UNDP Vietnam is seeking for 01 National Consultant – Climate Adaptation and Environmental Health Expert in climate change assessment in review and assess capabilities in analyzing and integrating on climate change adaptation and health, based at Ministry of Health (MOH)
With its extensive coastline and deltaic plains, Viet Nam is considered to be among the most vulnerable countries to climate change globally. Extreme weather events such as typhoons and tropical storms have increased in frequency and intensity, magnifying socio-economic and health impacts on rural, urban, coastal, and mountain communities, and endangering critical transportation and drainage infrastructure. The Mekong Delta is one of the most susceptible deltas in the world to sea level rise.
To address climate change, the Government of Viet Nam developed a series of national climate change, green growth, and sustainable development policies, strategies, and action plans. One key planning instrument is the GoV’s National Strategy on Climate Change 2012-2020. To date, the government has been able to put in place several key climate change related decisions, including the landmark Plan for Implementation of the Paris Agreement in 2016 and approved its domestic National Adaptation Plan (NAP) in the year 2020. In addition, Viet Nam is among the first countries to have submitted its Updated Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) to the UNFCCC in July 2020, which has a strong adaptation component.
The main objective of the consultancy is to support MoH and UNDP to review and assess capabilities in analyzing and integrating on climate change adaptation and health. The consultant will be supervised by the MoH’s Project Director and the UNDP Project Manager and is expected to work closely with MoH officials and other mobilised technical consultants.
