UNDP-Global Environmental Finance Unit is based in UNDP’s Bureau of Policy and Programme Support and is responsible for providing leadership and technical support 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 principal areas of work are in environmental mainstreaming, environmental finance, adaptation to climate change, and local governance of resources, including energy.
The UNDP-GEF Unit helps developing countries to access, combine, and sequence resources from a wide range of funds, financial instruments, and mechanisms. . To achieve this, it works closely with UNDP country offices to help countries develop and implement programmes and projects which advance their capacity to put in place the right mix of regulatory and financial incentives, remove institutional and policy barriers, and create enabling environments that attract and drive private sector investment into sustainable development.
Within the UNDP-GEF unit, the work focuses on resilient livelihoods, food and agricultural systems, water management, climate information, resilient ecosystems and ecosystem-based adaptation, making the use and supply of energy more environmentally sustainable, affordable and accessible, to promote low emission and climate resilient urban and transport infrastructure, and to improve water and ocean governance and management and to sustain livelihoods at the local, national, regional and global scales.
In the context of the above, UNDP-GEF is looking to recruit the services of two consultants who will provide coordinated support with systematically documenting the evolution and results of select projects/programmes through improved communications, knowledge management, and external outreach. The consultants will also support with the organization of workshops and ensuring the sustainability of relevant UNDP-supported knowledge platforms.
The two consultants will assist UNDP-GEF to improve its communications and advocacy work on results achieved through a selection of projects in the different UNDP-GEF portfolios. The assignment is geared to broaden and deepen awareness of UNDP-supported programmes in these areas of work, engage with key audiences (donors, client countries, media as well as internal UNDP stakeholders), create brand recognition and lift the related media profile of UNDP-supported adaptation and biodiversity projects. The consultants will aim to introduce intervention instruments, highlight individual projects to different audiences, and mobilize partners, stakeholders, and the general public to advocate on results achieved through the portfolios.
