Global Director, Transport

United States of America, Washington, Washington DC - World Bank Group

  Description   The Infrastructure Practice GroupGlobally, 840 million people live more than 2 kilometers from all-weather roads, 1 billion people lack electricity, and 4 billion people lack Internet access. Access to basic infrastructure services is critical for creating economic opportunities for the poor. The Infrastructure Practice Group is charged with developing sustainable solutions to help close infrastructure gaps in developing and emerging economies. The World Bank Group helps developing countries build smart infrastructure that supports inclusive and sustainable growth, expands markets, creates job opportunities, promotes competition, and contributes to a cleaner future. We help countries address their unique infrastructure needs by working with the public and private sectors. Infrastructure improves lives by connecting people to opportunity. For more information: https://www.worldbank.org/en/topic/infrastructure    The Transport Global Practice:The WB's Infrastructure Practice Group is charged with developing sustainable solutions to help close infrastructure gaps in developing and emerging economies. As part of the Infrastructure Practice Group, the Transport Global Practice (GP) responds to the needs of developing countries for green, resilient, inclusive, efficient, and safe transport solutions. The World Bank's Transport GP has an active portfolio of more than $35 billion across 115 countries. It has about 250 staff, of which about 35 global staff report directly to the Global Director including a Global Transport GP Manager, the rest being distributed across various regional teams.    Duties and accountabilities:The Transport Global Director (GD) reports to the WB's Vice President for Infrastructure (INF VP). Under the guidance of the INF VP, the Transport GD provides leadership to the Bank's global efforts to build effective transport infrastructure in developing and emerging markets. Ultimately, the objective is to support the continued expansion of the Transport GP's impact on the achievement of inclusive mobility and the provision of efficient logistics ?  to connect people to opportunities and businesses to markets ? while significantly increasing results on the climate change and private capital mobilization corporate agendas, and systematically mainstreaming cutting edge digital technologies. While the day to day management of the Transport GP portfolio is the responsibility of Regional Infrastructure Directors (INF RDs), the Transport Global Director (GD) is responsible for providing global strategic leadership to regional transport teams and for driving change in the strategic directions of the World Bank's Transport portfolio. Most importantly, the Transport GD is responsible for driving change in three areas that are at the center of the WB's corporate priorities: significantly accelerating the decarbonization and increased climate resilience of the transport sector in developing countries; achieving a substantial increase in the mobilization of private capital through WB transport operations; and ensuring that transport operations draw on cutting-edge technologies and business models, with special emphasis on incorporating digital innovations.The focus on shifting the direction of WB transport operations towards increasingly contributing to GHG emission reductions and increased resilience to climate shocks is related to the recently adopted WBG Climate Change Action Plan 2021?2025 (CCAP). The new Action Plan represents a shift from interventions around greening projects to greening entire economies and from focusing on inputs to focusing on impacts. The WB is committed to aligning all its financing flows ? including all transport operations ? with the objectives of the Paris Agreement by July 1, 2023, the start of our FY24 fiscal year. Emissions from the transport sector currently comprise approximately 24 percent of total energy related GHG emissions. They have grown faster than those of other sectors and are predicted to increase by 60 percent by 2050 if no action is taken. As a result, no scenario to stabilize climate change is feasible without an aggressive approach to decarbonizing transport.In this regard, the Transport GD is expected to play a leading role in developing a Paris Alignment implementation plan for the Transport GP. Moreover, the Transport GD is responsible for leading the Transport GP's efforts to significantly accelerate its results in the climate arena through impactful country operations and programs, including by means of public and private sector investments and the provision of advisory services for project development and associated policy reforms. This is particularly important since the CCAP has identified Transport as one of the sectors in which the WBG will prioritize its climate action through support for transformative public and private investments ? in addition to Transport, the WBG will prioritize climate action in Energy; Agriculture, Food, Water and Land; Cities; and Manufacturing.To support the alignment of Transport GP operations with the objectives of the Paris Agreement, and to help achieve economy wide climate results in the transport sector, the Transport GD is responsible for strengthening WB collaboration with public and private partners engaged in this agenda ? from private transport companies to donors and developing countries' governments. To that end, one important tool is the recently established Global Facility to Decarbonize Transport (GFDT), a multi-donor trust fund designed to support developing countries in decarbonizing the transport sector. The Transport GD will be responsible for expanding and consolidating this Facility, aiming at pooling and scaling up resources across the development community, using a whole-of-system approach to support transport decarbonization by means of knowledge generation, support for the preparation and financing of WB projects using new technologies and approaches, and advocating for the policy changes needed at the country level for enabling innovation and decarbonization in the transport sector.A second important area in which the Transport GD is expected to provide leadership to the Transport GP and drive change in the WB's transport portfolio is private capital mobilization (PCM).  