JOB ANNOUNCEMENT

Job announcement

The GCF Readiness and Support Project Green, Resilient Recovery in Energy and Agriculture sectors in Tajikistan will contribute to green recovery in two priority climate change sectors, which are also of key importance to rural communities and livelihoods, i.e. energy and agriculture. The project is implemented by Committee for Environmental protection under the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan (CoEP).

The project has three objectives:

1.     Development of the two National strategies/programs on green resilient recovery in agriculture and energy sectors with a focus on opportunities for the most vulnerable rural communities. The strategies will complement the currently elaborated NAP and will highlight measures to restore the adaptive capacities following the pandemic and propose the recovery measures through the utilization of green and climate-smart technologies in both sectors. Carbon credit market and subsidy schemes at the national level will be considered as recovery measures for supporting energy efficiency schemes and adaptation in agriculture in rural areas.

2.     Develop recommendations and market models for the creation of carbon trading as part of green recovery measures in the energy and agriculture sectors.

3.     Pipeline development to support the implementation of NCCAS and enhance adaptive capacities and recovery following the pandemic, including the development of two Green Climate Fund Concept Notes (in the agriculture and energy sectors) that will target rural communities and assist with the development of low-carbon and climate-resilient technologies.

Projects' main beneficiaries are families and farmers living in rural areas, other beneficiaries include private companies in the energy sector, etc.

The Committee for Environmental protection under the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan is looking for experts to ensure expert tasks in the frame of the above-mentioned projects.
