Climate & environment assessment: Deauville partnership small and medium-sized enterprise mentoring

Evidence on Demand was requested by DFID to carry out a climate and environmental appraisal for the Deauville Partnership Small and Medium-Sized Enterprise (SME) Mentoring Initiative for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). The initiative, a joint collaboration between DFID and the FCO has two components: (1) 12 months of mentoring support for up to 250 entrepreneurs in the transition countries of Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia, Morocco, Libya and Yemen; and (2) sharing with the transition country governments, knowledge and expertise on best practice national mentoring policy and programming. The consultant completed the draft climate and environmental assessment by identifying high-level climate and environmental impacts/opportunities, confirming the final risk categorisation and drafting a climate and environment assurance note.
