LAO PDR: Consultant Trainer in Industrial Energy Efficiency

 

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.

Lao Government has published in 2016 the National Policy on Energy Efficiency and Conservation which sets a 10% reduction target in energy consumption by 2030 compared to business-as-usual scenario. The target is included in the 2021 updated Lao Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) submitted to UNFCCC. The Government is also implementing its National Green Growth Strategy (NGGS) approved in 2019, and the industrial sector was selected as priority because of its importance for local economic & social development and environmental sustainability. In this context, the Department of Industry and Handicraft at the Ministry of Industry and Commerce (MOIC) together with GGGI are implementing a Readiness Project funded by the Green Climate Fund, titled “Market Preparation for Industrial Energy Efficiency in Lao PDR”. The project aims to address policy gaps for a more energy efficient industrial sector, develop an action plan for private sector investments in industrial energy sector, and improve sectoral expertise. For the latter, GGGI is looking to recruit a Lao national technical expert to deliver training to selected professionals from the public and private sector.
