The Danish Institute for Human Rights (Denmark’s national human rights institution) is seeking one or two consultants to prepare a background paper analysing the energy transition in select SubSaharan African countries, focusing in particular on associated human rights implications.

The scoping paper is an internal deliverable as part of the Project and will serve to identify the salient human rights issues specific to the energy transition in the Sub-Saharan African region (including through analysis on three to five select focus countries) and to identify key actors and 2/3 fora involved in energy transition related dialogue and policy-setting. The scoping paper will be used to inform decisions on engagement activities under the second year of the Project (2021) and the development of a policy briefing, which will include key recommendations for state, business and civil society actors to address the human rights implications of the energy transition in the region.
