UNDP Baseline Assessment in the Mt. Kenya Region – GEF Small Grants Programme Consultancy Opportunity

Individual Consultant
 
Baseline Assessment in the Mt. Kenya Region – GEF Small Grants Programme (GEF SGP)
 
1. Background and Rationale
 
Over the past 17 years, the GEF has invested substantial financial resources in the development and implementation of the GEF Small Grants Programme, which currently operates in 120 countries. 
At the individual country level, this investment has resulted in extensive portfolios of community based projects yielding positive impacts on local livelihoods, the capacities of local organizations to constructively participate in sustainable development activities, policy dialogue and, ultimately, global environmental benefits. 
SGP results and impacts have grown over the years in many countries thanks to the installed capacity of the SGP Country Programmes. 
These Programmes are managed by a National Coordinator (NC) at the service of a voluntary National Steering Committee (NSC) that is charged with Programme policy and decision making. 
In addition, the UNDP country Office provides managerial support as well as administrative services to the SGP.
