Consultant - Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL)Specialist, USAID Thailand CTIP

Employee Type: Consultant 

Project: USAID Thailand CTIP

Location: Bangkok, Thailand

Length of Assignment: October 1, 2019 – January 21, 2020 (16 weeks)

 

 

BACKGROUND:

Winrock International is a nonprofit organization that works with people in the United States and around the world to empower the disadvantaged, increase economic opportunity, and sustain natural resources. Winrock’s five-year Thailand Counter Trafficking-in-Persons Project, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID Thailand CTIP) has goals to reduce trafficking in persons in Thailand and to better protect rights of trafficked persons.

 

As a source, transit, and destination country, Thailand faces multiple manifestations of trafficking in persons (TIP), including forced labor. These are fueled by growth and demand for low-skilled labor in sectors such as agriculture and fishing, construction, and food processing. According to the 2016 US Department of State report on trafficking in persons (TIP report) Thailand has 3-4 million migrant workers, many of whom arrived undocumented from neighboring countries to find better paying jobs. More than 53% of unskilled migrant workers are youth. Large populations of ethnic minorities, highland persons, children from rural areas, stateless persons, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex (LGBTQI) individuals are also at increased risk for trafficking and exploitation due to difficulties they face resulting from discrimination. Forced labor is reported in many sectors, but the number of victims identified remains low because of inadequate screening, combined with hard-to-reach sectors where many migrants work and a lack of self-reporting.

 

PURPOSE:

To better support USAID Thailand CTIP’s efforts to strengthen protection systems and identification of trafficked persons in Thailand, a Consultant is being hired for a sixteen-week period. USAID Thailand CTIP needs a skilled Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL) Specialist to play a key role in preparing the Thailand CTIP project for the upcoming Data Quality Assessment (DQA) occurring this Fall by developing a MEL plan including new indicators, changes in indicator reference, program indicators, and baselines.
