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 Partnership (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 Steering Committee organizations (UN Environment, UNIDO, GGGI, the OECD, and the World Bank). The GGKP is a global network of over 60 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.

Following an external assessment of the GGKP, the GGKP Steering Committee has decided to expand its successful platform approach to two additional communities: industry (private-sector businesses) and finance – both launched in July 2019.

A consultant is sought to fill the need of the Resources and Markets Branch to assist in the advisory functions, resource mobilization, outreach and networking for the Green Industry Platform. This expertise is not currently held in-house.

Specific tasks and responsibilities

The following interlinked tasks are expected for the duration of the consultancy:

• Produce a report on recommended country data to include on the country pages of the Green Industry Platform;
• Prepare a summary report of a green industry stakeholders workshop, following organization of the same;
• Deliver three documents related to resource mobilization (such as project proposals, concept notes, etc.);
• Identify and secure a minimum 40 new potential business association partners for the Green Industry Platform.
• Any other task as necessary.

Qualifications/special skills

Academic Qualifications: Advanced (Master’s) degree or equivalent in Business Administration, International Affairs, Public Policy or closely related area. Three years of relevant work experience in addition to the minimum experience requirement along with a Bachelor’s degree may be accepted in lieu of an advanced degree.
Experience: A minimum of seven years of accumulated work experience that includes experience in working closely with business associations, resource mobilization in UN or international organisation setting, etc. are required.
Language: English and French are the working languages of the United Nations Secretariat. For the post advertised, fluency in oral and written English is required. Fluidity and professionalism in written English is particularly required, and public speaking and presentation skills in a wide variety of contexts are required in oral English. English language qualifications may be assessed through the submitted cover letter, samples and/or further assessment. Knowledge of another official United Nations language, especially French and/or Spanish, is an advantage.
