United Nations Global Pulse was established within the Executive Office of the Secretary-General in late 2009 as a UN system-wide innovation project charged with discovering and developing the means to leverage real-time digital information on human wellbeing for more evidence-based and proactive global decision-making. New York serves as the headquarters of Pulse Lab, focusing on foundational research and global partnerships. It also provides a knowledge hub for country-level Pulse Labs (located in Finland, Kampala, and Jakarta), ensuring Labs can build on one another’s innovations.

Global Pulse operates with administrative support provided to its New York headquarters by UNOPS; both Pulse Labs function as UNDP Projects under the technical and strategic guidance of Global Pulse headquarters.

Pulse Lab Kampala (PLK) is developing together with the Ministry of ICT and another stakeholder a use case study of a tourism data exchange platform.

The Tourism sector was identified through meetings with the Government and 4IR Taskforce members as a potential area of data demand within the Uganda ecosystem. In addition, Uganda’s National 4IR Strategy mentions that access to consistent and quality data could have a huge impact on the tourism sector in Uganda, particularly to coordinate with various stakeholders in the industry, informing government investment, and attract new customers.

Engagements for this tourism use case started with a workshop in December 2021, then interviews of both national and global experts on data exchanges, then a stakeholder workshop in March 2022. So far stakeholders engaged include the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC), National IT Authority of Uganda (NITA-U), Private Sector Foundation Uganda (PSFU), Uganda Tourism Board (UTB), Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA), Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS), Airtel Uganda, MTN Uganda, Ministry of Tourism Wildlife and Antiquities (MoTWA), Directorate of Citizenship and Immigration Control (DCIC), Ministry of ICT and National Guidance (MoICT&NG), Makerere University, square, Uganda Institute of Information and Communications Technology (UICT), Pulse Lab Kampala, and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). 

During the engagement with stakeholders, PLK realized the lack of a joint vision and understanding of what data sharing is and why it is important. Hence, PLK initiated a dialogue with PLF to understand if a foresight project could complement the use case study to create a joint vision and to better understand and communicate possibilities and risks with data sharing

PLK and PLF have agreed on conducting a foresight exercise to develop a scenario about the future of tourism data sharing together with stakeholders. With the aim of establishing a joint vision and creating a sense of urgency about why data sharing and data usage is important. 

UNDP will hire an International  Individual Consultant to provide research, analytical and critical support for the development of knowledge products produced as part of UNGP’s work on the data exchange platform

Background:

Indonesia's biodiversity is an important asset for national development. Diversity at the level of genetics, species, and ecosystems provides great benefits in various aspects of life, especially food, health and energy, as well as industrial basic materials, which aim to meet human needs. Based on the results of a study by Bappenas (2012), the contribution of the Indonesian economy to biodiversity and ecosystems reaches no less than IDR 2,053.8 trillion.

As one of the countries with the richest biodiversity in the world, Indonesia plays a major role in supporting efforts to manage biodiversity at the global level by strengthening its commitment to sustainable biodiversity management as the basic capital for national development. In strengthening this commitment at the national level, Indonesia has designed the Indonesia Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (IBSAP) which is an important guide in planning for biodiversity management policies as well as the integration and mainstreaming of these policies in national development plans.

The Government of Indonesia has periodically compiled the IBSAP document since 2003 as a follow-up to the 1993 Indonesia Biodiversity Action Plan (BAPI).

As the 2015-2020 IBSAP implementation period ends, the Government of Indonesia in 2022 is carrying out the formulation of the Post-2020 Biodiversity Management Strategy and Planning Towards Indonesia's 2045 Vision which is formulated in the framework of the Post-2020 IBSAP Document. The formulation of these strategies and action plans will in the process be harmonized with international agreements and other global issues, including the UN-CBD Post 2020 Global Biodiversity Framework, SDGs, climate change issues, the Covid-19 pandemic, and are mainstreamed into the Long-Term Development Plan document (Rencana Pembangunan Jangka Panjang/RPJP) and the Medium-Term Development Plan (Rencana Pembangunan Jangka Menengah/RPJM).

One of the big challenges faced by Indonesia as a mega-biodiversity country is in terms of providing funding needs for ideal biodiversity management amid limited conventional funding sources such as the national state budget (Anggaran dan Pendapatan Belanja Negara/APBN). The existence of support for sustainable biodiversity funding resources is very much needed to overcome the problem of the lack of funding capacity for biodiversity management within the framework of achieving national development targets. Meanwhile, in the long term, the implementation of sustainable funding is urgently needed to increase the effectiveness of biodiversity management and to create alternative funding solutions to reduce dependence on government funding sources. Therefore, optimizing the involvement of the support of funding resources from various stakeholders to actively contribute to ensuring the sustainability of funding for biodiversity management, both inside and outside the conservation area becomes very important.

To provide input for the Government of Indonesia regarding sustainable biodiversity funding policies within the post-2020 framework of conservation of biodiversity, a Funding Resource Mobilization Strategy will be carried out as a supplement to the Post-2020 IBSAP Main Document. In particular, this activity will include the synthesis and formulation of strategies for mobilizing funding from various sources, both government and non-government through a series of coordination carried out in a participatory consultation in-line with the process of compiling the main IBSAP Post-2020 document.

The ‘Skills Development for Employment (SD4E) programme – consolidation phase’ is supporting the Government of Albania in the national VET and Employment reform through a comprehensive approach of institutional capacity building on a macro/policy level, enabling key actors (MFE, NES/NAES and NAVETQ) to deliver coordinated and demand-driven services. Responding to national priorities and the objectives of the National Employment and Skills Strategy, this Swiss funded intervention has the ambition to make a systemic contribution where the Albanian VET system and Employment Service supply the labour market with a skilled workforce that contributes to sustainable and inclusive economic development of the country.

