  • Provide an independent appraisal of the DaO programme implementation modality in the focus States within the scope of work to highlight the coherence of the coordination and partnership mechanisms employed to deliver as one UN, against initial UN commitments and expected results as agreed within the DaO work plans and the outcomes (and outputs) of the UNDAF/P including joint UN Humanitarian Actions.
  • To evaluate and document the contribution of the DaO programme implementation modality in the focus States to UN reform and its significant contribution to addressing the development aspirations of the states, and consequently, Nigeria;
