National Consultant to undertake REDD+ financing mapping assessment within the agricultural sector and support to PNG’s REDD+ Investment Plan development

UNDP Country Office - PAPUA NEW GUINEA | Published April 19, 2017  -  Deadline May 26, 2017

Papua New Guinea (PNG) has been one of the fastest growing economies globally this century with average growth rates above 6% . This rapid growth has been driven primarily by the expansion of foreign investment within the natural gas sector and high prices for PNG’s central exports many of which are transported to rapidly growing Asian economies. This growth has built on a long history of natural resources being at the centre of the PNG economy with exports and employment dominated by mining, natural gas, logging and agriculture. While this rapid growth has delivered significant changes in PNG’s main urban areas and those communities benefiting directly from foreign investment, the country still faces significant challenges in meeting the objectives of Vision 2050 and in providing development opportunities for all while also maintaining its natural environment.Over 85% of the nation’s 7.3m population are based in rural areas and rely primarily on subsistence agriculture for survival and have limited access to health centres, education or broader development opportunities. Falling commodity prices since 2012 have also left the country facing significant economic challenges despite ongoing growth.PNG has a significant area of intact tropical forest covering 77.8% of the country’s 46.9m ha of land. Together with the forest of West Papua (Island of New Guinea) they represent one of the largest areas of intact tropical forest in the world. PNG’s forests are also highly diverse, including 14 distinct forest types, with carbon-rich low altitude tropical forest constituting over 50% of forest area.The country’s forests are critical to the livelihoods and economy of the country. The ecosystem services forests provide help to maintain access to water and suitable agricultural land for PNG’s predominantly rural population as well as helping to protect key infrastructure, people and crops from flash flooding and landslides. Forests also play a direct role in supporting the livelihoods or rural communities with more than 500 species of wild growing plants identified as being used for food and the value of annual bush meat consumption estimated to be equivalent to $26million if alternative meats had to be sourced .These economic values sit alongside the deep social and cultural values attributed to forests across PNG. With over 90% of the land area under customary land ownership, PNG’s forests are at the center of the cultural identity of many communities.Since 2005, PNG has been at the forefront of intergovernmental negotiations under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to develop an international mechanism to compensate developing countries for reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+). To be eligible to receive results-based finance for REDD+ results-based actions under the UNFCCC, PNG will have to develop the following elements:A National Strategy or Action Plan;A national forest reference emission level and/or forest reference level;A robust and transparent national forest monitoring system for the monitoring and reporting of the REDD + activities;A system for providing information on how the safeguards on local community and forest biodiversity are being addressed and respected throughout the implementation of the REDD+ activities while respecting sovereignty.The Government of Papua New Guinea is receiving international support from a number of bilateral and multilateral sources to prepare the country for implementing REDD+ under the UNFCCC, including through readiness support from the World Bank’s Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF), which is being delivered by UNDP.In 2016-2017, with the support of UNDP/FCPF project, a National REDD+ Strategy (NRS) was developed and submitted to the Government of PNG for review and endorsement. The NRS marks a major milestone in PNG’s transition from the REDD+ Readiness Phase to REDD+ implementation.The NRS was developed over an 18-month period through a process of structured consultation and awareness raising with key stakeholders from government agencies, civil society and the private sector. It builds on the experiences of early REDD+ readiness activities in PNG, including the development of pilot activities, and the ongoing assessment and analysis work that has focused on key areas of action on REDD+ including reviews of forest sector financing, commercial agricultural development, stakeholder engagement processes and land use mapping. Much of this work was compiled in an Issues and Options Paper for REDD+ in PNG, which set out the key decision and action areas for REDD+ in PNG and was circulated widely for consultation, the feedback from which was central to creating the NRS .PNG is still at an early stage of its REDD+ development process. Thus, while the NRS marks a critical step in the nation’s REDD+ development process further action is needed to ensure that the NRS is effectively financed, that proposed policies and measures are developed and tested, and that long term sustainable financing and management systems are in place.To achieve this the NRS will be supported by a REDD+ Finance and Investment Plan (RFIP), which will provide a detailed breakdown of activities to be undertaken in the coming five years, including clear budgets and approaches to financing.Prior to the development of the RFIP, it is critical to assess current land use investment trends and identify