Description

As part of achieving the Climate Resilient Green Economy Strategy’s goals for the forest sector, targets set in the NFSDP and REDD+ Implementation Plan, the Environment, Forest and Climate Change Commission (EFCCC) has set up a Forest Sector Transformation Unit (FSTU). 
 
The FSTU is established to:
 
a) Build and scale-up a pipeline of bankable, transformational, high-value and innovative forestry programs/projects;  
 
b) Support the implementation of initiatives through targeted, hands-on support to achieve large-scale success, maintain momentum and generate buy-in; 
 
c) Provide evidence-based policy analysis and recommendations to the Commission, partners and stakeholders.
 
To achieve the above-mentioned objectives, the EFCC through the UNDP would like to recruit a Technical Advisor (TA). The Technical Adviser is expected to work with the REDD+ Investment Programme Team (composed of the FSTU, afforestation/reforestation and reducing deforestation and forest degradation) and Forest Sector Directorates in the EFCCC. The incumbent will primarily focus on driving the development of innovative forestry projects and resource mobilization.    
 
The Technical Adviser needs to be strong in program/project proposal development, strategy formulation and solving technical problems. The Advisor will provide support in designing and implementing programs; including innovations, introduction of best practices (incubation of new project ideas) and developing partnerships with the private sector and civil society. An important element of the role is to transfer knowledge and skills to the FSTU staff.
