Consultancy Services to undertake an economic valuation and cost benefit analysis of the Benguela Current Large Marine Ecosystem (BCLME)
This consultancy will build on the economic valuation that was undertaken in 2011. Owing to
this, the output from the consultancy is expected to enhance sustainable development in the
BCLME by providing a comprehensive economic analysis to the Parties (countries) for
planning, management and decision making based on the economic value of the marine and
coastal resources of the BCLME region for the maximum socio-economic benefits while
maintaining environmental sustainability.
The economic valuation and cost benefit analysis will also contribute to the process of TDA
and SAP review of the BCC by providing economic data and information. The valuation and
cost benefit analysis will be embedded in the policy appraisal context for the SAP to provide
support for identifying options and alternatives to address the transboundary problems and
contribute to development of sustainable development pathways.

MTE/MTR Consultants to join the GPN vetted roster of experts
To facilitate the timely completion of MTEs for projects financed by the GEF family of funds, GCF and AF, UNDP is developing a roster of experts that would be comprised of vetted capable and qualified individuals who can be called upon as International Consultants (ICs) who would carry out MTEs. A screening procedure will be applied to select the prospective applicants who will be invited to join the ExpRes roster, a consultant procurement and deployment mechanism which maintains pre-vetted consultants on a roster and contracts them quickly for country support via UNDP-GEF Unit’s Results Based Management team. The roster will be maintained for a period of 3 years. Retention in the roster of selected experts will be contingent on continuous delivery of satisfactory services. These MTEs will be managed by the UNDP-GEF Directorate based in New York, in close collaboration with relevant UNDP COs who are responsible for the recruitment of MTE National Consultants and the logistics of MTE missions.
The MTE ICs consultants will assess progress towards the achievement of the selected projects’ objectives and outcomes as specified in Project Documents and assess early signs of project success or failure with the goal of identifying the necessary changes to be made in order to set the project on-track to achieve its intended results. The MTE consultants will also review the project’s strategy and its risks to sustainability.
The current generic call aims to build on UNDP's GPN/ExpRes roster capacity of consultants with relevant experience in Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) to support UNDP Global Environmental Finance (UNDP-GEF) Unit. The Experts Roster for Rapid Response (ExpRes) is a recruitment and deployment mechanism which maintains pre-vetted consultants on a roster and contracts them quickly for country office support.
The GPN/Experts Roster for Rapid Response (ExpRes) provides pre-selected and technically vetted consultants across 21 profiles and 79 sub-profiles to support the work of UNDP Country Offices/units and other UNDP partner agencies.
