PAPUA NEW GUINEA: TRANSPORT SECTOR GHG MODELLING SPECIALIST CONSULTANT

INTRODUCTION TO GGGI

The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) is a treaty-based international, inter-governmental organization dedicated to supporting and promoting strong, inclusive and sustainable economic growth in developing countries and emerging economies. To learn more please visit about GGGI web page.

INTRODUCTION TO GGGI PNG PROGRAM

Papua New Guinea (PNG) joined the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) in 2012, embarking on a partnership to foster sustainable and inclusive economic growth. GGGI's presence in PNG, established in 2018, supports the government's integration of climate-resilient green growth (CRGG) strategies and the execution of green growth projects through mobilization of climate finance and investments.

The GGGI PNG main office is embedded within the Climate Change Development Authority (CCDA), government of PNG, with presence in the Center of Excellence for Financial Inclusion at the Central Bank of Papua New Guinea, and at the sub-national level within Enga, New Ireland, and Milne Bay Provincial Government Administrations. GGGI PNG Program is scaling up its activities with the support from Australia, New Zealand, GCF, USA, and France for inclusive green economic growth for PNG over the next five years with a target to mobilize USD 500 million in climate investments and scale up climate resilience and green growth planning at national and subnational levels.

PROJECT BACKGROUND

In 2017, Papua New Guinea's (PNG) energy sector accounted for the largest net emissions at 80.5%, mainly due to increased fossil fuel consumption from manufacturing and construction, as well as road transportation. The transport sub-sector contributed approximately 23% to the total energy sector emissions in 2017[1], a significant increase from 17% in 2015[2]. With the projected growth in the number of vehicles (155,000 in 2005 to 600,000 by 2030[3]), emissions from the transport sector are expected to double over 20 years under a business-as-usual scenario. PNG is committed to carbon neutrality in the energy industries sub-sector, aiming to achieve this through increased use of renewables and reducing fuel consumption in the transportation sector, including the introduction of hybrid and electric vehicles.

This Readiness project “Promoting Electric Mobility in Papua New Guinea” aims to overcome barriers hindering electric vehicle (EV) adoption in Papua New Guinea (PNG), addressing issues like coordination, expertise, planning, and public awareness. It seeks to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by promoting EV mobility, supporting PNG's emission reduction goals, especially in the transport sector. Key outputs include establishing stakeholder engagement mechanisms, training relevant stakeholders for Green Climate Fund (GCF)-funded activities, conducting research studies, identifying climate technologies, and developing sectorial strategic frameworks. These efforts aim to facilitate planning and implementation of GCF-funded activities, ultimately contributing to PNG's GHG emission reduction targets and promoting sustainable transportation solutions.

OBJECTIVES OF THE ASSIGNMENT

The objective of the assignment for the Transport Sector GHG Modelling Specialist (the Specialist) is to develop a comprehensive GHG emission model specific to the road transport sector in Papua New Guinea (PNG). The Transport Sector GHG Modelling Specialist will undertake the following activities over approximately 50 days:

  1. Conduct a thorough situation analysis to identify existing data gaps in road transport and requirements for GHG modelling development in the road transport sector in PNG.
  2. Review and present approaches in transport sector GHG modelling from best practices (including pros and cons) and suggest an appropriate approach considering PNG’s national context.
  3. Design and develop an excel-based road transport emission model for PNG to accurately capture vehicle stock, energy usage, GHG emissions, and local pollutant emissions.
  4. Collect and verify data essential for emission modeling, including vehicle types, fuel types, emission standards, and other relevant parameters.
  5. Conduct a two-day training workshop to impart knowledge and skills on the road transport emission model to the Department of Transport (DoT) and Climate Change & Development Authority (CCDA) stakeholders.
  6. Share developed Excel-based GHG model with user manuals for update and maintenance.
  7. The Specialist will collaborate closely with the PNG government agencies and relevant stakeholders to ensure the developed GHG emission model aligns with national priorities, is implementable, and supports PNG's emission reduction goals.
