Tonga: LT-LEDS Workshop Youth Facilitator


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. The Kingdom of Tonga became a member country of GGGI in December 2018. 

The Government of the Kingdom of Tonga intends to prepare a national Long-Term Low greenhouse gas Emissions Development Strategy (LT-LEDS), to be communicated to the UNFCCC by the twenty-sixth Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC or COP26. The project is led by the Tonga Department of Climate Change (DoCC) under MEIDECC, with support from ClimateWorks Australia (CWA), GGGI and Relative Creative (RC). 

The LT-LEDS will articulate a long-term vision and direction for the future of Tonga in a low-carbon world, and in a changing climate. The process of developing the LT-LEDS will strengthen and extend existing dialogue and governance processes, building capability within Tonga’s leadership for long-term thinking across different sectors. It is intended that the LT-LEDS will provide a vision and framework for other sectoral and national plans to align with, over time. At the same time as developing the LT-LEDS, this project will support the development of Tonga’s enhanced Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) to be submitted by 2020.  Developing the LT-LEDS and the NDC together will enable alignment between the long-term vision and pathways, and the nearer term planning and investments. 

The process will involve a facilitated dialogue process with key Tongan stakeholders, supported by the DoCC, CWA, GGGI and RC, national and youth facilitators and local thematic consultations, sectoral and cross sectoral analysis and advice, and support in bringing the elements together into an LT-LEDS document owned by Tonga. 

The LT-LEDS workshop Youth Facilitator must be based in Nuku’alofa for the assignment and work closely with the Department of Climate Change. The Youth facilitator will report to the GGGI Pacific Regional Advisor, Relative Creative and CWA and will liaise with and work closely with DoCC, other GGGI staff and consultants involved in different parts of LT-LEDS development.


Objectives/Purpose of the Assignment

The LT-LEDS development process will involve a design-led and culturally-led facilitated dialogue process with key Tongan stakeholders over 5 workshops. The DoCC will lead this process, with support from GGGI, CWA and Relative Creative. RC will bring their expertise in participatory tools, design and facilitation to the dialogues.  Relative Creative will co-design the dialogues, support the ‘National Facilitators’ (NF) and professionally design visual communication product outputs.  

The purpose of the assignment for each Youth Facilitator (YF) is to ensure the workshop days run  smoothly and to support all participants to engage in the process. . As Lead Facilitator (LF), Relative Creative will be remotely facilitating from Australia, so will not have the usual visibility of what is happening in the room to guide them. The LF will look to the YF team of two facilitators (supporting by an additional 4 national facilitators for a total team of 6 people) to collaborate with the LF remotely while ensuring the room, where face-to-face workshopping will occur, feels supported and participants know what is happening each step of the way and are able to engage fully with the activities of each workshop.


Scope of Work

GGGI, CWA and RC are looking for LT-LEDS workshop Youth facilitators who apply his/her experience in workshop facilitation and stakeholder engagement to support the delivery of 5 workshops for the LT-LEDS process.    

He/she supports close communication between DoCC, RC, CWA and GGGI at all times for efficient, timely and well-coordinated implementation of the workshops.  

The consultant will carry out the following activities and outputs:

Activity 1: Kick-off meeting with the MoE, the NDA and GGGI to establish a common understanding of the workshop activities, approach and timeline. This kick-off meeting will be held in the week of 21st September and will be timed to include the other facilitators who will be supporting the LT-LEDS workshop and dialogue process.

Activity 2: Attend a training session for workshop preparation. This training session will be lead by Relative Creative and will take the YF through the workshop design and structure and provide them with the necessary information to carry out the facilitation of the workshops in close collaboration with DoCC and the other team members. The training will also include “dry-runs” of the workshop to practice the activities which will be undertaken.

Activity 3: Supporting the 5 LT-LEDS workshops. The Youth facilitator (YF) will play an important role  in  ensuring  the  days run  smoothly at each workshop. As Lead Facilitator (LF), Relative Creative will be remotely facilitating from Australia, so will not have the usual visibility of what is happening in the room to guide them. The LF will look to the YF team to collaborate with the LF remotely while ensuring the room, where face-to-face workshopping will occurs, feels supported and participants are aware of what is required for each workshop activity.

Each Youth facilitator (YF) will have the responsibility of being properly prepared for the tasks required. This includes attending the training described in Activity 2, doing the required reading and being familiar with the required background information, methods and tools prior to each workshop day.

The YF responsibilities include having the responsibility for assisting 4-8 people on the day of each workshop, including making sure participants understand the structure of the day, the expectations of their role and how to navigate workshop activities.

Each facilitator (YF) will be asked to assist so that all participants fully understand the design-led thinking process the workshops will be adopting, helping guide participants through using design thinking tools.

Activity 4: Supporting the documentation of the workshop outputs and workshop reports. The YFs will also support the DCC’s documentation of the workshop outputs, taking notes during the workshop and or collecting the information produced by participants. 

The deliverables for these activities will be:

    1. Kick-off meeting brief notes
    2. Attendance at training session(s) for workshop preparation
    3. Support the delivery of 5 workshops
    4. Support documentation of workshops (notes during workshop, supporting collection of info)

The facilitator should ensure good communication with DoCC at all times and also keep in regular contact with GGGI, RC and CWA and be responsive to e-mails in a timely manner.
