UNDP Vietnam is seeking for 01 International Consultant and 01 National Consultant to to map existing governance frameworks and mechanisms related to the Just Energy Transition in Viet Nam, and to map international experience and good practices related to governance of the energy transition

(Ref. 3-220901)

Mitigating climate change and reaching the global target of the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to preferably a maximum of 1.5 degrees requires significant efforts globally as well as in Viet Nam. As one of the countries most affected by climate change, Viet Nam has seen an increase in the strength and frequency of extreme weather, land erosions and slides, and rising sea levels, impacting particularly the poor, women, children, and ethnic minorities.

UNDP is looking for a team of consultants to assess the existing frameworks, mechanisms and efforts related to the governance elements of the Just Energy Transition, to map international good practices of governance in energy transitions, and to propose a sound governance structure and identify gaps and opportunities for interventions by policymakers and development partners.

The objectives of this assignment are:

  • To map existing national governance frameworks for a Just Energy Transition, particularly related to the closing/repurposing of coal-thermal power plants, including legal and policy frameworks, stakeholders’ landscape along with their interests/influence, multi-level governance arrangements and provide a gap analysis to ensure an effective, transparent, evidence-based, accountable, and participatory transition.
  • To map international experience and good practices related to the governance of the energy transition, at local, provincial, and national levels in country contexts similar to Viet Nam. This includes governance frameworks, measures, and mechanisms, in particular those that relate to the closing/repurposing of coal-thermal power plants, and the impact on the most affected and vulnerable groups, to identify good examples and recommendations for improved governance of the transition.
  • To make concrete recommendations for effective, transparent, evidence-based, accountable, and participatory policymaking and programmatic interventions related to the governance of the transition, for policymakers and development partners.
