The EUROCLIMA + program is a regional cooperation project of the European Commission. It aims to support Latin American (LA) countries in the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions, in terms of adaptation and mitigation of climate change within the framework of COP21, through a) the identification and implementation of innovative projects in six priority sectors identified jointly with the 18 partner countries, and b) the promotion of a political dialogue at national and regional levels.
The Resilient Food Production (RFP) sector is jointly implemented by GIZ and Expertise France. Project funding is led and managed by GIZ while the Technical Assistance is managed by Expertise France in direct coordination with GIZ. Ten projects are currently being funded and implemented in Argentina, Colombia, Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama, Peru, and Uruguay.
Technical assistance (TA) is guided by the TA strategy which was defined in coordination with key stakeholders of the RFP sector (project implementing agencies, EUROCLIMA+ National Focal Points and the RFP Sector Working Group). Communication, visibility and knowledge management at project level and sector level is an important part of the technical assistance. TA is provided through different modalities, including:
The overall objective (impact) of the EUROCLIMA+ programme is to support LA countries to make progress in the implementation of their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in order to reduce national emissions and adapt to the impacts of climate change, globally and in a specific number of sectors. The results framework is made up of 4 levels: an overarching EUROCLIMA+ Programme Logframe underpinned by sector logframes, themselves underpinned by project logframes and TA logframes.
The specific objective (outcome) of the RFP sector is to improve LA countries’ capacities (for example, with regard to institutions, public policies, regulatory frameworks, monitoring systems) to increase resilience to climate change, the efficiency of agricultural and livestock production systems in relation to carbon and water, as well as interconnected food and agricultural value chains, in accordance with sectoral commitments related to NDCs. The RFP sector has a total budget of 12,5M Euros, including 9.3M Euros from EUROCLIMA+ funds and 3.3 M Euros in projects co-funding.
Seven projects were launched in June 2019 and three projects in January 2020, for an initial period of 24 months. Due to the covid-19 pandemic, projects reduced the scope of and adapted their activities in 2020, and several of those which had begun in June 2019 asked for a 3 to 6 months extension. An assessment of projects’ progress was carried out by GIZ in October 2020 (at project level – project logframes). A mid-term evaluation at sector level (sector logframe) was carried out by EF in April – June 2021.
Monitoring of projects, TA and sectors within the EUROCLIMA+ Programme is performed through an online platform called EUCLIDES (a monitoring database specially designed for the EUROCLIMA+ programme).
In this context, Expertise France is looking for a consultant or a team of consultants to conduct an external final evaluation of the TA provided by Expertise France to the RFP sector within the EUROCLIMA+ programme, based on TA logical framework and its respective indicators:
 Six sectors: FBE (Forest, Biodiversity and Ecosystems), DRR (Disaster Risk Reduction), RFP (Resilient Food Production), UM (Urban Mobility), Water and Energy and energetic efficiency.
The consultant must have all the software licenses needed to perform the assignment, especially regarding virtual environment and tools to be used to perform the remote evaluation.
Expertise France can provide Zoom access for meetings and webinars.
