CONSULTANT: Conduct a Study on the Implementation of NDCs by National Governments

LOCATION: Ethiopia, Rwanda and Tanzania  

DEADLINE: 30th June 2022

WaterAid East Africa plans to support the appropriate implementation of the NDCs in WaterAid East African countries that integrated WASH indicators in their NDCs. One dimension of the intended support will be generating credible evidence on the gaps with the national governments in terms of the NDCs processes (planning, funding/financing, implementation, tracking the progress to the goals) through research and identifying entry points for capacity building responses and policy advocacy.

The overall objective of this study will be to assess the status of implementation of NDCs related to WASH in countries where WaterAid works and generate evidence on the challenges facing the national governments in the implementation of the NDCs and advocate for their enhancement. This study will assess the extent to which countries communicate adaptation efforts and use national adaptation plans (NAPs) to deliver NDC goals. It will also assess how the focus countries align NDCs with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and use the findings for policy advocacy and influencing.

Local consultants satisfying the criteria mentioned in the ToR can send their updated CV along with the understanding of the task, work schedule, and financial proposal to the email [email protected] by the 30th of June 2022.
