The One UN Climate Change Learning Partnership (UNCC:Learn) is a collaborative initiative of more than 30 multilateral organizations supporting countries to design and implement systematic, recurrent and results-oriented climate change learning. At the global level, the partnership supports knowledge-sharing and the dissemination of common climate change learning materials. It also coordinates training interventions through collaboration of UN agencies and other partners, contributing to a growing critical mass of professionals and individuals with the necessary understanding of the basics of climate change to inform their decisions and take effective action. At the national level, UN CC:Learn supports countries in addressing learning priorities relevant to their National Determined Contributions (NDCs), National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) and other climate- related policies, plans and strategies, through the development and implementation of climate change learning strategies, in collaboration with national education and training institutions. The Secretariat for UN CC:Learn is hosted by the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR). Funding for UN CC:Learn is provided by the Swiss Government and United Nations partners.
Zimbabwe is among the countries which are developing National Climate Change Learning Strategies. The country joined the UN CC:Learn Programme to scale up the efforts being done to strengthen climate change learning within the country. The National Climate Change Learning strategy developed in partnership with UN CC:Learn and UNDP aims to advance effective implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC),National Adaptation Plan (NAP) and other climate related policies, plans and strategies, which would further help Zimbabwe to address the several challenges posed by climate change, such as extreme weather events, high temperatures and unreliable rainfall patterns.
The national evaluation will Identify lessons from national projects to provide an opportunity for independent reflection in countries to keep the momentum raised through the development of climate change learning strategies and action plans. It also provides important feedback at the international level for refining methodologies and facilitating knowledge-sharing related to the implementation of Article 6 of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) on Education, Training and Public Awareness, and the 2012-2020 Doha Work Programme. The project evaluation will examine results and lessons learned using the overall project objectives as a reference point, as well as the evaluation criteria listed below. It will also examine the extent to which UN CC:Learn projects have been compatible with principles of the 2005 Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness (e.g. country-ownership, donor alignment, etc.)
It is against this background that UNDP in Zimbabwe in partnership with UN CC:Learn and the Ministry of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry seeks to engage the services of a consultant to evaluate the UN CC:Learn project in Zimbabwe.
