The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is an Implementing Agency of the Global Environment Facility (GEF). As such, UNDP supports developing countries in accessing funds from the GEF to finance agreed incremental activities that enhance their efforts to address global environment issues.

To facilitate the identification, allocation and designation of the appropriate expertise for the design, management, and monitoring & evaluation (M&E) requirements of the client countries in their efforts on water and oceans related projects, UNDP-GEF’s Water & Oceans Team is developing a roster of experts that would comprise of vetted capable and qualified individuals who can be called upon and provide specific project design, management or M&E support to the W&O portfolio.  A screening procedure will be applied to select the prospective applicants that will be registered in the UNDP-GEF W&O Vetted Experts Roster. This roster will be maintained for a period of 3 years. Retention in the roster of selected experts will be contingent on continuous delivery of satisfactory services.
