UNDP Montenegro, together with Ministry of Ecology, Spatial Planning and Urbanism, is working jointly on preparation of the Montenegro’s Third Biennial Update Report.
The main goal of the project is to assist the country in mainstreaming and integrating climate change considerations into national and sectorial development policies by giving continuity to the institutional and technical capacity strengthening process, partly initiated and sustained by the National Communications.
The project is structured as a set of outputs and activities organized in four (4) components:
1. National circumstances, institutional arrangements, financial, technical and capacity constraints, gaps and needs
2. National GHG Inventory
3. Mitigation actions and domestic MRV system
4. Production of the TBUR report, monitoring and evaluation
Objective of the assignment
Duties and Responsibilities
Under the previous NCs/BURs/INDC, the mitigation potential of certain measures and policies have been modelled up to 2030, for all sectors recognized by the IPCC methodology (Energy, Industrial Processes and Product Use, Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use and Waste) and by using LEAP: the Long-range Energy Alternatives Planning system for energy sector and IPCC software for non-energy sectors. Within the SBUR significant improvement has been made in increasing number of mitigation actions, recognizing whether the action belongs to the EU-ETS (European Union Emission Trading System) or not. For some actions GHG reduction data are missing, mostly due to outdated sectoral strategical documents, which do not provide enough base for sectoral projections. Besides, macro-economic and socio-economic parameters still lack in the analyses, as well as improving transparency and increasing visibility of the results.
Using best practices, the SBUR and latest NDC, assessment of sectors and interventions contributing to GHG emission reduction at the national level will be conducted within the on-going TNC. The proposed TBUR project will continue the work of the TNC and the SBUR in all key IPCC sectors. First, it will expand analysis of mitigation actions, including the following features:
Thus, the consultant will be responsible for the following:
Main project deliverables will include the following:
I. First draft Mitigation Chapter – 15th June 2021
Time duration and travel:
The assignment will be carried out within 50 working days from 3rd May until 25th July 2021. Due to the nature of the assignment, the consultant would have to closely collaborate with the Ministry of Ecology, Spatial Planning and Urbanism, i.e. its Division for Climate Change, as well as Environment Protection Agency.
Along with the application, interested candidates should provide a detailed methodology and workplan at firstname.lastname@example.org , explaining how they would approach the task, which methodology they would apply in developing Mitigation Chapter, which data they would use and national institutions they would consult.
