Consultant - Public Management Advisory, AFOLU Sector Project



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 Vietnam is currently working on investment plans aligned with national and sub-national climate strategies to support private investments in strategic areas of the AFOLU sector (hereinafter “the investment opportunities”) including the following typology: long rotation cycle timber plantations, coffee and/or fruit and nut agroforestry systems, and alternative wetting and drying (AWD) rice agricultural systems.  

A number of antecedent conditions that hamper private investment in these areas (hereinafter “the antecedent conditions”) include incomplete or incompatible land use planning, farmland atomization, absence of green credit and incomplete decentralization (not achieved equally among provinces).


Objectives/Purpose of the Assignment


The purpose of the assignment is to conduct, from a resource-based approach, an assessment of the processes and costs of policy change. The assessment should include a SWOT analysis, as well as identifying the costs for policy change understanding reform costs including time dimension, distribution implications of reforms, political economy considerations, and fiscal environment for policy reforms. This assessment will complement the legal and institutional analysis of the AFOLU sector focused on the antecedent conditions and will serve for the development of the Action Plan.


Scope of Work


The consultant will:

1)     Identify, collate, and systematize previous analyses on the matter of the consultancy.

2)     Develop an institutional national/subnational and sector-specific capacity gap analysis focusing on public sector mandates to support the AFOLU sector as related to promoting and facilitating the investments prioritized.

3)     Identify and propose a set of capacity and institutional strengthening actions and measures.

4)     Analyze the costs of implementing applicable policy amendments, and institutional strengthening (staffing, capacity building, law enforcement capacity, research, infrastructure, others).

5)     Co-organize and participate in public consultation events with the MSWG to present and receive feedback on the products of the consultancy

6)     Develop knowledge-sharing materials on the results of the consultancy, to be delivered to public sector officials through capacity building activities.

7)     Co-organize and participate in capacity building activities for public sector officials.


A Multi Stakeholder Working Group (MSWG) will be convened to validate the antecedent conditions and support the identification of the institutional analysis. The consultant will engage with the MSWG (in Vietnamese language) through an iterative process to discuss and validate the antecedent conditions, present and discuss drafts, and validate the final proposed policy changes.  Consultations with MSWG will be done through a combination of virtual and presential meetings.
