UNDP Pakistan is developing a set of strategic interventions to strengthen climate responsive budgeting in Pakistan. As a first step, UNDP Pakistan supported the government of Pakistan to undertake a Climate Public Expenditure and Institutional Review (CPEIR), which was a response to interest expressed in the initiative by the Ministry of Climate Change (formerly the Climate Change Division) in the Cabinet Secretariat. The CPEIR report will be finalised by end of February 2015 following which implementation of recommendations ensuing from the report and policy actions for mainstreaming climate change finance into the budgeting process will be implemented. The conduct and output of the CPEIR are expected to contribute to mainstreaming climate finance by raising awareness of strategy and policy issues, promoting the efficient and effective use of resources, assessing policy formulation and implementation thereby contributing in a practical way to greater co-operation between diverse stakeholders. The study will therefore make practical recommendations for future actions and interventions to improve the management of climate finance in Pakistan. The CPEIR approach has potential to become a benchmark reference that will allow policy makers assess the present status of the federal and provincial response to climate change.
This set of interventions will be supported by UNDP Bangkok Regional Hub (BRH) from its regional programme funded by DFID – Strengthening the governance of climate change finance to benefit the poor and vulnerable in South Asia (2013-17). The regional programme has three broad objectives, which are adapted to each country context:
The project in Pakistan, through consultations with stakeholders in both the government and non-government sectors will develop a strategy to work towards those objectives, adapted to the Pakistani context.

Duties and Responsibilities
The objective of the assignment is to provide technical support to the Country Office and BRH in formulation of the project design and in outlining strategic interventions to support the climate finance mainstreaming efforts in Pakistan.
