La soumission qui répondra à l'ensemble des exigences et possèdera le meilleur rapport qualité/prix sera sélectionnée aux fins d'attribution du contrat. Description de l'appel d'offres 1.La Division Afrique Sub-saharienne du DCAF Le DCAF ? Centre pour la Gouvernance du Secteur de la Sécurité (www.dcaf.ch) s'est engagé à améliorer la sécurité des personnes et des États dans lesquels elles vivent, à travers l'application d'une gouvernance démocratique, de l'état de droit et du respect des droits humains. Pour atteindre cet objectif, le DCAF travaille aux côtés des États partenaires et des acteurs internationaux qui les soutiennent, dans le but d'améliorer leur gouvernance sécuritaire à travers des réformes intégratrices et participatives. A cet effet, le DCAF élabore des outils de connaissance innovants, promeut les normes et les bonnes pratiques, fournit des conseils juridiques et stratégiques, et soutient le développement des capacités des acteurs étatiques et non-étatiques du secteur de la sécurité. La Division Afrique Sub-Saharienne du DCAF s'appuie sur une trentaine de collaborateurs permanents et d'experts techniques et intervient à partir du siège à Genève et de ses représentations à Addis-Abeba, Bamako, Banjul et Niamey. Dans le cadre de nos projets définis conjointement avec les Etats bénéficiaires et nos donateurs, nous délivrons des prestations hautement spécialisées visant à renforcer les processus politiques et techniques de gouvernance des institutions sécuritaires. Au travers de notre action, nous renforçons les capacités de gestion et d'organisation internes de ces institutions, ainsi que leur redevabilité envers les populations et les institutions démocratiques, dans le respect des droits de l'homme et du principe d'égalité des genres. Au Sahel, le DCAF concentre ses efforts sur le Burkina Faso, le Mali et le Niger. Leurs frontières communes avec la région conflictuelle du Liptako-Gourma et la fragile démocratisation dans laquelle ils sont engagés ont conduit ces pays et leurs bailleurs de fonds à solliciter l'appui technique et financier du DCAF pour soutenir la réforme du secteur de la sécurité. 2.Contexte d'intervention Au lendemain de la crise de 2012 au Mali, la réforme du secteur de la sécurité (RSS) est apparue à la fois comme un vecteur et une condition préalable à la reconstruction post-conflit, cruciale non seulement pour la survie de l'État, mais aussi pour l'établissement d'une paix durable dans le pays et au Sahel. Le DCAF, présent au Mali depuis 2009 à la demande du Gouvernement et des partenaires nationaux, s'est particulièrement impliqué dans l'apport d'un appui stratégique, technique et financier au processus de RSS dans le cadre de l'accord de paix d'Alger de 2015. Le projet du DCAF « Renforcer la gouvernance du secteur de la sécurité au Mali, 2017-2020 », financé par le Royaume des Pays-Bas, vise à soutenir les parties prenantes maliennes dans la création d'institutions de sécurité démocratiquement gouvernées, efficaces et responsables en tant que fondement d'une paix et d'un développement durables. Le projet se concentre sur la responsabilité du secteur de la sécurité, l'égalité des genre et la participation des citoyens à la gouvernance et à la réforme du secteur de la sécurité (G/RSS) à travers une approche multipartite. Il donne la priorité à l'appropriation locale, en s'alignant sur le Programme d'Action du Gouvernement (PAG) 2013-2018 et du Cadre politique de la CEDEAO pour la G/RSS. 3.Cadre programmatique du projet « Améliorer la gouvernance du secteur de la sécurité au Mali ».  Résultat 1 : L'exécutif adopte des stratégies et crée des structures et des politiques institutionnelles pour guider et gérer le processus de réforme du secteur de la sécurité, conformément aux principes démocratiques, au respect des droits de l'homme, à l'égalité de genre et à la primauté du droit ; Résultat 2: Les institutions de sécurité intérieure, telles que la gendarmerie et la police nationale, adoptent des politiques et des pratiques leur permettant de s'acquitter efficacement de leur mandat (conformément à l'article 24 de l'accord de paix) et de répondre aux besoins de la population, dans un cadre transparent, le respect des droits de l'homme et l'égalité de genre ; Résultat 3: Les acteurs du contrôle, y compris l'Assemblée nationale, les institutions nationales des droits de l'homme, les communautés et les groupes de la société civile, exercent leur rôle de contrôle externe du secteur de la sécurité et de l'exécutif de manière efficace et en défendant les objectifs de l'égalité de genre. 4.Portée de l'évaluation En étroite collaboration avec l'équipe du projet, les partenaires opérationnels et les bénéficiaires, le Consultant-Evaluateur aura à mener une évaluation finale avec les objectifs suivants : - Apprécier les résultats et les effets atteints par le projet, en se référant au cadre logique du projet ; - Apprécier l'efficacité de l'approche méthodologique utilisée par le projet ? nos activités et nos méthodes - par rapport aux résultats attendus ; - Evaluer le niveau de participation et d'adhésion des partenaires et des bénéficiaires dans la réalisation du projet ; - Sur base des points ci-dessus, formuler des recommandations concrètes et spécifiques pouvant guider les prochaines interventions du DCAF au Mali. 5.Critères de l'évaluation Pour chacun des objectifs et résultats attendus du projet, l'évaluation devra répondre aux questions fondamentales suivantes réparties selon cinq critères d'évaluation que sont la pertinence, la cohérence, l'efficacité, l'efficience et la viabilité/durabilité.

