UNOPS is recruiting for the position of Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Advisor on behalf of its partner, the United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment).

The United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system, and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment.

The Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Advisor is responsible for designing a performance monitoring and evaluation framework to track the Project’s progress towards achieving its targets, including gender responsiveness of Project implementation. Working closely with the Chief Technical Advisor and the Project Manager in the PMU, under the oversight of the UNEP Task Manager, the M&E Advisor will be responsible for continuously monitoring progress during Project implementation as outlined in the monitoring and evaluation framework.

This will be achieved by i) measuring the indicators to assess the progress of the Project; ii) reporting the Project’s performance to the PSC and PMU based on inputs from EEs. At key points (i.e., baseline, annual performance reports, mid-point and end of Project) the M&E Advisor will coordinate evidence-gathering exercises to verify this progress together with the PMU. Project targets and results will be triangulated with baseline surveys that will be completed in the Project’s first year.

The M&E Advisor will organise training for staff members of the national Executing Entity (EE) and Technical Partners in data collection and analysis, and on the Project cycle, particularly on effective monitoring and reporting of activities. All training should take a strengths-based approach, both in the training process and in the principles and practices taught. These skills will be reinforced by follow-up training at least annually, to ensure that monitoring activities are collecting meaningful information and that the information is able to be used both for adjusting inputs throughout the implementation phase and for continuous evaluation of progress.

Project Information:

The project “Enhancing Early Warning Systems to build greater resilience to hydro meteorological hazards in Timor-Leste” was approved by the Green Climate Fund Board in October 2021, with a total budget of USD 21.7 million. The United Nations Environment Programme serves as the Accredited Entity for the project. Activities will be executed by the State of Timor-Leste through the Secretary State for the Environment (SSE) and UNEP.

The project will be implemented across five years and aims to deliver transformative impact to the entire population of Timor-Leste, including 1.03 million as direct beneficiaries (80% of the population), directly contributing to the attainment of selected targets and indicators of Article 7 of the Paris Agreement, Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13 on Climate Action, SDG 3 on Good Health and Well-Being and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.

The project will address the urgent need for integrated and end-to-end climate information services and multi-hazard early warning systems (MHEWS) through comprehensive institutional, technical and technological capacity building from national to local level to generate and disseminate robust climate data and information at all stages of the climate services value chain. This will be achieved through four inter-related components – the Project Results:

Result 1. Strengthened delivery model and legislation for climate information and multi-hazard early warning services.

Activity 1.1 Establish institutional and policy frameworks, legislation and delivery models for climate services.

Result 2. Strengthened observations, monitoring, analysis and forecasting of climate and its impacts.

Activity 2.1 Enhance infrastructure and technical support for observations and monitoring.

Activity 2.2 Strengthen climate modelling and impact-based forecasting.

Activity 2.3 Establish climate services for health.

Result 3. Improved dissemination and communication of risk information and early warning.

Activity 3.1 Establish targeted multi-hazard early warning information systems.

Result 4. Enhanced climate risk management capacity.

Activity 4.1 Build capacity to prepare for and respond to climate risks and hazards.

Activity 4.2 Establish Forecast-based Financing (FbF)

Local Context:

Timor-Leste is a Least Developed Country (LDC) and a Small Island Developing State (SIDS) whose infrastructure and governmental systems were devastated by a 25-year war of independence. Timor-Leste is highly vulnerable to both extreme climate and slow-onset events, with very limited capacity to prepare for and recover from climate impacts. As these events increase in frequency and intensity, Timor-Leste needs accurate, timely and actionable information and early warnings on local weather, water, climate and ocean conditions and related risks to human and environmental health.
