NDC Partnership Plan
The NDC Partnership (NDCP) was launched at the 22nd Conference of the Parties (COP) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 2016 in Marrakech. It is a coalition of countries and international institutions working together to ensure countries receive necessary technical and financial support to achieve ambitious climate and sustainable development targets as fast and effectively as possible. It builds in-country capacity and increases knowledge sharing for climate policies to have meaningful and enduring impacts, and drive increasing ambition over time. The NDC Partnership Support Unit (NDC Partnership SU) is hosted by the World Resources Institute (WRI) based in Washington DC and the UNFCCC in Bonn.
The Partnership works through country-driven approaches and is founded on the principle that effective cooperation, together with horizontal and vertical coordination can fast-track the achievement of results and enhance collective impact of invested resources. Member countries who request support and drive in-country implementation of NDCs (Nationally Determined Contributions) obtain access to a large network of partners who can deliver a flexible array of services (i.e. technical assistance, financial support and knowledge enhancement).
The development of the NDC Partnership Plan for the Philippines is based on the submitted request for support of the Philippines. Scoping activities including mapping of projects, consultations, and workshops with relevant agencies and development partners have been undertaken which led to the continued refinement of the Partnership Plan. Currently, the draft plan has undergone its second revision and has been presented to sectors through house-to-house consultation during the First Quarter of 2020. The house calls finalized the needs identified by sectors as indicated in the 2nd revised draft, and the agencies identified the specific needs for their request.
In this context, recognizing the importance of having a country-based interface with knowledge of the local reality, the Philippines will have a Consultant to oversee the process. His/her main responsibility is to ensure the development and finalization of the NDC Partnership Plan including coordination between the Philippine Government, Implementing Partners and other development partners on the ground. The Consultant will provide recommendations to the country's leadership in the implementation of the NDC Partnership Plan and to promote a whole-of-government and coordinated approach to adaptation and mitigation actions.

Duty station is home-based. The expected duration of the assignment is sixty (60) person-days between 15 March 2022 and 31 May 2022, unless revised in a mutually agreed upon timetable between the Consultant and UNDP.
