Study on the EU support provided at regional and bilateral level in the field of climate change in the Neighbourhood South countries (2012-2018)
The global objective of the assignment is to assess the EU support at regional level, bilateral level and through the blending mechanism (the NIF) to the partner countries of the Neighbourhood South in the field of climate change adaptation and mitigation over the period 2012-2018, and to propose recommendations for further EU support for the forthcoming programming period 2019-2022.
In addition, experts are required to consider whether the EU in the region is on track with its objective to allocate 20% of its budget 2014-2020 to climate-related action using Rio Markers – which are part of the OECD-DAC reporting procedures - to measure progress. For the actions on climate change mitigation, GHGs emissions reduction will be calculated. An overall performance analysis will be carried out for both actions on climate change mitigation and adaptation, with particular focus on the latter.
Specific objectives and tasks
- To carry out a quality control of the application of Rio Markers to completed and ongoing regional and bilateral EU-funded projects on climate change in the Neighbourhood South countries during the 2014-2018 period.
- To assess the performance of completed and ongoing EU-funded projects contributing significantly or mainly to climate change mitigation and adaptation (with particular focus on the latter) in the Neighbourhood South countries during the 2012-2018 period, and to draw lessons for the design of future projects.
- To calculate the overall GHGs emissions reduction for actions marked as contributing significantly or mainly to climate change mitigation in the Neighbourhood South countries during the 2014-2018 period.
- To draw conclusions and formulate recommendations for the future.
Location visits: Belgium, Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia.
