Overview :

The GEF Council has recently approved the Project Identification Form (PIF) for the Full-Sized Project titled “Leapfrogging South Africa’s Markets to High-Efficiency LED Lighting and High Efficiency Distribution Transformers” (PIMS 5728) implemented through the Department of Energy of South Africa. The GEF Implementation Agencies, UNDP and DBSA, are now commencing a detailed project preparation phase between April-December 2017. At the end of the preparation phase, UNDP and DBSA will finalize a GEF CEO Endorsement Request and respective Project Documents for approval/endorsement by the GEF CEO.

The project is being designed to accelerate South Africa’s efforts to transition the economy to energy-efficient products, through the following:

Developing the country’s market for Light-Emitting Diode (LED) lighting on the electricity demand-side; and

Developing the market for high-efficiency distribution transformers on the electricity supply-side, ultimately resulting in climate change mitigation, stable power supply and therefore economic development and improved energy access.

UNDP, in conjunction with DBSA, is seeking to recruit a Gender Specialist in Energy Efficiency under a National Consultant contract to ensure that gender considerations are fully mainstreamed into all relevant components of the project document as well as produce a participatory gender analysis and action plan for the project. The objective of the work is to explain how the project will contribute to gender equality and women’s empowerment, identify entry points for mainstreaming gender considerations in project components, ensure that the project results framework and theory of change are gender responsive, and to develop a gender action plan to advance women’s empowerment and promote gender equality.
