Vetted Roster - Individual Consultants: Independent Evaluation

UNDP Regional Service Centre for Africa (RSCA) - ETHIOPIA | Published December 30, 2016  -  Deadline February 6, 2017
High-quality evaluations are critical for results-based management, knowledge generation for wider use, and for accountability to programme partners. One of the requirements of the UNDP evaluation policy is that programme units – policy, practice, regional bureaus and country offices – ensure that evaluations inform programme management and contribute to development results. Therefore, UNDP has been increasingly emphasizing the need to carry out high quality decentralized evaluations. As part of this process, the UNDP Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) assesses the quality of the decentralized evaluations carried out each year. These assessment findings are made available to the relevant UNDP Bureaus and programme units, and are reported to the UNDP Executive Board as part of the IEO Annual Report on Evaluation.Decentralized evaluations include programme-level evaluations, outcome evaluations, and project evaluations. UNDP Bureaus and country offices develop Evaluation Plans, articulating the evaluations to be carried out during each 5 year planning cycle. Approximately 200 - 250 decentralized evaluations get carried out world-wide each year. UNDP Bureaus and Country Offices have discretion over which of their programmes and projects are evaluated, unless otherwise specified in partnership agreements with funders. Of particular relevance to these terms of reference, all full size projects funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) require a final (terminal) evaluation upon closure.In order to ensure continued support to our initiatives, UNDP’s Regional Service Centre for Africa (RSCA) invites candidates to send their applications for inclusion in a Vetted Roster of external experts. The process for including candidates in the Expert Roster is described in the later sections of this advertisementTo be considered for inclusion in the roster, applicants would need to have expertise in one or more of the following areas :Sustainable Development including - Poverty reduction, Natural resource management, Development planning and risk management;Democratic governance - Enabling and strengthening Governance systems; Governance strengthening and innovation; Civil society engagement and inclusion; Integrity in public institutions;Resilience - Supporting recovery in all aspects from conflict (economic and governance); Preparing for and dealing with the consequences of natural disasters; andEnvironment and Energy - Water use and systems; Air pollution and quality; Land degradation; Coastal erosion; Efficient energy use.Programme Monitoring and Evaluation in the (related) areas above.Interested candidates are advised to carefully review this advertisement, the procurement notice and ToR attached here and ensure that they meet the requirements and qualifications required.For detailed information, please refer to Annex 1- Terms of Reference.Interested individual consultants must submit the following documents/information to demonstrate their qualifications:Applications should include:A cover letter, clearly identifying the “Areas of Expertise” as mentioned in the background section above;Updated P11 andPersonal CV , indicating all past experience from similar projects, as well as the contact details (email and telephone number) of the Candidate and at least three (3) professional references;Daily Professional Fee.For any clarifications please write to:- rsca.icroaster@undp.org

