Consultant opportunity with World Bank Gender Innovation Lab

The World Bank’s Africa Region Gender Innovation Lab seeks a Short Term Consultant (STC) to produce a gender-disaggregated cross-country analysis of well-being using the new Listening to Africa (L2A) survey.

The STC will be responsible to produce a gender-disaggregated cross-country analysis of well-being using the new Listening to Africa (L2A) survey. The L2A uses mobile phone technologies to collect high-frequency household panel data on a wide range of topics including education, health, labor, housing, assets, electricity and transport, consumption, nutrition and food security, security and violence, subjective well-being, agriculture, shocks and coping strategies, as well as water, sanitation and hygiene. L2A surveys are currently being implemented in Madagascar, Malawi, Togo (Lome), Senegal and Tanzania.

Findings from this research will be published as a WB-GIL report, which seeks to allow better understanding of gender disparities in Africa as well as of what can be done to address them.
