1 TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR INDIVIDUAL CONSULTANTS/CONTRACTORS POST TITLE: PROJECT NAME: COUNTRY OF ASSIGNMENT: Climate Change Adaptation and Project Development specialist-international Consultant Enhancing Sustainability and Climate Resilience of Forest and Agricultural Landscape and Community Livelihoods Bhutan 1) GENERAL BACKGROUND Located within the Eastern Himalayan global biodiversity hotspot, Bhutan has a land area of only 38, 394 km 2. Despite its small size the country has some of the richest biodiversity in the world and ranks in the top ten percent of countries with highest species density. It also has the highest proportion of forest cover (72.5%) including 51.44% area set as aside as protected area and biological corridors. The country s landscape is highly mountainous and rugged with elevations ranging from 160 m to nearly 7,500 m. Due to its topography, habitable and arable areas are limited to approximately 8.3% and 2.9%, respectively of the total land area. Bhutan s economy is largely dependent on natural resources. Agriculture, which together with livestock husbandry, is the main source of livelihood for over 69% of the population. Bhutan has been witnessing signs of climate change. Erratic monsoonal activities are increasingly causing extreme windstorms during the spring and multiplying the risk of forest fires during the drier winter seasons. Slow onsets of disasters such as droughts and local extreme rainfall are less likely to make news headlines and are therefore less well recorded, but the impacts are often equally detrimental to marginal farmers who have limited means to mitigate their impacts. Bhutan s latest Human Development Report 2011 explicitly acknowledges the potential impacts of climate change on economic and social development. One in four Bhutanese continues to remain in income poverty and one in three farmers are food-insufficient. Poverty is largely a rural phenomenon with 97.4% of incomepoor living in rural areas and over 70% in the agriculture sector. With increasing incidents of climateinduced hydro-met extreme events that destroy farmlands and rural infrastructure, and droughts and excessive rains that reduce the productivity of agriculture, it is likely that the hard-won development gains can be reversed easily. Bhutan s HDR assumes that the decline is due to loss of arable land from flash floods, damage to crops, changes in temperature and rainfall patterns, and water scarcity. Underlying causes for the vulnerability include geographical challenges and poverty that is still prevalent in rural areas. In the face of the logistical challenges in Bhutan, it is hard for public services and livelihood support to reach remote areas of this mountainous society. A great degree of dependence of livelihood on natural resources with little built rural infrastructure makes the society vulnerable to ongoing climate variability, not to mention future climate change. To address climate vulnerability to the livelihood and biodiversity of the country, the Royal Government of Bhutan has requested GEF assistance through UNDP for the preparation of an integrated project proposal for a full sized project on Enhancing Sustainability and Climate Resilience of Forest and Agricultural Landscape and Community Livelihoods. The project aims to operationalize an integrated landscape approach through strengthening of biological corridors, sustainable forest and agricultural systems, and building climate resilience of community livelihoods. The project objective will be achieved through interrelated components: 1) Improved institutional capacity at national, sub-national and village level to manage forest and agricultural landscape for climate resilience; 2) Emplacement governance system for biological corridors and management system in the pilot corridors; and 3) Availability of climate resilient

2 livelihood options for communities. 2) OBJECTIVES OF THE ASSIGNMENT The objective of the consultancy is to prepare a full-size Project Document and GEF CEO Endorsement Request Form 1 for the above project in Bhutan for approval by the Global Environment Facility.
