Position: Technical Specialist (MRV and Mitigation) – SB-4 (FAO)__Deadline:04-February

 Organizational Unit: FACMB
Job Type: Non-staff opportunities
Type of Requisition: NPP (National Project Personnel)
Grade Level: N/A
Primary Location: Cambodia-Phnom Penh
Duration: 11 months
Post Number: N/A

FAO representation in Cambodia is implementing the Support Programme on Scaling up Climate Ambition on Land Use and Agriculture through NDCs and NAPs (SCALA) to support transformative climate action in the land use and agriculture sectors to reduce GHG emissions and/or enhance removals, as well as strengthen resilience and adaptive capacity to climate change. This project will be supplemented with the existing networks that UNDP & FAO have on the ground to engage with these actors, for example, through the UN Global Compact’s national level chapters. 

In addition, FAO’s Scaling up Agroecology Initiative, as well as best practices from relevant initiatives in particular the CBIT Project, work to strengthen MAFF’s capacity on reporting the climate actions. In order to achieve this there is a need to support institutional capacity. In particular, this pertains to the MRV/MIS monitoring system to ensure transparency of climate action reporting in the agriculture and land-use sectors to address climate change impacts and drivers. This is also reflected in Cambodia’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), which was submitted to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 2020 and provides the basis for the development and strengthening of monitoring and reporting systems and processes pursuant to the requirements of the Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF). As such the focus of Outcome 2 under the SCALA project is the enabling environment (political, strategic, legal and operational) for operationalizing the options identified in NDCs and NAPs (and further assessed under outcome 1). Under this outcome, SCALA aims to strengthen organizational capacities and whole-of-government coordination. Improving measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) and monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems, and the costing of proposed options are activities that will be carried out to strengthen the conditions for implementing NDC actions.

To support the implementation of the project activities, FAO Country Office is seeking a motivated, dynamic candidate to serve as a Technical Specialist (MRV and Mitigation). 

This position will be based in the FAO Phnom Penh office in Cambodia.
