Applications through UNDP jobs will not be accepted, only to the email@example.com email address.
Interested candidates are required to read the Procurement Notice for Individual Consultants and its related documents, which are available in the following websites:
The consultancy will be developed in the framework of the project “Mainstreaming biodiversity conservation into the tourism sector in synergy with a further strengthened protected areas system in Cabo Verde”, executed by the Ministry of Agriculture and Environment (MAA), through the National Directorate of the Environment (DNA), in close collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism and Transport, and co-funded by the UNDP and the GEF.
The project’s main objective is to safeguard globally significant biodiversity in Cabo Verde from current and emerging threats, by enhancing the enabling and regulatory frameworks in the tourism sector and activating a critical further subset of the national protected areas (PAs) system.
The proposed alternative scenario, supported by the project, will create enabling conditions to mitigate the adverse impacts on biodiversity by the tourism sector in Cabo Verde. The frameworks will be developed at national level and tentatively rolled out in four priority islands – Santiago, Sal, Boa Vista and Maio – where immediate pressure is greatest and urgent action is required that can be replicated more widely in the future. This urgent action includes at the local level the pending operationalization of a number of critical terrestrial and marine/coastal PAs and the piloting of marine biodiversity and artisanal fisheries management together with communities in two selected sites. At the same time the project will harness the opportunities to establish more sustainable tools for PA financing, protected area management and local community development, contributing to the consolidation and diversification of Cabo Verde tourism product, and the sustainability of the destination and the sector. This will be achieved through the following two project components:?
Under Project Output 1.2 “Cross-sectoral planning integrates biodiversity conservation objectives, and Strategic Environmental Assessments (SEAs) conducted in priority PAs/ ZRPTs.” the BIO-TUR project supported the DNA in the development of a participatory process that brought to the elaboration of a proposal for a Law-Decree to introduce SEA in Cabo Verde.
In order to provide reliable supporting information to national decision makers, and to the wider stakeholders community, key project Partners, within the framework of the Project Technical Committee (PTC), identified the need to elaborate a cost–benefit analysis on the application of the Law-Decree proposal. The consultancy described in these ToRs aims to address the needs identified by the PTC.
Duties and Responsibilities
The international consultant will support the MAA, through the DNA and the Project Management Unit (PMU) to develop a cost–benefit analysis related to the implementation of the Law-Decree on Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) proposal developed by the MAA/DNA in the framework of the BIO-TUR Project, which is currently in the process to be assessed by competent National Authorities. The analysis has to provide relevant information to complete the ongoing assessment process.
