PROJECT DESCRIPTION Papua New Guinea (PNG) is one of the world’s most important biodiversity hotspots, with a major tropical wilderness area that still contains 5% of the original and untouched tropical high-biodiversity terrestrial ecosystems. PNG in itself contains over 5% of the world's biodiversity in less than 1% of the world's total land area. As of October 2010, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List considered 455 species as endangered in PNG; this constitutes less 2% of known species, but 20% of assessed species. Moreover, a further 14% (314 species) of assessed species are listed as data deficient. The data that is available further highlight the need to implement better analysis tools to maximize conservation efforts because the conservation status has only been assessed for relatively few species. Expanding biodiversity surveys and improving species data management will help to identify species or ecosystems under greatest threat, assist in conservation planning and priority setting, and raise awareness of threatened species throughout PNG. Papua New Guinea is yet to develop a species or ecosystem database to determine conservation status and trends of species and ecosystems.

Background:The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has had a long and proud history in Papua New Guinea (PNG), working in all areas of development over the last 30 years, since the first UNDP office opened in PNG in 1981. With the support of the Government, and partners and donors, UNDP has forged strong bonds and built successful working relationships in all PNG provinces.Despite vast natural and mineral wealth, PNG faces many development challenges that impact on the daily lives of the population. In 2013, PNG was ranked 187 on the Human Development Index. It is estimated that 40 per cent of the population lives on less than one dollar per day, with a gross national income per capita of $2,227, that 75 per cent of households depend on subsistence agriculture. Life expectancy is 61.6 years and 25 per cent of children never go to school (21% male, 29% female).UNDP works to improve the state’s ability to deliver public services to its people, and in doing so, plays a vital role in helping to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by raising the standard of living and protect human rights for all Papua New Guineans. UNDP gives practical support to the government's efforts to become more efficient, effective, equitable and accountable. It attempts to foster greater participation in democratic and civil society and helps the government encourage private sector growth that makes use of the country's natural resources in a sustainable manner.UNDP has continually expanded its work in PNG and today focuses on two areas: (1) Democratic Governance for Equitable Development, and (2) Environment, Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management.Communicating UNDP’s mandate, support activities and results are crucial to enhance the awareness of the Government and the general public of Papua New Guinea, development partners and donors, as well as the global network of UNDP. This will enhance UNDP’s reputation, public perception, credibility and trust, and will provide the basis for resource mobilization.The consultancyThis consultancy will provide communications support to immediately help the office formulate and disseminate more and better information and its key functions. Under the direct supervision of the Communications Specialist, the Communications Consultant will develop and deliver a plan to visit key locations in PNG to create communication products to promote UNDP’s work in PNG.

Dans le cadre de l’appropriation de l’approche «Delivering as One», à travers le Plan Cadre des Nations Unies pour l’Aide au Développement «PNUAD 2018-2022», le Système des Nations Unies en Guinée envisage l’harmonisation de ses outils de communication, contribuant directement à l’amélioration de son image institutionnelle, à ses processus de travail et facilitant sa visibilité.Au vu de la multiplicité de ses entités et du défi que constitue leur coordination, cette démarche interne est en parfaite cohérence avec les principes de la Déclaration de Paris sur l’efficacité de l’aide et illustre de façon concrète le processus de la réforme du SNU.Cette approche contribuerait aussi à lever certaines contraintes dont l’émiettement et la dispersion des interventions du SNU et les faiblesses dans la coordination, identifiées à l’occasion de la réflexion globale sur la cohérence et l’efficacité du système menée par un panel de haut niveau nommé par le Secrétaire Général des Nations Unies.En Guinée, il s’agit de rendre les projets mis en œuvre par le Système des Nations Unies plus cohérents, de renforcer la complémentarité des interventions et réduire les coûts, à la fois pour le système des Nations Unies et pour le gouvernement. Adopter des outils et supports de communication, conformément à l’approche « Delivering as One » permet de renforcer la cohérence et l’efficacité de l’action du SNU, de valoriser son image auprès des bénéficiaires, des partenaires nationaux et internationaux, tout en favorisant des changements importants à savoir :Mieux communiquer d’une « Seule Voix » pour assoir l’image d’une «Seule institution» ;Harmoniser les documents et rapports produits par le SNU ;S’approprier la charte graphique du SNU proposé selon l’esprit «ONE UN».C’est dans ce contexte que le Bureau de la Coordonnatrice des Nations Unies recrute un (e) consultant (e) spécialisé (e) pour élaborer et harmoniser tous les designs de ses outils et produits (physique et électronique).(Voir TDR ci-joint)Les candidats intéressés sont priés de faire parvenir leur proposition sous pli fermé au bureau du PNUD à Coléah ou par e-mail à l'adresse info.offres.gn@undp.org, au plus tard le dimanche 29 octobre 2017.Toute offre envoyée par un autre canal outre que ceux indiqués ci-dessus sera simplement rejetée.La candidature sera obligatoirement composée, sous peine de rejet, de:une offre technique: plan de travail, méthodologie, CV;une offre financière: un montant forfaitaire incluant tous les frais.

