MONITORING AND EVALUATION PLAN
1: INTRODUCTION
The Deutshe Gesellschaft fur Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) or Germany International Cooperation is an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations. In its activities GTZ seeks to follow the paradigm of sustainable development which aims at balancing economic development with social inclusion and environmental protection.
It offers consulting and capacity building services in a wide range of areas including management consulting, rural development, sustainable infrastructure, security and peace building, social development, governance and democracy, environment and climate change and economic development and employment. Its corporate objective is to improve people’s living conditions on a sustainable basis.

1.1 Vision
GTZ works to shape a future worth living around the world.
1.2 MissionGTZ manages change, provide knowhow, develops solutions, works as an intermediatory, are value driven, advice policy makers, secure results and are a global player.

2: DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECTClimate Change is a reality, and its effects are manifest. To combat some of the causes such as deforestation, global warming due to Green House Gas emissions, some stakeholders have taken it upon themselves to try and mitigate the effects of climate change. Kenya Climate Innovation Center (KCIC) aims at stimulating, supporting and strengthening green innovations in Kenya in reducing greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming. Human activities have contributed significantly to degradation of the country’s natural resources. The anthropogenic activities of man have severely undermined the sink function of the environment hence threatening the lives of people. Continued deforestation and forest degradation for agriculture and firewood, unsustainable charcoal burning, illegal logging and use of inefficient energy conversion technologies has continuously undermined the efforts of climate change mitigation in Kenya
There is a growing demand for firewood and charcoal compared to the slow rate of afforestation in Taita Taveta County which is eroding the tree cover and impacting negatively on the environment.

Smoke produced by burning firewood is harmful to health especially to women and children who spend most of the time in the kitchen. Most women and children have red eyes because of the unfriendly smoke in the kitchen. GTZ want to reduce this by training the local community on the use of clean energy for cooking and lighting purposes.

GTZ would partner with the county administration to improve health, protect the fragile environment and while at the same time create employment for the youth.

Employment creation, particularly among youth, is one of the top priorities of the Government of Kenya. In addition, Vision 2030 through the Third Medium Term Plan (MTP III), highlights the need for institutional and economic reforms to accelerate growth for job creation, notably in the informal sector. The government is committed to create more new jobs annually to address the pressing problem of youth unemployment.

It is in line with these efforts that the GTZ will seek to promote growth and employment through identification of opportunities in sectors with great employment potential, such as agriculture and agri-business; sustainable housing; sustainable infrastructure; and the manufacturing sector.

These sectors are the backbone of the government’s Big Four agenda and contribute directly to the Vision 2030 goals of creating social-economic transformation, increasing job creation and improving quality of life for all Kenyans.

By aligning it’s support to these efforts, the GTZ’s work within the counties is seeking to improve the social and economic opportunities for youth in all counties.

2.1 Problem to be addressedA research conducted by GTZ reveals that at least 68% of the Taita Taveta county residents use firewood for cooking hence the need for investment in the clean energy. The same research shows that another 23% of the residents use charcoal while less than 10% of the households use solar, paraffin and electricity energy to cook.

The construction of new power saving jikos to be implemented by the county government and GTZ is the way to go as it will significantly reduce smoke emission compared to the current three stone fire.

The frequency of buying firewood can be reduced by as much as 50% while at the same time saving on time which can be used for income generating activities, self skills improvement and attending schools or other chores.

This gesture would save forests, improve health, minimize the use of charcoal and create more jobs to the local youth.
2.2 Project target beneficiariesThe project intends to train 40 youth in each of the 20 electoral wards on how to make power saving jikos using the locally available material and 1200 community members on how to use energy.

2.3 Project target area of coverage
The project is being implemented in Taita Taveta County. The first phase will be implemented at Wusi/Kishamba and Bura wards in Mwatate sub-county, Challa and Mboghonyi wards in Taveta sub-county, Wumingu/Kishushe, Mwanda/Mghange ward in Wundanyi sub-county and sagalla/Marungu in Voi sub-county

8: TERMS OF REFERENCE8.1 Title of Consultancy Assignment
Mid-term evaluation for GTZ Project targeting youth and community members trained on construction and use of power saving jikos.

8.2 Project Background
8.3 Background Information on the Consultancy
ETHICAL AND CHILD PROTECTION CONSIDERATIONS
The consultant must follow Ethical Principles for involving human subjects in a research and obtain written/ verbal consent from the human subjects. Permission from an older person must be sought if children under 18 years are involved as subjects. The consultant must obtain a signed informed consent of each child and his/ her parents after explaining the purpose of the study and its usage.
Individual responses should not be shared to observe confidentiality of data. GTZ has to ensure that no risk or harm is involved in this study.
