International Expert on Small Hydro Power Planning and Sea
|Location :||Home-based with Missions in Albania|
|Application Deadline :||12-Feb-16 (Midnight New York, USA)|
|Type of Contract :||Individual Contract|
|Post Level :||International Consultant|
|Languages Required :||English|
|Expected Duration of Assignment :||Up to 30 working days over period from 15 February 2016 to 30 May 2016|
The objective of the proposed project supported by the Delivery Results Together Fund is to support the development of a strategic environmental assessment (SEA) addressing the development of the SHPP sector at the regional (basin) level in Albania. The project will strengthen the capacity of the Government of Albania to integrate SEAs into energy and environmental decision-making, and it will provide valuable information that is urgently needed by all stakeholders.
The proposed initiative responds to the need of the government of Albania to ensure sustainable development in line with EU accession requirements and multilateral environment agreements. The Protocol on Strategic Environmental Assessment to the Convention on Environmental Impact Assessment in a Transboundary Context, which was ratified by Albania in 2005, requires all parties to evaluate the consequences of their draft policies and programs.
UNDP is currently supporting the government to enact a legal framework and action plan for renewable energy that is in line with current government goals; i.e., a secure energy supply, sustainability that takes climate change into consideration, increased foreign investment, and new green jobs. An SEA for the SHPP sector will ensure that these goals are sustainable at the country level and at the local level. The SEA process will also foster broader involvement in energy decision-making by citizens and communities and increase awareness of potential water shortages and other climate impacts.
To implement the project, a MoU is agreed by both, UNDP on behalf of the 2015 One UN Integrated Annual Work plan, Output 4.4 Climate Change, and the Ministry of Energy and Industry in charge for the SHPPs policy, valid until 31st of December, 2016.
