Date of publication: 15 November 2017

Date of closing: 15 December 2017 at 16:00 Icelandic time

Malawi and Uganda have been bilateral partner countries in Icelandic development cooperation since, 1989 and 2001 respectively. In 2006 Iceland started district development cooperation with Kalangala district in Uganda based on previous development project cooperation. This was the start of a district approach, focusing on support through district governments to improve livelihoods and provide basic services, which was later adopted more widely by the Icelandic International Development Agency (ICEIDA, which has now merged with MFA Iceland). In 2012 a formal district cooperation programme was started in Mangochi District in Malawi, building on previous development cooperation projects which had been implemented in the district. 

MFA Iceland is now seeking a team of qualified consultants with at least 10 years of experience in evaluations in international development, including vast experience in evaluating projects in Southern and East Africa and knowledge and experience of working in Malawi and/or Uganda, two conduct an external evaluation of the two district development programmes.