opportunities to promote inter-sectoral planning, mainstream REDD+ objectives in national and sub-national planning and budgeting, better capture environmental outcomes in policy and decision-making processes, fill existing knowledge and finance gaps, and reinforce coherence between national and sub-national policy implementation.Initial scoping work on Forest Sector Finance (through FCPF) and conservation finance (through GEF) has been conducted. The assessment of the forest sector highlighted the importance but also the complexities of finance within the sector with estimates indicating that forestry industries contribute approximately $200million to the economy through payment of 19 levies, two royalties and an export tax. Further work is now needed to review how this finance is utilised as well as how government finances can further support the development of a robust and environmentally sustainable forest sector in PNG. The current assessment will help move this forward while also linking the forest sector with other key sectors that are impacting forest cover (most specifically agriculture) as well as the financing of those institutions that are relevant to decision making on and the protection of forests.�Scope of WorkUnder overall guidance of International Consultant on REDD+ Financial Mapping Assessment and in close collaboration with the team of experts, a National Consultant will be responsible for mapping out the existing and potential sources of finance within the agriculture sector for REDD+ implementation in PNG (including the identification of “REDD+-relevant” financing, including from domestic government budget and private sector) and identify the scale of finance necessary for the development of REDD+ Investment plan, particularly to support the integration of various land uses, REDD+ and climate-smart objectives in national, provincial planning and budgeting in PNG.The detailed scope and approach of work will be proposed by the National Consultant as part of the inception report. The assignment will build on the identification and quantification of relevant agricultural financial flows conducted at the national level as part of the elaboration of the resource mobilization framework of the national REDD+ investment plan.The assignment will provide a deep-dive analysis into agricultural financial flows at the national level, and at the sub-national level in two pilot provinces: Madang and East New Britain (ENB). The approach taken will build on the work and results of multiple other assessments and will ensure consistency with the climate-relevant tracking approach developed.The National Consultant will take necessary actions under this assignment, while working in close coordination and consultation with the team of consultants on the development of PNG’s REDD+ Investment Plan (RIP), Government, UNDP/FCPF project staff and the UNDP regional technical advisor. Key elements of the assignment will include:Under overall guidance of International Consultant, the first task will be to clearly define the proposed scope of work and identify the levels of agricultural data assessment that is feasible within the existing time frame.It is anticipated that this will review and address the proposed scope, which is:Provide assistance to International Consultant in the assessment of the budgetary process in PNG, identifying key actors, agencies, ministries involved in the budgeting process, as well as an overview of the budget coding system in PNG and consistency with the objectives of the assignment;Assist International Consultant to collect and assess international donor and private sector financial flows within the agricultural and land-use sectors and the breakdown of financing between national and subnational entities;In close partnership with the team of consultants on the development of REDD+ Investment Plan, participate in the collection and processing of agricultural data for REDD+ Investment Plan development;Review of government spending and break down of expenditures between Department of Agriculture, relevant commodity boards, the FPDA, NARI and other relevant institutions and how this spending is broken down by areas of technical work;Public financing flows (i.e. government funds, including staff salaries and funded policy instruments for the agricultural sector (e.g. fiscal policies, taxes, levies, etc.)) linked to the main drivers of deforestation and forest degradation; and (existing and potential) finance for the implementation of policies and measures (PAMs) to address these drivers (as set out in PNG’s National REDD+ Strategy);The level revenue through taxation, levies and other fees that flows that are provided by agricultural sector;A review of existing planning frameworks influencing agricultural investments at the national and subnational levels, including private sector investment related to development of infrastructure;A detailed assessment of financial flows within agricultural sector in two target provinces, East New Britain and Madang;An assessment of existing and potential climate finance within REDD+ relevant areas including review of national definitions for REDD+, and REDD+ relevant activities to identify areas that might be considered REDD+ aligned (or REDD+ ‘unaligned’);An assessment of the existing financial management structures within the agricultural sector for the above noted finances;A definition of a methodological approach for:Ensuring necessary support from national and subnational stakeholders;Collecting quantitative and qualitative data from the domestic budget, ODA and, to the extent possible, private sector in forest sector;Ensuring data consistency and