IC- Consultant/ Resource Person For Capacity Development Of Public Officers In Republic Of MauritiusProject BackgroundTransforming Mauritius into a high-income economy by 2030 remains high on Government’s agenda. However, despite the fact that Mauritius has achieved significant progress in governance over the past two decades, the performance of the public sector has slowed or even reversed. Public sector modernisation and efficiency are reported to lag behind other upper-middle-income countries, hampering efforts to accelerate economic growth and inclusiveness. Several areas have been identified by the World Bank where the quality and equity of service delivery remains inadequate. Lack of continuity in implementation of bold reforms and a limited monitoring and evaluation culture, impeding effective planning, budgeting, continuous evaluation, accountability, public sector management practices and tracking of the performance of public institutions, are believed to be the main bottlenecks of the system. These challenges have been observed despite the fact that several innovative measures have recently been implemented. They include the setting up of an electronic learning system and a new platform for in-service training of public officers at the level of the Civil Service College, Mauritius. In line with the Public Sector Business Transformation Strategy, a new Capacity Building and Capability Development Programme has been worked out. Public Officers have been clustered into 5 levels so that specific training could be provided to each level of officers.Government is fully aware of the importance of further reforms to ensure the success of the development agenda. The Government laid emphasis on service delivery stating that the public service should become efficient and creative and should focus on achieving national targets instead of focusing on routine administrative jobs only. In addition, the central theme of Budget 2017-18 revolved around a ‘rising to the challenge of our ambitions’ which focuses on public sector reform.It is against this background that the UNDP Country Office has embarked on the project “Capacity Development of Public officers in Republic of Mauritius “under the pillar 1 of the UNDP Country Programme 2017-2020” Inclusive Development and Public Sector Efficiency” in collaboration with the Ministry of Civil Service and Administrative Reforms (MCSAR) and the Civil Service College, Mauritius (CSCM).Scope of WorkUnder the overall guidance of the Acting Head of the Socio-Economic Development Unit (SEDU), the Secretary for Public Service and the Director General of the CSCM, the Consultant/ Resource Person will be expected to undertake the following tasks-Develop the course content on “Policy Formulation and Legislation Development including the end-to-end Policy Process” for Top Management levelDeliver a 5-day interactive workshop on the topic mentioned at (i) using practical examplesDeadline for Submission: 15 April 2018 on the UNDP jobs on https://jobs.undp.org/cj_view_jobs.cfm

At theregional level, the most relevant ofthese is the South West Indian Ocean Fisheries Project (SWIOFP), which closed on March 31,2013. The SWIOFP, which brought together all countries in the South West Indian Ocean (SWIO), including Kenya, Mozambique, SouthAfrica, Seychelles, Comoros, Madagascar, Mauritius, France (non-beneficiary participant), Somalia (observer) and Tanzania, wassuccessful in building regional capacity for fisheries management, including through establishing a network of fisheriesresearchers and managers, and developing a regional management framework. Ultimately the Member countries of the South West IndianOcean Fisheries Commission (SWIOFC) agreed to reform the Commission, promoting it from an advisory body to a Regional FisheriesManagement Organization (RFMO) of the Coastal States ? enabling it to take binding decisions on fisheries management, and tonegotiate in bloc with Distant Water Fishing Nations, among others. Given the important achievements of SWIOFP, SWIOFC Member Countries have requested afollow-on program namely ? the South West Indian Ocean Fisheries Governance and SharedGrowth Program (SWIOFish Program). The proposed program will be Series of Projects (SOP), over a 15-year period, using IDAand blended GEF resources, togetherwith parallel support from other donors and trust funds. It will comprise a regional umbrellaand a combined approach targeting both regional and national fisheries priorities. It will support regional integration offisheries management, while expanding the approach beyond research and sound fisheries management to strengthen sector governanceand harness the value of coastal and marine fisheries to national economies. Given theimportance of sound fisheries management to livelihoods and economic growth, the SWIO coastal countries have decided to allparticipate in the SWIOFish Program through a regional platform hosted by the SWIOFC and supported by the Indian Ocean Commission(IOC). The first Project under the Program, entitled SWIOFish1, is now under preparation, andwill implement, within 6 years, regional activities as well as country-level investments in Mozambique, Comoros and Tanzania. OtherSWIO countries are expected to join progressively with country-level investments. 2.      SWIOFish Program and Projects Objectives and Components The Program Development Objective of the proposed SWIOFish Program is "toincrease the economic, social, and environmental benefits of SWIO countries from marine fisheries. The program will target growthand poverty reduction and strengthening of institutional and private sector capacities of the fisheriessector. The SOP Development Objective-level Results Indicators of the Project would be asfollows: a)      Reduce the degradation of the status of fish stocks; b)      Increase in the fisheries-related GDP in participating countries; and c)      Increase in local fisheries-related value-addition benefitting to thehouseholds. A phased set of complementary country and regional investments would achieve theprogram development objective by: (i) strengthening the countries' governance capacity to manage fisheries at the national andregional level, including reducing illicit fishing activities and strengthening co-management of small-scale fisheries; (ii)investing to increase the profitability and sustainability of fisheries  and value chains, and boost the value-added captured by the SWIO countries; (iii)supporting policies that improve the sharing of benefits derived from sustainable use of marine living resources inparticularthrough pro-poor and community fisheries; and (iv) building robust and cost-effective regional cooperation onfisheries. The proposed SOP would be a multi-phase operation to be implemented over a 15-year period. All SWIOFCmember countries are eligible for the SOP, contingent on available funding. The first phase of the SOP (Phase 1) would extend, consolidate and buildon theaccomplishments of SWIOFP[1] and otherBank and GEF-funded activities in the region. It would consolidate andstrengthen regional cooperation on fisheries and living marine resource management through improved management of fisheries,strengthen regional fisheries institutions, and promote knowledge exchange and capacity development. It would also establish thecore human and institutional competencies and frameworks for sustainable fisheries management and prepare for major public andpublic/private capital investments required. It would also replicate and expand community fisheries co-management and businessprograms. As such, Phase 1 wouldhave a major focus on human and institutional capacity development, design and implementation of fisheriesmanagement plans, andsupport to community livelihoods with a view toreducing the pressure on the resource. A potential future phase (Phase 2), while building on the structure andachievements of Phase 1, would be a deepening and expansion phase which would further strengthen the policy reforms and empowerstakeholders and users to have a greater role and incentives to secure the long-term health of the resources. It would supportmajor investments prepared and shown to be viable in Phase 1, including in infrastructure, in co-financing of aquaculturedevelopment, fleet adjustment and fisheries reform. It would deepen regional collaborationwith a focus on ensuring sustainabilityof that collaboration and regional management efforts. It would further harness benefits along domestic and international valuechains. Phase 2 investments could start in any country when Phase 1 is completed, a sound basis for sustainablefisheries managementis in place at the national and local levels, and infrastructure investments in the sector are prepared on the technical,environmental, financial and economic aspects. The Project Development and Global Environmental Objectives of the first six-year phaseof the Program (the SWIOFish1 Project) would be to improve the management effectiveness of selected priority fisheries at regional,national and community level, by strengthening the institutional capacity of regional organizations, governments and selectedcoastal communities to effectively manage selected priority fisheries. SWIOFish1 would establish the core human and institutionalcompetencies and frameworks that are necessary for fisheries management and prepare for any major public and public/private capitalinvestments required.