Evaluation Specialist - Policy and Data

South Korea, Incheon, Songdo - Green Climate Fund

Grade: IS - 4 Deadline: 12 July 2021 (11:59 PM KST) Location: Songdo, Incheon, South Korea Contract Length: 3 years Salary: USD 114,600   The Green Climate Fund (GCF) is a multilateral fund created to make significant, ambitious contributions to the global efforts to combat climate change. GCF contributes to achieving the objectives of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Paris Agreement. In the context of sustainable development, GCF aims to promote a paradigm shift towards low-emission and climate resilient development pathways by providing support to developing countries to limit or reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and to adapt to climate change, while accounting for their needs and supporting particularly those that are vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change. The GCF is governed by a Board, composed of an equal number of members from developed and developing countries. It is operated by an independent Secretariat headed by an Executive Director.   The Independent Evaluation Unit (IEU) ensures the Green Climate Fund (GCF) is accountable and effective. It conducts independent evaluations of the GCF's activities to guarantee its accountability and synthesises learnings from high-quality and rigorous evaluations to support the GCF's effectiveness and efficiency. It operates independently of the GCF Secretariat. Its Head is appointed by and reports directly to the Board. The IEU also provides evaluation reports to the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), for purposes of periodic reviews of the Financial Mechanism, of which GCF is a part. The IEU was established by the GCF Board as an independent unit to provide objective assessments of the performance and results of the Fund, including its funded activities, its effectiveness, and its efficiency. The IEU has several objectives: a. Informing decision-making by the Board and identifying and disseminating lessons learned, contributing to guiding the GCF and stakeholders as a learning institution, providing strategic guidance; b. Conducting periodic independent evaluations of the GCF performance to objectively assess the results of the GCF and the effectiveness and efficiency of its activities; c. Providing evaluation reports to the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Paris Agreement for purposes of periodic reviews of the Financial Mechanism. The IEU has a mandate for both discharging an accountability function and supporting a learning function. These are central to the GCF being a learning organization as laid out in its Governing Instrument and its initial strategic plan.   The responsibilities of the IEU are as follows:   a. Evaluation:   The IEU will undertake independent overall, portfolio, country, thematic, programme evaluations that inform the GCF strategic result areas. In key cases, it will also support and undertake project evaluations. The IEU will use relevant and innovative methods and an independent peer-review mechanism that will provide guidance on independent evaluations. The vision, criteria and guidelines for these will be laid out in the independent evaluation policy. The IEU is also mandated to independently peer review and attest the quality of the GCF self-evaluation;   b. Advisory and capacity support:   The IEU is required to advise the Board by synthesizing findings and lessons learned from its evaluations. These findings and lessons learned are expected to also inform the Executive Director of the Secretariat and other GCF stakeholders. The IEU will engage closely with the independent evaluation units of intermediaries and implementing entities of the GCF, including National Designated Authorities (NDAs) and Accredited Entities (AEs). It will provide support to catalyse learning and build and strengthen the NDAs and AEs evaluation capacity. It will also provide guidelines and support evaluation related research that helps produce rigorous evidence in the GCF result areas;   c. Learning:   The IEU will support the GCF in its learning function by ensuring that recommendations from independent evaluations are incorporated into the Secretariat's functioning and processes. This includes recommending possible improvements to the GCF performance indicators and its initial results framework, after accounting for international experience and the results of the evaluation;   d. Engagement:   The IEU will actively participate in relevant evaluation networks to ensure that it is at the frontier of evaluation practice. The IEU will involve its own staff and staff from the NDAs and AEs in evaluations wherever feasible and appropriate. In addition, the IEU will support knowledge hubs of low-emission and climate-resilient pathways. Evaluation Specialist Responsibilities   Purpose ? Adapt ?
