|Overview : |
In accordance with UNDP policies and procedures, all full and medium-sized UNDP projects are required to undergo a terminal evaluation upon completion of implementation. These terms of reference (TOR) sets out the expectations for a Terminal Evaluation (TE) of the Support to low carbon climate resilient development for poverty reduction in Kenya Project, also called the UN Joint Project on Climate Change (Project Number - 00090583.) The UN Joint Climate Change Project titled ‘Support to Low Carbon Climate Resilient Development for Poverty Reduction in Kenya’ was designed in recognition of the impacts of climate change across all the key sectors in Kenya’s economy, because of the country’s geography and over-reliance on rain-fed agriculture, pastoral livestock production systems and tourism which are all heavily dependent on nature. The project brings together 5 UN Agencies (UNEP, UNHABITAT, UNESCO, ILO and UNDP), Delivering as One to support Kenya effectively respond to various challenges associated with climate change.
Objective and Scope
The project was designed by the Government of Kenya in recognition of the importance of climate change (CC) impacts on Kenya’s development; and risks towards achieving Vision 2030 as highlighted in the National Climate Change Response Strategy 2010. The project, was principally designed to give effect to the National Climate Change Action Plan 2013-2017 (NCCAP), which stipulates the need to mainstream CC adaptation and mitigation measures in national and county planning and budgeting processes; and in all sectors of the economy as a means to further Kenya’s people-centered development strategy.
Evaluation Approach and Methodology
The evaluation will cover all activities supported by UNDP and, where appropriate, activities supported by the host institution, State Department of Livestock. It will also cover activities that other collaborating partners are supporting as part of the co-finance to the project. The TE will be conducted according to the guidance, rules and procedures established by UNDP 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.
