|Overview : |
The UNDP Regional Bureau for Africa is committed to operationalizing the UN Secretary General’s plan for climate positive actions that will help Africa Build Back Better in the post COVID-19 era2. Some of these strategic actions include: 1) advocating for sustainable energy for all; 2) supporting green transition through decarbonization; 3) promoting green jobs in the context of sustainable and inclusive growth; 4) facilitating efforts towards green economy while ensuring more resilience that leaves no one behind; 5) promoting investment in sustainable solutions and end of fossil fuel subsidies; 6) addressing all types of climate risks; and 7) promoting international cooperation for climate promise.
UNDP is therefore looking to acquire service of a consultant to support with translating the strategic offer for Africa and the Climate Promise into concrete implementation actions. S/he will also establish a solid foundation for the Africa Finance Sector Hub in Pretoria to lead and specialise in partnerships with the private sector in the sustainable energy space in Africa. This will be done by developing a number of strategic products and by mobilising partnerships and financing for Climate Promise flagship initiatives focusing on energy and climate mitigation and adaptation efforts through engagement of the private sector
