Invitation to Tender: TAAS-0050 Supporting the INDC process in Bangladesh

CDKN is looking for a technical international supplier to partner with a local team in supporting the Government of Bangladesh in preparing its Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs). While developing countries are not the greatest contributors to climate change, they still undertake mitigation efforts at the national level. Developing Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) under the UNFCCC is a process that will identify these efforts, and analyse where there is potential to increase ambition domestically so all countries can work collectively towards reducing emissions. Countries are being urged to share their INDCs in time for the global deal at CoP 21 in Paris.
