  1. Project Context

The past ten years have enabled civil society organizations, old and emerging, to position themselves as influential actors of change despite the challenges they have faced. The consolidation of certain components of civic space and the achievements in terms of individual and collective freedom, have been the result of battles fought mainly by civil society in recent years. Furthermore, the sustainability of a civic, open, influential space, and above all promoting civil society organizations, remains a challenge insofar as it depends on political circumstances, economic and social, moving at national and international level.

These new challenges confirm a need ( 1 ) to support the dynamics of influence for a better representativeness of civil society organizations vis-à-vis decision-makers and various stakeholders , ( 2 ) redirect capacity building towards the new needs of civil society while adopting a transversal approach in the analysis and solutioning of the priority issues they face and ( 3 ) to highlight and support the efforts of organizations, especially emerging ones, in the implementation of projects that create change and in the creation of synergy and effective learning and exchange mechanisms that can respond to current and urgent challenges, throughout the territory.

The “Strengthening of Emerging Civil Society” program ( ROSE ) in Tunisia aspires to support and support Tunisian civil society in its efforts to guarantee an operational environment favoring participation, the free expression and transformative construction of the company in which it operates.

1.1. Project intervention logic :

➢ General objective: Emerging civil society contributes to the consolidation of the rule of law and development in Tunisia

➢ Specific objective: Consolidate the role of civil society as an actor contributing to the construction of the rule of law and as an actor of development of the country.

( R ) .1: The actors of the SC improve their responsibility and their governance, deepen their organizational development and strengthen their thematic expertise.

( R ) .2: The actors of the SC actively engage for the implementation of their strategic agendas through access to differentiated financing mechanisms.

( R ) .3: Accompanied CSOs consolidate their role of influence on public development policies at national and international levels.

( R ) .4: The actors of civic space contribute to its sustainability.

1.2 ROSE project targets :

The groups targeted by the ROSE project are: 1 ) emerging OSCs (, moderately developed and developed ); 2 ) young people, 3 ) networks, coalitions and movements ; and 4 ) unstructured dynamics.

As a result, the project targets an overall final target of around 7,250 actors working on human rights and development, which corresponds to 50% organizations and associations of the Tunisian SC currently listed.

  1. Objectives of the mission :

2.1. General objective

The ROSE project aims to establish a peer-to-peer learning approach that allows CSOs to share their knowledge and improve exchange and collaboration between them, their staff, members and volunteers. ROSE relay partners will ensure the implementation of this approach. These partners are the beneficiaries of the ROSE relay partner fund and are considered to be the key players in the project. These relay partners play an essential role in the sustainability of the long-term project vision by creating, among other things, meeting and exchange spaces between associations at local level/regional.

With the support of these partners in different regions in which they are based, ROSE relay partner CSOs will commit to going through a trajectory of capacity building on methodologies and tools for learning between peers, networking and collaboration.

The aim will be to design capacity building trajectories combining theory and practice. A journey that will allow them to learn, experiment to be able to design by themselves new practices of knowledge exchange, community solidarity and collaboration.

2.2. Specific objectives

The capacity building trajectory on peer learning for civil society aims to achieve the following objectives :

  1. Foster peer learning as a separate skill not an exchange bias ;
  2. Develop a network of trust and collaboration with learning CSOs in their sphere of influence ;
  3. Improve understanding of the challenges and opportunities that relay partners face by promoting critical common reflection and analysis of local contexts ;

It is essential to remember that any exchange on technical or thematic expertise specific to partner mandas will be used as a pretext for learning about peer learning practices.

This mission therefore does not aim to improve the skills of relay partners in specific themes but to increase their mastery of tools, practical reflexes and peer learning methods in order to practice them in their respective local environments.

4. Mission targets:

The ROSE project aims to strengthen the capacities of five ( 5 ) relay partners ( with a regional distribution from the northwest to the south, excluding Greater Tunis ) of the project and by cascade effect introduce their learning by expressing with CSOs ( or other stakeholders ) of their locality / regions.

Main methodological elements to take into consideration

  • Capacity building trajectories in terms of peer learning should be adapted and co-designed with partners.
  • The trajectories will be implemented by alternating theoretical modules ( on peer learning ) and practical phasing of experimentation and evaluation of tools and practices with local / regional partners.
  • Activities can take place both in the premises of relay partners and in those of participating partners or ROSE accelerators.
  • The methodological approach must be punctuated with tools to be duplicated / attested by relay partners and capitalization of this learning must take shape on intelligible supports.
  • Occasional and weighted evaluations must be considered for possible adjustments throughout the mission.
  1. Expected deliverables

For the entire activity the consultant ( s ) should develop and deliver:

  1. Activity plan: A document detailing the objectives of the action, the content of the sessions, the duration of each session, the teaching methods, the training materials, the planned evaluation tools and methods, etc.

  3. Monitoring Reports: Reports describing learners’ progress and participation in the activity.
  4. Final Evaluation Report: Reports assessing the effectiveness of the training, including results of planned evaluations, reader feedback, observations, and real-world challenges to peer learning.
  5. A part integrated into the final report proposing a mechanism as recommendations for the establishment of communities of practice at the local level.
