Description

The Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT) supports countries in developing their capacity to build and manage a strong transparency framework that enables them to effectively implement the Paris Agreement. To assist with this, ICAT has built up a toolbox with methodologies and modelling tools that can be tailored to country needs. Activities encompass direct country support and establishing regional support centres and networks, including one for Central Asian countries.

ICAT hereby is seeking grantee(s) to provide technical support and capacity building to the Regional Environmental Centre for Central Asia (CAREC) and its member countries in Central Asia for transparency related to climate actions and policies based on country and regional priorities and needs with the aim of equipping the countries in the region with the 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.

The technical support will be provided within the framework of the ICAT Strategic Approach (https://climateactiontransparency.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/ICAT-Strategy.pdf) for three years until October 2024.

The foreseen technical support will be implemented under ICAT’s overall country engagement approach, covering the Regional Climate Action Transparency Hub for Central Asia encompassing the five (5) Central Asian States: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.

Entities interested in submitting proposals in response to this CFP are hereby invited to prepare proposals in accordance with the requirements and procedure set out in this CFP by 28 September 2021, 23:59 CEST. (Original deadline was 21 September 2021, 23:59 CEST)
