The Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is undertaking an evaluation of UNDP support for climate resilience. The evaluation is part of the IEO workplan (CP/2018/4), approved by the Executive Board in January 2018.
IEO last considered UNDP support to disaster risk reduction and recovery in 2010, and UNDP has since then restructured and expanded its disaster risk reduction and climate resilience support. The focus of the evaluation will be on UNDP support to countries that are especially vulnerable to climate shocks, including small island developing States.
The purpose of the evaluation is to strengthen UNDP accountability to global and national development partners, including the UNDP Executive Board and to support organizational learning and improved aid delivery.
The objectives of the evaluation are to:
In support of this work, the IEO requires the services of a suitable expert to complete a review and synthesis of the evidence about priorities for developing resilience to natural hazards and climate change, and practical implications for UNDP.
