Housing Ecosystem Assessment Consultant in Zambia , Zambia

Housing Ecosystem Research in Zambia

I. Introduction
Habitat for Humanity Zambia (HFHZ) is undertaking a pilot of a housing assessment using the Housing Ecosystem Framework as part of the newly approved International Theory of Change (TOC) at Habitat for Humanity. Our Theory of Change compels us to think differently about how we work. Specifically, the way we design, implement, evaluate and learn from our programs. The key concepts that underpin our Theory of Change (the housing ecosystem, people-centered development, systems approach, definition of adequate housing) provide guidance and guardrails to help us think differently to identify in a strategic way where, why, when, and how we can support people living in different contexts to achieve adequate housing and lasting positive change. Changing the way we work is a significant task requiring us to take a step back and look with a new perspective, not only at what we currently do but also at what we could do in the future. Habitat Zambia is localizing this approach to analyze the Zambia context and wish to use the results to inform the country's strategy work. These Terms of Reference (ToR) provide background information on the research. They also outline various team members in HFH Zambia will play in the Housing Ecosystem Analysis in Zambia context. The ToR also details the varying level of effort we anticipate from team members.

II. Purpose, audience, and scope
There is an urgent need to better understand the housing ecosystem where we work as well as to increase people's capacity to mitigate and reduce their vulnerability due to shocks and stressors that exacerbate inequities in housing. Progress on housing and land action is lagging behind what is needed to contain the growing crisis by addressing the root causes of the problem.

In this context and within the Theory of Change (TOC) framework, HFHZ seeks to hire a consultant/firm to conduct a Zambia housing ecosystem assessment to strengthen our strategic work. This will also be timely as we align across the continent to the newly developed Africa Regional Strategy. To ensure that the housing ecosystem assessment in Zambia builds on local knowledge, expertise, and experience, Habitat Zambia will seek to hire a consultant/firm/institution to analyze the Zambian housing context, challenges, and possible strategies.

The assessment will also be shared with the Africa Area Office, who will consider how the assessment should be replicated in other countries in the region. The present ToR concerns the consultant/firm/institution which will undertake the housing ecosystem assessment. The consultancy aims to assess the housing ecosystem, analyze the nature and scale of the housing issues in the country, and propose strategies.

The assessment will be heavily guided by the Housing Ecosystem Analytical Framework which outlines the questions to be answered (categories 1-6 with some additional questions HFHZ will highlight from the remaining sections) in which order as this process will be standardized across implementing countries.

III. Research Design/Methodology
The consultant/team is expected to utilize a methodology that encompasses the following components to answer the questions in the Housing Ecosystem Analytical Framework:
• Based on the consultant/team's pre-existing knowledge of Zambia, development of a 2-3 page description of the approach, methodology, and report outline to be discussed and agreed upon by the consultant/team, HFHZ and the Africa Area office to ensure a shared understanding of the task ahead noting that the approach should focus on secondary data with limited direct data collection focused on triangulating;
• Collect and review existing information that answer the questions in the analytical framework using:
o Scientific literature, hazard, and exposure data, vulnerability and risk data, climate and disaster impact data, statistical data, displacement data, climate data and projections, DRR/adaptation program/project data, or any other already available material or records (from government, NGOs/civil society organizations, multilateral organizations, and other research).
o All documents will be saved in a standard Excel template to track evidence
• Interview key informants in Zambia (soliticting recommendations from HFHZ) to triangulate information on areas with ambiguous evidence;
• Conduct workshops with the relevant stakeholders for consultation, collect and finalize the ideas, target groups, areas, and questions to be reviewed and deeper analysis.
• Based on the review of the collected data and documents, analyze present and future housing strategies for the next five years and possible limitations/challenges to implement the strategies;
• Produce a report with the findings concerning the research questions. The report must be in English and accessible language, using tables, charts, existing maps, and figures where necessary. The report should cite all references used in APA format.
• Present several options or strategies for HFHZ according to the following schema, and suggest focus on:
o Habitability
o Land Tenure
o Basic Services
o Affordability
o Cross cutting Shocks and Stressors
o Freedoms and Entitlements

Management Arrangement and Protocols:
The consultant team will spearhead this research with support from the Zambia team and Africa Area Office. Habitat Zambia must first approve the research design, tools, and final report before proceeding with the conduct of the research. Also, the tools that the consultant team will use must be reviewed and provided input by Habitat before pre-testing. Communication and dissemination of key findings to a broader audience must first be approved by Habitat Zambia beforehand.
