The preamble of the Paris Agreement on climate change, adopted in 2015, underscores close links between climate action, sustainable development and a just transition, with Parties to the Agreement “taking into account the imperatives of a just transition of the workforce and the creation of decent work and quality jobs in accordance with nationally defined development priorities. Ideally, any NDC process should be informed by an assessment of the employment impacts—positive and negative—as well as an indication of the measures that will be taken to ensure a Just Transition for workers, as indicated in the Paris Agreement. Against this background, UNDP NDC Support Programme is supporting countries to measure how green and climate policies affect job creation, for women and youth, income distribution, skills development and economic growth, using the tool developed by the International Labour Office (ILO). This tool will provide quantitative and qualitative employment estimates for evidence-based decision making.
UNDP NDC Support Programme supports governments to achieve transformational change by scaling up public and private investments in climate change actions to deliver long-term sustainable development and championing the benefits of zero-carbon, climate-resilient development. It will enhance the capacities of public- and private-sector actors to deliver on NDC targets through strengthened climate governance; implementation of mitigation actions and mid-century, low-emission development strategies; engagement of the private sector; and improved investment environments. It currently supports 36 countries in a variety of NDC-related work areas that include the development of NDC implementation plans, strengthening of monitoring systems, and mainstreaming of gender-responsive approaches. The program is also collecting and disseminating best practices and lessons learned to advance global progress on NDC implementation.
Duties and Responsibilities
Under the overall supervision of the NDC Support Programme manager and working closely with the team, the recruited consultant is tasked to develop a National Green Jobs Assessment Model for two African countries and assess the policy questions related to NDC policy making following the methodology as described in the Guidebook on How to Measure and Model Social and Employment Outcomes of Climate and Sustainable Development Policies.

µ = price of the lowest priced proposal
z = price of the proposal being evaluated
Candidate obtaining the highest score in the combined score of Technical and Financial evaluation will be considered technically qualified and will be offered to enter into contract with UNDP.
