This is a significant contribution to the Philippines’ efforts towards implementing the CBD Strategic Plan 2011-2020 at the national level and integrating biodiversity conservation into national and local plans. The Philippine Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (PBSAP) is the country’s roadmap to conserve its biodiversity and achieve its vision - “By 2028, biodiversity is restored and rehabilitated, valued, effectively managed and secured, maintaining ecosystem services to sustain healthy, resilient Filipino communities and delivering benefits to all.”To mobilize resources for the implementation of the PBSAP, the Biodiversity Financing Initiative (BIOFIN) will contribute to closing the financing gap for the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity by identifying, accessing, combining and sequencing sources of biodiversity funding to meet national needs. Funded by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), it aims to develop, adopt and begin implementation of the Philippine Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (PBSAP) 2015-2028 in a manner that is in line with the global and national guidance contained in the Convention on Biological Diversity or CBD’s Strategic Plan for Biodiversity and Aichi Biodiversity Targets, the Philippine Development Plan (2017-2022) and relevant sectoral plans. At the same time, expense evaluations, subsidizing sources and financing components for the full implementation of the updated PBSAP are being developed through the Biodiversity Finance Initiative (BIOFIN).

At the same time, the Project is closely working with the Department of Finance in determining the feasibility of a number of finance mechanisms such as debt swaps, ecological fiscal transfers, and green/blue bonds. A PBSAP localization effort will also be done to test finance mechanisms at the local government level and to mainstream biodiversity conservation.The localization of the PBSAP in Mindoro Island will mainstream biodiversity conservation in local plans, enhance current programs, apply the BIOFIN methodology (policy and institutional review, expenditure review, finance needs assessment and finance solutions plan), and implement and test a number of proposed finance solutions at the local level.

BackgroundAs a growing middle-income country, the Philippines faces multiple, interconnected and complex development challenges in achieving the Sustainable Deveploment Goals (SDGs). Though the country made significant progress towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals, gaps remain. Achievement of the comprehensive set of SDGs requires more integrated, coordinated approaches.To more effectively support government at the national and local level achieve the SDGs, UNDP Philippines is rethinking how it engages with its stakeholders and partners. Though established partnerships will continue to be important, UNDP Philippines is moving away from funding projects that have often relied on international donor financing towards leveraging the substantially increased availability of domestic resources – both public and private.To be more relevant UNDP-Philippines aims to: (i) become more innovative; (ii) offer best practice knowledge solutions that can be nationally contextualized and scaled up; (iii) strengthen research, analysis, and advocacy to shape national policies and programs; and (iv) support targeted capacity and systems development to enable the Philippines to deliver national programs and to exploit its significantly enhanced fiscal space.To improve the visibility, influence, reputation and impact of its programs and projects, UNDP Philippines requires the services of a consultant to develop and assist in the implementation of a new strategic communications plan.Duties and ResponsibilitiesThe Consultant will review existing communications activities and consult with UNDP Philippines staff and stakeholders to develop a strength-weakness-opportunities-threats (SWOT) analysis of current approaches to communications. The SWOT analysis will assess UNDP’s engagement strategies with stakeholders, the use of technical and analytical work to inform and influence policy and program design, and the linkage between and contribution of communications activities to achievement of the SDGs.Drawing on the SWOT analysis and incorporating strategic communications approaches used in the UN/UNDP, and other large development organizations, the consultant will develop a strategic communications framework and implementation plan for the UNDP Philippines’ Country Programme.The Consultant will also support selected communications programs and activities to enable UNDP-Philippines to improve the effectiveness of its engagement with partners, be more visible, and have greater influence and impact through its work, towards achieving the SDGs.

UNDAF Evaluation Consultant (International)

UNDP Country Office - PHILIPPINES | Published February 27, 2017  -  Deadline March 11, 2017
cpvs

