Organization: Winrock International
Closing date: 26 Mar 2021

Terms of Reference: Learning from our Actions – CTIP Learning Papers

USAID-funded Asia Counter Trafficking in Persons (CTIP) program (USAID Asia CTIP, 2016-2021) brings together government, civil society, and business to support regional initiatives that aim to reduce trafficking in persons. The program focuses on strengthened learning around trafficking in persons; enhanced cooperation between various sectors in source, transit, and destination countries; and increased opportunities for private sector leadership to address the problem.

USAID Asia CTIP is looking for a consultant to conduct research and uncover learning around the least and most effective interventions, the least and most efficient ways of working, and other key themes in counter human trafficking. USAID Asia CTIP will identify themes and research questions and will facilitate coordination with USAID CTIP projects in the region so that the consultant can conduct research. USAID Asia will develop the research questions based on overlapping themes that may include livelihoods, service provision, government relations, capacity building, and/or others, as identified in collaboration with country projects. Three papers will be produced by the consultant after closely analyzing Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) data across projects, other project documents, and conducting primary research with implementing partners on the ground.
