Policy action for climate security in Central Asia project funded by UK Conflict Stability and Security Fund aims to enhance policy action for climate security in Central Asia through supporting more robust and coherent climate change action and increasing public awareness. It targets Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan and will be spearheaded by UNDP Kyrgyzstan, which will work closely with Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.
Countries are at various stages of action to implement the Paris Agreement agenda; Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan ratified the Paris agreement respectively in 2019, 2017 and 2018, and similarly to other Central Asian states have not been active in climate advocacy.
The project will contribute to enhanced climate change policies, to be reflected in the countries’ commitments under the UNFCCC at COP26, which will reduce conflict, promote energy/food and climate security, stability, and resilience to climate change risks. Key outputs of the project will be enhanced technical, political economy and climate risk/ sensitivity analyses and scientific data available to national climate change decision makers; and target countries step up engagement in COP 26 and advocate for more coherent, risk informed climate change policies and increased public awareness and advocacy for locally appropriate, climate change actions.
The project will actively engage national stakeholders and build their capacities in developing research, policy and advocacy field. This will ensure building national knowledge and know-how. The project will also enable a rapid acceleration of efforts in the run-up to COP 26 and will lay the foundation for further government funded action and regional cooperation as required by Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan’s commitments to Paris Agreement implementation. Actions will be further complemented by the NAP, GCF Readiness and Climate Promise initiatives currently on-going in the countries.
The Paris Agreement establishes a Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) system that will be the foundation for accountable and accurate tracking of greenhouse gas emissions mitigation measures and their impact on GHG emissions reductions, adaptation measures, and resources. The MRV system is therefore a fundamental and essential component of measuring and monitoring all mitigation and adaptation actions. Furthermore, a robust MRV system is necessary for attracting climate finance, and additionally for participation in activities under Article 6 (technology transfers and market and non-market-based mechanisms with the aim of reducing of GHG emissions), a key article in the Paris Agreement established to support developing country parties.
The UNDP will provide the consultative support and guide the process of development of the MRV System in Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan. This activity will build national capacity in order to support the establishment and operation of the MRV system to monitor and assess the implementation of mitigation activities, adaptation activities, and resources.
Under the overall operational supervision of the Manager of the Joint Programme and Programme Analyst, Environment and Climate Action Cluster (ECAC), UNDP Uzbekistan, and under the direct thematic oversight of the Regional Coordinator, , the International Consultant will be responsible to provide policy advise on development of Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) system in Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan and capacity building on MRV, including guiding the national teams on national-level activities led through the UNDP COs in Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, and supporting enhanced understanding of Paris Agreement requirements for Enhanced Transparency Framework in a comprehensive manner by fulfilling the following tasks.
