World Council of Credit Unions seeks an Environmental Compliance Specialist for the Credit for Agriculture Producers (CAP) Project in Ukraine, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), to ensure that all CAP activities comply with international and local regulations on environmental compliance. She/he will work closely with the CAP team and coordinate with the USAID environmental compliance team to design and implement environmental compliance screenings of CAP activities, ensuring compliance with 22 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 216 USAID Environmental Procedures requirements, USAID approved AGRO Initial Environmental Examination (IEE) recommendations, and Ukrainian environmental laws and regulations.
About the Project:
CAP seeks to revitalize the credit union sector in Ukraine by creating a more transparent legal and regulatory framework for credit union operations in Ukraine to both promote growth and reduce risks, while improving access to agricultural finance for agricultural and rural micro, small, and medium enterprises through credit unions. Specifically, the project is expected to: (1) strengthen credit union regulator and national association capacity; (2) advocate for an improved and updated legislative framework to meet European Union (EU) standards, enabling credit unions to compete with other financial institutions; and (3) address constraints preventing credit unions from expanding outreach and delivering high-quality lending to the agricultural sector.
The Environmental Compliance Specialist Consultant will work with CAP and its partners to ensure compliance of all CAP activities with the Ukrainian and USAID's environmental regulations, as well as help identify and mitigate environmental risks.
Scope of work:
The consultant will be expected to travel outside of Kyiv as needed to reach rural credit unions, as feasible pending COVID-19 travel restrictions.
