UNDP is working with the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency on GEF project development to support transformation of Sharm El-Sheikh City into a green city. The overall project objective of the project will be to turn Sharm El Sheikh into a model integrated and ecologically sustainable tourism city of national and international importance through the adoption of further low-carbon technologies, good waste management practices and a further-enhanced protection of its natural capital. The project concept is based on a vision of the Green Sharm Initiative that the Government has developed for the city in 2010. This will be achieved through a holistic approach including four key components, namely: reduced carbon emissions, sustainable water supply, effective waste management and healthy biodiversity in particular coral reefs.
UNDP will recruit an international expert on climate change mitigation and GEF project development to prepare the project document and full proposal with all required annexes in time for submission. The project formulation expert is expected to have a strong climate change mitigation and energy background. Since it is a multi-disciplinary project, the project formulation expert will receive technical inputs from three International Consultants on biodiversity, waste management and environmental safeguards as well as a national consulting firm to support in collection of baseline data and identification of local context.
Duties and Responsibilities
The consultant will be recruited by UNDP Country Office, under an overall technical guidance of the UNDP’s Regional Technical Advisors (RTA) for biodiversity with support from Regional Technical Advisors on climate change mitigation and chemicals management.
