TERMS OF REFERENCE
Expression of Interest: Inception Workshop Facilitator
The Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) was launched in 2007 as a result of strong interest of developing countries in REDD, and a clear demand from both industrialized and developing country governments for a mechanism that would help forested countries reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation and conduct demonstration activities to show how REDD could be implemented. The Facility has since become a global partnership of governments, businesses, civil society and indigenous peoples (IPs), with its main focus being laying the ground for future REDD+ activities, and piloting performance-based payment systems.
In this regard, FCPF has competitively selected MPIDO to implement a project aimed at strengthening the knowledge of the targeted forest-dependent indigenous peoples of REDD+ readiness at the National level and the knowledge exchange at the regional level. MPIDO was selected as an implementing organization based on its capacity to implement project activities and its credibility at the regional level to address issues related to forestry, climate change and REDD+. The project is implemented between June 2016 and June 2018 with FCPF funding.
It is in this context, MPIDO seeks a qualified person to serve as a Facilitator for the Program Inception Workshop in Accra, Ghana from the 24th to the 25th September 2016 under the following terms:
1. Availability to travel to Ghana so as to be available on the said dates.
2. Technical expertise and experience in Workshop facilitation at regional and international level with special focus on Indigenous peoples and climate change.

2. Sustainable partnerships and related capacity strengthening requirements for effective engagement of Forest-dependent Indigenous peoples and civil society organizations in the REDD+ process at all levels.
3. Effective training and information sharing with the selected sub-grantees to ensure efficient implementation of the Program activities.
The expected outputs are:
• A well-managed and coherent workshop resulting in the effective delivery of the Workshop expectations.
