Overview :

Funded by the Global Environment Facility, the Sustainable Management of Namibia’s Forested Lands (NAFOLA) Project is a project for the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry (MAWF) in partnership with UNDP.  It is a five year project, which commenced in 2015 and is ending in 2019. This project was designed to reduce pressure on forest resources from competing land uses. Its objective is to reduce pressure on forest resources by facilitating the gazettement of CFs and increasing the capacity for the uptake of improved agriculture, livestock and forestry management practices in the community forest areas. The project has two outcomes (components), that have several outputs: 1) Outcome 1 aims to create knowledge, which would support land-use planning, and policy change, eventually resulting in gazetting of 11 community forests and mainstreaming of forest issues into productive policies; 2) Outcome 2 aims to demonstrate sustainable land use and forest management practices in selected community forests.

As the project end is drawing closer, a Terminal Evaluation (TE) needs to be conducted. 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 TE 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. 

Against the above background, a team of two (2) consultants is needed to conduct the TE. The overall evaluation will be conducted by an international consultant, supported by a national consultant
