|Overview : |
The Country Programme Document (CPD) for The Gambia (2017-2021) was formally adopted by the Executive Board in September 2016, signalling the formal start of a new programme cycle. The CPD was anchored on three major programme pillars, namely: i) Poverty and Inclusive Growth, ii) Governance and Human Rights and Environment and Resilient Development.
Within the Environment and Resilient Development pillar, UNDP support has focused on four interlinked elements that reinforce the basic foundations of the environment while targeting a substantially expanded role for women in each area of engagement, in particular their participation in skills training opportunities, positions of authority and decision-making at the national and local levels.
The four elements of the Environment & Resilient Development unit include:
- Policy, legal and regulatory framework; financial and market mechanisms; and climate hazards and disaster preparedness systems for climate change response and disaster risk reduction are enhanced, adopted and promoted to effectively address the consequences of and response to natural and climate related hazards and disasters;
- Rural, peri-urban and urban vulnerable communities are fully capacitated and committed to address climate change resilience and disaster risk reduction;
- Climate change resilience and disaster risk reduction capacities of vulnerable women, youths and physically disabled stakeholders are built, strengthened and sustained; and
- Strengthened and integrated functional climate information and response system established; and existing early warning systems related to climate change hazards and disaster risk management are replicated and up scaled.
UNDP commissions outcome evaluations to capture and demonstrate evaluative evidence of its contributions to development results at the country level as articulated in both the UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) and UNDP country programme document (CPD).
The UNDP Office in Gambia is commissioning this evaluation on environment and resilient development to capture evaluative evidence of the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability, partnership strategy, human rights and gender equality of current programming, which can be used to strengthen existing programmes and to set the stage for new initiatives.
The evaluation will consider the pertinent country programme outcomes and outputs focused towards environment & resilient development as stated in the UNDAF and the CPD (2017 - 2021)
