The United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmnetal dimension of sustainable development within the UNited Nations system and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment.
Since 19999, Un Environment's Post-Conflict and Disaster Management Branch (PCDMB) has worked to assess the environmental impacts of conflicts and disastors as well as address the subsequent risks to humna health, livelihoods and security. As the work has progresses, opportunities have arisen for UN Environment to use its scientific approach and neutral position along with its policy basis to levrage discussions and/or cooperation on environmental issues between conflicting or formerly conflicting groups.
Following the close-out of the large Sudan Integrated Environment Project (SIEP) in June 2014, UN Environment in Sudan has secured follow-on funding from DFID in December 2015 for a 4-year project, ADAPT! promoting “increased understanding and integration of climate resilience, environmental management, and governance in programme delivery, plans and policy in Sudan”. This project will complement and build upon the 3-year EU funded Natural Resource Management for Sustainable Livelihoods programme in East Darfur, the 3-year Instrument Contributing to Stability and Peace (ICSP) project in West Kordofan and West and Central Darfur, the UNDF Foundational and Short Term Activities (DDS FaST), in which UN Environment is participating in a WASH/IWRM project lead by UNICEF, and the 3-year EU funded Wadi El Ku Catchment Management Project in North Darfur.
To help ensure a successful and timely implementation of the ADAPT! project, the country team will require additional capacities that are unavailable within the current structure. To meet this short-term additional capacity need, the country programme seeks to engage an Environment Mainstreaming consultant. The Mainstreaming consultant will support UN Environment’s country team in Sudan in environment and climate proofing of projects and programmes of UN AFPs in the humanitarian and development sectors, as well as their national and international implementing partners and existing funding mechanisms & donors.
