Post Project Evaluation in Khuza’a to Support NPA Conflict Preparedness & Protection (CPP) Risk Education Activities

Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) is a Norwegian non-governmental organization with roots in trade unions and labor movements, it’s a politically independent membership-based organization working in Norway and in more than 30 countries around the world. Founded in 1939 as the labor movement's humanitarian solidarity organization, NPA aims to improve people's living conditions and to create a democratic, just, and safe society. NPA's international work covers three core areas: mine action and disarmament, development, and humanitarian relief aid.

One key area of concern for NPA is that modern conflicts are increasingly long-lasting and fighting often takes place in urban areas. Civilians living in these populated conflict zones are often left to fend for themselves and lack the knowledge, skills, and resources to adequately protect themselves from harm. In recognition of this, NPA created its Conflict Preparedness and Protection (CPP) programme, which empowers civilians with the tools and knowledge they need to be better prepared and protected against the use of explosive weapons and other conflict-related threats. The principal modality for accomplishing this has typically been through conducting in-person training sessions and distributing educational reference materials for beneficiaries in the Gaza Strip.

NPA’s approach for 2020 sought to provide residents of Khuza’a with CPP risk education training directly in the home, while also distributing First Aid kits and basic COVID-19 mitigation supplies to each household targeted under the project. The number of households reached in Khuza’a under the project was 2,000 and the average household size was 5.7, receiving in-person training, educational material, and a first aid kit.

Purpose of the evaluation

The purpose of the evaluation is to measure the practices of people and the impact of CPP activities in Khuza’a during and after the May 2021 escalation. To this end, NPA will contract with a local consulting company. The consultant’s role will be to conduct interviews via the deployment of two teams over two months and collect and analyse data related to the project’s impact on local residents’ implementation of safety measures and risk education principles during crisis.

The information and recommendations from the evaluation will be used for NPA internal use to assess the project activities’ results and generate lessons learned to inform future programming, as well as externally as a component of NPA’s donor reporting and global protection advocacy efforts.