avoiding double counting;Developing a typology for agricultural investments, consistent with and related to national climate change and REDD+ policy frameworks;Managing data in a spreadsheet and coding according to relevant categories for the analysis.Opportunities to re-direct finance flows that are supporting activities linked to deforestation and forest degradation (e.g. alterations of fiscal frameworks);Private sector financing sources: including finance for the implementation of sustainable production systems, e.g. certification schemes for agricultural (“forest friendly”) commodities and sustainable timber;The results of the assessment presented in infographics which will be developed by the International Consultant to support easy dissemination to stakeholders. One example of infographics which is useful to illustrate financial flows is the landscape of finance tool (see Annex 1 for a generic example);Draw relevant conclusions and recommendations for the national and sub-national governments in Madang and ENB and their financial partners, with regard (but not limited) to:The amount of agricultural investment contributing to REDD+/climate-smart objectives in PNG, with a deep-dive into Madang and ENB;Gaps between current agricultural finance flows and needs, both in terms of volumes and activities being financed;Potential barriers identified in financial flows at national and sub-national level;Opportunities for redirecting public agricultural finance to REDD+/REDD+-relevant initiatives;Recommendations for financing the National REDD+ Strategy and selected policies and measures in PNG, including Madang and ENB;Opportunities for public finance to support private REDD+-relevant investments in PNG, including in Madang and ENB;Opportunities and needs to improve coherence and coordination between national and subnational level agricultural spending.Scope of price proposal and schedule of paymentsIn accordance with UNDP IC guidelines, the proposal must include “Lump Sum Amount” approach which is closely linked to deliverables.

Papua New Guinea (PNG) has one of the most significant areas of largely-intact tropical forest in the world, although these forests appear to be facing acute and imminent threats. Forests are also a vital resource for the local population particularly in the remote rural areas of PNG, providing food, fibre, building materials, and support a variety of wildlife and ecosystem services.A mechanism for Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) being developed through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) provides an opportunity to support PNG’s efforts to reduce levels of deforestation and help to maintain and protect its natural forest. PNG has been a leading proponent of REDD+ at the international level, and has made significant progress towards developing the capacity to engage in an international mechanism on REDD+. This progress has initially been supported by the UN-REDD Programme and is now being aided by the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) through a project that will run until the end of 2020.Increases in land clearance for agriculture are likely to increase in a country with population growth of over 2%, increasing global demand for agricultural commodities and only 4% of land area currently dedicated to agriculture when an estimated 30% is considered suitable for agriculture. Agriculture is a mainstay of the PNG economy and thus represents an important area for economic growth and stability. The sector accounted for 19% of total exports and 25% of GDP in 2010, as well as forming a major part of rural economy on which 80% of the population directly depend. As such there is a need to ensure that continued agricultural development not only supports economic growth and poverty alleviation, but is also socially and environmentally sustainable. A report on sustainable commodity production in PNG, commissioned by FCPF in 2016, found that sustainable agricultural commodities production can provide strong benefits for PNG's people, economy and the environment by increasing employment, protecting the environment and associated livelihoods and health benefits, helping to secure and diversify the exports market, and securing foreign exchange.Palm oil is the primary source of agricultural export revenue in the country and is likely to have the most impact on forest cover change in the short to medium term due to its currently unregulated expansion. It is therefore proposed that PNG’s National REDD+ strategy which was endorsed by the Government of PNG in May 2017, will focus its efforts on abating the impacts of this sector.The sustainable commodities assessment which was carried out in 2016 set out two recommendations:development of a national policy for sustainable palm oil;establishment of a multi-stakeholder PNG Palm Oil Platform (PNGPOP).In 2017, the FCPF project conducted a follow up assignment to take stock of the above recommendations and prepare a list of policy options through rigorous multi-stakeholder consultations and a high-level meeting. The participants of the high-level meeting agreed to the following vision for the palm oil sector: “To position PNG as the global leader for sustainable palm oil production, by producing palm oil in a way that sustains and advances economic growth, is respectful to the environment and landowner rights, yields social benefits and improves PNG’s market competiveness for its primary agricultural export”.Thus, as a way forward, there is a need to establish PNGPOP to strengthen smallholders’ capacity through increased productivity, improve environmental management, support government strategies to