[DevJobsIndo] Vacancy : USAID/IUWASH – Final Evaluation Team Leader, based in Jakarta (Job Code : FETL-JKT)

The Indonesia Urban Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (IUWASH) project is
a sixty-month program funded by the United States Agency for International
Development (USAID) and implemented under the leadership of DAI. IUWASH works
with government, the private sector, NGOs, community groups and other
stakeholders to improve access to safe water supply and sanitation in
Indonesia’s urban areas. The overall goal of IUWASH is to assist the Government
of Indonesia (GoI) in making significant progress in achieving its safe water
and sanitation Millennium Development Goals (MDG) targets by expanding access
to these services. The expected results to be achieved are: 2 million people in
urban areas gain access to improved water supply; 250,000 people in urban areas
gain access to improved sanitation facilities; and the per unit water cost paid
by the low income communities in targeted areas decreases by at least 20%. To
achieve the above, assistance provided by the project is divided under three
main technical components, including: 

  1. Mobilizing demand for
    water supply and sanitation service delivery; 
  2. Improving and expanding
    capacity for water and sanitation service delivery; and
  3. Strengthening policy and
    the financial enabling environment for improved water supply and sanitation
    service delivery.

part of the above, a Final Evaluation has been scheduled with the purpose of
providing USAID and the Government of Indonesia (GOI) with an unbiased and
transparent review of the success and potential impact that USAID IUWASH has
made over the life of the project. As it is believed that, by project
completion, IUWASH will have reached all targeted High-Level Results (HRs) and
the majority of targeted Outcomes, the Final Evaluation will review the
project’s success at both the national and local levels in knowledge management
and, more specifically, in: informing policy; improving program development;
and increasing implementation capacity.
