09.03.2020  15:24
Deadline for applications: 15 April 2020, at 14:00, local time

Description of the procurement:
The full portfolio of climate change mitigation projects and programmes including support channelled through international and non-governmental organisations since 2013 will constitute the basis for the evaluation. Thus, analyses will include consideration of:
— funds from the climate change envelope (CE), provided for both bilateral projects and programmes and through multi-lateral channels, as well as grants to NGOs and finance mobilized through the Investment Fundfor Developing Countries (IFU);
— non-CE bilateral and multilateral development assistance funding, with a focus on projects, programmes and initiatives categorized as ‘principal’ with respect to climate change (using the Rio markers).

An updated overview of climate change mitigation funding will be prepared in the inception phase using data available. This will include grants to projects and programmes through the CE and through bilateral development assistance in a range of countries as well as projects supported through the IFU instruments, notably the Danish Climate Investment Fund (DCIF). The overview will describe support to several multilateral agencies and funds, notably the Green Climate Fund (GCF), the Global Environment Facility (GEF), and the Climate Investment Funds (CIF) of the multilateral development banks (MDBs). Furthermore, major programmes such as the ‘sustainable energy for Africa facility’ (SEFA) at the African Development Bank and support to organisations such as the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) will be considered. Funding has also been provided to various specialized organisations and think tanks whose efforts are important with respect to mitigation, not least in the energy sector. Finally, the portfolio includes grants to Danish non-governmental organisations.

Four country case studies (Ethiopia, Indonesia, South Africa and Vietnam) will be carried out in order to inform the evaluation about the results of climate change funding and to pinpoint the critical issues associated with reducing GHG emissions in developing countries. The countries selected are all associated with Denmark as partners in global climate change mitigation efforts, with contrasting ‘development and carbon profiles’, geo-historical characteristics, political economies, etc.

Deadline for application: 15 April 2020, at 14:00, local time.
