UNDP is assisting the Philippines to identify technical, institutional and financial needs to integrate climate change adaptation into ongoing medium and long-term national planning through advancing the National Adaptation Plans process. The government of the Philippines has requested UNDP and the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the UN’s support to develop project proposals to the Green Climate Fund (GCF) to formulate and implement its National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process. This support is led by the UNDP NAP GSP and the FAO, in close collaboration with the Philippines Country Office, the National Designated Authority to the GCF at the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and other key national counterparts. It builds on ongoing initiatives led by UNDP and FAO, including the GCF Readiness Programme and the Integrating Agriculture into NAP Programme, which are both funded by the German Federal Ministry of Environment and Nuclear Safety (BMUB).
Agriculture and water resources have been identified as the two priorities these NAP proposals to the GCF will focus on, given these sectors’ importance for the country’s development and their vulnerability to climate change. UNDP will take the lead on supporting the Government in defining their priority action to plan for climate adaptation in the water sector.
The overall scope of this support includes technical assistance to identify specific needs, capacity gaps, and design activities to operationalize support with regards to advancing the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) processes in the water sector. This also includes the development of a proposal for mobilizing resources to undertake the NAP process.
OBJECTIVES OF THE ASSIGNMENT
The objective of this assignment is to develop a project proposal to plan outputs, activities to operationalize the needs identified during initial consultations. They will help the Government identify and plan for technical support activities and multi-sectoral cooperation to formulate and implement the NAP process in the water sector. This will include identifying areas for resource mobilization, analyzing gaps in institutional capacity to initiate the NAP process, suggest tangible ways of addressing capacity gaps as well as locate strategic opportunities for follow-up. This assistance is also expected to contribute to building awareness about the NAP process in the country and be able to support the communication of the results to stakeholders both in-country as well as externally.
