The SWITCH to Green Facility works with EU Delegations and to DEVCO HQs Units to better program, design, deliver and monitor/evaluate actions contributing to the circular – and more broadly the green – economy transition in EU partner countries. Experts support EU actions through on-demand provision of short-term expertise – including with direct support offered to EU partners at country level – and through regular reviews of action or other related documents. Missions can also inform policy processes to facilitate policy dialogue and development at country level.

From Action Identification to Evaluation

Prioritising the circular (and more broadly the green) еconomy in the programming and action design process is fundamental to the SWITCH to Green Facility’s mandate. Relevant tailor-made services are provided in this regard.

Programme and project design and implementation

The SWITCH to Green Facility contributes to the identification, formulation and delivery of EU supported actions related with the green/circular economy through both on-demand provision of short-term expertise and regular reviews of Action Documents and other programme-related documents.

Short-term missions may indicatively include consultations with local stakeholders, mapping and analysis of relevant actions and/or policies in the target country/region, drafting of programme documents (including assistance in the quality review process – QRG), technical backstopping to programme/project management and implementation (e.g. review of deliverables, co-organisation of meetings), and direct support to EU partners at country level.
