UNDP has been supporting the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change in meeting its national and international environmental priorities and commitments. These include close to 40 projects in the area of biodiversity conservation, sustainable resource management, climate change and chemical management. UNDP’s support focusses on technical and policy advisory, institutional strengthening and building capacities of various stakeholders to utilize natural resources in a sustainable way, while increasing resilience to climate variability and associated risks and impacts.
UNDP also supports India’s engagement with the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and works with Central Ministries and state governments to implement GEF funds.
UNDP is developing a full-size project (FSP) entitled, “Strengthening conservation and resilience of globally-significant wild cat landscapes through a focus on small cat and leopard conservation”, with support from the Global Environment Facility (GEF). The project will be anchored in the Wildlife Division of the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change. The project will fall under the GEF 7 Programme on Global Wildlife Programme, comprising a series of national child projects. The development of the FSP will thus entail working closely with a range of stakeholders – government departments and agencies at centre and state level, community -based institutions, civil society organizations, academic and research institutions, private sector and local communities.
UNDP seeks to engage an International Consultant to support the national team during the project preparation phase in the development of the project document and other supporting documents for submission to the GEF Secretariat. The Consultant will coordinate with the other consultants and experts and will ensure timely preparation of all reports and documentation, including the finalized UNDP Project Document (ProDoc), GEF CEO Endorsement Request, project-specific Annexes and supporting documentation required to meet UNDP and WWF GEF Agency requirements.
