The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment. UNEP’s Policy and Programme Division performs strategic planning, coordination and monitoring of UNEP’s programmes as well as coordinates UNEP’s engagement with the wider UN system and global processes.

UNEP’s Medium-Term Strategy for the period 2022-2025 (MTS 2022-2025) describes UNEP’s future trajectory for the period 2022-2025, while outlining the organization’s contribution to Agenda 2030 as the direction of travel towards a global 2050 vision of planetary sustainability. To facilitate the implementation and delivery of the anticipated results in the MTS and the associated programmes of work, there is a need to lay the infrastructure and provide an enabling environment that will enable effective and efficient programme delivery. These are corporate activities that cannot be attributed to any particular sub-programmes but are essential for UNEP Divisions, Regional Offices and MEAs administered by UNEP to engage and support the implementation of the MTS and programmes of work at the global, regional, sub-regional and country levels.

The year 2021 will be used to review the current MTS 2018-2021 as well as to prepare UNEP for the implementation of the MTS 2022-2025. This period, referred to as MTS readiness, will be used to develop the necessary policies, standards and tools and ensure related capacity building for staff and key partners to equip them to be able to effectively implement the MTS 2022-2025 and the associated programmes of work and budgets for 2022-2023 and 2024-2025.

The consultant is sought to support UNEP in preparing for the implementation of the MTS 2022-2025.
