Overview :

The South African Wind Energy Project Phase 2 (SAWEP 2) is funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) with the Department of Energy (DoE) as the Executing Entity/Implementing Partner, and supported by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) South Africa Country Office. The project objective is to overcome barriers to the attainment of South Africa’s 2010 Integrated Resource Plan target of 3,320 MW of wind power generation online by 2018/19. In order to achieve this, the project focusses on four components: Component 1: Monitoring and Evaluation of the implementation of local content requirements, Component 2: Resource-mapping and wind corridor development support for policy-makers, Component 3: Support for the development of small-scale wind sector and Component 4: Training and human capital development for the wind energy sector. Each component is associated with specific outputs and a set of activities.

UNDP is seeking to recruit a Gender Specialist 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 current and future implementation.
