Project description and object of the evaluation
Subject to this evaluation is the bilateral project “Policy Advice on Environment and Climate Change (PAKLIM)” (PN 2015.2117.8) with an overall term starting from 13.01.2017 to 31.03.2020 and an overall value of EUR 3 Mio. The project objective is the following: Climate policy relevant ministries and subnational authorities of the Indonesian government have coordinated key policy instruments to implement Indonesia's climate goals.
In the priority area "environment", the importance of a coherent, low-carbon climate policy is assessed as an important basis for (i) a sustainable reduction of CO2 emissions, (ii) climate protection and in particular the implementation of the Paris Agreement ratified by Indonesia in 2016, and (iii) an important basis for improving living conditions in Indonesia. The TC module contributes to this by advising ministries of the Indonesian government and provinces to better coordinate their policy instruments in terms of a coherent, low-carbon climate policy. In particular, industry and administrations in Indonesia are supported in sustainably reducing climate-relevant emissions.
The project aims to strengthen Indonesian climate policy through participatory processes and coordination in the relevant sectors. Above all, the project provides support to harmonise and embed the NDC goals (Nationally Determined Contribution) in planning and decision-making processes (above all in the national medium-term development plan RPJMN 2020-2024). By advising the RAN-GRK Secretariat (Secretariat of the National Action Plan to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions), in cooperation with the sector ministries (Ministries of Energy, Industry, Transport, Environment and Forestry, etc.), the preconditions are created for, on the one hand, regularly recording, evaluating and reporting on the implementation of the measures (MRV - Measurement, Reporting and Verification of the National Action Plan) and, on the other hand, continuously improving them (more ambitious targets). Moreover, the project also addresses potential for scaling-up. This helps to establish framework conditions for a reduction in emissions.
The German contribution to the revision of Presidential Decree 61/2011, which regulates the implementation of the National Action Plan (RAN/RAD-GRK) for the development of a Low Carbon Development Planning (LCDP), supports the efforts of the Indonesian government to shift to sustainable development patterns. The LCDP strategy is seen as an important approach to integrating climate change into development plans (RPJMN/D 2020-2024). It aims to reconcile economic growth, poverty reduction, social stability, environmental quality, ecosystems, biodiversity and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Strengthening the development of national climate-relevant financing and fiscal policy instruments is done in coherence with the LCDP strategy.
According to the Terms of Reference of the tender transaction No. 81219297, the following deliverables need to be submitted by the evaluation team to GIZ.
- an inception report of no longer than 20 pages in the specified format with an attached evaluation matrix in draft form;
- a PowerPoint presentation in the specified format for debriefing purposes after the evaluation mission;
- a final report of 30-40 pages (without attachments) in the specified format, with a completed evaluation matrix attached.
- a seven-page executive summary in the specified format; 6
- a one-page document in the specified format containing the core messages of the evaluation
In order to fulfill the high methodological standards for the central project evaluations, the GIZ evaluation unit will check the accuracy and methodological quality of the inception report and the evaluation report using a report quality assessment table (see Annex 03). The reports need to achieve a minimum of 60 % before approval. Besides the strong interest in the quality of technical content and applied methods, GIZ corporate evaluation unit strives to ensure the linguistic quality of the evaluations. In line with GIZ’s Report Writing Guidelines (see Annex 05), reports have to be written in clearly comprehensible language and have to be spellchecked. When citing and labelling diagrams and tables, the relevant guidelines must be observed.
