Integrated Land and Water Management for Adaptation to Climate Variability and Change – Results and Impacts Evaluation Assignment
Danish Government granted funding of US$10.92 million to finance climate change mitigation activities in sub-Saharan Africa. Through the regional Competitive Agricultural Research Grant Scheme (CARGS) of the World Bank, the Danish Government allocated US$ 4,873,500 to CORAF/WECARD to finance climate change related projects in West Africa. The development objective of the ILWAC-TF was ‘to improve the ability of African users of agricultural land and water resources to plan and manage climate change adaptation measures’. This grant provided the opportunity for CORAF/WECARD to initiate and launch seven projects on climate change in 2012. Within the framework of the ILWAC-TF projects, a large range of activities were implemented 15 countries: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Cote d’Ivoire, The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, and Togo. The objective of this consultancy is to support the ILWAC-Trust Fund coordination team in the evaluation of the results and impacts of various climate change-related activities, which were implemented in West Africa. This evaluation aims to assess the results and impacts of ILWAC-TF-funded activities, identify key lessons learnt, and document best climate-resilient practices for scaling up.
