Duties and Responsibilities


The project under evaluation was funded by the Forum for East Asia-Latin America Cooperation (FEALAC). It was implemented by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) (lead agency) and Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) from 2018 to 2020. The project’s objective was to “enhance the integration of FEALAC countries into intraregional and bi-regional value chains.”


This assessment is an end-of-cycle review of a project aimed at enhancing the integration of FEALAC countries into intraregional and bi-regional value chains.

The objective of this assessment is to review the efficiency, effectiveness, relevance, and sustainability of the project implementation and more particularly document the results the project attained in relation to its overall objectives and expected results as defined in the project document.

The assessment will place an important emphasis in identifying lessons learned and good practices that derive from the implementation of the project, its sustainability and the potential of replicating them to other countries.

The lessons learned and good practices in actual project implementation will in turn be used as tools for the future planning and implementation of projects.


The evaluation will seek to be independent, credible and useful and adhere to the highest possible professional standards. It will be consultative and engage the participation of a broad range of stakeholders. The unit of analysis is the project itself, including its design, implementation and effects. The assessment will be undertaken in accordance with the provisions contained in the Project Document. The evaluation will be conducted in line with the norms, standards and ethical principles of the United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG) .

It is expected that ECLAC’s guiding principles to the evaluation process are applied . In particular, special consideration will be taken to assess the extent to which ECLAC’s activities and outputs respected and promoted human rights . This includes a consideration of whether ECLAC interventions treated beneficiaries as equals, safeguarded and promoted the rights of minorities, and helped to empower civil society.

The evaluation will also examine the extent to which gender concerns were incorporated into the project – whether project design and implementation incorporated the needs and priorities of women, whether women were treated as equal players, and whether it served to promote women’s empowerment.

Other concerns to be integrated into the evaluations are disability inclusion, and environmental issues.

Moreover, the evaluation process itself, including the design, data collection, and dissemination of the assessment report, will be carried out in alignment with these principles .

The evaluation will also include an assessment of the project´s contribution to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


The assessment will use the following data collection methods to assess the impact of the work of the project:

a) Desk review and secondary data collection analysis

b) Self-administered surveys

c) Semi-structured interviews and focus groups

Methodological triangulation is an underlying principle of the approach chosen. Suitable frameworks for analysis and evaluation are to be elaborated – based on the questions to be answered. The experts will identify and set out the methods and frameworks as part of the inception report.


The consultant is obliged to cede to ECLAC all authors rights, patents and any other intellectual property rights for all the work, reports, final products and materials resulting from the design and implementation of this consultancy, in the cases where these rights are applicable. The consultant will not be allowed to use, nor provide or disseminate part of these products and reports or its total to third parties without previously obtaining a written permission from ECLAC.
