UNDP seeks a qualified National Consultant to provide environmental assessment of the potential effects and impacts of removal of fuel subsidies and of fuel taxes.

The National Target Program on Energy Efficiency (NTP-EE) is supported by a number of donors. Energy efficiency and energy generation projects were also launched in Viet Nam and new projects are underway to introduce international technology, for example with Global Environment Facility (GEF) funding. However, green house gas mitigation challenges have not yet been integrated into urban and industrial development plans. Furthermore, whilst energy demand is rising at an estimated 8-12 percent annually, the energy supply will have to increase dramatically over the next years. This gives an unprecedented chance to Viet Nam to develop a low carbon economy as it will have to build massively energy production plants in the near future. Such development will depend on the incentives offered by the government.  Moreover, there remains a large potential for improving energy efficiency of buildings and transport.

A research programme aims to assess the potential effects of high prices of different fossil fuels as a result of phasing out of fossil fuel subsidies and imposing additional tax, on the general economy, industrial development, consumer behaviour, income distribution, as well as revenue collection, and the use of this additional revenue for social and other purposes.

The research has three elements:

1) Value chain and policy analysis of fossil fuel trade, subsidy and tax, which will differentiate between different fossil fuels and fuel uses

2) CGE modelling to assess the economic and social impact of tax on fossil fuels; and

3) Environmental Assessment of the potential effects and impacts of removal of fuel subsidies and of fuel taxes.

A national Consultant is required to involve in the 3rd issue of the research.