Consultant International en Réforme de la Justice

Guinée-Conakry - GUINEA | Published April 4, 2017  -  Deadline April 14, 2017

Les Etats généraux de la Justice tenus en 2011 ont dressé un tableau du secteur assez préoccupant: infrastructures judiciaires et pénitentiaires vétustes ou inexistantes, ressources humaines insuffisantes, chaîne pénale le plus souvent dysfonctionnelle, entraves multiples à l’indépendance, l’impartialité, l’efficacité et l’accessibilité de la justice…etc.C’est pourquoi, les autorités de la troisième République ont inscrit parmi les priorités les plus pressantes, la réforme du secteur de la justice. Une politique nationale et un Plan d’Actions ont été élaborés et adoptés à cet effet respectivement en 2014 et 2015. Malgré quelques avancées, la réforme de la justice semble progresser plus lentement que prévu et il est évident que le premier défi du secteur de la justice est celui de sa réforme.C’est dans ce contexte que les autorités guinéennes ont adressé une demande d’assistance technique au Secrétaire Général des Nations Unies, notamment la mise à disposition d’une équipe d’experts pouvant soutenir non seulement au niveau structurel le Comité national de pilotage de la réforme de la justice mais aussi ensemble de la chaîne pénale. Une mission organisée par le Global Focal Point justice, police et prisons s’est rendue en Guinée en février 2014. L’objectif de cette mission était d’effectuer une analyse situationnelle de la réforme du secteur de la justice en Guinée du point de vue de la chaîne pénale et de développer un programme de soutien cohérent en conséquence.En juin 2015, le La mission a recommandé entre autres mesures, le déploiement d’un Conseiller Technique pour appuyer les organes chargés du pilotage de la réforme. De juillet 2014 à décembre 2016, le PNUD a engagé un Consultant international pour apporter cet appui.Parallèlement, le PNUD a élaboré et validé avec les partenaires un projet intitulé: Appui à la réforme du secteur de la justice et à la lutte contre l’impunité en Guinée. Ce programme prévoit le déploiement d’un conseiller technique sénior auprès du Ministère de la justice pour appuyer le pilotage de la réforme ainsi que la mise en œuvre du projet justice.C’est pourquoi le PNUD recrute un consultant international en réforme des institutions de justice pour appuyer le processus de réforme de justice en cours tout en apportant un appui technique à la mise en œuvre du projet d’appui à la réforme du secteur de justice et à la lutte contre l’impunité porté par le PNUD et le HCDH.

Le PNUD et le Gouvernement de Guinée ont signé le Plan d’Action du Programme de Pays 2013-2017 en novembre 2012. Ce Plan est élaboré sur la base des analyses du Bilan Commun de Pays et priorités nationales, il est bâti sur une approche Programme, exigeant le passage des microprojets disparates vers des programmes plus alignés et enclins à contribuer aux objectifs stratégiques du pays. Cette approche programme est structurée autour de deux grands axes :i) Gouvernance et Consolidation de la Paix ; ii) Croissance et Développement Durable. Cette harmonisation devrait se traduire au niveau aussi bien de la planification et de la conception des projets qu’à celui de leur mise en œuvre. Le Programme Environnement et Développement Durable constitue l’une des composantes du Programme Croissance et Développement Durable.Les actions du Programme Environnement et Développement Durable visent à relever les défis liés à la gestion durable de l’environnement et l’adaptation au changement climatique tant au niveau national que local, à travers la formulation, la mise en œuvre et le suivi évaluation de politiques et programmes de gestion de l’environnement et de politiques sectorielles tenant compte des engagements de la Guinée en conservation et protection de l’environnement, et des changements climatiques.Dans l’élaboration du PTA 2016 du programme environnement et développement durable, le Ministère de l’Environnement, des Eaux et forêts a soumis des requêtes liées à la concrétisation des sollicitations formulées auprès du PNUD en marge de la COP21 à Paris par la délégation guinéenne. A cette occasion, la délégation Guinéenne a pu exprimer les priorités du pays et les problèmes rencontrés dans la mise en œuvre des projets. Les grands points de cet échange tournaient sur la mobilisation des ressources et d’autres appuis. Pour la mise en œuvre de certaines activités du PTA 2017 du PEDD, notamment dans le cadre du projet « Adaptation basée sur les Ecosystèmes de la Région de la Haute Guinée » l’expertise d’un consultant national est requise.

