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.

Zambia Strategy Consultant , Zambia

I. INTRODUCTION

Context
Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) is an INGO, founded in 1976, devoted to building simple, decent, and affordable housing. In 2018, Habitat launched “Global Impact 2025” (GI25). The initiative seeks to transform Habitat’s global operations to align with the ambition of its strategic plan, “to materially reduce the housing deficit.” The past three years have established a foundation for that growth: introducing the ministry’s first international theory of change; building the capacity for new revenue streams; and co-creating new models for more integrated operations across the Habitat network. Within the Africa region, HFHI recently finalized the Africa Strategy Framework which is now being cascaded down for national level alignment.
Habitat for Humanity Zambia (HFHZ) as an Affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International network is a non-governmental organization that has been in existence in Zambia since 1984. HFHZ’s mandate is to fulfil a vision where everyone has a decent place to live. Since its establishment in Zambia HFHZ has served the most disadvantaged vulnerable households and communities through the provision and promotion of decent housing, water and sanitation, savings and financial literacy and advocacy on land and housing rights with an emphasis on gender equality ensuring that no one is left behind.

Purpose of Consultancy
The purpose of the consultancy will be to support Habitat for Humanity Zambia (HFHZ) in the development of their new 5-year strategy. The general strategy process has already been developed for Habitat International, but a consultancy is sought to implement the process and to consolidate the process into a single strategic document that is aligned with the Africa Strategy Framework. The strategy steps are outlined below with more detail on these steps in the scope of work section. More information can also be shared with the selected applicant post award.

Strategy Steps / Additional Support for Consultancy
- Housing ecosystem: Will be completed by a separate consultancy
- Finding leverage:
- Internal analysis: Supported by internal HR / Finance / RD review
- Operating environment:
- Naming the challenge:
- Scenario building:
- Assumptions and modeling:
- Strategy mapping:
- Action planning:

II. SCOPE OF WORK
The successful applicant will build on the work already being done and will design a process that responds to the ongoing work globally to build greater alignment across Habitat’s operations. Implementation should anticipate coordination with global initiatives related to systems underpinning local operations, ongoing discussions related to governance of the network, and further articulation of our theory of change and its impact on global positioning. Habitat for Humanity Zambia as well as the Africa Area Office are expected to be critical partners within each of these processes and the design of this engagement. The specific strategy steps the consultancy will support are included below:
Housing Ecosystem Assessment – completed by separate consultancy

Objectives:
• Define target population (bound the system)
• Understand the stakeholders that make up the housing ecosystem affecting the target population
• Understand the key drivers of the deficit affecting the target population

Detail:
This exercise is a scanning exercise aimed at building an understanding of the key drivers of the deficit in a given context and the key stakeholders that affect the way that the system perpetuates or addresses this deficit

Finding Leverage

Objectives:
• Develop a common narrative for how the ecosystem affects the target population
• Identify the program areas where the organization expects to intervene within the housing ecosystem
• Document the assumptions driving these decisions

Detail:
Building on the team’s understanding of the target population, the stakeholders and drivers affecting their access to housing, the team will develop a narrative of how the housing ecosystem works or doesn’t work for this target population and identify key areas where they believe they can find leverage for change in that ecosystem

Internal Analysis

Objectives:
• Deepening understanding of current capabilities of the organization

Detail:
Examination of current operations looking across indicators of financial health, fundraising, program performance, talent, and growth
• Desktop review of internal performance data: board reporting, AO reporting, financial data, fundraising pipeline, org structure, etc
• Interviews with key stakeholders: views of internal strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and threats; operational challenges and risks in the current model (Opportunity and Threat information can inform Operational Environment Exercise)
• Synthesis: consolidated report of internal data and interview responses aimed at deepening understanding of current situation; report should incorporate broader GI25 and AP related change initiatives
• Validation: communication of key findings from analysis to leaders for validation and internalization of themes as we lead into the consolidated SWOT exercise

Operating environment

Objectives:
Common understanding of the macro-trends impacting the operational health of the organization over the next 3-5 years

Detail:
Environmental scanning looking for key trends that will affect our ability to continue or expand operations; this differs from the housing ecosystem in that the focus is more on the health of the entity and the operational constraints that it might face as an NGO over the next several years
• Fundraising Trends: desktop review of overall trends in funding markets that are identified through interviews with the leadership team (size of market, growth, donor motivations, market leaders, enabling environment, key constraints to growth)
• Talent Market Trends: desktop review of key themes around talent including competition, decision drivers for new talent, trends in management talent growth, future of work trends, etc
• Regulatory Trends: key considerations and limitations for NGOs, government decisions affecting the sector, risks, limitations of current registration
• Competitor Growth and Capabilities: civil society trends, sophistication and capabilities; close competitor identification and analysis
• Validation: workshop to consolidate thinking around these dimensions and deepen understanding of key themes affecting growth

Naming the challenge

Objectives
• Consolidate and synthesize ecosystem and scanning data
• Prioritize key changes in the market and frame the strategic challenge facing the organization

