|Overview : |
The Poverty-Environment Action for Sustainable Development Goals (Poverty-Environment Action) is a joint UNDP-UN Environment, FAO, and UN Women initiative that seeks to deliver technical advice, advocacy and knowledge products (KP) for supporting the Government of Malawi in the implementation of core government businesses, policies and plans in the environment, natural resources (ENR) and related sectors. It seeks to leverage agricultural production and gender equality to help build resilience of households to shocks and to address food security and poverty alleviation through the sustainable management of the environment and natural resources of the country. The project is being implemented by the Department of Economic Planning and Development (EPD) in the Ministry of Economic Planning and Development (MoEPD), which is Malawi Government's main planning agency responsible for national economic and development planning and monitoring and evaluation of socio-economic issues in the country.
The EP&D in collaboration with Environmental Affairs Department in the Ministry of Natural Resources, Energy and Mining seek to use part of the proceeds under the Poverty-Environment Action Project (PEA) to procure consulting services for undertaking a Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) of Implementing Urgent Adaptation Priorities Through Strengthened Decentralized and National Development Plans (ADAPT PLAN) project to assess its impact on livelihoods of intended beneficiaries in a gender disaggregated manner. This assignment is part of a continuous undertaking within the PEA project to assess gaps, achievements and effectiveness of projects through targeted gender desegregated data generation and analyses.