The WB has adopted ambitious targets for increasing the amount of private financing that is mobilized through WB financed projects, either through private co-financing or through the provision of WB guarantees for privately financed projects ? PCM amounts are calculated based on definitions agreed with other MDBs. For IBRD the WB has committed to achieving a ratio of PCM to IBRD commitments of 25% on average between FY18 and FY30. During FY2018-2020, WB PCM has reached $11.1 bi, with the infrastructure sectors accounting for 74%. However, the transport sector has accounted for only 3% of WB PCM, compared to 62% for energy and 9% for water. Going forward, one important priority for the Transport GD will thus be to provide leadership to transport teams in their efforts to significantly boost the mobilization of private capital in WB projects. This is an important corporate priority, especially considering that to meet its 2030 PCM target, IBRD will need to almost triple the PCM amounts generated in recent years. To achieve substantially improved PCM results in the transport sector, the Transport GD will be expected to ensure that Transport GP work closely and in coordination with the INF Infrastructure Finance, PPPs and Guarantees (IPG) GP on several complementary workstreams. These include, for example and among other workstreams, the development of large-scale transformational PPP operations that can be potentially supported through WB guarantees in order to mobilize reputable developers and commercial financing on optimal terms; the mobilization of institutional investors and commercial finance for transport SOEs through innovative financial structures involving long-term financing from domestic and international sources ? as well as asset monetization and recycling initiatives; and the development of risk sharing facilities with bespoke domestic and regional financial intermediaries to mobilize local currency financing for green transport infrastructure investments by local companies (e.g., for public transport fleet renewal), with a particular focus on nascent markets and IDA countries.A third key area in which the Transport GD is expected to provide leadership to global and regional transport teams and drive change in the transport portfolio has to do with systematically incorporating innovative technologies in transport operations, with special emphasis on embedding digital innovations and business models when applicable. This includes helping ensure that WB operations reflect the various innovations that during recent years have structurally changed how mobility of goods and people is organized and delivered. An example is the concept of Mobility as a Service (MaaS) that has made on-demand multi-modal choices for individual travel available at the fingertip or voice of a smartphone user. Other examples include automated and connected vehicles, the adoption of electric vehicles ?ideally powered by clean and renewable energy sources, the use of drones to deliver medication to remote villages and goods within congested cities, and the leveraging of Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning to support (near) just-in time monitoring, impact assessment and planning of routes. The convergence of technological innovations in digital connectivity, data platforms, automation, and alternative clean energy is leading to significant changes in transport systems. A key responsibility of the Transport GD is to support regional teams in embedding such innovations in their country engagements.  Beyond providing leadership to Transport GP teams across all WB regions in the areas of decarbonization, private sector mobilization and digitalization, the GD is responsible for guiding the GP's efforts to continue to expand the development impact of its operational program, focusing on the objectives of promoting inclusive and safe mobility, and competitive logistics and connectivity. In this regard, the GD will provide leadership to operational teams to ensure that transport projects are designed with a view to connect all people and communities to economic and social opportunities, considering the needs of different groups, including the poor and those in vulnerable situations. The GD will also lead the Transport GP's efforts to achieve sustainable reductions in transport deaths, injuries, and risk in low and middle-income countries, especially through the work done by the Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF), housed in the Global Transport team. Moreover, the GD will lead efforts to expand the WB support for transport investments that can enhance countries' integration to regional and global value chains ? especially lagging regions ? through effective and reliable connectivity and efficient logistics.Key activities of the Transport Global Director: The Transport GP Global Director articulates and refines the vision of the Transport Global Practice, represents the GP both internally and externally, and serves as key partner to the INF Regional Directors in designing and delivering cutting edge transport solutions to WB client countries.  Importantly, the GD is responsible for working with the senior management of private transport companies to facilitate policies and operations that foster private sector participation in WB transport operations.  Effective co-operation with IFC/MIGA, other MDBs and private financiers is accordingly of extreme importance, as is the GD's engagement with internal and external partners in driving efforts to support innovation ? digital or otherwise ? and contributions to decarbonization and increased resilience of the transport sector in client countries.The Global Director is also responsible for the delivery of the lending and analytical products of the Global Unit of the Transport GP, including engagements at the country and global levels, and for leading the Transport GP's Talent Board. This involves providing strategic directions for the professional development of the approximately 250 transport staff working across the WB and ensuring consistency of professional competencies at various levels. Finally, the GD is responsible for corporate reporting on issues related to the Transport GP, management of the GP's trust funds, and for leading the GP's internal and external partnerships.Key focus areas of the Transport Global Director:Strategy & Vision? Sets strategic direction of GP with special attention to driving change to achieve results on the climate, private capital mobilization, and innovation agendas.? Provides technical leadership on the operationalization of the GP strategic directions in regional and country work, including to expand partnerships and co-financing with private transport companies, and to ensure the use of cutting edge and low carbon technologies.Business & Resource Management?

