International consultant in Transport Mobility
Vacancy Number: Pr18/01774
Mr. Alexandru Rotaru.email@example.com
The Czech-UNDP Partnership for SDGs (hereafter CUP) project “Transfer of Czech experience in the development and implementation of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan of the Chisinau Municipality” is linked with the UNDP/GEF project “Moldova Sustainable Green Cities – Catalysing investment in sustainable green cities in the Republic of Moldova using a holistic integrated urban planning approach”, to be implemented during 2018 – 2022 years.
The objective of the project is to activate investments in low carbon green urban development based on integrated urban planning approach by encouraging innovation, participatory planning and partnerships between a variety of public and private sector entities.
As a tool for this, the project will support the design, launching, and establishment of the Green City Lab (hereafter GCL) to become the leading knowledge management and networking platform, clearing house, an inter-mediator of finance and a source of innovations and expertise to catalyze sustainable low carbon green city development in Moldova with a mission to transform Chisinau and other urban centers in Moldova into modern green and smart European cities with improved quality of life for their citizens, while also demonstrating opportunities for sustainable economic growth.
The direct global environment benefits of the project are expected to reach at least 200,000 tons of CO2, resulting from the concrete pilot/demonstration projects in the building energy efficiency, transport and waste sectors. These are complemented by project’s indirect GHG emission reduction impact at the estimated amount of 2.4 million tons of CO2 by scaling up, replicating and mainstreaming the project results and activities, including those of the Green City Lab.
As several cities from the Czech Republic (e.g. Plzeň/Pilsen, Ostrava, Brno, and Prague) have already experience in Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning, the replication of the best practices and lessons learned will be of benefit for both countries.
This CUP project is directly linked with the UNDP/GEF project “Moldova Sustainable Green Cities” activities aiming to elaborate the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) leading to improvements in the urban transport network and supporting Green Urban Development. Both developed products will inform the new General Urban Plan committed for development in the upcoming years. It will also provide a policy basis for decision-making and identification of priority green city development areas within the municipality. Furthermore, the GCL is envisaging to support in development of Green City Action Plan of the Chisinau Municipality (financially supported by the EBRD).