Vetted Roster - Individual Consultants: Extractive Sector

UNDP Regional Service Centre for Africa (RSCA) - ETHIOPIA | Published January 13, 2017  -  Deadline February 15, 2017
UNDP’s Africa Regional Hub is responsible for supporting the implementation of UNDP’s Strategic Plan at the regional and country level across Africa, working with a network of Country Offices and regional partners. The three key thrusts of the Strategic Plan are sustainable development pathways, inclusive and effective democratic governance, and resilience. The Sustainable Development Goals also neatly map onto the key areas of UNDP’s work.The SDGs not only build on the MDGs, they will apply universally and not just be meant for developing countries. While countries in Africa have made tremendous progress against the MDGs, gaps remain and several issues that were not part of the MDG framework are taken up by the SDGs. The SDGs are therefore much more comprehensive set of goals (17) and targets (169) with a higher level of ambition than the MDGs.One sector that has potential to support the achievement of the SDGs is the extractive sector. Development of extractive industries, around oil, gas and minerals, holds the promise of raising incomes and living standards. However, many resource-dependent countries are also unable to fully benefit from their natural wealth.Poverty can still persist; jobs may be hard to come by; the industry can be an ‘enclave’, with few backward and forward linkages with other industries or enterprises; and the environment can be degraded while livelihoods are destroyed. The wealth pouring into the country can also breed corruption and raise inequalities. All of these unwanted outcomes may create fertile grounds for violence and conflict.Therefore, it is not surprising that, on average, resource-dependent economies score lower on the human development index than less endowed countries. Out of the 3.5 billion people living in resource-dependent countries, approximately 887 million live below $1.25/day.But it does not have to be this way. Some countries have managed their extractive industries successfully. They have diversified their economies, ensured backward and forward linkages, tackled corruption and conflict and invested in human and physical capital.By focusing its development work on extractive industries, UNDP supports countries to reduce the risks and realize the benefits of resource extraction. To this effect, UNDP is looking for experts to contribute to its work.In order to ensure continued support to our initiatives, UNDP’s Regional Service Centre for Africa (RSCA) invites candidates to send their applications for inclusion in a Vetted Roster of external experts. The process for including candidates in the Expert Roster is described in the later sections of this advertisement.To be considered for inclusion in the roster, applications would need to have expertise in one or more of the following areas:Macroeconomic analysts;Mining and petroleum lawyers;Mining and contract drafting and negotiations;Community and CSO engagement experts;Revenue management and transparency experts;Corporate Social Responsibility experts;Artisanal and Small-scale mining experts;Extractives related industrialization expertsInterested candidates are advised to carefully review this advertisement, the procurement notice and ToR attached here and ensure that they meet the requirements and qualifications required.For detailed information, please refer to Annex 1- Terms of Reference:Interested individual consultants must submit the following documents/information to demonstrate their qualifications:Applications should include:A cover letter, clearly identifying the “Areas of Expertise” as mentioned in the background section above;Updated P11 andPersonal CV , indicating all past experience from similar projects, as well as the contact details (email and telephone number) of the Candidate and at least three (3) professional references;Daily Professional Fee.For any clarifications please write to:- rsca.icroaster@und.org

Vetted Roster - Individual Consultants: Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilient Recovery

UNDP Regional Service Centre for Africa (RSCA) - ETHIOPIA | Published January 13, 2017  -  Deadline February 15, 2017
UNDP’s Strategic Plan (2014-2017) is designed to help individuals and countries alike build resilience to internal and external shocks. This helps reduce risks, prevent crises (whether from man-made or natural causes), avert major development setbacks and promote human security. In this regard, UNDP focusses on two critical issues: a much stronger ability to prepare for and deal with the consequences of natural disasters, especially as they are exacerbated by climate change; and a rapid and effective recovery from crises in those cases where prevention has fallen short. Policies and capacities are needed for comprehensive national and regional responses to natural disasters to minimize adverse development impacts and accelerate rebuilding.One focus area for UNDP is on what happens before disasters strike. This includes supporting a range of issues: disaster risk assessments that consider geophysical, weather, climatic and other hazards (including those that are low intensity but high frequency); policy and planning frameworks that integrate disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation; and preparedness for disaster management and recovery including, for example, innovations to manage risks through insurance and resilient infrastructure.The other major focal area for UNDP is on what happens after a disaster strikes. This includes the preparation of post-disaster recovery and reconstruction plans and programmes that are inclusive of and accountable to displaced populations, women and other vulnerable groups. This is reinforced through assistance for better coordination and implementation of early recovery programmes with a focus on local economic conditions, addressing the needs of groups in danger of exclusion.In order to ensure continued support to our initiatives in Africa, UNDP’s RSCA invites candidates to send their applications for inclusion in a Vetted Roster of external experts.

Vetted Roster - Individual Consultants: : GENDER EQUALITY AND WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT

