Nigeria - Development of Tier 2 Emission Inventory and Mitigation Assessment for the agriculture sector [NG-22-004]

by CCAC - 28 July, 2023


This project responds to a request by the Federal Ministry of Environment and Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development. The Ministry is seeking support to improve Nigeria’s ability to measure emissions and emission reductions from the agriculture sector, specially through an enhanced national greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory and systems for measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of mitigation actions in the agriculture sector.


  • The government increases its capacity for GHG inventory compilation 
  • The government adopts the evaluation of mitigation options in the agriculture sector and integrates the recommendations in its NDC implementation plan 


The project should deliver at a minimum:  

  • GHG and short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) emissions estimates from the agriculture sector, including methane and black carbon from the livestock (enteric methane & manure), paddy rice and open agricultural burning, for an appropriate time series  
  • GHG and SLCP emissions projections into the future for a baseline scenario for the agriculture sector 
  • GHG inventory compilation training, including guidance and tools on using IPCC Tier 2 methods, and action planning to strengthen institutional and individual technical capacities of representatives from the Federal Ministry of Environment and Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and other national institutions to apply tools to assess agricultural GHG and SLCP emissions and update over time 
  • An evaluation of mitigation options in the agriculture sector to quantify their GHG emission reduction potential to provide recommendations as to the specific policies and measures that can achieve Nigeria’s NDC commitments. 


To be eligible for consideration, project proposals must meet the following requirements: 

  • Are complete and submitted before the deadline 
  • Are submitted by a non-governmental organization (NGO), intergovernmental organization (IGO), or other not-for-profit entity

Proposals will be evaluated against the following criteria:

  • Quality: the clarity of the proposed outputs and activities and the extent to which they will deliver the expected outcomes
  • Experience: evidence of the project team’s understanding of the national planning process and short-lived climate pollutants, and their ability to deliver the proposed project
  • Value for money: the level of funding requested for project delivery
  • Alignment: how well the proposal demonstrates its contribution to the CCAC 2030 Strategy and National Planning, Policy, and Implementation Engagement Strategy


  1. A preliminary review of proposals submitted by the deadline will be conducted by members of the CCAC Secretariat, Funding Task Team and Board, in consultation with relevant CCAC Partners.  
  2. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to present their proposals in further detail and to respond to follow-up questions about their application.
  3. Successful applicants will be invited to develop a Project Implementation Plan and Detailed Budget in consultation with the CCAC Secretariat and relevant CCAC Partners.
  4. Projects are expected to be launched in 2023.