The Government of Papua New Guinea - represented by the Conservation and Environmental Protection Agency (CEPA) - and the UNDP Papua New Guinea Country Office (CO) have developed a project concept for a Full-Sized Project (FSP) which seeks to support the development of more sustainable, long term revenue streams to fund the establishment and management of the system of protected areas in Papua New Guinea (PNG).This FSP, titled ‘Sustainable financing of Papua New Guinea’s protected area network’, forms part of a modular approach to strengthening biodiversity conservation in PNG. This modular approach comprises three discrete but complementary GEF-funded projects, two of which are already under implementation. The first is the GEF-4 project, Community-based Forest and Coastal Conservation and Resource Management in Papua New Guinea project (2012-2018) which aims to develop and demonstrate community-based resource management and conservation models for communal landowners located in the Owen Stanley Range and New Britain island. The second is the GEF-5 project, Strengthening the Management Effectiveness of the National System of Protected Areas in Papua New Guinea (2015-2019) which is focused on supporting the establishment of the CEPA; facilitating the implementation of the PAP; and improving the planning and management of two demonstration conservation areas - YUS and Torricelli. It is expected that lessons and knowledge generated from the existing two projects will be integrated into the design of the new project so as to ensure complementarity and knowledge exchange between the three projects during implementation. The Project Identification Form (PIF) for the FSP has been endorsed by the GEF Secretariat, and a Project Preparation Grant (PPG) approved. This PPG will support all the preparatory work required to draft and finalize all the documentation required by the GEF for CEO Endorsement. The preparatory work to be undertaken during the PPG phase will include: the collection and collation of key information; technical reviews and feasibility assessments; establishing the baseline and GEF incremental benefits for the project; the detailed design and costing of project outputs and activities; identifying the optimal management arrangements for the implementation of the project and project activities; clarifying stakeholder inputs and roles and responsibilities; and defining project performance indicators and targets. The PPG phase will be underpinned by a participatory approach, with regular consultation and working meetings with all key PPG stakeholders throughout the PPG phase. Specific attention will be given to gender issues by undertaking a gender analysis to ensure optimal involvement of women in, and beneficiation from project interventions.The project PIF can be accessed at: https://www.thegef.org/project/sustainable-financing-papua-new-guinea%E2%80%99s-protected-area-network Objectives: The objective of this assignment is to support and provide inputs to the preparatory work to prepare the final project documentation for submission to the GEF Secretariat.

