Civil Action for Socio-economic Inclusion in Natural Resource
Management, Phase II (CASI 2004-2009) is a coherent CARE program in northern
Vietnam with the goal to create sustainable improvements in livelihood security
of disadvantaged and natural resource-dependent people in rural areas who lack
access to resources and influence over decisions that affect their lives. The
program aims to strengthen the capacity of local NGOs to provide support for
the rural poor in participation in decision-making and promotion of sustainable
natural resource management. The CASI Program works through partnerships with
local NGOs engaged in poverty reduction at various levels, including
community-based groups and organizations, farmers' cooperatives, professional
associations and mass organizations.
Vietnamese NGOs are growing in number and lack capacity in project cycle management, especially monitoring, evaluation and reporting skills as well as access to and dissemination of information on best development practice and results. CARE's CASI 2004-2009 program aims to develop methods for monitoring its partnerships and networking activities in terms of effectiveness and development impact. As a result, CARE will function with increased accountability and transparency.
For a period of at least one month prior to departure, the Monitoring and Evaluation Officer will be guided in researching the role of the host organization, developing a public engagement strategy, and acquiring basic knowledge of M&E in a results-based context. This preparatory phase includes a one-week intensive pre-departure training session delivered by Saint Mary's University. In addition, the Monitoring and Evaluation Officer will register for a session sponsored by CIDA through the Centre for Intercultural Learning.
Working under the direction of CARE International in Vietnam's Rural Development Coordinator, the Monitoring and Evaluation Officer will assist to develop and test methodologies and training packages to build capacity in participatory monitoring, evaluation and reporting skills for four of CARE's local NGO partners: The Women's Union, Thai Nguyen University, the Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Association, and the Thanh Hoa Union of Science and Technology Associations.
