of Partnership; increase transparency around resource transfers to southern-based national and local NGOs;
stop undermining local capacity; emphasize the importance of national actors; address subcontracting; provide robust organizational support, capacity strengthening and communication to the media and the public about partners.
However, there is currently no system in place to measure progress in meeting these commitments and their impact on aid delivery. In 2018, NEAR worked on developing a multidimensional framework for measuring performance against the objectives of the localization agenda which proposes a set of key performance indicators (KPIs).
To ensure a broad dissemination of the framework, NEAR would like to engage a consultant to design an online version of the framework to be published on the NEAR website.
