  1. Description of Program or Project Being Evaluated

Since the beginning of the crisis in Syria in March 2011, more than 5 million Syrians are officially estimated to have fled their country, out of whom 2,9 million are being hosted by Turkey.[1] Turkey also hosts significant refugee populations from other countries in the region, such as 130.000 Iraqis and 118.000 Afghanis, as well as smaller populations from Africa.[2]The majority of the Syrian refugees live outside of the Government-supported camps in urban or semi-urban areas. Needs assessments have shown that up to one third of the Syrian refugees remain unregistered with the authorities, which means that their ability to access the protection offered by the legal regimes that govern the status of refugees in Turkey is compromised. This includes legal rights as well as access to public services such as healthcare and education, the labor market and social safety nets. Indeed, livelihoods and income are ranked as top priority concern by refugees in assessments and have an impact on many other areas where they are found to be at higher risk, such as school drop-out, child labor and early marriage, health problems left unattended, and basic needs such as shelter and food compromised. The often traumatic experience of the civil war in Syria, the disruption of families and social networks, and living in displacement, including language barriers, differences in culture, tensions etc., furthermore impact on refugees´ well-being and ability to cope.[3]

 

World Vision International in Turkey (WVI-T)[4] has been scaling up programming to support Syrian refugees in Turkey since late 2015, made possible notably with funding from the European Union (ECHO)[5] but also the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and Aktion Deutschland Hilft e.V. (ADH). The local partners who will implement the proposed Action have been providing assistance to Syrian and other refugees in Turkey for several years and have extensive experience in the provision of community-based protection services.

 

Under the proposed Action, World Vision and its local partners aim to facilitate access to existing protection solutions for vulnerable refugees in Ankara, Bursa, Istanbul, Konya, Mardin and Mersin by supporting their registration under the temporary and international protection regimes and their integration into public service provision. This is expected to contribute to improved protection from harm and improved living conditions and well-being for refugees. It is to be achieved through the dissemination of information on refugee rights and available services; a case management approach for vulnerable cases identified through a screening process, including legal assistance, mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS), and individualized protection assistance (IPA); and advocacy with government duty bearers on refugee protection issues. An estimated 71.885 refugees (mainly Syrians but also other nationalities) are expected to be reached overall, with approx. 9.377 households benefiting from a protection screening process and members of approx. 15-20% of these households from case management. The table below provides a more detailed overview of the proposed Action´s objectives, results, activities and indicators.

Project direct beneficiaries

The project will be implemented in Ankara, Bursa, Istanbul (2 locations), Konya, Mardin and Mersin. Areas that were identified in the needs assessments as having high percentages of vulnerable refugees will be served by the Action. Vulnerability of areas were determined by high numbers of refugees and host communities living in overcrowded informal housing and shanty houses, facing income constraints and barriers to accessing basic goods and services. The table below shows available information on the distribution of host communities and Syrian refugees for the targeted areas.

 

Province Districts the project is estimated to serve Est. host community population in those districts Est. Syrian refugee population in those districts
Ankara Altındağ, Keçiören, Mamak, Çubuk, Kazan 2.800.000 125.000
Bursa Yıldırım, Osmangazi, İnegöl, Nilüfer 2.200.000 140.000
Istanbul Esenyurt, Bağcılar, Avcılar, Başakşehir, Küçükçekmece, Esenler 2.800.000 270.000

While the majority of refugees reached by the project will be of Syrian nationality, the project also targets refugees of other origins. The table below provides an overview of refugees in Turkey by nationality. Information on the distribution by the locations served by the project is not available.

 

Refugees in Turkey by nationality Est. number % of all refugees in Turkey
Syrian 3 million 90,9%
Afghani 135.000 4,1%
Iraqi 134.000 4,1%
Iranian 32.000 1,0%
Somali 4.000 0,1%
Other 9.000 0,3%
Total persons of concern 3.3 million 100%

The sex and age distribution of Syrian refugees is estimated to be as follows (no information available for refugees of other nationality):

 

  Est. % of target group % female % male
0-59 months 12% 52% 48%
5-18 years 33% 52% 48%

The estimated total number of beneficiaries targeted by the Action as calculated during the proposal design phase is 71.885, with information dissemination including through a call center, SMS campaigns, the publication of videos on social media, the distribution of IEC materials and awareness raising sessions reaching the highest number of persons.

