Average: 2.8 (21 votes)

Terms of Reference Training on “Moving beyond disaggregated data collection”


The Government of Rwanda is making impressive progress towards its target of becoming a middle-income country. In order to ensure that men, women and people with disabilities enjoy equal opportunities to benefit from progress, promoting gender equality and inclusion of people with disabilities is crucial. Furthermore, Rwanda’s demographic situation demands careful consideration of population dynamics and the HIV epidemic in order to ensure that progress is both inclusive and sustainable.

Rwanda’s national strategies and policies, as well as GIZ and BMZ, require that these cross-cutting issues are systematically addressed in development efforts. In GIZ Rwanda, effective mainstreaming efforts are coordinated by the “One Mainstreaming Team” which provides technical support to programmes and head office in relation to all mainstreaming topics. A One Mainstreaming analysis conducted for the GIZ’s decentralization and good governance programme (DGG) in March 2016 concluded that the topics of gender equality, inclusion of people with disabilities and population dynamics are the most relevant to the scope of intervention. The analysis also identified and reviewed the capacities and achievements of programme partners in mainstreaming the above mentioned topic.

One of the key capacities in this regard is the process of collecting, analyzing and utilizing data disaggregated by sex, disability and age to monitor whether different groups enjoy equal opportunities to participate in and benefit from interventions. This includes going beyond the data, but looking at issues of the quality of participation and benefits, as illustrated in Figure 1: Data Disaggregation Arrow.

The One Mainstreaming analysis concluded that the partners of DGG are advanced in collecting disaggregated data,especially by sex, but have varied expertise and experiences when it comes to analysis and issues of quality participation and benefits. The analysismade recommendations to improve and further strengthen capacities in this regard, especially, for moving beyond data collection.

It is against this background that GIZ Rwanda/DGG is looking for a consultant to design and delivera training on strategic and systematic disaggregated data collection, analysis and moving beyond data.

  2. Demonstrate how disaggregated data can be strategically used for improving the inclusiveness and quality of interventions

Expected results

  • Partners understand the rationale for and importance of systematically collecting, analyzing and utilizing disaggregated data, by sex/gender, disability and age
  • Partners are familiar with different tools used in data collection and analysis and understand how to apply them in their own projects and context
