Final evaluation of the Gender programme (phases 1 and 2) (2020-2021)
The objective of this mission is to provide the stakeholders (EU, Central African Republic, Member States of the Bêkou Fund, the Ministry for the Promotion of Women, Family and Child Protection [MPFFPE], implementing partners, Central African civil society and final beneficiaries) with an overall analysis of the programme’s performance, lessons learned and related conclusions and recommendations.
One of the evaluation’s specific objectives is to help formulate subsequent action on gender to consolidate the achievements and ensure that they last. The analysis therefore focuses on explaining the performance of the action, and its decisive and constricting factors, and should enable forward-looking recommendations to be identified for all stakeholders.
The statement of lessons learned and good practices should act as a basis for the planning of the EU’s future actions and interventions.

Technical assistance for the coordination of EU-funded interventions in Borno State (2018-2022)
The overarching objective of the programme is to contribute to resilient and sustainable peace in the State of Borno, in line with the Nigerian government’s strategy as laid out in the Buhari Plan of June 2016.
This programme foresees the recruitment of a Technical Assistance Team to improve the coordination of EU-funded actions in Borno State and enhance the capacity of the Triple R Ministry of Borno State in its day-to-day activities and in its relations with the development/humanitarian community in the State. Specific attention will be placed on the transition from short-term relief aid to long term development.
Generally speaking, this TAT will aim to: a) act as a facilitator with major stakeholders such as the EU Delegation in Abuja and ongoing EU-funded programmes in the State, and b) reinforce the capacity of the Triple R Ministry. This TAT will further develop ties with ongoing EU programmes, especially the 9 EU-funded resilience programmes launched in January 2018. Other relevant interventions by development partners will also come into consideration.
The TAT will work in close coordination with the Programme Steering Committee, which will oversee strategic matters, and the Technical Implementation Committee which will focus on coordination and technical issues.

Technical Assistance to the ECOWAS Commission for the Study on the Abidjan-Lagos Corridor Highway (2020-2022)
The 1,028-km six-lane homogeneous Highway from Abidjan to Lagos is a major Transport Infrastructure Project for Western Africa. The ECOWAS Commission ensures the implementation of the technical studies and related activities. These large-scale engineering studies, coupled with the development of a construction strategy and motorway operating procedures through PPP, are complex services to handle by contracting authorities and involve significant budgets. Furthermore, three Design and Engineering (D&E) firms are contracted to carry out the technical studies, dividing the corridor into three lots and requiring strong supervision to ensure effective coordination of the studies. Therefore, the aim of the Technical Assistance (TA) Services is to: (i) support the PIU with the diverse nature of studies being pursued under the Programme, (ii) serve as an interface with all stakeholders, (iii) support ECOWAS in anticipating urgent actions, and (iv) take the necessary decisions regarding technical, legal and financial expertise to allow ECOWAS and the authorised agencies of Member States to effectively manage all phases of each service component provided for in the study.
