The Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) at the World Bank, is investigating how the energy transition the transition away from fossil fuels, encompassing the adoption of new technologies and models of service delivery in the sector can contribute to the generation of jobs and support economic activity while advancing the global decarbonization agenda. For a specified set of World Bank energy sector projects, the Consultant will prepare detailed case studies. As part of each case study, the Consultant will trace the set of activities undertaken as part of the project; develop a methodology for estimating jobs created by and as a result of the project, articulating a results chain in the process; and, applying the methodology, estimate the employment impact of the project (jobs numbers and various dimensions of job quality, earnings, etc.). Key findings from the case studies will be summarized in a note.

eC2: Sudan Agriculture Value Chain Investment Roadmap

Deadline:  03-Feb-2021 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.) agriculture-youth

Agriculture is the backbone of the Sudanese economy, generating one-third of GDP and having a labor share of more than 50 percent. Agriculture provides livelihood to approximately two-thirds of the population. Value chains in the agriculture sector, however, remain underdeveloped and fragmented and lack integration. Increased agro-processing and trade, supported by well-directed strategic public sector investments, can unlock much greater value from agriculture. Policy-induced private investment, backed up by public sector financing to facilitate value chain development can set in motion a virtuous cycle of increased productive investment that can in turn boost government revenues from tax collections on corporate profits.
The World Bank is seeking services of a consulting firm to prepare an investment roadmap for two agricultural value chains: Sorghum and Livestock (Small Ruminants).

eC2: Enabling integration and implementation of urban climate action in national urban plans and climate strategies

Deadline:    10-Dec-2020 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)climate

The World Bank is undertaking analytical work on Long-Term Low-Carbon Urban Development to support national and subnational governments in incorporating urban mitigation action into the new generation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), urban development interventions, strategies and planning instruments. This work is focused on rapidly urbanizing developing countries, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. The objective of this assignment is to prepare a set of technical notes that identify critical factors and institutional actions required to facilitating transformative change in rapidly urbanizing areas. It will include developing approaches for policy makers to facilitate a transition to long-term decarbonization pathways in line with the Paris Agreement. This transition will be enabled through the formulation of the new generation of NDCs and LTSs, as well as of broader urban strategies that integrate such urban mitigation actions.
