The main objective of the consultancy is to design and implement the National Environmental Statistics Platform, including front-end, CMS, back-end and database.
Duties and Responsibilities
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 UNEP Latin America and the Caribbean Office (LACO), located in Panama City, works closely with the 33 countries of the region and its activities are integrated into the Medium-Term Strategy and the Programme of Work approved by the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA).
In this framework, UNEP carries out a series of collaborative activities with other UN agencies, funds and programmes, articulated by the Resident Coordinator Office (RCO) aimed at contributing to the strengthening of the national statistical system to accelerate the progress and implementation of the SDGs, as well as to promote their use in the design of public policies with the objective of contributing to sustainable and inclusive development in the country (e.g. contribute to the improvement of the monitoring and follow-up system of the SDG indicators of the INEI).
Particularly, some of this collaboration is targeted to provide technical, methodological and financial assistance for statistical capacity building in terms of data generation, analysis and visualization, in the framework of the implementation and acceleration of the Agenda and the SDGs (e.g. projections of SDG achievement, disaggregation and/or construction of indicators, identification of data gaps, increased use of administrative data).
Currently, the Ministry of the Environment (MINAM) is working with the National Statistics Institute (INEI) in a series of projects related to strengthening the production and publication of environmental statistics, including the widening the scope of topics to cover and the elaboration of a statistical yearbook.
Both institutions have identified the main challenges associated to these joint objectives, among which the most relevant ones are linked to automatization of data collection, the adoption of methodological standards and the systematization of the information to be converted into internationally comparable statistical series.
The objective of this intervention is to design and implement a digital platform to improve:
-Data collection and management;
-Centralization of the information in a National Environmental Statistical Repository;
-Data visualization and analysis;
-Access to stored data by technical staff, through a user-friendly interface.
Through the development of this tool, UNEP and the RCO will be able to support decision and policy making processes and facilitate action on the environment in Peru.
