UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.

The EU and UNDP value dynamic civil society environment, and recognize the important role of the civil society in achieving progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). To support engagement of the civil society in the SDGs implementation, EU and UNDP have launched a new 3-year project “Developing innovation-driven and sustainable civil society in Azerbaijan”. The project is designed as a multi-dimensional response to accelerate the growth of the civil society sector in Azerbaijan through building capacities for policy influence and local development in the selected SDGs related areas including green growth and climate change.
Climate change has emerged as a priority topic for the project given Azerbaijan’s sensitivity to the adverse effects of the climate. Azerbaijan’s economy and communities are increasingly at risk from higher temperatures, unpredictable rainfall, natural disasters and fluctuating sea level. The most vulnerable sectors include agriculture which is a major source of employment, water resources, tourism and coastal infrastructure. Sensitive communities must be aware of the negative impacts of the climate change on their livelihoods, and build resilience and adapt to climate change consequences. Building community awareness and resilience begins with the education of the ‘managers’ of these communities, which are the non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and community-based organisations (CBOs).
For this purpose, the project held a series of interventions to raise awareness of the civil society organizations on climate change and its adverse effects in order to provide them with basic understanding of the basic science behind climate change, linkages between climate change and development and role of the CSOs in climate change response.
To further catalyse the engagement of the CSOs in climate action and empower them to become advocates of strong and decisive climate action, the project is expected to beef up the capacity of CSOs in Azerbaijan to integrate climate change considerations in their work, thus helping enhance the adaptive capacity, strengthen resilience and reduce vulnerability to climate change.
Duties and Responsibilities

Combined Scoring Method
Combined Scoring Method principle considers a combination of the applicants’ qualification and financial proposal (70% technical and 30% financial offer). When using this weighted scoring method, the award of the contract should be made to the consultant whose offer has been evaluated and determined as:
a) Responsive/compliant/acceptable, and
b) Having received the highest score out of a pre-determined set of weighted technical and financial criteria specific to the solicitation.
Out of the maximum score of 100 points, the score for technical criteria equals 70% - maximum 70 points, and for financial criteria 30% - maximum 30 points.
Only the highest ranked candidates who would be found qualified for the job will be considered for the Financial Evaluation.
Evaluation of technical criteria consists of two stages: desk review and interview.
Desk review stage:
I. Academic Qualifications:
II. Years of Experience:
III. Language requirements
To qualify for the interview stage, the candidate shall score at least 46 at the desk review stage. The interview will be conducted through Zoom.
Only candidates obtaining a minimum of 70 points for technical criteria would be considered for the Financial Evaluation.
The offer with the lowest price will receive the maximum of 30 points.
Other offers with higher prices will receive their respective scores according the following formula:
------------------- x 100 x 30%
The contract will be awarded to the candidate that will obtain the highest aggregate score based on the technical and financial evaluation:
Total Scores = Technical Scores x Technical Criteria weight (70%) + Financial Scores x Financial Criteria weight (30%)
Individual Consultants are required to comply with the UN security directives set forth under dss.un.org
