|Overview : |
This is the Terms of Reference (ToR) for the UNDP-GEF Midterm Review (MTR) of the full-sized project titled Securing multiple ecosystems benefit through SLM in the productive but degraded landscapes of South Africa (PIMS 5054) implemented through the Department of Environmental Affairs, Forestry and Fisheries (DEFF), which is to be undertaken in 2019. The project started on the 19 April 2017 and is in its third year of implementation. In line with the UNDP-GEF Guidance on MTRs, this MTR process was initiated before the submission of the second Project Implementation Report (PIR). This ToR sets out the expectations for this MTR. The MTR process must follow the guidance outlined in the document Guidance For Conducting Midterm Reviews of UNDP-Supported, GEF-Financed Projects (insert hyperlink).
In this regard, UNDP together with Department of Enviromental are looking for a consultant to assess progress towards the achievement of the project objectives and outcomes as specified in the Project Document and assess early signs of project success or failure with the goal of identifying the necessary changes to be made in order to set the project on-track to achieve its intended results. The MTR will also review the project’s strategy, its risks to sustainability.
