Duties and Responsibilities

The Joint UNDP-UNEP Poverty-Environment Action for Sustainable Development Goals (Poverty-Environment Action) project is a global endeavor for the period August 2018–December 2022. Poverty-Environment Action builds on the deep experience of the UNDP–UNEP Poverty-Environment Initiative (PEI). Over the past decade, PEI pioneered integrated approaches to mainstreaming poverty environment linkages in national development planning and implementation processes—first in support of national efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, and subsequently as a model for implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
By building on PEI's legacy, Poverty-Environment Action is uniquely placed to ensure that the environmental dimensions are not left behind when addressing poverty. Leveraging on the broader 2030 Agenda and SDG implementation processes provides new entry points not only to mainstream environmental sustainability and related climate concerns for poverty aleviation, but also to gradually shift government priorities and resource allocation towards addressing these issues. Further, it provides opportunities to improve the quality of private and public sector investments to support poverty-environment objectives. This represents the new focus of Poverty-Environment Action—aligning finance and investment with poverty, environment and climate objectives to accelerate SDG implementation.

Under the supervision of UNEP’s Regional Development Coordinator and Poverty-Environment Action Focal Point in the Asia and the Pacific Office, Bangkok, the consultant will:
1. Provide expertise on Poverty-Environment Action reporting obligations, development of knowledge products and communications tools.
(a) Organization of regional and global Poverty-Environment Action events specific to the Asia-Pacific region.
(b) Provide technical expertise for Poverty-Environment Action outreach activities in Asia-Pacific region including through drafting press releases.
(c) Initiate topical Op-Eds, roundtables and panel discussions, oversight exhibition booths, engage social media (working with regional office media team) and other communications joint events.
(d) Review national annual Poverty-Environment Action reports, harmonise annual project reports and periodic reports to the Project Board.
2. Technical advisory to PEA countries drawing on PEA, UNEP, UNDP’s expertise; and
prepare project evaluation and closure report
(a) Reporting advisory to Poverty-Environment Action countries and Technical Assistance as required for the UNEP and UNDP broader knowledge and technical toolkits.
(b) Technical advisory to the Poverty-Environment Action project during its closure phase in Q4 of 2022 as well as preparations for the final Poverty-Environment Action evaluation.

3. Strengthen poverty and environment dimension of UN system national and regional planning processes in line with the UN reforms and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development for the Asia-Pacific region and provide a report:
(a) Engage in strategic processes with the UN system, and key partners in promoting priority areas under Poverty-Environment Action and UNEP's broader environment and climate change agenda including integrating these into the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework and Common Country Assessment processes, the work of UN Country Teams, and UN Regional Collaboration Platform.
(b) Prepare the UNCT and Regional Issue Based Coalition engagement report.
(c) Provide technical advice to UNCT Focal Points on CCA/CF design and implementation.
Poverty-Environment Action assists government decision-makers and a wide range of other stakeholders seeking to manage the environment in a way that improves livelihoods and leads to investments in sustainable growth that ensures economic growth and poverty reduction initiatives are not at the expense of the environment, with an overall aim to bring about lasting institutional change and to increase investment in pro-poor environmental and natural resource management. Poverty-Environment Action also demonstrates UNEP and UNDP's commitment to delivering together in line with the current UN reform agenda as outlined by the UN Secretary-General.
