1. Background
UNICEF has made significant contribution to the WASH sector in Nigeria over the past decade. UNICEF has taken the lead in supporting various strategic decisions in the WASH sector in Nigeria such as through development of plans and strategies such as the PEWASH, Ending ODF Campaign and the ODF road map among others. Through support from DFID, European Union and other cooperating partners, UNICEF has made a lot of investment in terms of evidence-based programming in the area of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene which has generated some success stories and lessons that are worth sharing not only within the WASH sector in Nigeria but also with the wider WASH body of knowledge globally.

In order to document these lessons through various knowledge products such as technical and field notes, peer reviewed articles, Info graphs, video footage and Human-Interest stories among others, The WASH section in UNICEF Nigeria in liaison with the communication section within UNICEF Nigeria, seeks the services of an institution to provide the above-mentioned services. These knowledge products will cover a wide range of topics from Water Safety Planning, Sustainability and ownership of Water Supply services with emphasis on the Village Level Operation and maintenance(VLOM), Innovative financing in Sanitation, lessons from implementing sanitation in riverine communities in Nigeria among others. This series of Knowledge products requires experience of a team of WASH professionals who are excellent writers in the field of Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene and provide inspirational prose on the selected subjects.

It is expected that these knowledge products will not only be useful for enhancing advocacy but will also increase learning and visibility to UNICEF and its Donors. Additionally, these knowledge products will be used by the WASH section at various events and fora and for sharing with partners and donors.

2. Objectives
The main objective of this assignment is to document UNICEF’s lesson learned and experiences in implementing the WASH programme and package them as field notes, journal articles and human-interest stories, Infographs etc. for knowledge management.

3. Methodology
The proposed methodology for this assignment will include: literature review, programme and project document review, review of various implementation and completion reports, in-depth individual and group discussions with WASH UNICEF technical and field staff, partners, beneficiaries, and field visits to project sites. Structured questionnaires could be used to gather the information. The successful consultancy team however will need to elaborate on the proposed methodology to be used.
