Description

The Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT) is seeking proposals to provide technical support and capacity building to developing countries for transparency related to climate actions and policies based on country/regional priorities and needs with the aim of equipping countries/regions with capacity to effectively assess the impacts of their climate policies and actions and fulfil their transparency commitments under international frameworks, in particular the Enhanced Transparency Framework of the Paris Agreement.

Below are the categories of grants that interested organisations/institutions can apply for:

Category 1: Grant(s) to support new ICAT partner countries;

Category 2: Grant(s) to deepen engagement in (already engaged) ICAT partner countries with ongoing support projects (including a second phase for new partner countries supported under category 1);

Category 3: Grant(s) to provide technical support to the regional climate action transparency hub for the Central African Forest Commission (COMIFAC) Member States.

ICAT has built over its first 5 years a strong foundation for its activities in terms of tools, methodologies, knowledge, experience and active networks in some 40 developing countries.

ICAT is an unincorporated multi-stakeholder partnership steered and funded by the Donor Steering Committee (DSC), conformed by its donors, the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF); ClimateWorks Foundation (CWF); the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety (BMU); and the Italian Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea (IMELS), as well as the UNFCCC and UNOPS as ex-officio members. The Initiative is managed by UNOPS on behalf of the DSC. Within UNOPS, the ICAT Secretariat manages ICAT day-to-day activities, coordinating and guiding the work of the implementing partners.

The ICAT infrastructure is tailored to support countries in developing their capacity to build and manage a strong transparency framework that can enable them to effectively implement the Paris Agreement. Core features of ICAT, in continuity of work accomplished and under way, are:

●  Policy focus, aimed at enabling transformational change;

●  Agility in responding to country needs, anchored in sustainable development assessments;

●  Flexibility to innovate and create replicable approaches;

●  Sound methodologies and tools; and

●  Peer-to-peer collaboration and knowledge sharing.

Deadline for submission of proposals: 17th March 2021 (by 17:00, Copenhagen, Denmark Time).
