Recruitment Conof International Consulting Firm GEF/LDCF Climate Change Adaptation

UNDP Country Office - GUINEA-BISSAU | Published March 7, 2017  -  Deadline March 31, 2017

Please find below responses to questions raised during our Pre-Proposal conference.Question1: The TOR defines the expected duration of the assignment for 20 person weeks. We are not sure how to interpret this number, but we are assuming that, in principle, this means 5 working days per week x 20 weeks = 100 days in total. If this is correct, does this mean that the total sum of expected working days for all of the experts foreseen in the TOR (tallying 8 national and international consultants), together, should not exceed 100 working days? The 20 person weeks is the package of time the company, as group of individuals, is supposed to dedicate to this assignment and not the individuals themselves. It should read company week. So this means that the total time of the 8 consultants can go beyond 20 person weeks, but cannot also be 20 weeks multiply by 8.Question 2: If the total expected intensity effort is 100 working days to be divided among all eight experts, and if the bidder considers that this is not enough to prepare the required products (given the project’s complexity and the size of the team suggested), would the UNDP Country Office Bissau accept a proposal that considers: (Option A) a more adequate intensity of effort, or (Option B) a lump-sum all-inclusive proposal that does not specify the total number of days? Both options are acceptableQuestion 3: In case the bidder considers that the number of experts, profiles and tasks of PPG Team members can be optimized in different ways for achieving the goals, would the UNDP Country Office Bissau accept a proposal that proposes this optimization? We will consider the proposition and if it appears that it is an efficient way for achieving the objectives of this assignment, we will accept it.Question 4: Given the short time frame for application, it is possible that we may not find suitable national experts on time for composing the team. Given this possible gap in local capacity, will the UNDP Country Office Bissau allow the bidder to hire, one case or another, experts from neighboring countries (say, from Senegal or Cape Verde) in lieu of Bissau-Guinean nationals? YesPlease find below the questions for clarification that could'nt be answered during the conference:- Taking into account that we only have 2 weeks to submit the proposal and that we need to find local experts, can the deadline be extended? Yes the deadline can be extended for 5 working days. But we suggest also the requestor to consider experts from neighboring countries such as Senegal, Cabo Verde, Guinea, Gambia, etc….- 20 person/week for the total effort seems very little compared to what's asked for, can it be increased? The 20 person weeks is the package of time the company, as group of individuals, is supposed to dedicate to this assignment and not the individuals themselves. It should read company week. So this means that the total time of the 8 consultants can go beyond 20 person weeks, but cannot also be 20 weeks multiply by 8.- Could you provide an estimate of person/week per expert? Please response above. The person week is for the company itself and should read company/week- Could we have more details about the deliverables? The deliverables are listed at the page 36 of the RFP. The consultants who have GEF development experience know what is expected in term of contents and quality for each of the deliverables. Additionally, the required templates will be shared with the winning company.- Is it possible to merge some positions if we have experts that have the relevant skills and experience for both roles? YesThank you,Umaro SeidiProcurement Associate Clarification to question raised regarding this RFPIs the proposal being re-advertised? We see different deadlines in the RfP.Response: No. This is the 1st advertisement.Page 3, it is written “If you have received this RFP through a direct invitation by UNDP, transferring this invitation to another firm requires your written notification to UNDP of such transfer and the name of the company to whom the invitation was forwarded.” Were they shortlisted companies before?Response: Just send a message to us confirming the you want to transfer the RFP to another company by e-mail including the name of the company.Is the deadline for submission on the 24th of March?Response: Please consider 24th March as it is the date section of Instruction to Proposers. The other date was initially inserted in the TORs and was not changed by error.Page 35 is very unclear to us, “closing date for applications is the 20th of February 2017”. Also, will the remuneration be on a weekly basis? Why?Response: Again, closing date is 24th March not February. It was an error. In regards to payment, note that in the submission form you are requested to set your payment terms based on deliverables.Is there any total budget estimate available?Response: I have no information regarding that and should be not be disclosed.Thank you, Section 1.

International Consultant to support establishment of Multi-Stakeholder Palm Oil Platform in Papua New Guinea

Country Office - PAPUA NEW GUINEA | Published October 10, 2017  -  Deadline October 18, 2017

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:

EOI- Côte D’Ivoire - Consultant for a Study on Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) in Guinea-Conakry – OFSD – 06 2015

 | Published June 1, 2015

1 REQUEST FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST Brief Description of the assignment: Consultant for a Study on Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) in Guinea-Conakry Department making the request: OFSD Place of assignment: Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire Period of assignment: June 2015 to July 2015 Expected start date of the assignment: 22 June 2015 Last date for expressing interest: 12 June 2015 Expression of interest to be submitted to: Any questions/ clarifications needed to be addressed to: Terms of reference for “Consultant for a Study on Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) in Guinea- Conakry” I. INTRODUCTION/BACKGROUND In 2014, the African Development Bank (AfDB) was approached by the Government of Guinea-Conakry in order to assist with the establishment of a new development finance institution (DFI) whose aim will be to increase access to finance, particularly medium to long-term finance, for the country’s private sector. The existing DFIs in Guinea have so far been unable to effectively address market gaps, facilitate meaningful increases in financial intermediation in terms of outreach and scale, or galvanize sustainable development in their respective sectors. Many of these institutions intervened directly in the marketplace, substituting for private sector investment and risk taking. As commonly seen in old-style development finance, by assuming credit risk, most of the DFIs were quickly confronted with high levels of non-performing loans (NPLs), caused by factors such as lack of appropriate lending methodology and capacity, an inadequate incentive structure to originate and maintain a performing loan portfolio and avert non-performance and politically influenced governance structures. The ability to take direct lending decisions also made these institutions more vulnerable to capture, a situation further exacerbated by the lack of independent and effective oversight. As a result, the existing DFIs have been unable to achieve operational and financial sustainability, reach unbanked segments of entrepreneurs at scale, or sustainably provide finance. Recognizing these limitations, the Government of Guinea-Conakry decided to seek the support of the AfDB in establishing a new DFI that will be better regulated and more clearly aligned with development priorities. The support from the AfDB is expected to be in the form of a significant contribution to the design of the structure of the new DFI. In terms of the design of the new DFI, the Financial Sector Development Department (OFSD) of the AfDB has decided to recruit a Consultant for a study whose aim will be to carry out an extensive diagnostic 2 review of the existing DFI landscape in Guinea and propose a structure that is best suited for the needs of the country. II. OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY The objectives of the study are twofold: 1. Assessing the DFI landscape in Guinea-Conakry with particular emphasis on the factors that have led to the underperformance of the institutions that have been established thus far; and 2. Determining the optimal DFI structure that will ensure sustainable impact and scale and which will be best suited for the needs and particular characteristics of the country. Equally important is the need to ensure that the design of the proposed new DFI is informed by an in-depth review of global experiences relating to DFI reforms. III. SCOPE OF WORK The above objectives are discussed in more detail below: 1. Assessing the DFI landscape in Guinea-Conakry: Like almost every country (including the most advanced economies), Guinea-Conakry has established a number of DFIs in the past including the most recent Banque Africaine pour le Développement Agricole et Minier (BADAM) which was established in 2010 and went bankrupt within its first few years of existence as a result of a number of documented factors including political interference and mismanagement. In assessing the DFI landscape, the study will need to identify and provide a comprehensive list of factors that have led to the underperformance of the previously established DFIs as these will be taken into account in designing the new institution. The assessment will also need to identify the salient features of the previous DFIs in terms of the following:  Ownership structures;  Governance including the process for the appointment of management and board members;  Regulation and supervision with emphasis on the entities overseeing the DFIs;  Types of banking licenses;  Credit models (retail or wholesale);  Mandates and target sectors;  Financial performance;  Risk management;  Sources of funding;  …and in other features that would assist in understanding the performance of the previous DFIs in Guinea. 2. To assist the Government of Guinea-Conakry in their quest for establishing a new DFI that will deliver on its mandate in an impactful manner, the study would need to propose an innovative design structure that takes into account the findings of the above objective as well as recent trends in global DFIs. In particular, the study would need to focus on the following:  Appropriate ownership model: state ownership vs. a mixed public-private capital structure; 3  Appropriate capital structure (optimal sizes of equity and balance sheet);  Funding strategy;  Mandate and sector(s) to target. Need to ensure that the mandate is tight;  Appropriate governance structure with clear process for the appointment of the board and management. This is necessary to ensure that the DFI is profitable, self-funding and insulated from political interference;  Regulation and supervision especially who should supervise the new DFI;  Type of required banking license; and  Appropriate risk management framework and credit model, retail vs. wholesale. IV. METHODOLOGY The objectives of the study would be expected to be achieved through an initial desk review followed by missions to Guinea-Conakry to meet with the relevant stakeholders including, but not limited to:  The central bank;  The ministry of finance;  Existing DFIs;  Commercial banks;  The private sector; and  Development partners in Guinea. V. DELIVERABLES The following deliverables are expected from the study:  A detailed assessment of the DFI landscape in Guinea-Conakry; and  Design of a new DFI that will be operationally and financially sustainably and insulated from political interference and capture. These will be documented in a report to be submitted to the AfDB. VI. PROJECT MANAGEMENT, INSTITUTIONAL AND IMPLEMENTATION ARRANGEMENTS The study will be implemented by the Consultant selected by the Task Managers (Sofiane Sekioua and Laura French). The Consultant will report to and be guided by the Task Managers and implement the study according to the present Terms of Reference.
