The GEF is recognized as a strong supporter of Conservation Trust Funds (CTF). The GEF completed an evaluation of its experience with CTF in 1999. This evaluation assessed the experience of 13 funds. Following this evaluation, the GEF developed an internal document, the “GEF finance for biodiversity conservation trust funds, a checklist”, aiming to provide clarification on the standard practices on the use of GEF finance for CTF. In 2008, the GEF undertook, with other partners, a Rapid Assessment on CTFs, including the GEF financed ones.
Today, the GEF is supporting more than 44 Conservation Trust Funds over the world. Considering the substantial number of projects, the long-standing experience and the different approaches supported; the capitalization of GEF experience will help to define its positioning in the coming years and to further develop strategy in the CTF development among the donor community.
The study aims to:
(i) develop a database compiling relevant information on each of the CTFs that have been financed and supported by the GEF to date
(ii) based on this database, provide a statistical analysis on the GEF experience on CTFs.
The required profile is: post graduate degree in Environmental Sciences; professional with 5 years of proven experience in database development and analysis in Environmental field; ability to collect and aggregate comments from the interviews and from the GEF secretariat to the delivered products; and experience on Conservation Trust Fund is an asset.
Consultant interested in the project should send a technical and financial proposal, with CV attached, to Charlotte Gobin at the following address firstname.lastname@example.org, before April 15, 2013. For detailed information, check the complete ToRs.
