Gender mainstreaming in the development of urban street lighting projects

Under the Covenant of Mayors for Sub-Saharan Africa (CoM SSA) initiative, the French Agency for Development (AFD) has launched a call for Expression of Interest to select candidates interested in the elaboration of a study on gender mainstreaming in the development of urban street lighting projects.

The study aims at analyzing to which extent urban public lighting projects which would be developed in the frame of CoM SSA may reduce the feeling of insecurity through better consideration of the needs of women and men in the urban public space.

Applications will be selected according to the following criteria:

  • Experience on projects related to gender mainstreaming in developing countries: 35%  (experience of a project in sub-Saharan Africa is an asset)
  • Professional experience implementing projects related to urban public lighting in developing countries, covering the choice of lighting technologies and planning: 30% (experience of a project in sub-Saharan Africa is an asset)
  • Experience producing recommendations as well as tools and methodologies for taking gender into account (participatory approaches, M&E frameworks, tender documents, TOR, etc.): 25%
  • Experience with projects funded by the EU and/or other donors (AFD, WB, etc.): 10%

Deadline for submission of interest, in French or English: 10/07/2020 at 12h00 (CET)
