The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) is an operational arm of the United Nations, supporting the successful implementation of its partners’ peacebuilding, humanitarian and development projects around the world. Mandated as a central resource of the United Nations, UNOPS provides sustainable project management, procurement and infrastructure services to a wide range of governments, donors and United Nations organizations. With over 8,000 personnel spread across 80 countries, UNOPS offers its partners the logistical, technical and management knowledge they need, where they need it. By implementing around 1,000 projects for our partners at any given time, UNOPS makes significant contributions to results on the ground, often in the most challenging environments.

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment.

The overall objective of the UNEP’s Industry and Economy Division is to encourage decision makers in government, local authorities and industry to develop and adopt policies, strategies and practices and technologies that promote sustainable patterns of consumption and production, make efficient use of natural resources, ensure safe management of chemicals and contribute to making trade and environment policies mutually supportive. It promotes the development, use and transfer of policies, technologies, economic instruments, managerial practices and other tools that assist in environmentally sound decision making and the building of corresponding activities.

As part of the Industry and Economy Division, UNEP International Environmental Technology Centre (IETC) works with developing countries to implement sustainable solutions to environmental challenges, with focus on holistic waste management. UNEP-IETC provide technical and advisory support to national and local governments to enhance their use of environmentally sound strategies and approaches. UNEP-IETC also implement in-country demonstration projects using innovative waste prevention and management methods and technologies to improve human well-being, reduce the impact of climate change, increase resilience and create jobs. Working with a wide range of partners and in line with relevant multilateral environmental agreements, UNEP-IETC mission is to serve as a global centre of excellence on environmentally sound technologies with focus on holistic waste management.

In order to take necessary actions to combat waste management issues as part of pollution action with climate and nature actions under the UNEP Medium-term Strategy 2022-2025, UNEP-IETC needs to involve and encourage general public to take sustainability actions to make their lifestyle more sustainable to achieve the SDGs and towards carbon neutralization. While UNEP-IETC continues supporting the Member States and their local governments to develop and implement environmentally sound management of waste, UNEP-IETC has been reaching out general public to change people’s behavior on waste management, through various types of project activities, including the UNEP Sustainability Action where UNEP-IETC collaborates with globally famous private companies. In order for UNEP-IETC to continue their efforts to conduct outreach activities, UNEP-IETC needs to hire a consultant who will be in charge of outreach activities. A consultant will plan, arrange, coordinate and organize outreach activities, produce necessary media information and disseminate outreach information. Furthermore, a consultant will particularly conduct outreach activities to raise UNEP’s visibility, in particularly UNEP-IETC’s visibility, in Japan where UNEP-IETC is located.
