Based in Seoul, The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) is an intergovernmental organization founded to support and promote a model of economic growth known as "green growth", which targets key aspects of economic performance such a poverty reduction, job creation, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability. GGGI works with countries around the world, building their capacity and working collaboratively on green growth policies that can impact the lives of millions. The organization partners with countries, multilateral institutions, government bodies, and private sector to help build economies that grow strongly and are more efficient and sustainable in the use of natural resources, less carbon intensive, and more resilient to climate change.
GGGI, along with partner organizations OECS (Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States) and Climate Analytics, has been selected by the NDC Partnership to provide support to the Government of Grenada under its Climate Action Enhancement Package (CAEP, pronounced “cap”), which is aimed at fast-tracking support to countries to enhance the quality, increase the ambition, and implement nationally determined contributions (NDCs).
Under the Paris Agreement, countries revise their NDCs every five years to cut greenhouse gas emissions to limit Earth's temperature rise and implement solutions to adapt to the effects of climate change. The updating of NDCs and their implementation presents countries with significant opportunities to align their climate and development agendas to promote sustainable growth, but also presents challenges in reinventing policies and operations and mobilizing enough investment. The CAEP provides technical and financial support to countries to enhance the quality and increase the ambition of their contributions to the Paris Agreement.
GGGI seeks to recruit an experienced consultant who will support the Government of Grenada and work with the existing GGGI, OECS, and Climate Analytics team to deliver specific activities under the CAEP project, specifically under the tasks regarding assessment of data collection procedures.
The main scope of this assignment is to provide technical support to the Government of Grenada to assess its current processes for collecting and storing climate change-related data. These processes will be important as Grenada moves forward with implementation of its NDC, in order to be able to track and measure progress towards its emissions reduction and other climate goals.
The consultant will work closely with other project partners including Climate Analytics, the UNFCCC MRV Hub, IRENA, OECS, and FAO under the leadership and guidance of the GGGI Caribbean Program Lead. The consultant will work closely with the staff of the Government of Grenada to ensure that the outputs delivered are in line with national priorities and to obtain their to the tasks, as well as to build their skills and knowledge in this area and ensure they understand the methodology used.
