In February 2016, during the COP 19 of the Barcelona Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment and the Coastal Region of the Mediterranean, the Contracting Parties adopted a Regional Action Plan on Sustainable Consumption and Production in the Mediterranean (SCP Action Plan). During the COP 21, held in December 2019, the Contracting Parties requested the Secretariat of the UNEP/MAP – Barcelona Convention to undertake the mid-term evaluation of the SCP Action Plan.
SCP/RAC as MAP Component will lead this evaluation, in coordination with the MAP Coordinating Unit. In order to undertake this evaluation, SCP/RAC needs the support of an international expert, object of this call.
The evaluation of the SCP Action Plan will feed 2 other processes: the mid-term evaluation of the Mediterranean Strategy for Sustainable Development (MSSD) and the preparation of the next MAP Medium-Term Strategy (MTS) 2022-2027.