develop the agricultural sector, protect forests, enhance biodiversity conservation, mitigate and monitor greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, facilitate social responsibility through empowering local communities and enhance mediation systems, identify standards for wider acceptance, and improve market access in the country and abroad.SCOPE OF WORKUnder the overall supervision of the FCPF Chief Technical Advisor (CTA), the Consultant will be responsible for providing support in the initial set up of the PNGPOP and developing a Statement of Intent on sustainable development of the oil palm sector in PNG. The incumbent will take conceptual leadership of the assignment but will work closely with a team of national consultants, the Climate Change and Development Authority (CCDA), the Department of Agriculture and Livestock (DAL), and other key government bodies as well the Private Sector. The work will be supported by technical advice from the FCPF CTA and the UNDP Regional Hub in Bangkok and will also link with other activities related to REDD+ development in PNG of which the consultant will need to remain cognisant.Key elements of the assessment will include:A) Develop a Statement of Intent for PNG’s Sustainable Palm Oil SectorReview the national legislation and policies and develop a framework for the development Sustainable Palm Oil Policy;Support the government to establish a Task Force with representatives from government, civil society and the private sector to develop the Statement of Intent;Review and incorporate recommendations based on the Marrakesh Declaration on the sustainable development of the oil palm sector and prepare a final draft for review and adoption by the Ministry of Agriculture;Support the government to convene a Task Force Meeting to discuss and agree on the Statement of Intent.B) Support the establishment of PNG's first multi-stakeholder palm oil platform (PNGPOP)The UNDP PNG Country Office is currently recruiting two national staff - a Platform Coordinator and a Technical Specialist for the PNGPOP. The objective of the platform is to create a multi-stakeholder national action plan for the long-term sustainability of palm oil, to help monitor and adopt actions that address the root causes limiting the sustainability of the PNG palm oil sector as well as harmonise government policies to ensure a strong and coherent legal framework for the sustainability of PNG palm oil production. It will also provide the government of PNG with an important opportunity to translate the STaRS long term development strategy into practice, build a new image for the sector, and position the country as a global leader for sustainable palm oil production. Ultimately, it will enable collective agreement on sustainable and systemic solutions for the production of palm oil that is respectful for the environment, expands social benefits and improves PNG's market competitiveness for its primary agricultural export.The Consultant is expected to support the inception of the PNGPOP, particularly:To identify and support the establishment of a coordination and management structure for the implementation of the platform and its relationship with the FCPF REDD+ project as well as broader REDD+ coordination in PNG through CCDA;To deliver capacity building support to the platform staff;To maintain constructive relations with key stakeholders, including Government institutions, donors, companies and NGO partners, informing them and consulting with them as appropriate regarding strategic decisions, and, in discussion with the international and national technical advisors, promoting the balanced participation of different Government entities in platform activities and benefits;To provide support to UNDP in the preparation of annual and semi-annual reports, as appropriate, incorporating inputs provided by project contractors in relation to each of the PNGPOP annual work plan and road map;To establish and implement a framework for monitoring and evaluating the platform’s implementation;To review quarterly work plans and provide recommendations to UNDP regarding their approval or, where necessary, modification prior to approval.EXPECTED OUTPUTS/DELIVERABLESThe international expert will, in collaboration with a national expert, deliver the following outputs:

PROJECT DESCRIPTIONPapua New Guinea (PNG) has one of the most significant areas of largely-intact tropical forest in the world, although these forests appear to be facing acute and imminent threats. Forests are also a vital resource for the local population particularly in the remote rural areas of PNG, providing food, fibre, building materials, and support a variety of wildlife and ecosystem services.A mechanism for Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) being developed through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) provides an opportunity to support PNG’s efforts to reduce levels of deforestation and help to maintain and protect its natural forest. PNG has been a leading proponent of REDD+ at the international level and has made considerable progress towards developing the capacity to engage in an international mechanism on REDD+. This progress has initially been supported by the UN-REDD Programme and is now being aided by the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) through a project that will run until the end of 2020.However, agricultural expansion poses a threat to areas of forested land in PNG. Agriculture is a mainstay of the PNG economy and thus represents a key area for economic growth and stability. The sector accounted for 19% of total exports and 25% of GDP in 2010, as well as forming a major