Background and Objective: USAID is committed to supporting country and regional plans to build resilience to recurrent crises, as articulated in its Building Resilience to Recurrent Crisis Policy (Resilience Policy for short). Through this policy, USAID aims to leverage a broad range of institutional capabilities to strategically coordinate humanitarian response and longer-term development and catalyze transformational change. USAID’s Bureau for Policy, Planning and Learning (PPL) conducts Policy Implementation Assessments (PIAs) five or more years after policy publication and will focus this year on USAID’s Resilience Policy. The assessments aim to look across the entire Agency to examine whether progress has been made in implementing policy goals, to understand successes and challenges, and to make recommendations for the future. PIAs use qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis methods, including key informant interviews (KIIs), surveys, comprehensive document analysis, and field visits to Missions to assess shifts in staff awareness, capacity, strategic planning, and leadership structures.
Team Structure: The assessment will be conducted by a team of researchers, including a Team Lead (TL) and Quantitative Methods Specialist (QMS) based at Dexis, and a subject matter expert (SME) or Resilience Advisor position, for which this posting is recruiting. The team will coordinate closely with staff members in PPL.
Resilience Advisor: Serves as lead SME on resilience; provides high-level technical expertise throughout the assessment, including: review of documents, contribution to deliverables, and support to design and implementation of data collection methods, as well as interpretation of results.
