The Monitoring, Evaluation, and Gender Expert will provide overall support to the project. In the project inception phase, his/her work will inform the logical framework and development of the activities. Afterwards, he/she will provide a punctual support as needed to the overall project.

The Monitoring, Evaluation, and Gender expert will have two main objectives:

  1. Monitoring and Evaluation expertise: Assure the implementation of a sound and efficient monitoring and evaluation system, including baseline study, and provide ongoing support as needed (for example, for mid-term and final evaluations)
  2. Gender expertise: Review Expertise France’s overall intervention and provide recommendations to achieve a better impact for women and all people marginalised due to gender.

Within the domain of gender expertise, Expertise France seeks an expert who can contribute significantly to the specific activity A.2.4 - Development of support activities to strengthen local structures providing livelihood assistance to Informal Waste Workers (IWW) in pilot areas.

The waste management sector employs nearly 20 million workers worldwide, with the majority operating informally. Informal waste management workers (IWW) play a crucial role in waste management but face significant challenges, often including gender-based social inequality.

The project will develop a targeted approach to support these entrepreneurs and Micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) within selected Local Government Units (LGUs) for Public-Private Partnership (PPP) pilot projects and green procurement application. The goal is to strengthen cooperatives, NGOs, and CSOs supporting informal waste workers in intervention areas, contributing to quality of life improvements and long-term sustainability. Activity A.2.4, thus, falls within a “do no harm approach”, in support of Expertise France’s planned activities to reinforce 4 – 5 green infrastructure projects in waste management.


The expert should work closely with the Expertise France project team based in Manila. He/she will report directly to the Project Deputy, who reports to the Project Lead. The expert will also work closely with the M&E Officer, Output 2 Technical Lead and PPP Expert, Grants Officer(s), and other members of the team, employing a collaborative approach.

The expert will have a particular capacity-building role towards the M&E Officer, who will be responsible for data capture and ongoing monitoring.

Additional support for the mission will be provided by Expertise France’s headquarters. The expert may be requested to participate in meetings between the project team and support team from headquarters.

Finally, the expert will collaborate with other International Development Agencies responsible for implementing the EU-PH Partnership for Green Economy Programme, particularly with GGGI, as well as with the project beneficiaries in the Philippines, within both the public and private sectors.

Expertise France will provide the preliminary elements of the project work, including the Description of Action, formats and examples of key EF documents (such as prior Calls for projects), and key contacts. EF will monitor the execution of the work ensuring alignment with the overall project.

Date and location

The expertise mission is a long-term engagement with punctual, specific missions.

The expert will contribute towards the overall project architecture and logical framework during the project inception phase, from March to June 2024.

Once pilot areas have been identified for PPP and PP projects, the expert will accompany Expertise France’s team through local diagnostics and conception of subsequent programming. A “do no harm” methodology will be applied.

The consulting mission will thus include a mix of in-person and remote activities. Missions within the Philippines will be confirmed between the expert and the Manila-based EF team based on the evolving needs of the project. All travel will be arranged by Expertise France and the consultant will receive a per diem based on EU rates.
