Third Party Monitoring for the TDPERP

5681df2f48d8bIn response to militancy, in June 2014 the Pakistan Army launched a second security operation in five FATA Agencies, namely North Waziristan, South Waziristan, Orakzai, Kurram and Khyber. Approximately 340,000 families were displaced. With success of military operations in most areas, the Government has started the TDPs repatriation process. The World Bank has provided support to the Government of Pakistan (GoP) through the FATA Temporarily Displaced Persons Emergency Recovery Project (TDP ERP) to support early recovery of families affected by the militancy crisis, promote child health, and strengthen emergency response safety net delivery systems in affected areas of FATA. A Project Management Unit (PMU) is being established by the Economic Affairs Division (EAD) to serve as the central coordination platform between NADRA, the lead implementation agency and key FATA government agencies.

The project has three main components:

  • Early Recovery Grant (ERG) and Livelihood Support Grant (LSG).
  • Promoting child health in selected areas of FATA through Child Wellness Grants (CWG).
  • Strengthening program management and oversight.

.

The main objectives of the assignment are to periodically monitor selected project activities and inputs/ outputs in the aforementioned agencies of FATA. This includes (i) periodic review of operational processes, activities, outputs, and results in the field; (ii) comparing the processes and activities outlined in the Project Operations Manual to those being implemented in practice, to identify any deviations as well as areas where additional attention may be warranted. Regular monitoring of operations is to be performed at the One-Stop-Shops established by the implementation agency. The monitoring and oversight methodology includes periodic visits to project sites as well as interviews with beneficiaries and if required with local government officials, local institutions and communities.
