Common information



The proposed project supports the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic (GoKR) in establishing its National Adaptation Plan process and is consistent with the government’s strategic vision for climate change adaptation.

The project objective is to strengthen institutions and enhance vertical and horizontal coordination for climate change adaptation planning, facilitate mainstreaming of climate risks at sectoral and subnational levels, and identify a program of priority climate change adaptation investments. The GoKR has prioritized adaptation planning through its national long-term strategic planning process and associated medium-term implementation plans, through which the long-term plan is implemented. This broader national planning framework calls for the development of a National Adaptation Plan as well as four adaptation plans for priority sectors to guide mainstreaming and future investments (disaster and emergency management, health, biodiversity conservation, and agriculture and irrigation water). These plans will catalyze investments to enhance adaptive capacity in the Kyrgyz Republic.

The proposed project consists of three primary outcomes, each of which is associated with operationalizing the government’s strategic priorities by addressing identified gaps and barriers.

Qualification requirements

Required Skills and Experience


  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in social sciences/ natural studies/ Economics/ Public Administration/ Law/ International development or other related field;
  • Master’s degree in the above-mentioned areas would be an asset;
  • Gender certification is an asset.


  • At least 4 years of relevant practical professional work experience in the implementation and/ or monitoring of development projects in environment and/or projects in the field of Sustainable Development and/ or Climate Change, Natural Resources Management and/ or working in a relevant position to this post.
  • Experience of working with the international organizations/government/private sector/academic/CSO;
  • Experience in the usage of computers and office software packages (MS Word, Excel, etc.).

Language requirements:

  • Fluency in English and Russian.
  • Knowledge of Kyrgyz is an asset


These three outcomes are:

1. Strengthened coordination and institutional arrangements for adaptation planning. The outputs associated with this outcome respond to weaknesses with respect to cross-sectoral coordination, technical and scientific support for planning, and knowledge management. This outcome will result in improved cross-sectoral planning, the integration of climate change adaptation into national strategies, and the production of a National Adaptation Plan.

2. Priority sector-focused adaptation plans developed. The outputs associated with this outcome will address institutional weaknesses and capacity gaps within priority sectors’ agencies. Addressing these gaps will enable the agencies to begin to mainstream climate change adaptation considerations into planning and governance. The activities and outputs will also build the technical capacities of the agencies with respect to climate change adaptation and will empower them to iteratively identify and evaluate sector vulnerabilities and develop and implement adaptation measures. This outcome will also result in the production of climate change adaptation plans for the four priority sectors.

3. Sub-national climate change adaptation capacities strengthened. This outcome focuses on addressing institutional and capacity gaps at subnational levels and developing tools to enable subnational governments to begin to consider climate change adaptation in planning and budgeting processes. This outcome intends to advance the GoKR towards its goal of enlisting subnational governments in comprehensive national adaptation planning processes, while simultaneously equipping subnational governments with the tools and capacities needed to increase adaptive capacity at the local level.
