International Consultant on Preparation of a Green Climate Fund Proposal

Home Based - May require travel (Home Based)

Background

UNDP was requested by the DG/ECD (Myanmar GCF Nationally Designated Authority, NDA) to prepare a submission to the GCF for a project to implement REDD+. 

In late 2018 the GCF opened a new funding window for a pilot period: the “Simplified Approval Process” (SAP).  SAP submissions can be for all-grant financing.  Conditions to be satisfied for SAP submissions include a funding request to the GCF of less than USD 10 million; and a project with no social or environmental risks.

UNDP will therefore prepare a SAP submission with the following features:

  • A “sustainable landscape” approach, working in a landscape with significant rubber production, in Mawlamyaing District, Mon State.

  • As large-scale agribusiness concessions are not common in Mawlamyaing District, there will be a focus on community forests.

To ensure compliance with the “no social or environmental risks” condition, a major emphasis on Free Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) will be required early in 2019, with provisions to support FPIC throughout the process of project development.
