Title: National expert to develop the regulations on circular economy in the guiding documents for LEP 2020
Time frame: 08/2021-11/2021
Requirement: TWO national experts
Location: home-based
1. CONTEXT
The Hanns Seidel Foundation is a political foundation with its headquarters in Munich (Germany). “In the service of democracy, peace and development” – this motto is present in the work and mission of the Hanns Seidel Foundation. This motto applies both to its activities in Germany and abroad. Since 1995, HSF has supported the integration of Vietnam into the global political spectrum and the ASEAN-Community. Since the establishment of a representative office in 2011, HSF has focused its work in Vietnam on social and environmental policies for sustainable development.
Since 2020, HSF has been providing support to the Institute of Strategy and Policies on Natural Resources and Environment (ISPONRE), the think-tank under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MoNRE) of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam to conduct research and provide policy recommendations on circular economy.
The circular economy (CE) is an approach that focuses on managing and recycling resources in a closed loop to minimize the generation of waste to replace a linear economy. CE can be an important lever to achieve the goals of policymakers such as generating economic growth, creating jobs while reducing environmental impact. Recognizing the benefit of a circular economy approach, the Vietnamese Government has designated circular economy as one of the development directions for the country in the period 2021-2030. Article 142 of the Law on Environmental Protection of 2020 is also dedicated to circular economy, stating that the Government shall elaborate on criteria, a roadmap, and mechanisms for encouraging the implementation of circular economy in conformity with the national socio-economic conditions.
To support ISPONRE in drafting detailed regulations on circular economy in the guiding documents for the implementation of the Law on Environmental Protection 2020, HSF and ISPONRE have agreed to jointly identify TWO national experts on circular economy.
 
2. OBJECTIVE(S)
Through this ToR, TWO national experts (Expert A and B) on Circular Economy are to be identified.
The national experts will work closely with ISPONRE and provide technical expertise on circular economy policy and business models.
