|Overview : |
The Global Environment Fund-financed project on Climate Proofing Local Development Gains in Rural and Urban Areas of Machinga and Mangochi Districts in Malawi was designed to reduce vulnerability to climate change driven droughts, floods and post-harvest grain losses for rural and urban communities in targeted areas. The project aimed to secure development and food security gains by empowering communities to integrate climate risk considerations in development policies, plans, projects and actions by providing knowledge, tools, capacities and methodologies for the adoption of an ecosystems and community-based approach to climate change adaptation, targeting over 458,371 people in 91,674 households. The 5-year project started in July 2014 and ends in June 2019.
In accordance with UNDP and GEF M&E policies and procedures, all full and medium-sized UNDP support GEF financed 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 Climate Proofing Local Development Gains in Rural and Urban Areas of Machinga and Mangochi Districts (PIMS #4508).
The project is implemented by the Government of Malawi, through the Ministry of Natural Resources Energy and Mining with support from Global Environment Facility (GEF) and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The project started July 2014 and is in its final year of implementation.