BackgroundThe United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) 2012 – 2018 was developed through an inclusive and participatory process under the leadership of the Philippine Government in close consultation with civil society and development partners. The UNDAF embodies the support to be provided by the UN agencies to the government. This is further elaborated through joint implementation planning, joint monitoring and evaluation mechanism and tools and joint management arrangement for harmonized oversight, and alignment with country mechanisms. For the first time, the UNDAF was synchronized with the national planning cycle and with the implementation of the Philippine Development Plan, 2011-2016.The evaluation of the UNDAF will be a joint UN review with GPH partners of the overall results expected from UN cooperation in the country. The proposed timing, i.e. the beginning of the last year of the programme cycle, suggests that the Evaluation takes place late enough to assess performance and results of the first five years of the current programme cycle and early enough to inform the design of the next programme cycle.The main users of the Evaluation will be the UNDAF partners, i.e. the UNCT and the government of the programme country and donors who support the programmes. The UNDAF evaluation results will inform the design and preparation of the next UNDAF (i.e. definition of UNDAF outcomes and expected impact) and of Country Programmes and projects by individual agencies.The UNDAF programme cycle evaluation will reference the UNDAF Joint Implementation Plan and the Consolidated Results Matrix of the seven (7) Strategic Focus Areas (SFAs), progress/status reports on the outcome and sub-outcomes, and relevant key UNDAF review and assessment documents.Purpose and ObjectivesThe evaluation will support greater learning about what works, what doesn't and why, in the context of the UNDAF in the Philippines. This evaluation will provide important information for strengthening programming and results at the country level, specifically informing the planning, decision-making and improving the next programme cycle. Evaluation will cover: i) Thematic/Development Results/Outcomes; and ii) Management/Process Results. Specifically, the evaluation aims to:1) Assess and validate (Thematic/Development Results) the: Progress in achieving UNDAF Outcomes;UN’s contribution, the effectiveness of its strategies and interventions used, to national development targets through results identified in the 2012 – 2018 UNDAF;Added value of UNDAF to cooperation among individual UN agencies;Lessons learnt from the experiences of the current programming cycle, and identify issues and opportunities emerging from the implementation of the current UNDAF;Factors that have affected the UN's contribution (the challenges and how they were overcome or why they were not overcome);Recommendations for improving the UN's contribution; andDesign and focus of the UNDAF i.e. the quality of the formulation of results at different levels. 2) Assess the efficiency and effectiveness of the UNDAF planning, programming and implementation processes, highlighting achievements, major challenges and lessons learned across these following areas:Management Arrangements;Funding/Resource Mobilization;Partnerships/Collaboration;Communications;M&E; andOperational SupportApproach and StrategyThe UNDAF Evaluation is the last milestone of the UNDAF M&E plan that was conceptualized at the beginning of the programme cycle. It is an external, participatory, and iterative learning exercise. This evaluation will take place from April to June 2017 for a maximum of seventy (70) days). It takes place at the beginning of the penultimate year (2017) of the programme cycle and builds on UNDAF Annual Reviews as well as major studies and evaluations of country programs that have been completed by individual agencies. As the ability to assess achievement of UNDAF outcomes will to a large extent depend on the completeness and quality of reviews and evaluations of the individual agency country programmes, it is important that individual agency evaluations address the contribution of their interventions to UNDAF outcomes.The UNDAF Evaluation will be jointly commissioned and managed by the UNCT (head of agencies) and national governments. To the greatest extent possible, national governments should develop ownership and leadership, as far as this exercise is concerned. The UNDAF provides an opportunity to contribute to the capacity-building in evaluation of national partners. The UNDAF evaluation involves stakeholders such as the UN staff, their counterparts in the government as well as CSOs, other international actors such as IFIs and bilateral donors. Stakeholder participation is essential and should be sought from the beginning of the process through a series of meetings and possibly through the organisation of an UNDAF Evaluation Workshop that would take place towards the end of the UNDAF Evaluation process. The purpose of the workshop is to validate and refine findings, conclusions and recommendations of the evaluation.In order to determine the scope of the evaluation, it is suggested that the government and the UNCT initiate the evaluation process by assessing how the UNDAF can be evaluated in a reliable and credible fashion given the data and resources. This assessment will include a review of the documentation available on the UNDAF design and implementation process.MethodologyThe UNDAF Evaluation Team shall define the specific evaluation strategies, data collection methods and required evaluation tools. An Evaluation Plan will be developed accordingly.Data collection – the UNDAF evaluation will use a multiple method approach, which could include the following: desk reviews of reference materials, interviews with relevant/key stakeholders (i.e. government officials/partners, donors, CSOs, people’s organizations/communities, the private sector and beneficiaries), sites visits and community meetings.Stakeholder participation – the UNDAF evaluation will be conducted in a participatory manner, ensuring the involvement of key stakeholders in all phases of the evaluation.Validation – findings will be supported with evidences. Triangulation will be used to ensure that the information and data collected are valid. A report will be prepared including identified constraints, lessons learned and challenges in relation to the priority interventions as well as specific recommendations made both to the UNCT and to individual agencies.Evaluation Team CompositionThe UNDAF Evaluation will be commissioned to an external independent Evaluation Team[1] composed of:An international evaluation Consultant who will act as Team Leader. S/he will focus on the evaluation of development results and will have overall responsibility for producing the UNDAF Evaluation Report as well as the quality and timely submission of the same Report to the UN RC Office and UNCT. The TL will report to the EMG; andA national evaluation Consultant will support the evaluation and will focus on the management process results.Expected Outputs/DeliverablesThe UNDAF Evaluation Team is expected to produce the following deliverables:Output 1.
