CV Deadline 2024-03-29
Background

In our experience with current and past framework contracts, most of the requests for services aim at fostering the transformation of economies toward a green growth development model -environmentally sustainable and economically viable- aligned with policies of reduction of greenhouse gases emissions and sustainable development goals. Public and private stakeholders can henceforth devise green growth plans and strategies, which can in turn be translated into projects aligned with sectoral priorities.

More specifically, the issues considered cover: 1. Reduction of GHG Emissions 2. Creation of green jobs, services and infrastructure 3. Increased access to sustainable services such as clean affordable energy, public transport, sanitation and waste management 4. The improvement of air quality, implying the reduction of pollutants from industrial as well as domestic origins 5. The protection of biodiversity and natural ecosystems, as to allow an economy depending on their sustainable exploitation, such as climate smart regenerative agriculture, climate-resilient agribusiness, forestry, blue economy in coastal zones and wetland landscapes.

Within the framework of our activities in providing highly competent and experienced skills for framework contracts with international clients, (a.o. European Commission and the European Investment Bank), we are constantly searching for new talents on specific issues, related to sustainable development and management of biodiversity and natural resources such as those indicated here above.

We are currently searching for additional new talents to respond to request for services for short, mid and long terms assignments.
