Building Resilience to Climate Change in Papua New Guinea: Project Implementation Support Consultants

The Government of Papua New Guinea has obtained a Grant from the Asian Development Bank to implement the proposed “Building Resilience to Climate Change” (BRCC - the project). The project will provide technical assistance in order to implement PNG’s Strategic Program for Climate Resilience (SPCR) 1 aimed at achieving transformational change in addressing the current and future threats from climate change and related hazards. This will be achieved by mainstreaming climate resilience into development planning and addressing country priorities that focus on vulnerable communities of Bougainville, East New Britain, Manus, Milne Bay and Morobe provinces comprising 21 priority vulnerable islands/atolls identified through a participatory process across four sectors including (i) infrastructure, (ii) natural resources, (iii) health, and (iv) agriculture, against potential impacts from climate change and variability.
The project impact is: increased resilience to the impacts of climate change and climate variability. The outcome is: improved capacities of vulnerable islands/atoll communities, government agencies, and civil society to plan and respond to the impacts of climate change. The direct beneficiaries include approximately 13,000 inhabitants of the 21 vulnerable islands. The nationwide benefits include increased capacity to manage climate change risks through establishment of early warning systems, access to finance by communities, and development of national databases and knowledge management systems.
The purpose of this assignment is to support the Project Management Unit (PMU) in
  • Project implementation and administration
  • Developing the necessary capacity development including training and transfer of skills to PMU personnel to improve their project management and implementation skills, and
  • Strengthening CCDA’s overall capacity for future management and implementation of similar projects.
