Short Term Consultant (STC): Strategic Country Cluster Evaluation - Geospatial Analysis

The Independent Evaluation Office of the Global Environment Facility is requesting Expressions of Interest from individual consultants to conduct remote sensing and geospatial analysis for ‘Strategic Country Cluster Evaluation’.

Strategic Country Cluster Evaluation
The GEF is moving towards integrated programming as a strategy to address underlying drivers of environmental degradation and achieve impact at scale. This often involves dealing with issues beyond national boundaries. The way it is operationalized at the country level is the critical area of inquiry. This evaluation builds upon IEO’s long experience with the country portfolio evaluations, Strategic Country Cluster Evaluation’s (SCCE) focus on a select number of common themes across the cluster of countries and/or portfolios, with the intent to deep dive in those common thematic areas and unpack them through purposive evaluation inquiry. As their predecessor country level evaluations, SCCE’s will use the same conceptual analysis framework to be able to compare findings across the geographic regions and /or portfolios. Geospatial analysis and field verifications will be among the main SCCE evaluation components.

The SCCE evaluation covers three thematic country clusters 1) The Sahel and Sudan-Guinea Savanna ecoregions, 2) The Small island developing nations, and 3) the Least developing countries.

Qualifications
The GEF IEO invites experts with experience in remote sensing and geospatial analysis in the area of environment and development to express their interest.

 

The candidate should have the following qualifications and skill sets:

 

  1. A Master’s or higher degree in computer, geospatial science, environmental or natural resource management or other technically related fields with good knowledge of advance digital image processing, GIS and remote sensing technology and its application for environmental project evaluation.
  2. A minimum of 7 years of experience in the use of remote sensing and Geospatial technology. Use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) in both desktop and cloud based enterprise GIS platforms such as such as ArcGIS suite, MapInfo.

  4. Expertise in Geocoding project locations.
  5. Expertise in remote sensing data processing workflow and batch processing global remote sensing data and performing geospatial analysis.
