|Location :||Home based with travel to BiH, BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA|
|Application Deadline :||12-Dec-18 (Midnight New York, USA)|
|Type of Contract :||Individual Contract|
|Post Level :||National Consultant|
|Languages Required :||English|
|Duration of Initial Contract :||December 2018 - June 2019|
|Expected Duration of Assignment :||50 working days|
Due to a long period of neglect and under-investment, urban infrastructure in BiH, public and residential buildings, energy systems and utilities, waste management, and transport, are now in need of expansion and modernization. From a global environmental standpoint, this situation contributes to a steady increase in greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions, primarily associated with energy use in public facilities. Public facilities are also the largest energy users and GHG emission sources in municipalities in BiH. Modernization, upgrade and expansion of municipal buildings, infrastructure, and services in BiH will improve the quality of urban life and achieve a range of important local and global environmental and sustainable development benefits.
To achieve abovementioned, this Project strives to leverage investment for transformational shift towards low-carbon urban development (LCUD) in Bosnia and Herzegovina thereby promoting safer, cleaner, and healthier cities and reducing urban GHG emissions. To enable this transformational shift, the Project will facilitate implementation of technically and economically feasible low-carbon solutions in key urban sectors and promote their wider uptake by municipalities and private sector via a dedicated financial mechanism established within the national environmental finance framework. The Project will also accelerate the implementation of a policy and regulatory framework supportive to low-carbon investment in cities. First, it will support key environmental finance institutions (i.e. environmental funds) to establish innovative financial mechanisms for LCUD (Component 1). Under Component 2 and 3, the Project will work at the local level with relevant public authorities to help build their capacities to identify, carry out and monitor low-carbon projects in key urban GHG emitting sectors, public facilities, and utilities (Component 2) and waste management and logistics/transport (Component 3). Finally, under Component 4, at the entity/sub-national level the Project will work with relevant public authorities to design and adopt policies and regulations to enable the scale-up low-carbon investment. In addition, national awareness raising, and an advocacy campaign will be conducted to secure public support and promote behavioral changes towards low-carbon urban living.
The Project has been financed by Global Environment Facility (GEF) and is directly implemented by UNDP Bosnia and Herzegovina Country Office.
Therefore, the purpose of the position of a national consultant for review of institutional framework, legal and strategic documents for harmonization of rules and regulations in BiH related to energy management (entity and B-H level) is to conduct review of relevant documents as precondition for achieving the harmonization of institutional, legal and strategic framework of energy management sector in BiH (entity and B-H level).
