The position is part of the Colombo-based Implementation Team (the Team) which will be responsible for: (i) defining and implementing the intervention strategy; (ii) overall project coordination, and stakeholders information and consultation; (iii) the implementation of the communication and visibility strategy, and the M&E system; and (iv) the administrative and financial management of the project.
The Sustainable Consumption & Production (SCP) expert will be part of the GPDF team based in Colombo. The role is a senior and substantive one informing all of the GPDF activities on IGE issues. SCP is a key cross-cutting thematic area of the GPDF project and will be a central focus of its activities.

Indicative tasks to be carried out would include:
The Green Policy Dialogue Facility (GPDF) is a four-year intervention funded by the European Union (EU). It seeks to use the current economic crisis as an opportunity to support Sri Lanka towards a more sustainable growth trajectory. The ultimate goal would entail achieving a green (and blue) economy that is circular, carbon neutral, and socially inclusive; which, not only, would be more respectful of biodiversity resources and socio-economic/demographic context, but would also provide much needed macroeconomic stability.
In this context, the facility would harness policy experiences and knowledge from the EU (e.g. the European Green Deal), along national and regional ones, to contribute to the green recovery (medium term) and transition (long term) of the Sri-Lankan economy and society.
GPDF would more specifically support the mainstreaming of green economy (GE) challenges and objectives in the Sri Lankan policy landscape, as well as the facilitation of bringing GE policy to action by contributing to the following specific objectives (SO):
The primary direct beneficiaries of the project will be the public institutions particularly, the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Finance as well as government institutions focused on SMEs. Other direct beneficiaries include the private sector, financial institutions, and civil society.
The Green Policy Dialogue Facility, which should start in Q2 2023, will be the first bilateral project to be implemented by Expertise France in Sri Lanka.
Minimum of a master’s degree in Engineering (Environmental, Industrial, Waste Management, Hydraulic, etc.), Political Science, Sustainable Business, Sociology or other relevant discipline.
A specialised training on SCP will be an asset.
