External review: request for proposals

This ACU is seeking an external evaluation to assess the effectiveness of data collection tools, methodological approaches and existing Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) processes for the LEAP4FNSSA project.

We are launching an exciting opportunity for a researcher or small team of researchers to conduct an evaluation of LEAP4FNSSA monitoring data and impact assessment systems.

The LEAP4FNSSA project was established to foster and accelerate the implementation of the High Level Policy Dialogue (HLPD) Roadmap on FNSSA by transforming the existing Research & Innovation Partnership into a sustainable Platform.

The general objective of the Project is to establish a sustainable platform for the efficient and coherent implementation of the AU-EU Research and Innovation Partnership as described in the Food Nutrition Security and Sustainable Agriculture (FNSSA) Roadmap.

LEAP4FNSSA aims to achieve this overall objective through three specific objectives:

  • Increase the synergies and coherence between actors, research and innovation projects, initiatives and programmes, through the development of institutional alliances and clusters of projects;
  • Develop a learning environment and a large knowledge base, including monitoring and evaluation activities, creating communication and links between different initiatives to improve STI cooperation;
  • Establish a long term and sustainable governance and funding mechanism for the Platform.

This ACU is seeking an external evaluation to assess the effectiveness of data collection tools, methodological approaches and existing Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) delivery processes, to provide recommendations for future data collection within the delivery of the LEAP4FNSSA MEL framework.

  • Applications close: 16 December 2020
  • Duration of final evaluation (including an inception phase): 4 January 2021 – 19 February 2021
