The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, through its project “Supporting sustainability aspects in the implementation of EU Economic Partnership Agreements”, commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), cordially invites interested and qualified consulting firms to send in a proposal:

For a comprehensive analysis of civil society’s perspectives on the Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA) EPA and support to capacity development of CSOS.

Following the signature of the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) between six SADC Member States on the one hand, and the European Union (EU) on the other and its provisional application since October 2016, GIZ commenced a global project operating under the title “Supporting sustainability aspects in the implementation of EU Economic Partnership Agreements (NEW)”. The overall objective of the project is to foster EPA implementation by regional organisations, their member states, the private sector and civil society in a way that supports sustainable development. Its geographical focus is on Southern Africa (SADC EPA), Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA) and the Caribbean (CARIFORUM EPA). 

The objective of this initiative is to develop the capacity of the civil society in five ESA EPA countries (Comoros, Mauritius, Madagascar, Seychelles and Zimbabwe) to be able to play a more effective advocacy role in the sustainable implementation and monitoring of the ESA EPA.  This will be done through awareness raising webinars and a comprehensive analysis of the perspectives of civil society actors from these countries on the ESA EPA and its impact on social, ecological and economic development. The analysis is aimed at contributing to the development of a well-informed civil society that can meaningfully engage with policymakers and regional organisations on matters related to potentials and risks of the ESA EPA to sustainable development.
