Technical assistance and project management assistance to the project owner

More and more frequently, development projects and sector-based policies require an "a la carte" mobilization of qualified experts.
Oréade-Brèche is able to provide development stakeholders and actors with not only internal human resources but also an international network of consultants in the fields of rural development, the forest and the environment.
The activities which these experts can carry out consist of: capacity strengthening, institutional support, technical advice, training, etc.

Framework contract for the provision of support for monitoring of LIFE projects, the communication about the LIFE programme, the performance monitoring and evaluation of European environmental NGOs

Client(s) : EASME - 2019 - 2023
The LIFE program of the European Union finances projects for the protection of the environment and climate for the period 2014 - 2023 in the 28 Member States. Through the NEEMO consortium, Oréade-Brèche provides technical assistance to EASME for the implementation of this program, in particular for projects monitoring and evaluation.
The LIFE program has three main objectives:
- preserving the environment and act for the climate,
- improving European environmental policies, their implementation and their integration into other policies,
- improving environmental and climate governance at all levels.

The projects monitored and evaluated by the Oréade-Brèche experts fit more precisely into the following themes:
1. Mitigation and adaptation to climate change: agriculture and forestry (greenhouse gas emission reduction plans and management of carbon sinks, adaptation techniques, pastoralism, etc.), industries (chemicals, iron and steel, automotive, aeronautics, construction, etc.), tourism, etc.
2. Energy: sobriety, energy efficiency, renewable energies (anaerobic digestion, gasification, photovoltaics, etc.),
3. Protection of nature and biodiversity: implementation of the Natura 2000 network, agricultural practices & biodiversity, forest management & biodiversity, marine environments, restoration of habitats, protection of animal and plant species (reinforcement, reintroduction of populations), land control, etc.
4. Protection of the environment and control of resources:
- Urban environment: transport, climate plans, urban resilience (eco-housing, urban agriculture, etc.), protection of biodiversity (bees,etc.), rural and urban planning, light and sound pollution, etc.,
- Water: water treatment (reduction of pollution like pesticides, endocrine disruptors, nitrates, etc.), resource management (watersheds),
- Waste: reduction, improvement of collection, sorting (plastic waste, building waste, etc.), recovery (reuse, recycling, energy recovery), circular economy,
- Air: fight against air pollution, measures and monitoring of air quality, etc.,
- Soils: fight against soil pollution, erosion, etc.
The objective of the Environmental NGO Support Program was to support activities that contribute to the development and implementation of EU environmental policy and legislation in different European regions. It also aimed at strengthening small regional and local associations working on the implementation of the intra Community acquisitions on environment and sustainable development.

The technical assistance aimed to:
- ensure regular contact between the European Commission and the project leaders (beneficiaries);
- provide technical, administrative and financial assistance to project promoters;
- evaluate the reports and documents sent by the beneficiaries;
- organize regular visits of the projects;
- participate in the resolution of the problems encountered;
- Promote feedback from projects especially to improve policies and their implementation and the potential for replication of projects, through monitoring and evaluation, the organization of seminars, thematic studies, etc.
- carry out ex-post evaluations of projects at the request of the European Commission;
- Contribute to improving the visibility of the LIFE program (information day, monitoring missions ...).
The follow-up of environmental NGOs was based on the following tasks:
- Methodological support (method of selection of audited NGOs, audit method ...);
- conducting surveys and on-site audits;
- random control of NGO reports;
- writing audit reports.
