Invitation to Tender: TAAS-0051 Strengthening ICCTF’s Capacity to Access Global Climate Funds

Submission deadline: 12pm UK time 14th January 2015

CDKN is assisting the Indonesia Climate Change Trust Fund (ICCTF) with efforts to enhance understanding and capability for tapping global climate finance, particularly the Green Climate Fund (GCF). The ICCTF is on its way to becoming a self-managed national trust fund after completing a pilot phase under the UNDP assisted PREP ICCTF scheme (2010-2014). A key indicator of success for the ICCTF in this new role will be the demonstrated ability to scale up financing for delivering national mitigation and adaptation objectives. Moreover, advanced strategies and mechanisms are expected that focus on innovation and transformational aspects of climate finance. Achieving direct access to global climate funds is one of the ways the ICCTF hopes to mobilise resources for national use. CDKN is arranging expert services to help the ICCTF assess eligibility for accreditation to global sources of funding such as the GCF, and to enhance capability generally for accessing international finances.

We are seeking a supplier to strengthen ICCTF’s capability to meet international standards in accessing and delivering climate finance and learning from global best practice.