Cold Chain Specialist - P3

Cambodia, Phnom Penh, Phnom Penh - UNICEF

UNICEF works in some of the world's toughest places, to reach the world's most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.   Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.   And we never give up.   For every child, health   The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does ? in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children's rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life ? in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions ? her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society's most disadvantaged citizens ? addressing inequity ? not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations.   The Government of Cambodia has recently decided to set-up and establish Ultra Cold Chain (UCC) capacity in the country for COVID-19 vaccines. In addition, Cambodia is eligible for CCEOP (Cold Chain Equipment Optimisation Plan) for strengthening nationwide the cold chain system for routine immunization. In this context, UNICEF will support the procurement, deployment and maintenance of cold chain equipment, including for new UCC, at central and decentralized levels, as well as ensuring training of national staff, timely forecast of vaccine, injection devices, equipment and other supplies. UNICEF will also support the Government in capacity building, data management and monitoring related to cold chain and logistics and vaccine management. Cambodia has done remarkably well in its vaccination roll-out of COVID-19 vaccines, where almost 85% of adults have been now fully vaccinated, making it one of the most vaccinated countries against COVID-19 in ASEAN and globally. As the Government plans for the future, with regards to vaccinating younger age (where 12-17 years old receiving at least one dose has already reached 85%) and boosters, the Government plans to strengthen and upgrade its cold chain systems and capacities across the country, for both COVID-19 and routine immunisation.   How can you make a difference?   The Cold Chain and Vaccine Management Specialist (L3) will provide dedicated technical expertise to support the implementation of the cold chain and vaccine management component of the country programme for both COVID-19 vaccination and routine immunisation, under the direct supervision of the P4 Immunisation Specialist. The Cold Chain and Vaccine Management Specialist is accountable for providing technical support to Ministry of Health in the planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of national and sub-national cold chain logistics operations and vaccine management for quality programme delivery and effective and efficient supply and logistics systems, to achieve the Government's and UNICEF's immunization goals and objectives of the country. In particular, the incumbent is expected to provide technical support in the establishment of new UCC capacities in thr country, and supporting the implementing of the CCEOP (Cold Chain Equipment Optimization Plan) and EVM (Effective Vaccine Management) improvement plan in Cambodia.
