PURPOSE OF THIS CONTRACT

Oxfam in Cambodia is seeking a potential consultant/s to conduct study on “Engaging CSOs, Communities and Private Sector in influence policy for a Just Energy Transition in Cambodia”. The overall objective of the research is to investigate and propose strategies for engaging CSOs, local communities, and the private sector in Cambodia to influence the government’s policies and actions towards achieving a Just Entergy Transition in Cambodia. The focus of this study will be on ensuring the transition to renewable energy sources and sustainable practices is equitable, socially inclusive, and economically beneficial for all stakeholders involved.   

 

BACKGROUND AND CONTEXT

Cambodia is undergoing a very rapid economic transformation, and this is leading to a growing demand for energy. While the benefits of this economic development are undoubted, there is a danger that Cambodia is on an unsustainable trajectory, both economically and environmentally.

 

The war in Ukraine has prevented the COVID-19 pandemic affected the global economy form its gradual recovery. The global pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war have triggered a devastating humanitarian crisis by increasing food and commodity prices, soaring energy prices, and globally exacerbating inflationary pressures while the climate crisis intensifies.

 

Eventually, the marginalized communities and social groups contributing the least to the crisis have suffered more. As the world is shifting away from its reliance on fossil fuels (oil, natural gas, and coal) to renewable energy (wind and solar, as well as lithium-ion batteries, among others), technologies are becoming increasingly essential. Therefore, a clean and just energy transition is required to reduce carbon emissions and prevent the impacts from worsening.

 

A Just Energy Transition is a comprehensive and inclusive approach to transitioning to a low-carbon economy that ensures that the benefits and costs of the transition are distributed fairly and equitably. This means that the transition to a low-carbon economy should not negatively impact vulnerable populations, such as low-income families, minority communities, and workers in high-carbon industries. The concept of a Just Energy Transition is based on the recognition that the transition to a low-carbon economy will require significant changes to the energy system, including the adoption of new technologies, the development of renewable energy sources, and the phasing out of fossil fuels. These changes will have significant impacts on communities and workers that are dependent on high-carbon industries, such as coal mining or oil and gas production.

 

A Just Energy Transition seeks to address these impacts by ensuring that the transition is equitable and inclusive. This means that the transition should be designed to benefit all members of society, not just those who are already well-off or well-connected. It should also take into account the needs and perspectives of all stakeholders, including workers, communities, and local businesses.

 

Oxfam[1] looks at a Just Energy Transition (JET) from core justice principles and related rights to ensure an economically, socially, and environmentally just at the international, national and intergenerational levels. Five JET principles are as follows:

  1. Recognition-based justice: the rights and injustices experienced by and affected by marginalized economic and social groups are recognized and addressed.
  2. Procedural justice: affected people have a meaningful say in the design and implementation of transition policies and projects.
  3. Distributional justice: a fair distribution of the responsibilities, costs, and benefits of climate/energy action.
  4. Remedial justice: people are fairly compensated for any harm resulting from energy projects or for loss and damage from climate change. 
  5. Environmental Justice: the environment and ecosystem are well preserved. The energy generation projects are environmentally preserved and do not harm natural resources and the environment.

SCOPE OF WORK

The study aims to investigate and propose strategies for engaging CSOs, local communities, and the private sector in Cambodia to influence the government’s policies and actions towards achieving a Just Entergy Transition. The focus of this study will be on ensuring the transition to renewable energy sources and sustainable practices is equitable, socially inclusive, and economically beneficial for all stakeholders involved. Therefore, scope of this study will include the following:

  1. Assess the current energy landscape in Cambodia, including the existing energy sources, their environmental impacts, and the socio-economic challenges faced by communities.
  2. Identify key CSOs, community groups, and private sector entities in Cambodia that are actively involved in energy-related initiatives or have the potential to contribute to a just energy transition.
  3. Analyse the existing policies, regulations, and frameworks related to energy transition in Cambodia, and assess the level of stakeholder involvement and inclusivity.
  4. Develop a comprehensive engagement strategy to foster collaboration and dialogue among CSOs, communities, and the private sector to influence government policies and actions towards a just energy transition in Cambodia.
  5. Provide recommendations for policy reforms, capacity building programs, and financial mechanisms that can support the implementation of a just energy transition in Cambodia.
