Introduction :




As one of the Accelerator Labs participating in the Design Studio, South Africa will focus on contributing towards the overall JET framework through gathering collective intelligence on the transition, specifically surfacing the preferences of those most vulnerable to the national shift towards net-zero emissions. Explicitly, the focus will be on those involved in the coal-value chain - coal miners and mining communities - as they will face the earliest disruptions in the transition towards greener alternatives. Thus, the overall aim of the TOR is to ensure that the transition is just by surfacing and engaging different perspectives of coal miners and coal mining communities on the JET roadmap implementation. It intends to do so through the following objectives:


·       Providing a platform to people to share their views, perceptions, etc on the JET and how it is affecting, and will affect, their lives.


·       Creating a mechanism in which to report findings to the relevant parties responsible for JET and to ensure that miner’s and communities’ preferences are considered in the planning and implementation of the transition.


·       Contribute towards a well-managed transition that can be a strong driver for economic diversification, social justice, and poverty eradication.


·       To support enhanced public participation and awareness around the JET and climate change, generate a public debate, and create a platform for coal miners and surrounding communities to voice their opinions what change and interventions they would like to see in terms of alternative livelihoods.


·       To contribute to the Government’s JET efforts and ongoing initiatives to ensure that its implementation is ‘bottom up’ i.e. inclusive and people-centred with the intention to leave no one behind especially the most vulnerable.


·       Codifying collective learning on climate change and the practice of Collective Intelligence deployed by the broader network of UNDP Accelerator Labs.



The CIC will be undertaken through a public survey, coupled with a dialogue session, and communications campaign. This specific TOR refers to a professional survey provider to undertake the survey. The public survey will be conducted (demographically and sex-disaggregated data), to shed light on attitudes/reflections/opinions of coal miners and coal mining communities. The findings will be analysed and presented in a dialogue event. The responses from the public dialogue will be consolidated into reports and social media feeds that lay out bottoms-up JET recommendations.


3.1 The survey:

The intended sample size would be around 1,000 respondents representing a diverse sample focusing on communities associated with coal fields (e.g. in Mpumalanga and Limpopo).

In the design of the surveys, the service provider would work closely with UNDP’s Accelerator Labs. This way, the collected data will serve as intelligence to inform the sectoral/thematic approaches of the CIC across its various workstreams.

Preferably, the survey should be undertaken by agents that can connect with and collect data from mining communities in which they reside. To empower the agents by using innovating models, e.g. a work-boosting microtask that provides a small financial earning for each collected survey, is also a preferred methodology.

The survey must be undertaken in a Covid-19 safe manner with PPE and safety training provided to the people that will collect survey data.


3.2. Expected Deliverables:

·       Early preparations, and co-design the survey with UNDP.

·       Undertake mass public survey to enable a wide and inclusive reach across coal communities (sample size around 10,000). Survey to be ideally undertaken in the following areas of Mpumalanga and Limpopo: Lephalale, Emalahleni, Witbank, Ermelo, Highveld, Kangwane, Kliprivier, Nongoma, Soutpansberg, Utrecht, Vereeniging-Sasolburg, Vryheid, or Waterberg.

·       Prepare an analysis report of findings including demographically and sex-disaggregated data.
