UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
The UNDP's Environmental Finance Unit is based in the Bureau of Policy and Programme Support (BPPS) and is responsible for providing leadership, technical support and implementation oversight to, among other areas, delivery of the Environment and Sustainable Development pillar of UNDP’s Strategic Plan. Its main focus is on helping countries develop the capacity to fully incorporate environmental sustainability and resilience into development at national and local, but also global and regional levels. The Unit is organized into a number of substantive technical teams with staff located in both HQs and UNDP's Regional Service Centers in Addis Ababa, Istanbul, Panama, and Bangkok, and with a decentralized structure in terms of financial, operational, and budget managements with authority delegated to respective managers located in HQ or in the region.
With funding from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and a number of donor countries, the Integration Strategies and Small Grants Program (IS/SGP) technical team is implementing a wide range of Climate Change Enabling Activities, Medium and Full sized projects in more than 100 countries, including the National Communications (NC), Biennial Update Reports (BUR) and the Capacity Building Initiative for Transparency (CBIT) projects. The 3 Junior Technical Specialist Consultants are needed to assist with project development, technical advice and implementation oversight for the above-mentioned projects at a global level, liaising directly with Country Offices in all regions.
Reporting is one of the cornerstones of the UN Climate change regime. It provides transparency and is basis for understanding and gauging the implementation of the Convention, the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement (PA). The NCs provide information on greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories, measures to mitigate and to facilitate adequate adaptation to climate change, and any other information that the Party considers relevant to the achievement of the objective of the Convention. The BURs provide an update of the information presented in NCs, in particular on national GHG inventories, mitigation actions, constraints and gaps, including support needed and received. CBIT projects support developing country Parties, upon request, in meeting enhanced transparency requirements as defined in Article 13 of the Agreement in a timely manner.
Duties and Responsibilities
The consultants will provide support to all the regions based on demand in any country over the contract period, in conceptualizing and writing a range of documents relating to project development, implementation support, mid-term review, and terminal evaluation.
