Individual Consultant Notice- TE IWRM
Overview : In accordance with UNDP and GEF M&E policies and procedures, all full and medium-sized UNDP supported GEF financed projects are required to undergo a terminal evaluation upon completion of implementation. These terms of reference (TOR) set out the expectations for a Terminal Evaluation (TE) of the Accruing Multiple Global Benefits through Integrated Water Resources Management/Water Use Efficiency Planning: A demonstration project for Sub-Saharan Africa (PIMS 3362) Project. The project was designed to facilitate the development of national processes, procedures, methods and options for efficient and equitable Integrated Water Resources Planning (IWRM). The development and implementation of a dynamic IWRM/Water Efficiency Plan for Botswana will address both national and trans-boundary water management priorities and will be supported by and contribute to regional knowledge management processes, directly contributing to increasing awareness and capacity of national and regional stakeholders to engage in the IWRM process. To this effect, the project was also to implement a pilot project for water conservation through conjunctive use of grey-water and rainwater harvesting in selected schools of Botswana with the aim of demonstrating tangible impacts on the ground and further documenting and disseminating lessons learnt across the Southern African region. The Terminal Evaluation will be conducted according to the guidance, rules and procedures established by UNDP and GEF as reflected in the UNDP Evaluation Guidance for GEF Financed Projects. The objectives of the evaluation are to assess the achievement of project results, and to draw lessons that can both improve the sustainability of benefits from this project, and aid in the overall enhancement of UNDP programming. The evaluation team will be composed of 1 evaluator. The consultant shall have prior experience in evaluating similar projects. Experience with GEF financed projects is an advantage.
