Duties and Responsibilities

The United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment) is the United Nations system’s designated entity for addressing environmental issues at the global and regional level. Its mandate is to coordinate the development of environmental policy consensus by keeping the global environment under review and bringing emerging issues to the attention of governments and the international community for action.

The Green Growth Knowledge Platform (GGKP) is hosted by UN Environment, in partnership with the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI). These organizations serve as the joint host of the GGKP Secretariat (www.greengrowthknowledge.org) on behalf of the GGKP founding organizations (UN Environment, GGGI, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, and the World Bank). The GGKP is a global network of over 58 international organizations, research institutes, and think tanks focused on promoting a green economy transition by:

• identifying major knowledge gaps in green growth theory and practice and addressing these gaps through the promotion of collaboration and coordinated research; and

• using world-class knowledge management and communication tools to provide practitioners, policymakers, and other experts with opportunities to access, share, and utilize green growth policy analysis, guidance, information, and data.

Green Growth Expert Connect was launched by the GGKP in March 2017 to provide policymakers direct access to world leading technical and policy experts for guidance on green growth topics. In 2018, Expert Connect will expand its expert roster, portfolio of activities, as well as communication and outreach efforts.

A consultant is sought to assist with design and production of communication materials for the Green Growth Knowledge Platform’s outreach efforts, particularly in the context of the Expert Connect Solution’s expansion .

The Resources and Markets Branch does not possess this expertise in house and needs to seek for outside assistance.