 

To achieve the programme purpose and finally the programme goal, the programme focused its efforts in three strategic fields that aim to improve the governance and quality of service provision in VET and employment promotion in Albania.

 

Outcome 1: The institutional capacity of key actors in VET and Employment (Ministry, NAVETQ, NAES) is strengthened

Outcome 2: The employment service portfolio is based on a balanced demand-and supply-side oriented approach

Outcome 3: A standardized Quality Assurance (QA) framework is in place that improves the image of VET and fosters linkages between school and world of work.

The project, financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Coordination (SDC) is implemented by UNDP in partnership with the Ministry of Finance and Economics, through a participatory and consultative approach of development cooperation, fostering the sustainable development of national capacities. At the core of the intervention is the ambition to strength national key institutions in VET and Employment Promotion, through multilayer capacity building plans, the introduction of multiplier training elements, the collaborative development and roll-out of effective instruments for service delivery and innovative tools for Quality Assurance of day-to-day policy implementation.

 

The SD4E programme aims to support the National Agency for Employment and Skills (NAES) in optimizing its EPPs portfolio and provision, as set out in the objectives of the National Employment and Skills Strategy. The NAES aims to develop and deliver a service portfolio that is based on a balanced demand and supply oriented approach, recognizing and fostering the potential of various groups of job seekers through tailored action plans and mediation measures. 

 

After a thorough review of the Employment Promotion Programmes (EPP) in 2019, in terms of the degree to which they addressed the needs of the client base of NAES and the implementation procedures, in 2020, the SD4E team worked together with the working group of MoFE and NAES to finalize the legal and operational framework for the implementation of the reformed EPP packages. The five programmes proposed and approved by the Council of Ministers in 2020 are:

 

  1. On-the-job Training, which targets jobseekers who do not have any qualifications, and trains them at the workplace, providing a subsidy for the duration of 4 months period for all types of professions, based on an approved training plan, and supervised by a trainer of the employer; (DCM approved)
  2. Wage-subsidy, which is a one-year subsidized employment contract, where the needs of the jobseekers are matched to the profile of the employers, the wage is defined based on the market salary rate, and the duration of the subsidy is defined based on the vulnerabilities of the jobseeker. (DCM approved)
  3. Internship programme, which ensures quick transition to the labour market of the recent graduates, in the same of similar area of study of recent graduates, for a duration of 6 months. (DCM approved)
  4. Self-Employment Programme, which is a start your business programmes that provides financial grant and support for unemployed jobseekers, who have a proven, viable and marketable business idea and plan; (DCM approved)
  5. Community employment, which is a programme with a clear focus on workforce training and is designed to place the work experience offered near the labour market, and in line with the local employment opportunities, implemented in partnership with community and NGO/voluntary organizations. (DCM approved – implementation not started)

 

The SD4E has provided support to NAES to draft all the necessary operational guidelines and forms which will aid the implementation of these programme by the Employment Offices. During the second half of 2020, SD4E supported NAES with the implementation of these programmes.

 

More recently, the SD4E programme has supported the MFE to design new employment promotion programmes which target those who have recently become unemployed due to the COVID-19 crises.

 

This assignment relates to the review of the implementation process and approach of the reformed EPPs portfolio, in close consultation with all the internal implementation structures of NAES, the employers, the jobseekers, and non-public bodies who represent vulnerable groups of unemployed jobseekers. The review is expected to provide evidence-based information that is credible, reliable and useful for the On-the-job training, Wage Subsidy, Internship programmes and the programmes which target the recently laid-off workforce due to COVID-19, namely, DCM nr. 17 and DCM nr. 608.

 

The scope of this evaluation will include an examination of the process, i.e. the way the EPP was implemented and the main focus will be to review operational and implementation issues to answer the following questions: Are the programmes implemented as per the guidelines? And Are there better ways of approaching the implementation issues. The evaluation will try to identify conceptual and operational bottlenecks and weaknesses and make recommendations for improved performance. The process review will also determine whether the EPPs were implemented as designed, assess implementation and suggest amendment.

 

The process evaluation will focus on the following main areas: 1. Eligibility criteria and targeting efficiency for both employers and unemployed jobseekers; 2. Type and level of financing; 3. Information and application procedures 4. Matching and approval procedures; 5. Financing procedures; 6. Monitoring procedures. During the evaluation process, the consultant is expected to conduct desk review, in-depth interviews with the main stakeholders and quick surveys with the beneficiaries of the programmes (employers and jobseekers)

 

In relation to this assignment, under the guidance of the Programme Specialist and the Programme Coordinator, the consultant is expected to carry out the following tasks:

 

  1. Desk-review of the regulatory and operational framework which guides the implementation of the EPPs in Albania: The Decisions of the Council of Ministers, the approved operational guidelines etc.
  2. Draft and present the methodology for conducing the process evaluation, identifying all the relevant stakeholders to be involved and the tools to be used for collecting the necessary information.
  3. Organize meetings and quick surveys with all the relevant stakeholders, including the staff of the employment offices, regional structure of NAES, the relevant department in the headquarters of NAES, employers, jobseekers, organizations that represent vulnerable groups of jobseekers etc.
  4. Draft the initial process evaluation report, which will include the following: methodology, evaluation findings and recommendations.
  5. Present the initial finding to the working group of Ministry of Finance and Economy and the National Agency for Employment and Skills.
  6.  Finalize and submit the report based on the comments received by the relevant institutions.
