Save the Children is soliciting an experienced organization for “Mid-term Review of Child Centred Climate Change Adaption (CCCCA) Project”

Save the Children in Bangladesh [SCiBD] is a leading child rights based organization, currently covering a wide range of geographical areas in the Dhaka, Khulna, Barisal, Chittagong, Rajshahi, Sylhet and Rangpur Divisions. SCiBD works in number of thematic areas, including Education, Child rights and governance and child protection, Health and Nutrition and HIV/AIDS, Child poverty and Humanitarian.

Save the Children has been working for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation in different geographical areas of Bangladesh aiming to increase the capacity, knowledge and skills of children, community and institutions on DRR and CCA. For the Child Centred Climate Change Adaptation project (CCCCA) project, Save the Children has been working closely with the development sector, government agencies, academia, city corporations, media, the private sector, INGOs and local partners to enhance capacity and advocate for the urban resilience initiatives to be sustainable. Projects under the Humanitarian sector specifically address concerns around capacity and resilience, striving to encapsulate them in multi-level initiatives, with tailored approaches/methodologies and tools for an urban context.

The CCCCA project is a new phase of Integrated Child Centred Climate Change Adaptation (ICCCCA) project funded under the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). The outcomes of the project are:

Outcome 1: Child-centred climate change adaptation assessments, tools and planning processes are established and strengthened in communities and schools

Outcome 2: The capacity of the sub-national government to support local climate change risks and vulnerabilities increased through the development and strengthening of tools and planning processes

Outcome 3: Targeted sub-national governments are engaged in local-level adaptation planning and can mobilise resources to support priority adaptation measures

Outcome 4: National-level government incorporates child-centred approaches to adaptation in climate change plans, platforms and actions.

The project emphasises child participation in local level climate and disaster risk assessment and planning and advocates for sustainable resource mobilisation for child-centred adaptation. Partner organisations lead and carry out the field level activities and receive technical support from Save the Children in Bangladesh and SC Australia. The project also works collaboratively with government departments, ensuring they have access to the most up-to-date knowledge to make informed decisions regarding climate and disaster management risk and resilience policy formulation and resource mobilisation. The project approaches ensure that gender, disability, disaster risk reduction, child protection, child participation and environmental sustainability are mainstreamed throughout implementation; and necessary tools, action plans and activities are developed and are responsive to the needs of beneficiaries.

The first phase of the project (2012-2017) worked across Dhaka, Khulna, Kurigram, and Pirojpur in partnership with a number of locally-based organisations. The project strengthened community resilience through increased ability to anticipate, plan and adapt to climate change impacts supported by local and national government systems, incorporating child participation and gender and disability inclusion. In the current phase, we aim to continue working across Dhaka and Khulna and, in addition, work in Sirajgonj with a new implementing partner.
