The EfD Initiative is now looking to have an external evaluation carried out. The purpose of the evaluation is to provide an overall assessment of the extent to which EfD fulfills its main objective of contributing to the effective management of ecosystems, natural resources, and climate change impacts in the Global South through increased use of environmental economics in building the evidence base for effective policy making.
The EfD Initiative should, as far as possible, be reviewed for its relevance as well as for quantitative and qualitative achievements, impacts, and sustainability indicators related to its objectives and the effectiveness of support functions for each pillar. The design, content, and implementation of the EfD program, including its collaborative research programs, should be evaluated. The EfD program model and its objectives and theory of change are detailed in the appendices and the supporting documentation.
The evaluation should consider the whole period of Sida support for the EfD initiative but should emphasize the current agreement period from 2021 and forward, and implications for future activities and potential donor support. Duties such as data gathering, site visits at the Global Hub at the University of Gothenburg and centers in the Global South, interviews with stakeholders, policy compliance review and analyses of background material, and other duties are described in the attached documents.
The terms of reference are cleared by Sida and the evaluation is procured by the University of Gothenburg. The University of Gothenburg now invites national and international organizations and companies to submit their tenders for carrying out the external evaluation. The last day to submit a tender is the 17th of November 2023. Please follow the link to register and submit your application.
