Climate Change modeler (International or National Expert) – The Kingdom of Cambodia The Kingdom of Cambodia has received a grant from Nordic Development Fund (NDF) towards the financing of the climate change component of the Rural Roads Improvement Project. Part of the grant will be applied for eligible payments under the contract for consulting services. The main transport Project specifically aims to rehabilitate and pave 505.4 kilometers of rural roads of 5–6 meters in width to improve rural connectivity to pave national and provincial road network. The total loan amount is $65.4 million, out of which ADB Sustainable Transport finances $35 million, with co-financing from Korea Export-Import Bank (KEXIM) for civil works in the amount of $19.35 million in addition to government co-financing. The proposed budget for the adaptation component of this project is a EUR 4 million (~USD $5.4 million) grant from Nordic Development Fund (NDF). The Project has 4 major components: (i) civil works component; (ii) road asset management component, dealing with asset management capabilities of the Ministry of Rural Development (MRD); (iii) road safety and safeguards component; (iv) Climate change adaptation. The climate change adaptation component of this Project will seek to strengthen the overall objective of the Project to improve rural road mobility. It will do so by: • Protecting the road infrastructure from the impacts of climate change and, • Ensuring that the road infrastructure does not increase the vulnerability of the surrounding area to climate change. The adaptation activities fall under two outcomes: Outcome 1: Improved planning for rural road infrastructure development by MRD to accommodate climate changes and, Outcome 2: Increased resilience of road infrastructure to climate changes. We are seeking consulting services for 6 month for climate change adaptation component of this project: Climate Change Modeler (i) Objective/Purpose of the Assignment: To assess and address climate change downscaling gaps for Cambodia and provide an assessment of future climate change in Cambodia as input into vulnerability mapping. (ii) Scope of the Work: The specialist will co-lead in the development of the vulnerability maps (activity 1.1) as well as contribute to others as needed (1.3, 2.2) (iii) Detailed tasks: 1. Analysis of the currents needs and gaps, particularly in coordination with the Ministry of Environment and work undertaken through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change National Communications. 2. GCM analysis and selection 3. Conduct regional climate modeling /Statistical downscaling 4. Undertake climate-hydrological model coupling, together with impacts and hydrology specialist 5. Analyze and present the results in visual formats with assistance from the Geographic Information System (GIS) Specialist. (iv) Final Output: Report detailing the results of assessment, including input into impact models for further assessment. (v) Skills Required: The international specialist should have at least 5 years experience running global circulation models and applying downscaling techniques, particularly dynamical downscaling. Experience working in a developing country context and in Cambodia in particular will be necessary, with a minimum Masters degree in the related field. The national specialist should have a minimum bachelor degree in environment engineering and national experience of 5 years in the related field. Stipend depends on level of expertise. The deadline for application is the 23rd of October 2011.
