Terms of Reference

Generic Terms of Reference – Environmental Field Advisor

Generic Terms of Reference – Environmental Expert Emergency Missions

The Terms of Reference (TOR) provide the overall objective and outline of the mission. The expert is expected to discuss and adjust these with the Team Leader / Requesting Party upon arrival in country. The TOR is regularly updated, and/or adjusted as part of the development of the mission Plan of Action (see UNDAC Handbook – section B.1.4).

When deploying with an UNDAC team, the Environmental Expert is expected to contribute specific technical expertise, but otherwise follow the overall UNDAC team reporting lines and mechanisms, regardless of the deploying organization.

Environmental Field Advisors report to the Head of the OCHA Country Office where they are based.
