Request for Expression of Interest: Draft Thematic Assessments

Liberia as a Party to the Rio Conventions, namely the Convention on Biological Diversity, the Convention on Combating Desertification, and the Framework Convention on Climate Change, is revising its National Capacity Self-Assessment Report to identify the capacity gaps on the implementation of the Conventions since its last assessment in 2006. The Consultant (s) shall support the CCCD Project to review the implementation status for each of the three Rio Conventions at the national level. The Consultant shall further analyze the capacity constraints on their implementation and propose potential opportunities to build the three levels of capacity development at the country level. Liberia has gone through numerous past capacity building projects in which similar issues were raised and plans developed. Therefore, for this NCSA assessment, all the previous information will be used as the baseline and consultations and workshops used to verify and update the information. Additionally, the assessment will report on the actions already taken and untaken to implement the Rio Conventions.
