UnitingWorld is seeking an external evaluation consultant to conduct an end of project evaluation for the Theology of Disaster Resilience in a Changing Climate project
The CAN DO (Church Agencies Network – Disaster Operations) consortium was formed in 2016 in the interests of collaboration and coordination in the humanitarian sector to enhance community resilience to disaster and conflict. The consortium consists of the following members: Act for Peace (AfP); The Adventist Development and Relief Agency Australia (ADRA); The Anglican Board of Mission (ABM); Anglican Overseas Aid (AOA); Australian Lutheran World Service (ALWS); Transform Aid International (TAI); UnitingWorld (UW); and Caritas Australia (CA). In addition to building emergency response capacity the consortium also seeks to work with Partners to increase capacity in disaster risk reduction and management.
CAN DO is a partner in the Disaster Ready project, funded by the Australian Humanitarian Partnership (AHP), and has received USD 40 million over 4.5 years of funding for disaster Reduction program work in the Pacific region in its ‘Disaster Ready’ component. The Theology of Disaster Resilience in a Changing Climate (TDRCC) is a small part of the Disaster Ready project, which focuses on building capacity to manage disaster risk in the four Pacific Countries of PNG, Fiji, Vanuatu and Solomon Islands. UnitingWorld is the technical lead in this area.
UnitingWorld is the global partnerships arm of the Uniting Church in Australia and has been a member of CAN DO since its inception. UnitingWorld drives collaboration with the global church, addressing the causes and consequences of poverty, injustice and violence. Theological resourcing to address these issues, drawing on the skills and knowledge of Pacifika theologians, has been UnitingWorld’s strength, and why it plays a technical lead role in guiding theological resourcing within CAN DO.
