These terms of reference are focusing on an outcome evaluation of UNDP’s support to the country’s Environmental Sustainability, Climate Change and Resilience outcome. This programmatic pillar is derived from the UNDP Country Programme Document (CPD) for Tanzania for 2016-2021 which is aligned with the UN Development Assistance Plan for Tanzania II (UNDAP II) 2016-2021 and the Government’s National Five-Year Development Plan II 2016/17-2020/21. The pillar contributes to the overall outcome as defined in the UNDAP II which aims to achieve an Improved environment, natural resources, climate change governance, energy access and disaster risk management.
The programme under the pillar therefore is designed to support the Government in protecting and managing the environment and the natural resource base for economic and social development by addressing unsustainable consumption and production patterns, especially in this era of increasing climate change impacts. Working with the Global Environmental Facility (GEF), private sector and other development partners, projects were designed to support the Government in its efforts to conserve the environment and natural resources for improved livelihoods and national economic development through climate change adaptation and mitigation initiatives such as promoting sustainable land management; building national and local capacity for law enforcement on illegal wildlife trade, watershed management, promote energy access, early warning systems and disaster risk management.
Through the pillar, UNDP also supports rural communities to have better access to clean energy by partnering with the private sector and assisting the Government in the promotion of renewable energy sources, improved energy standards, energy efficient technologies and clean energy practices. Downstream interventions for income generation and scaling up new energy-saving technologies aim to contribute to reducing the burden of women’s unpaid care work and draw lessons from the previous programme cycle (UNDAP I) to inform planning and policymaking.
The pillar as a contributor to the UNDAP II outcome is divided into three outputs namely:
The outputs are further articulated through projects, whose full list is provided in Annex I which shows the projects under each output. Due to the nature of the interventions, the geographic scope of these projects is wide in various parts of the country. There are at least eight ongoing projects that contribute to this outcome and three that have just started implementation. Key partners in the implementation include line ministries at national level, local government authorities in respective locales and civil society organizations. Other partners include UN sister agencies and development partners who directly or indirectly contribute to the achievement of the outcome. Their work or resources has complemented and/or supported UNDP’s work in this area. These are mentioned individually in the respective projects that are under the pillar.
This evaluation fits within the context of measuring and tracking the progress made by UNDP towards achieving its desired contribution to the outcome. It forms part of the CPD Evaluation plan and will feed into the UNDAP II evaluation at mid-term stage next year. Project evaluations (mid-term or final) have been conducted for some projects, whose findings will complement and add inputs to this outcome evaluation so as to provide a complete picture of how UNDP is contributing to this outcome.
