Independent Evaluator at Institute for Human Rights and Business

CALL FOR TENDER: CONSULTANT FOR MID-TERM REVIEW OF MYANMAR CENTRE FOR RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS

OVERVIEW
The Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB) is a co-founder, along with the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR), of the Myanmar Centre for Responsible Business (MCRB).  MCRB was established in Yangon in July 2013 on the premise that while business and investment are needed for human rights and human development to be realised in Myanmar, only responsible business will achieve this aim in the long term.  The Centre’s vision is one in which private sector investments and operations in Myanmar have not only minimum negative impact but also maximise positive impact on human rights.  With the overall goal of supporting inclusive economic growth accompanied by responsible business practices, the immediate objective of MCRB is that “an effective and legitimate platform on responsible business is present in Myanmar for the creation of knowledge, capacity and dialogue amongst businesses, CSOs and government based on local needs and international standards”.

CONSULTANT CALL FOR TENDER
IHRB is recruiting an independent consultant to undertake a mid-term review of MCRB with a view to:
• Assess whether strategic objectives and thematic areas continue to be relevant in the current context;
• Assess the results and achievements of MCRB’s work so far;
• Identify lessons learned and recommendations to strengthen MCRB’s future strategy, operation and pursuit of intended impact
• Provide recommendations on strengthening MCRB’s local ownership and long term sustainability.

The mid-term review is planned to start in early May 2015 and be finalized in August 2015.
