One aspect of resilience that is often neglected is psychosocial. This refers both to individual trauma and its effects, but also the effects on the household when family members suffer debilitating illnesses, or when households are uprooted due to natural or man-made disasters, among other situations. Psychosocial programming is often featured as part of humanitarian assistance (the Indian Ocean tsunami), or in post-conflict settings. The Resilience project team at USAID/Uganda would like to proactively consider these events and effects as part of the developing resilience monitoring, evaluation, and learning plan and prior to approval of the resilience project appraisal document (PAD). It is important to incorporate psychosocial programming and its effects on resilience as part of the overall theory of change and in discussions for considering metrics for activities within the PAD, associated with other PADs, and upstream within the mission performance management plan.
The USAID Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Program (also known as the Learning Contract), implemented by QED Group, LLC, is now supporting the USAID/Uganda Mission in developing both the Mission Performance Management Plan and the Resilience PAD Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning Plan. As such, the assistance of a Psychosocial Consultant to review current MEL, synthesize best practices, provide guidance, and develop or adapt indicators would direct contribute to the quality and cohesiveness of the Mission’s Resilience MEL plan.
