ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability and UN-Habitat are jointly implementing the Urban-LEDS II project: Accelerating climate action through the promotion of Urban Low Emission Development Strategies in more than 60 cities worldwide in the Urban-LEDS II project, using a multilevel governance approach to urban climate action. The project is funded by the European Union and runs from April 2017 till March 2021. Through the Urban-LEDS II project, the local governments of selected cities are guided to create community-scale Urban Low Emissions Development Strategies (Urban LEDS) that also address climate resilience. These will be aligned to and ideally inform the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and National Adaptation Plans (NAPs). 

Lao PDR is among the Phase II countries of the Urban-LEDS II project. At the city level, the project is supporting and guiding the review of climate action planning in Kaysone Phomvihane and Pakse city, the model cities under Urban-LEDS II. The project also intends to conduct community-level GHG emissions inventory. Ultimately, the goal is to help the selected model cities formulate and develop Urban Low Emission Development Strategies and Action Plans. Toward this end, the project is looking for a community-level GHG emissions inventory Expert to deliver the following key tasks:

Key Duties:

  1. Conduct preliminary research and data gathering:

    • Calculate city-level emissions using available and appropriate calculation tools (e.g. ClearPath, HEAT+) that are consistent with international standards and guidelines or as endorsed by the national government.
  2. Adapt the Global Protocol for Community-Scale GHG Emission Inventory (GPC) and other relevant tools in the development of the GHG inventory.
  3. Facilitate knowledge and skill transfer to the city governments through the provision of technical support and training to the technical staff of both the model and satellite cities of the project.
  4. Present the results of the city-wide GHG inventories to relevant city staff and stakeholders for the cities of Kaysone Phomvihane and Pakse through face-to-face discussions workshops.
  5. Produce a final report documenting the outputs of the consultancy work in two languages (English and Lao).
