For 40 years until 2009, UNDP implemented over 270 development projects in the Republic of Korea and played an important role in helping Korea’s successful transition from net recipient of development cooperation to donor, and member of OECD/DAC. Therefore, in 2009, UNDP and the Government of the Republic of Korea agreed on a new kind of UNDP presence in the Republic of Korea, and the UNDP Seoul Policy Centre on Global Development Partnership (USPC) was established in 2011.
This centre constitutes an integral part of the UNDP HQ’s Bureau for Policy and Programme Support (BPPS) in New York. USPC represents UNDP in Korea and has three main functions: to work with Korea on international issues, such as the sustainable development goals (SDGs) of the Agenda 2030; to share Korea’s development experiences with other countries; and to perform pragmatic and policy-relevant research.
The work of the Centre is organized under four pillars: Global issues, Development Solutions Partnerships (DSP)s, Policy research, and Communications and Outreach. Under the direct supervision of the Green Economy Policy Specialist, and overall supervision of the Centre’s Director, the Environment Consultant will support various aspects of the Centre’s environment programme including various DSP implementation to share Korea’s practical policy tools and lessons learned through UNDP’s global network. This will include support towards implementation of environment pilot (DSP)s in the four areas of waste management; waste water quality and sanitation; sustainable energy and energy efficiency; and sustainable forestry.
Based on Korea Ministry of Environment (MOE) and Korea Environment Corporation(K-eco)’s deep interest to work with USPC on Circular Economy issues, this is an area of work where USPC needs to invest more capacity and staff time. Under the direct supervision of the Green Economy Policy Specialist and overall supervision of USPC Director, this consultant will be retained through end June, 2019, with a possible extension of up to 3 months in 2019 to support USPC’s day-to-day environment portfolio related work as needed
