|Overview : |
The Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) conducts independent country programme evaluations (ICPEs) to assess UNDP’s contribution to national development priorities and the effectiveness of its strategy. The purpose of an ICPE is to: i) support the development of the next UNDP Country Programme Document; and ii) strengthen UNDP’s accountability to national stakeholders and to the Executive Board.
The IEO will conduct the ICPE for UNDP country programme in Ghana in 2021, covering the period of 2018-2022. Results of the evaluation are expected to feed into the preparation of a new programme starting from 2023.
The IEO is seeking a locally-/ regionally-based think tank, academic or research institution to support its data collection and analysis. The evaluation will examine the following programmatic outcome areas as set forth in the the UNDP Country Programme for Ghana and the United Nations Sustainable Development Partnership (UNSDP). The national/ regional research institution will provide support to one or more of the areas based on its expertise:
- Inclusive, equitable and accountable governance: Supports cost-effectiveness and efficiency in institutions related to access to justice, conflict prevention and resolution, electoral processes and national development planning and accountability.
- Green, equitable and resilient development: Supports strengthening public institutional capacities to reduce environmental degradation and implement climate action, and facilitating access to information, knowledge and tools to promote green jobs, citizen participation in environmental conservation and community resilience.
