Restricted Procedure: Mid-term Review. Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals (P4G). - Global.

Deadline: 3 September 2020, at 14:00 

Description: 

Background:
P4G - Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030 - is a global initiative that brings together businesses, governments, and civil society organizations in partnerships to test ideas, develop and prove market-based green and inclusive solutions to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.

Objective:
The mid-term review will assess the overall P4G initiative and – to the extent possible - the partnership projects supported with regard to their possible contribution to achieving the SDGs and the Paris Agreement. The review will assess the progress, achievements and results of P4G, identify implementation challenges and developments in key risk factors and provide pertinent recommendations for adjustments if needed. If available, the review will assess, discuss, and provide strategic recommendations on the plans and scenarios of P4G beyond 2022. The findings and recommendations of the review will inform the strategic decisions regarding adjustments and changes for the further implementation of the P4G. The mid-term review will be undertaken by MFA’s Department for Evaluation, Learning and Quality (ELK) in line with Danida’s Aid Management Guidelines, more specifically “Guidelines for Programmes and Projects” (18 January 2018) .

Scope and input:
In support of the review, the following consultancy profiles are requested:

• One (1) senior international consultant with solid experience in strategy and advocacy in an international multi-stakeholder setting with a focus on developing countries and emerging economies (50 days/400 hours).

• One (1) senior international consultant with solid experience from implementation of market-based public-private partnerships (including commercial/investment) in developing countries and emerging economies (50 days/400 hours).

The two (2) consultants will work with and report to the team leader. The two (2) consultants will assist the team leader delivering on the objective of the review and conduct necessary work to deliver on the scope of work for the review. The assignment will include review of documentation, virtual meetings with key partners and stakeholders, mission to the Netherlands (tentative), preparing inputs to the preparation note, preliminary findings and report writing.

The necessitated virtual modality of the review against the Covid-19 situation and associated limitations in the form of online/virtual/telephone/internet-based interaction with interlocutors without the possibility of field missions (apart from the Netherlands) makes it additionally important to have consultants/experts with an in-depth thematic and contextual knowledge and knowledge from similar MFA reviews/appraisals. 

The two (2) consultants should have broad international knowledge and working experience from developing countries and emerging markets in P4G’s area of work, and possess the necessary expertise and experience from similar assignments, including experience with the use of the MFA Aid Management Guidelines (AMG), the OECD evaluation criteria, and specifically Danida lead reviews. Knowledge and experience of the SDGs, and the green growth agenda is a prerequisite for this assignment. In addition, the two (2) consultants are expected to have the technical capacities required to carry out information collection and analysis, drafting of documentation of the review, and the thematic and contextual knowledge to cover all relevant aspects in relation to the assignment.
