Brief Description of Assignment : The Government of Bangladesh (GOB) receives loans and grants from the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) towards the cost of Coastal Climate Resilient Infrastructure Project (CCRIP) covering 12 coastal districts in southwest Bangladesh such as Barisal, Patuakhali, Barguna, Bhola, Perojpur, Jhalokati, Khulna, Bagerhat, Sathkhira, Gopalgonj, Madaripur and Sariatpur vulnerable to climate change. As per the approved Development Project Proposal (DPP), the project was commenced in January 2013 and will be completed in December 2018 and most of funds allocated for the project are associated with the infrastructure development work, but a reasonable amount has been set apart for the related research activities in order to monitor and assess the performance of the project in various areas towards meeting the development goals, purposes and outputs as agreed under the logical framework. Five types of outcome survey were planned to assess the outcome with regard to community markets, roads, Labour Contracting Societies (LCS), beneficiary households and Result and Impact Management System (RIMS). In line with IFAD’s increasing attention to knowledge management and measuring project’s outcomes, due attention is given to tracing project’s progress towards set targets and performance in project area, vis-à-vis non-project area. CRRIP has two more round of survey work to be collected, which ideally should be linked to each other, allowing for panel data analysis at project completion for which this EOI is invited. In general, the scope of consultancy services will include, but not limited to the following: • Assisting the project management in preparation and implementation of Mid-term outcome study of CCRIP; • Sample size would broadly be anticipated to have about 1600 Households (HHs) (1000 treatment and 600 control), 500 for LCS and non-LCS women (2001 LCS and 300 non-LCS) and aline with IFAD RIMS survey. For RIMS survey 900 HHs would be administered. ? Collect project outcome level data including qualitative information and analyze the same to assess the impacts of the project on beneficiary households, Roads, Markets and LCS; ? Geo-referencing, use of tablets, and recording of HHs interviewed to allow for panel data collection are required. The analysis will use cross-sectional data generated with this survey for one part of the analysis, and should build on baseline data for before-after comparison, though no clear attribution might be possible; ? Adjust and prepare new questionnaire for second and third study based on baseline questionnaire, reviewing CCRIP project documents, relevant literatures and in consultation with PMO; ? Arrange appropriate tools for carrying out the field surveys including height and weight scales exclusively for RIMS survey; ?
