World University Service of Canada Baseline Study Enumerator Jobs in Uganda


Purpose of the Baseline Study

  • The process of developing the Baseline Study is part of the Project Implementation Plan (PIP), which provides an early opportunity for project partners to collaborate and begin putting in place a results-based monitoring, evaluation, research and learning (MERL) plan for the project.

  • Specific baseline values must be provided for all relevant indicators in the PMF as early as possible in the project’s lifecycle. Baseline data will then be used to inform the establishment of realistic and achievable targets, and provide a point of reference against which progress on or towards the achievement of outcomes can be monitored and evaluated.

    The main research questions to be answered by the Baseline Study are:

    ● What is the state of poor and marginalised youth’s social and economic well-being in the six countries at the start of the project (particularly young women)?

    ● What are the project partners’ capacities to deliver inclusive, gender responsive, innovative and environmentally sustainable programming to vulnerable youth, in response to their needs, at the start of the project?

    ● What is the state of the enabling environment for sustainable economic opportunities for youth (particularly young women) in the six project countries?

    ● What is the current level of Canadians’ engagement in Canada’s sustainable development efforts?
