Background:

 

Thailand is transitioning from the 11th National Economic and Social Development Plan (2012-2016) which sets a vision in moving Thailand towards a low carbon and climate resilient society to the 12th Plan (2017-2021) which aims to promote sustainable economic and social growth that is environmentally-friendly. Important steps have been taken to pave the way for low carbon and climate resilient society, however, local authorities especially municipalities are facing with a range of challenges on low carbon urban development. Rapid economic development, urbanization and climate change pose a threat to the management of municipalities/cities in a sustainable way. In support of the Royal Thai Government and the local administration, UNDP Thailand designed a country-led intervention on strengthening the capacities and processes at local level for bottom-up integrated low carbon development planning and the sustainable management of low carbon development projects.

 

The Achieving Low Carbon Growth in Cities through sustainable Urban Systems Management in Thailand (LCC) Project aims to strengthen the capacities and processes at local level for bottom-up integrated low carbon development planning, the implementation and sustainable management of low carbon development projects. The four-year project               (May 2017- April 2021) focuses on low carbon urban systems, in particular, waste management, sustainable transport and efficient use of energy, in four cities, while experiences will be shared with other cities to learn from.

 

The project objective is to “promote sustainable urban systems management in selected cities to achieve low carbon growth.” The objective will be achieved by removing barriers to adoption of low carbon development in cities in Thailand through the following components:

 

The project is financially supported by the Global Environment Facility (GEF), with the Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (TGO) Public Organization, as the Implementing Partner. The total GEF-supported funding is US$ 3,150,000.

 

To support the implementation of the project and ensure effective implementation and timely delivery, UNDP Thailand Country Office is recruiting a Project Coordinating Associate to work with TGO and UNDP to support Thailand in addressing development, environment and climate change in an integrated manner.

Duties and Responsibilities:

 

Under the direct supervision of the Project Manager, the Project Coordinating Associate will support the Project Manager in coordinating the day-to-day management and operations of the project, ensuring high quality, efficient and effective project delivery. The Project Coordinating Associate will focus on the coordination of activities with the partner cities.           As such, frequent travels to the partner cities is anticipated.