 

Based on the anticipated capacity of each of the protection hubs grounded in experience from the previous phase of the project, the Action will target 9.377 households for protection screening (based on an average HH size of 4,7, this corresponds to approximately 44.071 individuals). Out of the overall number of households, it is estimated that between 15-20% will go into full case management (1.406 – 1.875 cases, with a case principally defined as an individual person rather than the entire household unless the entire household benefits). As needed, case management may include individual legal counselling and referrals, MHPSS group or individual counselling, and IPA assistance. It is expected that these activities will overlap, as many vulnerable families require multiple types of assistance and the project aims for a holistic approach.

 

Cases will be selected in line with the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for Case Management and Individualized Protection Assistance formulated for this project based on Case Management Working Group guidance. The following vulnerability criteria shall be taken into account: Persons with disabilities, injuries, victims of torture, women at risk (including female-headed households, pregnant and lactating women with no means of support, and survivors of sexual and gender-based violence), children at risk (including unaccompanied minors, child-headed households and children with disabilities), elderly at risk (unaccompanied elderly persons, elderly persons with disabilities), single male-headed households with children with disabilities, large households (including extended families living together and nuclear families with numbers of children higher than average), families hosting another family where number of individuals in one space exceeds 14 people.

 

In addition, some of the services offered at the hubs such as awareness raising and individual legal assistance will be open to drop-in cases who are not under a full case management approach.

 

Finally, 105 government officials will be targeted for protection advocacy.

 

The number of beneficiaries targeted by key activities under the project is as follows:

Key activities Beneficiaries targeted
Information dissemination 71.885 individuals
Protection screening 9.377 HH @ 4,7 individuals = 44.071 individuals
Awareness raising sessions 4.800 individuals
Legal assistance 2.814 individuals
MHPSS group and individual counselling 2.012 individuals
IPA 1.820 individuals
Protection advocacy 105 individuals

 

 

  1. Baseline Evaluation Target Audiences (i.e., for whom the evaluation is intended?)

The targeted audiences for this evaluation are:

  • Project management of World Vision and local partners.

 

  1. Baseline Study Type

Formative evaluation.

 

  1. Baseline Study Purpose and Objectives

Purpose: To provide an information base against the project objective and result indicators to further assess the progress within the project final evaluation. The baseline survey will be designed to allow measurement of the degree and quality of change as a result of the project implementation.

Objectives:

  • To set up benchmarks against the project indicators. Note that, in line with donor requirements, as much as possible, indicators related to the targeted refugee populations shall be disaggregated by location, sex, age (children <18 years / men and women 18-49 years / elderly ≥50 years), nationality, disability, and vulnerability as defined in the Case Management and IPA SOPs.
  • To identify protection threats and vulnerabilities for the main non-Syrian refugee groups and key known vulnerable groups targeted by the project, as well as possible leads for other marginalized or excluded groups in the different locations as informed by the guidance on protection threats and at risk populations in the Case Management and IPA SOPs.
  • To validate the percentage of Syrian refugees that are not registered under the temporary protection regime in Turkey in the targeted areas, provide information on the legal status of non-Syrian refugees, and provide recommendations for adjusting the anticipated target figures for indicator 2-3, “% of refugees to be integrated into provision of national social and legal services”.
  • In line with the rapid assessments undertaken in other locations prior to proposal submission, to identify protection threats, prevalence of vulnerability factors, registration status, level of access to services, and level of awareness of rights and services among refugees, as well as to identify existing service providers, in Mardin, to inform detailed intervention planning.

 

 

  1. Baseline Study Methodology

The methodology for implementing the baseline shall aim to triangulate information to the extent reasonable and possible to ensure a good degree of validity of the findings. It shall notably comprise:

  • Collection of primary data through a HH survey and FGDs with members of the targeted populations in all targeted locations;
  • Collection of primary data through KIIs with staff from implementing partners and stakeholders such as the Protection Working Group, covering all targeted locations;
  • Review of project documentation and relevant secondary sources.

The proposed methodological approach and the tools will be developed in close cooperation between World Vision and the consultant and include field testing with a sample set of the targeted population.

 

Specifically with regards to the Action´s indicators, the following information shall be collected and methodological approach is foreseen:

Survey for Syrian refugees, FGDs for non-Syrian refugees 292 HH, 4-8 FGDs Structured survey questionnaire, semi-structured FGD guide

Primary data collection

Primary data collection is expected to comply with recognized ethical principles. Data are expected to be collected on smartphones or tablets, using ODK, Kobo, SMAP or similar applications, and processed electronically. The consultant will provide the cleaned primary data set in Excel to World Vision and grants World Vision rights of storage and further usage. The consultant is expected to:

  • Provide a time schedule, a breakdown by location and a breakdown of resources needed for primary data collection in the 7 locations covered under the Action;
  • Hire, train and supervise enumerators, which must include both men and women, and care for their provisions and security;
  • Obtain the necessary permissions for gathering primary data from the relevant authorities.

