Introduction :

The responsibility for independent evaluation at the African Development Bank Group (AfDB or the Bank) rests with the Independent Development Evaluation department (BDEV or IDEV). The department’s overarching mission is to enhance the development effectiveness of the Bank’s interventions. It does so through supporting both learning and accountability, as well as promoting a culture of evaluation within the Bank and its Regional Member Countries.

The evaluation of the African Development Bank’s Integrated Safeguards System (ISS), covering Environmental and Social Safeguards (ESS) issues, is part of IDEV’s work program 2016-2018. The evaluation started with an assessment of the extent of compliance with the Bank’s ESS at project level within the Evaluation of Quality Assurance across the Project Cycle (finished in October 2018). The current evaluation will build upon this project-level analysis to examine how related policies, strategies and processes are implemented across the Bank, among other higher-level issues to be determined in the inception report.

BDEV hereby invites individual consultants specialized in the Environmental and Social Management of financial intermediaries – with extensive expertise in environmental and social safeguards systems in the framework of Multilateral Development Banks, – to indicate their interest in the following assignment: support to the evaluation of the African Development Bank’s Integrated Safeguards System (ISS). The main tasks will involve :

  1. Contributing to finalize the evaluation inception report ;
  2. Conducting an in-depth analysis of the ISS compliance of category 4 operations (financial intermediaries lending) ;
  3. Providing inputs to the overall evaluation report coordinated by the BDEV Task Manager ;
  4. Objectives of the Assignment.

The overall objective of the assignment is to provide support to the evaluation of the African Development Bank’s Integrated Safeguards System (ISS).