part of rural economy on which 80% of the population directly depend. increases in land clearance for agriculture are likely to increase in a country with population growth of over 2%, increasing global demand for agricultural commodities and only 4% of land area currently dedicated to agriculture when an estimated 30% is considered suitable for agriculture.A report on sustainable commodity production in PNG, commissioned by FCPF in 2016, found that sustainable agricultural commodities production can provide strong benefits for PNG's people, economy and the environment by increasing employment, protecting the environment and associated livelihoods and health benefits, helping to secure and diversify the exports market, and securing foreign exchange.In particular, the palm oil sector is one in which the UNDP can support the PNG with a positive trajectory towards sustainable palm oil production. Palm oil is the primary source of agricultural export revenue in the country and is likely to have the most impact on forest cover change in the short to medium term due to its currently unregulated expansion. It is therefore proposed that PNG’s National REDD+ strategy which was endorsed by the Government of PNG in May 2017, will focus its efforts on abating the impacts of this sector.The sustainable commodities assessment which was carried out in 2016 set out two recommendations:development of a national policy for sustainable palm oil;establishment of a multi-stakeholder PNG Palm Oil Platform (PNGPOP).In 2017, the FCPF project conducted a follow up assignment to take stock of the above recommendations and prepare a list of policy options through rigorous multi-stakeholder consultations and a high-level meeting.

Papua New Guinea (PNG) has been one of the fastest growing economies globally this century with average growth rates above 6%[1]. This rapid growth has been driven primarily by the expansion of foreign investment within the natural gas sector and high prices for PNG’s central exports many of which are transported to rapidly growing Asian economies. This growth has built on a long history of natural resources being at the centre of the PNG economy with exports and employment dominated by mining, natural gas, logging and agriculture. While this rapid growth has delivered significant changes in PNG’s main urban areas and those communities benefiting directly from foreign investment, the country still faces significant challenges in meeting the objectives of Vision 2050 and in providing development opportunities for all while also maintaining its natural environment.Over 85% of the nation’s 7.3m population are based in rural areas and rely primarily on subsistence agriculture for survival and have limited access to health centres, education or broader development opportunities. Falling commodity prices since 2012 have also left the country facing significant economic challenges despite ongoing growth.Since 2005, PNG has been at the forefront of intergovernmental negotiations under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to develop an international mechanism to compensate developing countries for reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+). To be eligible to receive results-based finance for REDD+ results-based actions under the UNFCCC, PNG will have to develop the following elements:A National Strategy or Action Plan;A national forest reference emission level and/or forest reference level;A robust and transparent national forest monitoring system for the monitoring and reporting of the REDD + activities;A system for providing information on how the safeguards on local community and forest biodiversity are being addressed and respected throughout the implementation of the REDD+ activities while respecting sovereignty.In 2016-2017, with the support of UNDP/FCPF project, a National REDD+ Strategy (NRS) was developed and submitted to the Government of PNG for review and endorsement. The NRS marks a major milestone in PNG’s transition from the REDD+ Readiness Phase to REDD+ implementation.While the NRS marks a critical step in the nation’s REDD+ development process further action is needed to ensure that the NRS is effectively financed, that proposed policies and measures are developed and tested, and that long term sustainable financing and management systems are in place.To achieve this the NRS will be supported by a REDD+ Finance and Investment Plan (RFIP), which will provide a detailed breakdown of activities to be undertaken in the coming five years, including clear budgets and approaches to financing.In the PNG’s National REDD+ Strategy different REDD+ options of where and how to implement REDD+ activities involve different costs and bring different combinations of carbon stocks, biodiversity benefits and other ecosystem services. These benefits can have high economic values attached to them through their role in underpinning the production of goods and services that are valued by humans and that underpin local livelihoods and national economies. But often their values are not visible as these benefits do not directly enter markets and thus do not have a financial value (as defined by a market price) attached to them. Valuing forest benefits can help to understand the overall economic importance of REDD+ options and to assess economic trade-offs with other land use options. It is a means to mainstream forest benefits besides carbon into REDD+ strategy and RFIP and wider land use planning.Thus, the current economic assessment will help move forward to identify the costs of implementing all the actions in the RFIP as well as informing REDD+ planning for future interventions in PNG.