Detail
Exercise is designed to consolidate thinking around the programmatic intent for the organization and its operational realities. The end result of this exercise is a clear articulation of the strategic challenge facing the organization
• The competitive SWOT built over the last two sessions is brought forward into the conversation
• Current state operations are compared with the results of the analysis done to date
• Areas of conflict are identified and prioritized
• Where possible participants begin to synthesize these areas of conflict into a clear problem statement or opportunity
• Facilitator likely will need to take this away and refine the challenge into a few different options, one of these should be selected by the overall sponsor

Scenario building

Objective
• Identify 2-3 scenarios for testing and further development for the future state of the organization

Detail
Based on the frame provided in previous phases, the future state for the organization can be ideated. The goal of this stage is to identify 3-5 potential future states for consideration by leadership, these starting points will help to characterize the organization that we are trying to build and how it differs from today
• Facilitators and sponsors identify 3-5 scenarios of what a future state could look like for the organization
• These scenarios are benchmarked on the basis of match to current capabilities and perceived ability to capture the market
• Team is asked for feedback and prioritization of the different scenarios
• For top 2-3 scenarios, team works through risks, assumptions, and unknowns and validates the trade-offs, benefits and implications presented by the facilitators
• Where necessary, the team helps to refine or consolidate the models under consideration

Assumptions and modeling

Objective
• Develop a better understanding of the models selected so that we can generate commitment towards the change

Detail
Largely driven by the consultants, models are built and tested for the prioritized options. The goal here will be to understand first how value is created and deepen the understanding of the assumptions driving the model, wherever possible providing external evidence to justify those assumptions
• Business models for the selected scenario can be built collaboratively with the organization or built by the consultants and validated with the organization
• Key assumptions identified under the scenario or surfaced through the modeling effort will be researched and tested
• Financial models built with scenario modeling capabilities

Strategy mapping

Objective
• Understand the strategic objectives required to realize the organization’s strategic vision

Detail
This is a critical step in adopting a balanced scorecard approach to management; building on the model, the team will identify the skills, knowledge, processes, relationships and results that will be required to realize the vision of their strategy. This creates a logical map of how activity leads to results so that kpis can be developed and yearly milestones identified. This requires metrics that are unique to the individual strategies of each implementing team; however, we can categorize objectives and associated lead and lag indicators and milestones that help management, local boards and area offices track implementing teams’ progress toward their strategic goals. By standardizing the categories for these objectives, we can consolidate across the portfolio and make better decisions about deployment of regional/global resources

Action planning
The team will space out implementation on the basis of investment requirements and modeling built out through previous phases. Implementation should include a rough guess on milestones and performance indicators to be reached each year to achieve the intended outcome

III. 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.

Your new role
Religious tensions and mutual loss of trust within society are increasingly becoming a reality in Kenya. Conflicts and violence occur predominantly in certain regions, but in election periods they occur almost nationwide. Most of the conflicts are resource- and migration-related, but they are also based on political rivalries along ethnic lines, such as the introduction of multi-party politics in the early 1990s or the political unrest in 2007/2008.

The Sisters of St. Joseph of Tarbes (SJT) is an international congregation and has been present in Kenya since 1982. With its mission to live by and build on a sense of community in the world, it is active in eight different dioceses in the country, mostly in conflict regions. The sisters are involved in the communities in areas such as education, early childhood development and health.
The SJT is committed to strengthening the skills and abilities of its sisters in the field of peace-building as early as the formation stage, so that they can face the conflicts that arise in the communities as active peacemakers. You will support the sisters in their daily work, to contribute to a sustainable, peaceful coexistence of all people.

- You will develop a curriculum for peace work covering the following topics: conflict analysis, conflict transformation, restorative justice, instruments of sustainable peace work, stress management, active non-violence.

- You will work in close cooperation with the formation house Training Director and develop training materials to continually integrate peace work into the sisters’ training programme.
- You will advise and support the sisters in their offices and ministries on conflict-sensitive project work and assist in the preparation of project applications.
- You will be responsible for the proper spending and management of funds locally in accordance with the donor and AGIAMONDO guidelines. In doing so you will work in partnership with the Sisters of St. Joseph of Tarbes.

Your profile
- You have a Master’s degree in peace and conflict research, sociology, ethnology, political sciences or a comparable subject and have already gained professional experience in peace and conflict work in a church environment.
- You have experience in peace-oriented adult education, ideally in conducting training courses, and are familiar with peace- and conflict-sensitive approaches to project work.
- You are sensitive when dealing with matters of faith and religion, look forward to working in the sisters’ formation house and can use your communication and consulting skills in a culturally sensitive way.
- You speak and write fluent English.
- You are an EU or Swiss citizen. As a member of the Catholic Church you demonstratively share the goals and concerns of church-related development and peace work.

What AGIAMONDO offer
- Individual and thorough preparation
- Three-year contract, social security and remuneration in accordance with the German Development Aid Workers Act (Entwicklungshelfergesetz)
- Cultural, language or other professional training, as well as coaching and supervision, individual advice
