|Location :||Home-based with missions|

|Languages Required :||English|

|Expected Duration of Assignment :||approximately 4-5 days per month, i.e. total estimated input of 100 working days|
The Black Sea Basin environment is of paramount importance both in terms of regional development and of quality of life for its inhabitants. The Black Sea ecosystem is known to be rich and diverse but is also considered to be vulnerable as it experiences notably significant pressure from land-based pollution. The seriousness of environmental issues has been recognised by the countries of the region and they have responded with national and regional strategies and actions to tackle these issues. The Convention on the Protection of the Black Sea against Pollution (Bucharest Convention) addresses these problems through enhanced cooperation among its signatories. Further coordination in policies and legislation is a common interest to all the Black Sea countries. This is particularly true for the riparian Member States of the European Union: being Contracting Parties to the Bucharest Convention and members of the Black Sea Commission (BSC), they also value such coordination as a factor that influences their own ability to comply with the EU legislation, notably the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) and the EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD).
Duties and Responsibilities
The Expert for Public Relations (PR Expert) will support the project implementation in the activities related to public communication and promotion of project results, with particular attention to the PR activities related to the monitoring cruises, awareness raising campaigns, public events, grant programs and dissemination and promotion of the project results.
The consultant will prepare several deliverables in cooperation with the project experts, within the following time frame and payment schedule:
June 2019 (25 % of payment)
October 2019 (25% of payment)
August 2020 (25% of payment)
The assignment will require travel in the region, as specified above (section: Location). Any additional travels requested by UNDP will be covered separately as per UNDP rules and regulations. The consultant is expected to work closely with UNDP Istanbul Regional Hub, with the staff, responsible for the project implementation.
