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.
In accordance with its commitments as a non Annex I Party and as mandated by Article 12 of the UNFCCC and subsequent CoP decisions, Samoa will prepapre and submit its Third National Communication (TNC) and First Biennial Update Report (FBUR) to the Conference of Parties (CoP) of the UNFCCC. The project is implemented by UNDP and the Government of Samoa via the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment. The project aims to update the information provided regarding national circumstances, inventories of greenhouse gases (GHG), policies and measures undertaken to mitigate climate change, assessments of vulnerability to climate change and steps taken to adapt, and promote increased awareness and understanding of critical importance of climate change to its sustainable development. The project will also increase the national technical and institutional capacities in preparing the NC/BUR and assisting the Government to integrate climate change issues into sectoral and national development priorities that directly contribute to achieving Sustainable Development Goal 13: Climate Action.
The implementation of the project objectives will support Samoa’s preparation of a high quality National Communication and Biennial Update Report to be submitted to the UNFCCC in a timely manner. As GHG inventories are a key component of both the National Communication and Biennial Update Report, the project will take a learning-by-doing approach, to the extent possible taking into account limited staffs trained in populating and managing the GHG Inventory. In this way, the project intends to catalyze the institutionalization of knowledge among the national participating experts and partner institutions involved in the development of national GHG Inventory, in particular to improve quality control and quality assurance of the inventory’s data.
Given the findings from the last Second National Communication (2010) and the Intended National Determined Contributions (2015), important challenges remain. Although the exercises to prepare these reports have resulted in increased capacities to collect and manage data and information to carry out, for example vulnerability assessments, critical data and information gaps remain. Greater collaboration and institutional coordination is needed to ensure that critical understanding of the data and information needs for all sectors are adequately understood in order to move forward with policy implementation. While financing from the international community is available, it remains fragmented and insufficient at the local level, which is important to the pursuit of better adaptation practices.
The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment has requested UNDP to contract a national expert who will gather GHG data of Samoa and perform analysis. The data analyst will work under the guidance of the Ministry and the Project Coordinator.
