About the Project

The Australian Humanitarian Partnership (AHP) is a partnership between the Australian Government and six Australian non-government organisations (NGOs). The AHP Bangladesh Humanitarian Response Phase III (July 2020 – June 2023) was funded by the Australian Government to address the ongoing needs of displaced Rohingya and host communities.

The independent, joint evaluation of AHP Bangladesh Phase III will assess the impact, effectiveness, efficiency, relevance and sustainability of the program. It will also evaluate the extent that the program has met the needs of the most vulnerable, has been accountable to the affected populations and has been implemented through a locally led approach.

The evaluation will be conducted by a team of up to three consultants, including a team leader and two team members, who can be engaged either as a consortium or as individuals. For more information about the project, please click the link below.
