Full Time
Posted 2 years ago

C. Objectives and Scope of Work


The Climate Change Mitigation Expert will work with UNDP and its partners under the ACE Project, and collaborate/complement with other UNDP consultants/experts, in the performance of his/her duties towards the delivery of the following outputs. The Climate Change Mitigation Expert will have specific expertise in measuring emissions from various industries and circular economy approaches, and knowledge on the use of tools to estimate GHG reductions from avoidance arising from reduced production of plastics, use of alternative materials, and reduction in demand for materials due to recycling (that does not emit GHGs), reduced consumption, and other strategies.

  • Modelling of GHG emissions for key circular economy sectors
  • Undertake a desktop review of key industry reports in order to make an analysis of historical GHG emissions and on the basis of which come up with projected GHG emissions, identifying major emission drivers
  • Develop a GHG emissions scenario analysis comparing the business-as-usual or linear economy scenario with a circular economy scenario, establishing the mitigation potential of circular economy (i.e. GHG emissions reduction/avoidance required per sector to fulfill the 75 percent target for the year 2030 as outlined in the Philippine Nationally Determined Contribution)
  • Modelling of GHG emissions must include an analysis of the carbon footprint (CF) and material footprint (MF) of key circular economy sectors along the value chain, and must present recommendations in terms of mitigation strategies
  • Key sectors to be covered at the least are the following:
  1. buildings
  2. plastics
  3. food and beverage
  4. textile
  5. electronics
  6. healthcare
  7. cities
  • Calculation of GHG emissions of the ACE Project
  • Develop a methodology and monitoring tool for tracking the climate change mitigation indicators and targets of the ACE Project
  • Compute the GHG emissions, emissions reduction/avoidance of the various activities of the ACE Project

The Climate Change Mitigation Expert will consult UNDP and its relevant partners in the preparation of the above-mentioned outputs and will make a presentation of these outputs to them for comments/revisions and finalization.

*The person-days efforts are just estimation, consultants can propose as per their understanding of the requirement.


E. Institutional Arrangements 

  1. The Japan Supplemental Budget (JSB)-funded Accelerating NDC through Circular Economy is implemented by UNDP Philippines through a whole-of-country office approach, spearheaded by the Climate Action Programme Team and the Impact Advisory Team (IAT).
  1. The ACE Project Manager and Climate Action Programme Team Leader will jointly review the outputs of the consultant, in coordination with the Impact Advisory Team and Climate Action Programme Team.
  1. The Consultant is also expected to collaborate with other UNDP teams aside from the aforementioned ones, particularly the Peace Team on the work to be done in Cotabato City.
  1. The Consultant is expected to have his/her own provisions for workspace, communication equipment including laptop and mobile phone.  

F. Duration of Work 

It is estimated that the work of the Consultant shall involve a total of 42 days from September 2022 to March 2023. At least 1 week will be allotted for Designated authorities to review outputs, provide feedback, and certify approval and acceptance of outputs.

G. Duty Station 

The consultant is home-based, but may be requested by UNDP to report to the office for specific meetings and activities. Should there be any travel, the mission would be agreed with the designated authorities in advance and the travel cost would be at actual as in line with UNDP policy.

Scope of Price Proposal and Schedule of Payments 


  1. The Consultant should send the financial proposal based on a lump-sum amount for the delivery of the outputs identified below. The total amount quoted shall be “all inclusive” (professional daily fees X number of days, communications, etc.) that could possibly be incurred by the Consultant should be factored into the final amount submitted in the proposal. Travel, as deemed relevant by UNDP and compliant with government guidelines on community quarantine, will be arranged and paid for by UNDP and should not be included in the financial proposal.
  2. Medical/health insurance must be purchased by the individual at his/her own expense, and upon award of contract, the Contractor must be ready to submit proof of insurance valid during contract duration
  3. The contract price will be fixed output-based price. Any deviations from the output and timeline will be agreed upon between the Contractor and UNDP.
  4. Payments will be done upon satisfactory completion of the delivery by target due dates. Outputs will be certified by the ACE Project Manager and Climate Action Programme Team Leader prior to release of payments.
