(Consultant, Part-time, Hanoi based)

 

USAID Clean Power Asia Program

 

Abt Associates, a global leader in technical assistance, program implementation and international development, seeks qualified individuals to fulfill the position of Country Coordinator Vietnam for the USAID Clean Power Asia program. The consultant is required to be based in Hanoi and eligible to work in Vietnam without any sponsorship.

 

The purpose of USAID Clean Power Asia is to accelerate the regional transition to high performing, low carbon power sector. The Activity will assist the governments of the Lower Mekong and other developing countries in Asia in energy planning and help establish effective policy, regulatory, and technical environment for low-emissions growth in the power sector, while simultaneously attracting public- and private-sector investment in Renewable Energy (RE) development. USAID Clean Power Asia is focused on the following resources: solar, wind, small hydro (<15 MW), and biomass residues.

 

The program is initially focused on the four Lower Mekong countries of Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand and Vietnam, but will also include activities at the ASEAN regional level. The program is managed from its office in Bangkok, Thailand and maintains Country Coordinators in Lao PDR and Cambodia, who serve as a key program resource in-country.

Consultant Scope of Work

The USAID Clean Power Asia Vietnam Country Coordinator (CC) will be responsible for coordinating program implementation in Vietnam, under the supervision of the COP/DCOP and working closely with technical and operational staff. The CC will be the primary source of information on activities related to the USAID Clean Power Asia program in-country, and will report regularly to program management on developments that are related to and impact the program. The CC will also directly coordinate with technical staff and short term consultants that are in country for specific work assignments.

For managing relationships with government counterparts, the CC will directly coordinate with the COP and staff of the USAID Vietnam Low Emission Energy Program (USAID VLEEP) funded by, and implemented on behalf of, USAID Vietnam. USAID VLEEP and USAID Clean Power Asia cooperate and coordinate, together with their respective USAID counterparts.  In Vietnam, USAID VLEEP will maintain the primary relationship with GoV counterparts and no meetings with the GoV will be held without a USAID VLEEP representative.
