The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is seeking experts to develop the business plan for the East African Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (EACREEE).

The EACREEE Business Plan shall be in line with the main policies of the Sectorial Council on Energy of the East African Community (EAC), including the EAC Energy Policy and any revisions hereto, and provide guidance on EACREEE’s operation within the EAC and its affiliates. It should also consider the Results Framework in the EACREEE Project Document and the joint cooperation framework of the GN-SEC. The Business Plan and its Action Plan for Implementation shall establish the role of EACREEE in contributing to achieve the cross-cutting objectives of SDG Goal 7 on Sustainable Energy, SDG Goal 9 on inclusive and sustainable industrial development and SDG-13 on climate change mitigation and adaptation.

Particularly, the business plan will: 
1) Outline a strategy on how EACREEE will support EAC Member States in achieving and exceeding their renewable energy, energy efficiency and climate mitigation targets set in relevant policies (e.g. NDCs); 
2) Outline how EACREEE will position itself as a regional focal institution promoting SDG-7 in the EAC region; 
3) Outline how EACREEE will position itself as a regional focal institution promoting the SDG-9 dimension of SDG-7 and SDG-13; in this context, the EACREEE focus lies on promoting sustainable energy solutions in key industries and for productive uses, as well as the strengthening of domestic energy manufacturing and servicing; 
4) Outline how EACREEE will position itself as an advocacy agent for sustainable energy at an international level and as an active member of the GN-SEC, in line with SDG-17 on partnerships. 

Applicants are requested to submit their proposals in English no later than March 09, 2019, (CET time) by registering on the UNIDO procurement system (www.unido.org/procurement).
