This Statement of Work (SOW) is for a suitably qualified person to work as an advisor/consultant with the South Africa Department of Forestry, Fisheries, and Environment (DFFE) and IDG. The successful candidate is expected to spend forty (40) hours per week for up to thirty-six (36) months working within DFFE as a System Administrator M&E.

The selected candidate will be required to report monthly to IDG on progress toward the Key Performance Areas detailed within this SOW.


The U.S. Government (USG), through USAID/SA, has partnered with the South African Government, through DFFE, to support Low Emissions Development (LED) or green growth. These efforts are part of a broader USG initiative called Enhanced Capacity for Low Emissions Development (EC-LEDS) which supports developing countries' efforts to pursue long-term, transformative development and accelerate sustainable, climate-resilient economic growth while slowing the growth of greenhouse gas emissions. The initiative builds capacities in partner countries, provides targeted technical assistance and builds a shared global knowledge base on LEDS. This support is country-driven, creating and implementing local LEDs assistance tailored to each country's unique capacity, technical, analytical, and policy needs. The USG's commitment to partnering with the South African Government (SAG) on Low Emissions Development was formalized in an agreement with the South African National Treasury in December 2011. While the support program works across economic sectors and Ministries, the DFFE is the lead coordinating Ministry. USAID/SA engaged IDG to implement the SA-LED project.

Job Objective/Purpose:

Design, develop, maintain, provide guidance and continuously improve Climate Change Monitoring and Evaluation databases and systems and report climate change information in respect of the department's national and international reporting obligations as captured in domestic climate change policies and conventions.

The expectation is that this length will run from date of hiring (estimated start date of 1 September 2021, to the end of the IDG-USAID contract, minus a month for IDG to "wrap up" the contract with USAID i.e. Approximately 30 June 2024.


The candidate will report directly to the Chief Director: Climate Change Monitoring and Evaluation Change Information, and coordinate with IDG.


The selected candidate will be stationed physically in the DFFE offices in Pretoria, South Africa, and will be expected to travel throughout South Africa as needed to work with National, Provincial and Local Government and relevant stakeholders.
