In 2020, the UN System emitted approximately 1.5 million tonnes of CO2eq through its operations around the world. The six largest humanitarian organisations alone operate more than 11,000 combustion generators to produce electricity needed for public infrastructure, such as water pumping and health facilities. Many humanitarian organisations are aiming to act to achieve carbon neutral energy production on the ground. A Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF) will be introduced to allow country wide decarbonisation programs in humanitarian operations. Along with the actions to solarize the infrastructure of the UN entities as a first step energy usage will be reduced to cut on costs and emissions. The implementation of efficient appliances and procedures can lower energy demand and costs immediately. This will also reduce the energy-provision requirements of renewable systems down the line, resulting in more efficient, cost-effective electricity provision. These measures will have additional positive impacts, such as the development of a vibrant renewable energy market in fragile areas, who are facing the burden of migration and the adverse effects of the climate crisis.
The Decarbonising Humanitarian Energy (DHE) MPTF will facilitate a Centralised Clean Energy Service (CCES), which aims to (a) reduce energy consumption and costs for individual client organisations, (b) support a simplified involvement of the private sector to increase its investment capacity, (c) coordinate the grouping of multiple projects together (“bundling”) to achieve economies of scale and unlock innovative financing mechanisms, (d) produce a suite of evidence-based communications materials that promote lower carbon operations, and (e) open opportunities to improving energy access to the displaced and local host communities
The implementation of the solution will follow the UNDP Green Energy Smart Facilities approach which guarantees efficient, innovative and sustainable management of technologies for UN facilities and other partners, in consistency with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This approach is delivered by the UNDP Information Technology Management/Smart Infrastructure Services team, which among other technologies, is committed to offer a framework of best practices, and to deliver resilient, highly available and sustainable green energy solutions and services that enable innovation to flourish throughout the organization.
The Associate Coordinator will be responsible for assisting, and liaising with, the DHE MPTF Secretariat in the delivery of the work packages, administrative tasks and continued development of the CCES. In addition, the Associate Coordinator will act as the focal point between the DHE MPTF’s in-country team and UNDP’s UNDP Information Technology Management/Smart Infrastructure Services business . The Associate Coordinator will also ensure alignment with the UNDP Information Technology Management/Smart Infrastructure Services business, by establishing and developing relationships with customers, suppliers and other partners.