The consultant must confirm in writing in the application package that he / she or their sub-contracted party has permission to operate and collect primary data in Turkey for research purposes.

 

Sampling

  • Household survey

A cross-sectional household survey focused mainly on protection threats, vulnerability factors, registration status, level of access to services, and level of awareness of rights and services will be carried out in the form of a structured interview with adult household members to assess baseline values for the Action´s indicators, validate the percentage of refugees that do not have a valid legal status, and provide assessment information for Mardin.

 

The sampling aims to achieve results representative by hub, hence the survey will be conducted among the randomly selected target population living in the neighborhoods expected to be served by the hubs. As the hub capacities are set up in a similar way, it is assumed that each hub will reach approximately the same number of beneficiaries over the course of the project, hence the sample size will be the same for all locations.

 

As the distribution of non-Syrian refugees by location is not known, only Syrian refugees will be purposefully sampled for the survey, while information on non-Syrian refugees will be gathered through qualitative instruments. In line with known national-level statistics, it is assumed that 90,9% of the refugee population to be served will be of Syrian nationality.

 

The reference activity chosen for calculating the sample size is protection screening, which is the activity carried out by the hubs that is expected to have the largest reach and serve as an entry point to all other activities offered at the hubs.

 

A balanced number of male and female adult household members will be chosen to participate in a structured interview and in case of deviation in the resulting sample, the weighting method will be applied at the analysis stage.

 

This translates into:

  • 377 HH reached by protection screening across hubs = approx. 1.340 HH per hub
  • 524 out of the 9.377 HH are expected to be of Syrian nationality = approx. 1.206 HH per hub
  • Based on a margin of error of 5%, a confidence level of 95%, and a response distribution of 50%, the sample size per hub will be 292 HH x 7 locations = 2.044 HH across locations.

 

  • Focus group discussions

Focus group discussions will be used to gather qualitative information on protection threats, risk factors, registration status, access to services, and awareness of rights and services among main non-Syrian refugee groups as well as to assess protection threats in more detail among key known vulnerable groups.

 

For non-Syrian refugees, the consultant shall strive to hold FGDs with each Afghanis, Iraqis, Iranians and Somalis as the largest non-Syrian refugee groups in Turkey in all locations. Enquiries shall be made locally as to the presence of non-Syrian refugees and to identify potential participants, including through channels such as DGMM, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the municipality and non-governmental actors working with non-Syrian refugee populations. The maximum number of FGDs would be 4 per location or 4 x 7 = 28 across locations. It is anticipated that FGDs with all nationalities are unlikely to be held in all locations.

 

For known vulnerable groups, the consultant shall strive to hold FGDs with each women at risk, children at risk, elderly at risk, and persons with severe medical conditions as defined in the Case Management and IPA SOPs in all locations. Potential participants shall be identified through the household survey as well as by making enquiries with social services and non-governmental organizations working with the targeted groups. The anticipated number of FGDs is 4 per location or 4 x 7 = 28 in total.

 

  • Key informant interviews

Key informant interviews shall be undertaken with staff from the project partners, both from the 4 already existing centers and from headquarters, and, at a minimum, the lead of the Protection Working Group. World Vision and the partners will facilitate setting up interviews.

Secondary data

WVI-T and partners will provide the consultant with access to project documents relevant for the baseline, including documentation from the previous phase of the project and assessments on the protection situation of refugees in Turkey undertaken by other agencies. The consultant is expected to research and include additional secondary sources on the situation of refugees in Turkey in the analysis as needed.

 

  1. Limitations
  • The study aims to yield generalizable, representative findings for Syrian refugees expected to be serviced by the hubs in the different locations. Data shall furthermore be disaggregated by sex, age and vulnerability as they are found among the populations interviewed.
  • Information on non-Syrian refugees and specific vulnerable groups will be qualitative, as they cannot be purposefully sampled given lack of information on their prevalence in the targeted locations as well as access challenges. Even with a qualitative approach, it might not be possible to find non-Syrian refugees and refugees at risk willing to participate in FGDs in all locations.
  • The consultant should expect that the data collection process might face challenges due to changes in the operating environment, including regarding obtaining the necessary government permissions for data collection.

 

  1. Expected Outputs and Deliverables
