Ministry of Construction (MOC)/ Department of Science Technology and Environment (DOSTE) is implementing the Project “Energy Efficiency Improvement in Commercial and High-Rise Residential Buildings in Viet Nam” (EECB project) funded by GEF/UNDP and co-financed by Viet Nam agencies/institutions and enterprises. Implemented between 2016 and 2020, the project’s goal is to reduce intensity of GHG emissions from the building sector in Viet Nam. In 2016, a project management unit (EECB PMU) was established to support DOSTE/MOC to implement this project.

The project objective is to improve the energy utilization performance of commercial and high-rise residential buildings in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi. Realization of this objective will be achieved through implementation of three following components:

1)      Improved Enforcement of Energy Efficiency Building Code;

2)      Building Market Development Support Initiatives, and

3)      Building EE Technology Applications and Replications.

Each component comprises a number of complementary activities designed to remove barriers to the stringent enforcement of the revised EEBC, and to the greater uptake of building energy efficiency technologies, systems, and practices in commercial and residential buildings. By EOP, the GEF investment will have catalysed direct GHG emission reduction of about 37,680 tCO2e. The cumulative direct reduction in GHG emissions over the lifetime of the project is envisioned to be 236,382 tCO2e.

Up to date, there are a number of key project outputs having been delivered that requires appropriate communication measures in order to create greater and more sustainable project impacts in the construction sector. EECB Project Management Unit (PMU) therefore would like to seek a national communication specialist to help implement project communication activities to achieve expected outputs.
