The Programme on Nature, Environment and Energy in the UNDP South Africa Country Office supports the South African Government in strategic technical assistance on policy development and implementation, human capital development, and strengthening legal frameworks and institutions. The program contributes to the achievement of programme outcomes as per Strategic Cooperation Framework (SCF 2020-2025) and the Country Programme Document (CPD 2020-2025) as agreed with national counterparts.
The Energy and Environment Program is constituted by various project funded by the Global Environment Fund (GEF) and include areas of renewable energies, water management and biodiversity. The projects are largely implemented through the National Implementation Modality (NIM), with UNDP playing the oversight role and Government technical support in the projects’ implementation. Other projects that are directly implemented by UNDP, include the Biodiversity Finance Initiative (BIOFIN), the global initiative on implementing the Nagoya Protocol, and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC)/climate enhancement initiatives
UNDP is seeking the services of a short-term consultant to assist in the coordination and oversight of the Energy and Environment portfolio, as well as in providing technical support to the implementation partners as required.
