Overview

 

The Government of Nauru is committed to integrating the SDG agenda into national planning processes to support its medium and long term development aspirations. The current National Sustainable Development Strategy (NSDS) 2005-2025 was last updated in 2009 and is now substantially out-of-date. A review of the current NSDS in 2016 by the Ministry of Finance and supported by ADB found that only 15% of the NSDS activities had been implemented, with 85% of the activities yet to be implemented. Also as part of the review, with technical support from ADB, an analysis of the major social, economic, demographic, environmental issues was undertaken to guide the identification of priorities in the formulation of the new NSDS

Based on the review of the current NSDS and overview of major development issues a cabinet decision to do a full revision of the NSDS was made. As a result of the decision to do a full revision of the NSDS, the Government of Nauru has requested support from UNDP to use the 2030 Global Agenda and corresponding SDG framework to strengthen the formulation of the new NSDS and M&E framework. This would entail identifying relevant SDG targets and indicators and possibly tailoring the targets and indicators to better fit the local context and national development goals and aspirations. The targets and indicator should also be able to be monitored on a regular and consistent basis through a consultative process with relevant stakeholders.


Scope of work

The Project will support the Nauruan Government, through the Planning and Aid Division, to develop a new NSDS. The consultant will assist the government, principally through the Planning and Aid Division of the Ministry of Finance, to prepare the NSDS itself. The consultant will work in partnership with existing TA support to the formulation of the new NSDS i.e. ADB and Australian Government.

 

  • NSDS framework and development plan – In partnerships with existing TA from ADB and under the direction of PAD, support the preparation of a detailed work plan to develop the new NSDS which includes: (i) a recommended NSDS strategic framework (including outline document structure, performance frameworks, and other key structural features); (ii) a stakeholder consultation plan; and (iii) a time-bound work plan to prepare the new NSDS including inputs required by the consultant, government officials, and development partners. Produce a Framework and Development Plan for a new NSDS (max. 20 pages plus annexes).
  • Support government to prepare and launch the new NSDS – Based on the above development plan, work closely with the PAD to prepare a new draft NSDS, including helping to coordinate inputs from a range of sources and assisting government to draft content. Support and participate in the stakeholder consultation process. Help government to incorporate feedback from consultations and finalize the new NSDS. Support government to launch the new NSDS, including holding a donor roundtable.