Falling commodity prices since 2012 have also left the country facing significant economic challenges despite ongoing growth.PNG has a significant area of intact tropical forest covering 77.8% of the country’s 46.9m ha of land. Together with the forest of West Papua (Island of New Guinea) they represent one of the largest areas of intact tropical forest in the world. These forests are critical to the livelihoods and economy of the country and a commercial logging industry has for a long period been a central part of the economy.The Government of Papua New Guinea (GoPNG) has set ambitious goals for strengthening and changing the nature of this industry including:a ban on all round log exports by 2020 andthe expansion of planted forests to cover 800,000ha by 2050These are to be achieved while also increasing the contribution of commercial logging to the domestic economy. Efforts to achieve these targets will need to address significant challenges linked to the availability of land and the level of private sector interest in investing in either area.At the same time the government of PNG, with support from the World Bank’s Forest Carbon Partnership Facility, implemented by Climate Change and Developed Authority with support of UNDP, has developed a National REDD+ Strategy to guide the country’s approach to addressing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from deforestation and forest degradation – over 75% of which historically come from commercial logging[2].The current assignment is intended to work with the PNG Forest Authority (PNGFA) as well as key stakeholders in the private sector, land owning communities and civil society to identify how best to develop a pathway to a stronger forest industry in PNG in line with government targets while also helping to reduce deforestation and forest degradation.For this purpose, FCPF REDD+ Readiness Project is seeking a team of consultants such as International Team Leader, National Forest Sector Specialist, International Scenario Analysis Consultant and National Private Sector Consultant to support PNGFA in the development of a short to medium term strategy to develop a sustainable low emissions forest sector that contributes effectively to GDP and delivers long term development benefits to communities and PNG more broadly.It is anticipated that this objective will be achieved through effective engagement of government and private sector actors in identifying how best to attract and sustain long term private sector investment in PNG’s forest sector.This Terms of Reference is developed for National Private Sector Consultant who will act as the key link between the team of consultants and key private sector actors in the country. [1] World Bank Data.

PROJECT DESCRIPTIONPapua New Guinea (PNG) has one of the most significant areas of largely-intact tropical forest in the world, although these forests appear to be facing acute and imminent threats. Forests are also a vital resource for the local population particularly in the remote rural areas of PNG, providing food, fibre, building materials, and support a variety of wildlife and ecosystem services.A mechanism for Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) being developed through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) provides an opportunity to support PNG’s efforts to reduce levels of deforestation and help to maintain and protect its natural forest. PNG has been a leading proponent of REDD+ at the international level, and has made significant progress towards developing the capacity to engage in an international mechanism on REDD+. This progress has initially been supported by the UN-REDD Programme and is now being aided by the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) through a project that will run until the end of 2020.Increases in land clearance for agriculture are likely to increase in a country with population growth of over 2%, increasing global demand for agricultural commodities and only 4% of land area currently dedicated to agriculture when an estimated 30% is considered suitable for agriculture. Agriculture is a mainstay of the PNG economy and thus represents an important area for economic growth and stability. The sector accounted for 19% of total exports and 25% of GDP in 2010, as well as forming a major part of rural economy on which 80% of the population directly depend. As such there is a need to ensure that continued agricultural development not only supports economic growth and poverty alleviation, but is also socially and environmentally sustainable. A report on sustainable commodity production in PNG, commissioned by FCPF in 2016, found that sustainable agricultural commodities production can provide strong benefits for PNG's people, economy and the environment by increasing employment, protecting the environment and associated livelihoods and health benefits, helping to secure and diversify the exports market, and securing foreign exchange.Palm oil is the primary source of agricultural export revenue in the country and is likely to have the most impact on forest cover change in the short to medium term due to its currently unregulated expansion. It is therefore proposed that PNG’s National REDD+ strategy, which