Result of Service

The National SLCP Expert will support the Dominican Republic national SLCP planning and implementation efforts. This will include integrated SLCP assessments, the products from the Black Carbon 1.0 and 2.0 project and based on those rapid and large-scale implementations of actions that reduce SLCPs at the national level. The expert will also assist in strengthening the long-term institutional and technical capacity dedicated to supporting key mitigation measures that contribute to reducing emissions from these high impact sector and political and institutional backing for the SLCP mitigation strategy.

Work Location

Dominican Republic

Expected duration

12 months of work over a 12-month period. Starting October 2022 and ending in September 2023

Duties and Responsibilities

The Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) is a partnership of governments, intergovernmental organizations, and representatives of the private sector, the environmental community, and other members of civil society.
The CCAC is the only international initiative working on integrated climate and clean air solutions to reduce the rate of near-term warming. It focuses on fast action to reduce emissions of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) including methane, black carbon, HFCs and tropospheric ozone.

More information on the CCAC is available at: www.ccacoalition.org

The Dominican Republic is a CCAC State Partner. The government of the Dominican Republic has received technical support in the development of SLCP emission inventories and mitigation assessment using the LEAP tool. The Dominican Republic has consistently showed commitments through the CCAC national planning support, acknowledging the importance of actions on SLCPs and local air pollution and health benefits from climate change action in its 2021 NDC. They have also committed to highlight SLCPs in the 2025 updated NDC. In 2021, Dominican Republic developed a first National Emission Inventory of SLCPs, which quantified emissions of SLCPs, air pollutants and GHGs using a consistent methodology.

The Dominican Republic through its National Council for Climate Change and Clean Development Mechanism (NCCCCDM) has requested support from the CCAC to support Stage 2 of the CCAC planning process on coordinating national SLCP planning, policy, and implementation efforts, and supporting the monitoring and evaluation of SLCP planning and implementation. (More information on the CCAC planning process can be found here: https://bit.ly/CCAC-planning). This request is also in line with the priorities of the on-going CCAC regional SICA project that aims to develop an integrated Regional Programme on Air Quality, Climate Change and Health for Central America to strengthen governance mechanisms, foster high-level political commitment and maximize the benefits of related regional and national strategies in the region.

The CCAC is therefore seeking a National SLCP Expert to strengthen the capacity of the Dominican Republic’s National Council for Climate Change and Clean Development Mechanism (NCCCCDM) and Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources to coordinate national SLCP planning, policy, and implementation efforts aligned with NDC implementation.

The CCAC National SLCP Expert will work in close collaboration with the CCAC Secretariat team and focal points at the National Council for Climate Change and Clean Development Mechanism (NCCCCDM) and Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources to strengthen buy-in across the government, and to advance implementation, financing, and monitoring of a SLCP mitigation plan/strategy. The CCAC National SLCP Expert will also be responsible for fostering inter-ministerial collaboration across governments and engaging important stakeholders at the national level to effectively integrate SLCPs into national planning and to support implementation strategies.

Specific responsibilities:

1. Secure participation and buy-in from across government to develop/implement a National SLCP Strategy, including endorsement at high political level.
2. Strengthen the government’s capacity for developing and implementing SLCP mitigation actions, based on the CCAC’s integrated approach to climate change and air pollution reduction.
3. Integrate SLCP mitigation actions into relevant national processes, plans and strategies at national and sub-national level; including the possibility of having calculations SLCP emissions in the MRV national systems.
4. Propose national and international funding opportunities for implementation of National SLCP Strategy.
5. Raise awareness on SLCP at national/sub-national level
6. Ensure the Dominican Republic is an active CCAC State Partner and is leveraging benefits from the CCAC partnership (e.g., best practices shared, technical assistance, funding, bilateral partnerships, etc).
7. Calculate reductions in SLCP of mitigation measures that have been reported in the NDC RD 2020, and mitigation measures that have emerged after 2020, including the development of SLCP emission projections and mitigation assessments of these measures in coordination with the assigned implementer and involved sectors.
8. Support the coordination of the development of a national methane roadmap in coordination with the assigned implementer
