Technical Advisor/Expert

Technical Advisor/Expert

Organization : Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ) - องค์กรความร่วมมือระหว่างประเทศของเยอรมัน

As an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations, the Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, owned by the German government, operates on behalf of German Ministries, the governments of other countries and international clients. GIZ has a record of more than 60 years working in Thailand. As part of GIZ Thailand’s Environment and Climate Cluster, we are currently looking for a Technical Advisor/Expert to support the implementation of climate policy component under the Thai-German Climate Programme.

 

Technical Advisor/Expert

Project Background:

German International Cooperation (GIZ) has worked in Thailand on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) since 2009. In the frame of the International Climate Initiative (IKI) GIZ supports the Thai Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MoNRE) to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improve adaptation to climate change in Thailand. Both ministries, the BMU and MoNRE, agreed in 2016 that so far separately commissioned projects in climate policy, water, agriculture, waste and renewable energy shall be combined into a single Thai-German Climate Programme (TGCP). This programme started in January 2018 and aims at its outcome level to improve the framework conditions for implementing the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in Thailand on both mitigation and adaptation to climate change. The Programme has five outputs with corresponding work packages. These are:

 

Work Package 1: National policy development and implementation (Output: The Thai NDCs are

operational and incorporated in five sectoral plans.)

 

Work package 2: Subnational implementation (Output: The subnational implementation of the Thai

NDCs is initiated.)

 

Work package 3: M&E and MRV (Output: Thailand has an appropriate MRV (Measure, Report and

Verify) system in line with UNFCCC requirements.)

 

Work package 4: Climate Finance (Output: Institutional structures to mobilize finance for the

implementation of NDCs are established.)

 

Work package 5: International and regional cooperation (Output: International cooperation for NDC

implementation in Thailand is strengthened.)

 

MoNRE has assigned its subordinate authority, the Office of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning (ONEP) as focal point for the Thai-German bilateral cooperation. ONEP is responsible for the development and implementation of the NDCs in Thailand and is therefore the main partner of GIZ in implementing the TGCP cooperation in the climate policy sector (TGCP-Climate Policy). At ONEP, a Climate Change Management and Coordination Division (CCMC) was established in 2008. CCMC functions as secretariat to Thailand’s National Committee on Climate Change Policy (NCCC) and its relevant subcommittees, and also acts as the National Focal Point (NFP) for the United Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the Nationally Designated Authority (NDA) for the Green Climate Fund (GCF), the focal point for the Adaptation Fund (AF), the focal point of Thailand’s Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) and the national focal point for the ASEAN Working Group on Climate Change (AWGCC).

 

TGCP-Climate Policy works closely with CCMC/ONEP as its main partner, as well as with other relevant agencies identified as key partner agencies for the development and implementation of Thailand’s NDCs, focusing on, but not limited to, the above-mentioned five work packages and outputs. We are an integrated team of climate and environmental policy experts/analysts, as well as political scientists and are now seeking for an interested candidate to complement the team, preferably with a strong technical competency in climate science, greenhouse gas mitigation assessment and/or economic modelling.