was endorsed by the Government of PNG in May 2017, will focus its efforts on abating the impacts of this sector.The sustainable commodities assessment, which was carried out in 2016 set out two recommendations:development of a national policy for sustainable palm oil;establishment of a multi-stakeholder PNG Palm Oil Platform (PNGPOP).In 2017, the FCPF project conducted a follow up assignment to take stock of the above recommendations and prepare a list of policy options through rigorous multi-stakeholder consultations and a high-level meeting. The participants of the high-level meeting agreed to the following vision for the palm oil sector:“To position PNG as the global leader for sustainable palm oil production, by producing palm oil in a way that sustains and advances economic growth, is respectful to the environment and landowner rights, yields social benefits and improves PNG’s market competitiveness for its primary agricultural export”.Thus, as a way forward, there is a need to establish PNGPOP to strengthen smallholders’ capacity through increased productivity, improved environmental management, support to government strategies to develop the agricultural sector, protect forests, enhance biodiversity conservation, mitigate and monitor greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, facilitated social responsibility through empowering local communities and enhanced mediation systems, identification of standards for wider acceptance, and improved market access in the country and abroad.Communications has an important role to play in this endeavour. Strategic, well-planned and appropriately resourced communications will enable the consistent delivery of information to targeted groups, fostering on-going buy-in and growing support and momentum for the aims and objectives of PNGPOP. Strategic communications will also be important in positioning sustainable palm oil production as a national benefit, encouraging all aspects of society as well as the international community to support the development of this industry in a way that allows for economic benefits, while also protecting PNG’s globally unique natural heritage. SCOPE OF WORKUnder the overall supervision of the FCPF Chief Technical Advisor (CTA), the Consultant will be responsible for developing a three-year communications strategy and a detailed implementation plan for year one. This will include working with the designated communications officer to help generate visibility around the PNGPOP launch and providing advice on the production of key communications tools in year one. Key elements of the work will include:Undertake research to inform the development of a strategic communications strategy The first phase of the assignment will involve conducting desk reviews, in-depth interviews with representatives from key stakeholder and targeted groups, broader surveys and workshop/s, both in PNG and remotely. The purpose is to gain consensus on a vision and key goals for the communications strategy; and to develop an in-depth understanding of key stakeholders and targeted groups, their information needs and the potential roles they could play in the successful delivery of a communications strategy. The research would also identify communications opportunities, especially where the traditional and social media is concerned, as well as the existing communications assets, gaps and most effective channels. Specifically, the consultant will:In close consultation with key players, identify and articulate an overarching vision, principles and goals for the PNGPOP communications strategy.

The impact of climate change-related hazards in Papua New Guinea (PNG) has been increasing in intensity and frequency. Further impacts from climate change include the loss of food gardens due to extensive flooding (both in coastal and riverine areas) combined with extended periods of drought. The rising sea level is causing some of PNG‘s islands to be gradually submerged and salt water intrusion is affecting groundwater particularly in the islands and in coastal areas, threatening domestic water supplies and agriculture. With the onset and multitude of climate change impacts, the country‘s economy, environment and people are becoming more vulnerable and are at risk of not meeting basic human development needs. Thus climate change puts at risk the achievement of the goals set out in PNG‘s major development plans. Flooding in the coastal areas is one of the most important climate change related hazards in the North Coast and the Islands Region as settlements are usually located in the coasts, particularly the provincial capitals of East Sepik (Wewak), Madang (Madang), Morobe (Lae), Northern and New Ireland Province. Similarly, in the hinterland areas, inland flooding is the most pressing hazard with the largest potential for wide-spread damage. The project seeks to enhance the capacity of various agencies involved in inland and coastal flooding by evaluating, selecting and implementing various options with the view of establishing an integrated Early Warning System for inland and coastal flooding. To this end, UNDP invites qualified and eligible Consultancy firms/ entities to submit offers on or before the herewith indicated deadline.
