|Overview : |
This is the Terms of Reference (ToR) for the UNDP-GEF Midterm Review (MTR) of the full-sized project titled Support to the Orange-Senqu River Basin Strategic Action Programme (SAP) Implementation (PIMS# 5506) implemented through the Orange-Senqu River Basin Commission (ORASECOM), which is to be undertaken in 2021. The project started on the 1st May 2019 and is in its third year of implementation. In line with the UNDP-GEF Guidance on MTRs, this MTR process was initiated before the submission of the second Project Implementation Report (PIR). This ToR sets out the expectations for this MTR. The MTR process must follow the guidance outlined in the document Guidance For Conducting Midterm Reviews of UNDP-Supported, GEF-Financed Projects (https://intranet.undp.org/unit/office/eo/SitePages/gef-evaluation-guidelines.aspx) specifically: (COVID) UNDP-GEF-MTR-TOR-Template-June2020_ENGLISH_JobsSite (3)).
The Local consultant will work with an International Consultant to conduct The MTR which will assess progress towards the achievement of the project objectives and outcomes as specified in the Project Document and assess early signs of project success or failure with the goal of identifying the necessary changes to be made to set the project on-track to achieve its intended results. The MTR will also review the project’s strategy and its risks to sustainability. Further, the MTR will assess the impact of COVID 19 on the implementation of the project and make recommendations on necessary changes in order for the project to still continue to make reasonable level of implementation progress even with the COVID 19 pandemic situation.