UNDP Regional Service Centre for Africa (RSCA) - ETHIOPIA | Published January 13, 2017  -  Deadline February 15, 2017
As the development network of the United Nations, UNDP supports African countries in developing national and local capacities to advance human development and accelerate progress toward the achievement of SDGs and the Africa Development Agenda 2063. It is our aim to help the region to achieve rapid inclusive growth by encouraging a strong private sector, social protection for the most vulnerable and employment opportunities, especially for the young. In addition, UNDP promotes agricultural transformation to bolster food security and incomes across the region. It also helps to empower women so they can participate in all spheres of activities, from the economic to the political. Secondly, UNDP aims to strengthen the resilience of African societies by working to prevent conflict, build peace and pave the way for long-term recovery, ensuring development progress is preserved and built upon. The organization also helps to minimize the impact of natural and climate-related disasters, collaborating with countries to prevent losses and help them to recover wherever these events occur. In doing so, Gender equality and women’s empowerment is regarded as one of the core strategies for achieving Africa’s development. UNDP, Regional Service Centre for Africa, is supporting African member states, the African Union and to adopt and implement gender equality and women’s empowerment policy reforms and initiatives. Underpinning this approach is the need for a transformative and sustainable strategies for gender equality. Indeed, a policy and programming focus on harnessing the potential of women is an important economic and social driver for more inclusive and sustainable development. It is UNDPs view that, policies and programmes that unintentionally leave out or disenfranchise women will never be successful over the long term. Nor can inclusive growth be achieved if women’s empowerment is compartmentalized, or seen as a separate activity from what are traditionally perceived as the core functions of government.Despite widespread recognition of women’s rights and the benefits that accrue to all of society from equitable treatment and access to resources and opportunities for women and men, inequalities persist. At the regional and national levels, there is growing recognition that as African women attain higher measures of economic and social well-being, benefits accrue to all of society; despite this growing understanding, removing inequalities for women has not kept pace. Significant gaps between men’s and women’s opportunities remain a major challenge and a severe impediment to structural economic and social transformation that is still the goal of all African countries.The UNDP, 2016 African Human Development Report, however, shows that human development in Africa is rising and countries with a low human development index are catching up. Yet it is also noted that, gender inequality persists and slows down the pace of development on the continent. The report estimates that gender gaps in the labor market account for economic losses of USD 95 billion per year or higher; equaling approximately 6 per cent of GDP. For Africa to deliver sustainable development outcomes for all and faster, the report recommends more concerted attention to gender equality and a clear focus in policy and programming on harnessing the full potential of women.As African countries are beginning to ‘domesticate’ the global 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the continental Agenda 2063, the African Human Development Report provides a powerful opportunity to help African countries shape their plans and policies towards gender equality in order to fully realize the ambitions articulated in the global and continental agendas. To date, UNDP stands committed towards contributing and supporting interventions aimed at Accelerating Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment in Africa. Indeed, giving more concerted attention to gender equality will be an important and is a long overdue stimulus to faster and more inclusive human development and economic growth for the entire continent. Similarly, addressing gender equality in a holistic way dovetails with, and reinforces, the ambitious agenda of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which African governments and the international community as a whole have set for the coming 15 years. A holistic approach to gender equality will also bolster the achievement of Agenda 2063 of the African Union.With continued commitment on gender equality and women’s empowerment, UNDP has successfully been undertaking a number of programmes aimed at supporting both the African Union and African member states address gender inequality and women’s empowerment as well as worked strategically with civil society organizations and the UN agencies initiating transformative programme interventions. The Regional Programme for Africa and two other specific projects on Gender and Women’s Empowerment are a good example of some of the existing initiatives, with a focus on; i) the Fostering Inclusive Participation and the Effective Contribution of Women in Economic and Political Empowerment and ii) Building an enabling environment for women´s economic empowerment and political participation in Africa.

RSC/RFP/2017/01 - Firm Level Consultancy Service for Building Resilience of African Faith-based Institutions

Regional Service Center for Africa - ETHIOPIA | Published January 5, 2017  -  Deadline January 31, 2017
BACKGROUND / RATIONALEThe growth of violent extremism is an imminent threat to peace, stability and development. Absolutist ideologies that reject co-existence, tolerance and progress represent an existential threat to many countries. Such ideologies have found recruits especially amongst youth who believe they have been failed by the state and excluded from legitimate political and economic processes. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) as the leading development agency in the United Nations System has sought to understand the drivers of radicalization, its manifestations at the national and regional level and how government, communities and citizens can be supported to respond which ensures the protection and promotion of human rights.With this in mind, UNDP has developed a four (4) year regional project anchored in the Regional Programme based on an extensive consultation process with the African Union, Regional Economic Communities (including IGAD and ECOWAS), bilateral partners, CSOs including faith based institutions, academia/research institutions, media organizations, African governments and the wider UN family.
