Short-Term Consultancy: Formulation of Sampling Strategy and Conduct of Activity Data Collection as Input to the Community-Level Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Inventory of Pasig City

Background

The Ambitious City Promises (ACP) is a 3.5-year regional project which aims to support selected large cities in Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam to establish strong greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction commitments, local climate action plans directed by concrete targets, enhanced multi-stakeholder engagement and integrated strategies. The ACP project has the overall objective of contributing to ambitious GHG mitigation targets at the national level through their own ambitious mitigation plans and activities (called the “City Promise”).

In the Philippines, Pasig City serves as the model city while satellite cities include Marikina and Parañaque.

The project recognizes that Pasig City has been implementing environmental initiatives that direct the city towards a low carbon pathway. However, there is a need to strengthen the link of the wide array of initiatives with the city’s potential capacity to reduce its GHG emissions. Therefore, the conduct of community-level GHG emissions inventory is a vital activity that will provide a solid basis for more accurate reduction targets as well as identification and prioritization of effective and realistic mitigation strategies and activities.

Objectives

This consultancy’s overall objective is to assist the completion of Pasig City’s community-level GHG inventory in terms of activity data collection for stationary energy and wastewater sources. Specifically, the consultancy aims to:

  • Conduct on-ground survey to facilitate data collection; (the survey instrument has already been developed by ICLEI)
  • Establish data sets to be used in calculating GHG emissions of the identified sub-sectors; and
  • Provide recommendations on overall activity data collection, analysis and overall management to the technical staff of the local government unit to facilitate knowledge transfer and sustainability of the process.

Duration and Location

The project must be completed within a period of four (4) months, from mid-November 2018 to February 2019.

Expected Output

At the end of the project period, the following outputs are expected:

  • processed activity data sets on 1) energy production and use and 2) wastewater treatment and disposal of buildings (commercial and institutional) and industries operating within the geographical boundaries of Pasig City presented in Excel format
  • conduct of one- to two-day capacity building training for local government staff on sampling procedures, proper data collection, analysis, and overall management including recommendations of appropriate tools. (Costs relating to logistics (venue, meals) of training workshop should not be included in the proposal).
