Specifics of Recruitment

Introduction:

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 supports stakeholders through complementary and integrated workstreams – Green Growth Planning & Implementation and Knowledge Solutions – that deliver comprehensive products designed to assist in developing, financing, and mainstreaming green growth in national economic development plans.

 

The Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) is a founding member of the GGGI and signed the treaty to establish GGGI as an international organization in 2012. In 2012 to 2014, the GGGI has assisted the RGC with establishing its national policy framework and institutional arrangements for green growth. GGGI’s primary counterpart in the RGC is the Department of Green Economy, within the General Secretariat of the National Council for Sustainable Development (NCSD). Since 2015, GGGI has been supporting the Department of Green Economy to implement the Green Urban Development Program under GGGI’s Work Program and Budget for 2015-2016. 

 

GGGI currently implementing the Green Urban Development Program Phase 2, in partnership with the NCSD and the Ministry of Interior (MOI) in 2017-2018.  The program is supporting green city development in selected secondary cities of Cambodia. The program aims to deliver the following outputs by the end of 2018:

  • Develop National Strategic Plan for Green Secondary Cities and submit to government
  • Develop a list of prioritized green growth investment opportunities in secondary cities for submission to potential funders

The program formally commenced in June 2017 with an inception workshop and initial capacity building program. The next policy consultation workshop and capacity development program will be held for the program on 30-31 August in Siem Reap, jointly organized by GGGI, MOI and NCSD.

 

Objectives/Purpose of the Assignment:

The purpose of the assignment is to support the delivery of capacity development training for the government officials attending the upcoming workshop in Siem Reap.  The workshop will be held on 30‑31st August in Siem Reap for approximately 60 government officials, including representatives from the cities of Bavet, Kampong Cham, Soung, Sihanoukville, Kep, Siem Reap and Battambang, as well as the relevant sector ministries. Relevant development partners and NGOs will also be invited to attend the workshop and participate in the training.

GGGI’s focus of the training is on solid waste management and urban sanitation for the workshop.  The training is intended to provide a conceptual introduction to the topics to the city governors and their lead support staff in the municipalities should understand for these key urban green growth issues, as an awareness raising effort. The assignment is to prepare capacity development training materials and deliver the training on two topics:

  • Solid waste management (basic knowledge of solid waste, baseline, challenges, waste management technology).
  • Urban wastewater management (basic understanding of wastewater, sewerage systems, wastewater treatment options, and financial aspect for O&M).

The training will be linked to a field visit in Siem Reap to two sites: (1) GAEA Solid waste transfer system, (2) Siem Reap wastewater treatment plant. The capacity building training will be linked to this field trip and the trainer will facilitate a reflection from the field mission.  

 

The training materials delivered should be interactive and draw from international best practice experiences, as well as Cambodian best practice experience, and draw on detailed knowledge of Cambodia’s laws and regulations. The relevant government officials will also be invited by GGGI to present on the laws and regulations for the respective topics during the workshop, from the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Public Works and Transport.

 

Scope of Work:

  1. Prepare capacity development training materials as per the agenda (see box below), including PowerPoint slides (both in English and Khmer languages), discussion questions and/or group exercises on the two topics identified (solid waste management and urban wastewater management). (estimated 3 days work)
  2. Deliver the capacity development training for the government officials attending the workshop on 31st August (the consultant can also attend the first day of the workshop on 30th August to understand the local stakeholders and broader context of the program). (estimated 3 days work including travel time)
