Call for Proposals: Informing Reinvestment in the Biodiversity Hotspots
The Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) is a joint initiative of l'Agence Française de Développement, Conservation International (CI), the European Union, the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the Government of Japan and the World Bank. CEPF is a global program that provides grants to civil society to safeguard the world’s biodiversity hotspots.
The CEPF Secretariat intends to conduct an evaluation of the regional implementation teams (RIT) of the Eastern Afromontane, Indo-Burma and Wallacea biodiversity hotspots to inform reinvestment. Interested consultants or firms should submit a proposal by September 30, 2019.
Proposals shall be submitted in one volume, in English, and consist of Technical Proposal and Financial Proposal.
The evaluation will look closely at the components and functions of the Eastern Afromontane, Indo-Burma and Wallacea RITs and evaluate the performance of each RIT against the criteria of relevance, efficiency and effectiveness. Lessons learned from the CEPF grants portfolio with regard to the RIT role will be compiled and reviewed in the context of coverage, impact, accessibility, and adaptive management.
