Scope of Work

1.1 Development of a concrete and detailed work plan with a schedule of activities, delivery and presentation of products. The work plan must incorporate the methodology that will be used to develop the consultancy, which is described below and also in Annex 2, and will have the contributions and review of MINEM as well as the approval by MINAM.

1.2 Review, analysis and update of the consistency of the product indicators and adaptation measures and enabling conditions in the thematic area of ​​Water, in its component of energy use. This item requires the review of each of the products and the adaptation measures and enabling conditions required for their implementation.

(a) In this activity, the relevant actors that will provide inputs to update the enabling conditions will be defined:

  • MINEM departments and technical dependencies
  • Relevant departments and other instances of MINAM
  • Other actors

(b) The analysis of the products, measures (tasks and actors involved), as well as the enabling conditions will incorporate both the recommendations of the MINEM as well as the DACCD-MINAM, and other actors; and will incorporate relevant aspects of gender, interculturality as well as intergenerational considerations where appropriate.

At the indicator level, the following aspects should be used as main axes:

  • Pertinent: Consider that both the subject and the attributes of the indicator are understandable and that common concepts are handled.
  • Relevance: That the indicator is relevant according to the concept note raised by the sector. You should review the logic of the concept note and evaluate if what the indicator measures contributes to the desired result.
  • Targeting: It will be evaluated if the indicator is clear on the scope in which the measurement will be carried out and if it is duly delimited.
  • Responsible: It will be evaluated if it is specified who will be the body in charge of carrying out the measurement, not only at the Ministry level but also at the General Directorate level and even bodies assigned to the sector. The recommendations for the enabling conditions must be aligned with the competences, functions, as well as the public policy instruments and intervention mechanisms of each actor.

(c) As part of this process, a matrix will also be generated where information requirements (enabling conditions) are identified for the implementation of adaptation measures.

(b) Likewise, it will make sure to maintain the orientation provided by the Institutional Planning Guide (CEPLAN[1]) that is currently on the file.

(c) Relevant primary and secondary information available in the public and private sectors will be used in the update with the logic indicated in the sheet (Annex 1).

(d) The indicator sheet will be updated with information established by the baseline. The update must have the contributions and validation of the actors defined in Activity 1.2 (a). Likewise, the update must include the competencies and functions, relevant public policy instruments, and intervention and financing mechanisms.

(e) The data and information in the file will be subsequently linked to the Monitoring and Evaluation System. The DACCD Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist will ensure the consistency of the information produced.

 

1.4 Review and improve the integration of cross-cutting approaches in adaptation NDCs, (gender, intergenerational and intercultural) by product and adaptation measure:

The consultant will evaluate the integration of transversal approaches of the products and adaptation measures corresponding to Water (energy use) and, if deemed appropriate, will propose the guidelines for said integration. Transversal approaches should be emphasized not only in those indicators where their subject is directly linked to the population, but also deepen in which aspects the gender perspective and the intercultural approach can be considered to enrich the implementation process.

(a) Review of public policy instruments. As background, the consultant / company will review:

  • The Action Plan on Gender and Climate Change
  • The intercultural aspects included in the Regulation of the Climate Change Law

(b) Socialization meetings / workshops will be held to explain the task entrusted and receive contributions from relevant specialists from the Ministry of Women and Vulnerable Populations (MIMP) and the Ministry of Culture (MINCUL) and the Ministry of Education (MINEDU).

1.5 Identification of roles and responsibilities in the implementation of adaptation measures and for their monitoring and evaluation

(a) Based on the previous products, the company consultant will prepare a matrix with the identification of roles and responsibilities in the implementation of adaptation measures in water for energy use. This matrix will have the following elements:

  • Responsibilities of the institution involved for monitoring indicators at the institutional level at the three levels of government (national, regional, local).
  • A SWOT matrix that identifies the sector's strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for the proper registration, monitoring, and evaluation process of the implementation of the enabling conditions of the measures (FO, DO, FA, DA), and of the indicators of adaptation measures.
  • Important information from relevant ministries of potential information systems and reporting mechanisms for their articulation with the monitoring and evaluation platform. Also including information on the investment report and financing of the measures.
  • Information on the roles and responsibilities of the private sector (in consultation with MINEM to include relevant actors in the SWOT matrix).