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. The Papua New Guinea Forest Authority (PNGFA) estimates that approximately 80% of the total area of the country is covered by natural forests, of which 60% are considered intact forests.Approximately 10 per cent of global GHG emissions are caused by land-use change and, in particular, the destruction of tropical forests. Slowing deforestation and forest degradation is a likely cost effective way of reducing carbon emissions compared to other mitigation strategies, such as curbing emissions from power stations. 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 sovereigntyThe Government of Papua New Guinea (GoPNG) 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). A major component of the FCPF project is to support the development of PNG’s National REDD+ Strategy.SCOPE OF WORKThe objective of this assignment is to map out the existing and potential sources of finance for REDD+ implementation in PNG and identify the scale of finance necessary for REDD+ implementation in PNG. This work will feed into the development of PNG’s National REDD+ Strategy. In undertaking this assignment the international consultant (working closely with a national consultant, the FCPF team, government counterparts, private sector stakeholders and NGOs) will: 1) map out current and existing sources of REDD+ (and other land use-related) finance in PNG, and 2) identify the scale of finance necessary for REDD+ implementation in PNG, under various implementation scenarios.The international expert will take conceptual leadership of the tasks under this assignment, while working in close coordination and consultation with a national consultant, team of consultants on the development of a National REDD+ Strategy, Government, UNDP and FCPF staff and the UNDP regional technical advisor. Key elements of the assignment will include:Map out sources of existing and potential finance for REDD+ implementation in PNGThe first task will be to map out all current and potential sources of finance for REDD+ implementation in PNG, including:Public financing flows (i.e. government funds, including staff salaries and funded policy instruments for the land use 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 draft National REDD+ Strategy);Identification of opportunities to re-direct finance flows that are supporting activities linked to deforestation and forest degradation (e.g. alterations of fiscal frameworks);Private sector sources: including finance for the implementation of sustainable production systems, e.g. certification schemes for agricultural (“forest friendly”) commodities and sustainable timber.International sources: including donor programmes for REDD+ investments (e.g. Green Climate Fund (GCF), FCPF Carbon Fund) and results-based payments through the UNFCCC (GCF).This financial mapping exercise will consider and clearly distinguish between financing needs to meet:Transactions costs for REDD+ (e.g. operation of the national forest monitoring system and safeguards information system, among others);Implementation cost of PAMs and transaction costs associated with their implementationIdentify the scale of finance necessary for REDD+ implementation in PNGThe second task will be to work closely with the Climate Change and Development Authority (CCDA), the FCPF project management unit (PMU) and the consultant team drafting the National REDD+ Strategy to develop a number of scenarios for REDD+ implementation. These could include, for example, low, medium and high REDD+ financing plans, and should include:Costing of individual PAMs proposed in the National REDD+ Strategy, including personnel time (at national, provincial and local levels);Operational cost estimates;Estimates of achievable emissions reductions resulting from the implementation of various PAMs;Monitoring and reporting expenses.Following this, the consultant will identify and document in detail the financing gaps for REDD+ implementation in PNG, based on the PAMs set out in the draft National REDD+ StrategyInstitutional arrangementsThe work will be undertaken over a three month period from September 2016, with the international consultant undertaking at least two visits to PNG. Following the drafting of an inception report the consultant with travel to PNG to meet with relevant stakeholders and gather data and information for the assignment.

The Government of Papua New Guinea - represented by the Conservation and Environmental Protection Agency (CEPA) - and the UNDP Papua New Guinea Country Office (CO) have developed a project concept for a Full-Sized Project (FSP) which seeks to support the development of more sustainable, long term revenue streams to fund the establishment and management of the system of protected areas in Papua New Guinea (PNG).This FSP, titled ‘Sustainable financing of Papua New Guinea’s protected area network’, forms part of a modular approach to strengthening biodiversity conservation in PNG. This modular approach comprises three discrete but complementary GEF-funded projects, two of which are already under implementation. The first is the GEF-4 project, Community-based Forest and Coastal Conservation and Resource Management in Papua New Guinea project (2012-2018) which aims to develop and demonstrate community-based resource management and conservation models for communal landowners located in the Owen Stanley Range and New Britain island. The second is the GEF-5 project, Strengthening the Management Effectiveness of the National System of Protected Areas in Papua New Guinea (2015-2019) which is focused on supporting the establishment of the CEPA; facilitating the implementation of the PAP; and improving the planning and management of two demonstration conservation areas - YUS and Torricelli.The Project Identification Form (PIF) for the FSP has been endorsed by the GEF Secretariat, and a Project Preparation Grant (PPG) approved. This PPG will support all the preparatory work required to draft and finalize all the documentation required by the GEF for CEO Endorsement. The preparatory work to be undertaken during the PPG phase will include: the collection and collation of key information; technical reviews and feasibility assessments; establishing the baseline and GEF incremental benefits for the project; the detailed design and costing of project outputs and activities; identifying the optimal management arrangements for the implementation of the project and project activities; clarifying stakeholder inputs and roles and responsibilities; and defining project performance indicators and targets. The PPG phase will be underpinned by a participatory approach, with regular consultation and working meetings with all key PPG stakeholders throughout the PPG phase. Specific attention will be given to gender issues by undertaking a gender analysis to ensure optimal involvement of women in, and beneficiation from project interventions.The project PIF can be accessed at: https://www.thegef.org/project/sustainable-financing-papua-new-guinea%E2%80%99s-protected-area-network Objectives: The Protected Areas Policy (2014) provides for the establishment of a ‘Biodiversity Trust Fund’ which will provide an ‘accountable and transparent mechanism’ to administer diverse sources of funding[1] for the protected area network.
