Chad – Develop a National SLCP Plan and National Methane Roadmap [TD-23-001]


This project responds to a request made by the Ministry of Environment, Water, and Fisheries to develop a National Short-Lived Climate Pollutant (SLCP) Plan and National Methane Roadmap for Chad. More information on Chad’s involvement in the CCAC is available on its partner profile.

At minimum, the project is expected to develop a National SLCP Plan, a National Methane Roadmap, recommendations to include SLCP mitigation measures and targets in Chad’s updated NDC, Fourth Communication, Biennial Transparency Report (BTR), and Biennial Update Report (BUR), develop an integrated greenhouse gas (GHG) and SLCP monitoring, reporting, and verification (MRV) framework, and deliver training to policy makers to SLCP emissions reductions, priority mitigation measures and emissions modelling.  This project is expected to launch in Q4 2023.

Guidance on the CCAC’s National Planning Methodology for reducing short-lived climate pollutants is available in the Resource Library.

National SLCP Plan 

Chad finalized its first integrated national emission inventory on SLCPs, greenhouse gases, and air pollutants in 2020 with CCAC support. This work enhanced national capacity for SLCP mitigation, and the country is now seeking support in developing a National SLCP Plan which includes GHG and SLCP emissions, and a mitigation, co-benefits, and impact assessment for main source sectors. These updates will inform the 2025 update to Chad’s NDC, and results from the project should be integrated into the fourth National Communication, the BTR, and BUR2.

National Methane Roadmap

As a participating country to the Global Methane Pledge, Chad has made a voluntary commitment towards the objective of reducing global methane emissions by 30% by 2030 compared to 2020 levels. This project will develop a National Methane Roadmap for Chad, identifying priority methane mitigation measures and implementation pathways across priority sectors such as agriculture, waste, and fossil fuels. This project will complement Chad’s request for support to develop a National SLCP Plan. 

National Methane Roadmaps leverage emerging data and techniques to enhance emissions inventories, identify compelling abatement strategies, and define methane related policies, programs, and funding streams for implementation. As a Core Implementer of the Global Methane Pledge, the CCAC is supporting the development of methane roadmaps to assist countries in achieving methane emissions reductions this decade.


This project will require close cooperation and engagement with the Ministry of Environment, Water, and Fisheries, and should involve relevant government agencies involved in greenhouse gas inventories and national communications. 


Applicants are encouraged to propose additional outputs as needed to ensure the expected project outcomes are achieved. Applicants can determine the scope of outputs if not specified. The project is expected to deliver at a minimum:

1. The Government of Chad endorses the National SLCP Plan by the end of the project.

Indicator: Number of action plans, roadmaps, strategies, or other future plans with SLCP targets or mitigation measures.

Output 1.1: National SLCP Plan for Chad which includes at a minimum:

  • Integrated GHG and SLCP emissions inventory and emissions projections
  • Mitigation assessments
  • Quantification of co-benefit
  • Implementation pathways in priority SLCP sectors that include existing policies and plans 
  • Cost of implementation and sources of funding 
  • Summary for policy makers 

2. The Government of Chad endorses the National Methane Roadmap by the end of the project or soon after.

Indicator: Number of action plans, roadmaps, strategies, or other future plans with SLCP targets or mitigation measures. 

Output 2.1: A National Methane Roadmap developed in line with a modality agreed with the CCAC Secretariat. Implementers developing methane roadmaps should also participate in the CCAC’s Methane Roadmap Action Programme (M-RAP), which provides virtual workshops on where to find data, tools, and guidelines for analysis. At a minimum, a National Methane Roadmap should include: 

  • A needs assessment which identifies gaps in existing commitments and policies for methane mitigation 
  • A mitigation assessment including priority mitigation measures, mitigation potential, and cost-benefit analysis of implementation in high-emitting sectors
  • An assessment of the institutional arrangements for implementation
  • A monitoring and evaluation framework for identified methane mitigation measures
  • Identified funding sources to support implementation of the measures

3. The Government of Chad includes SLCP mitigation measures and/or targets in its updated NDC, Fourth National Communication, BTR, and BUR, by 2025. 

Indicator: Number of NDCs targeting SLCPs

Output 3.1: Recommendations to include SLCP mitigation measures and targets in Chad’s updated NDC, Fourth National Communication, BTR, and BUR. 

4. The Government of Chad adopts enhanced GHG and SLCP monitoring, reporting, and verification (MRV) system by the end of the project.

Indicator: Number of monitoring, reporting, and verification (MRV) systems developed or updated that include SLCPs. 

Output 4.1: An integrated GHG and SLCP monitoring, reporting, and verification (MRV) framework. 

5. The Government of Chad has increased capacity to assess and model their SLCP emissions, to prioritize and implement measures, and to track progress by the end of the project.

Indicator: Number of government entities with improved capacity for SLCP action. 

Output 5.1: Training to policy makers on SLCP emissions reductions, priority mitigation measures, and emissions modelling.


Eligibility requirements

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

  • Complete and submitted before the deadline
  • Submitted by a non-governmental organization (NGO), intergovernmental organization (IGO), or other not-for-profit entity. Governments are not eligible to apply directly for funding in this call.
  • Requested funding is within the estimated budget amount, or includes a clear justification for additional expenses 
  • Project duration is less than 24 months

Budget criteria are met and spending caps on expenses are respected

For-profit entities may only participate in the project as stakeholders, co-funders, or end users. Applicants are encouraged to include for-profit entities in the development of the project proposal and/or during project implementation if their ownership of the proposed solution is key to the project’s success.  

How to apply

Eligible applicants are invited to apply any time before 23 May 2023 using the Application Form and Excel Budget Form. Specific instructions on completing these forms are available in both documents. 

Applicants may choose to follow the cost range proposed above OR propose a different budget supported by a clear justification. However, applicants should note that cost efficiency will play a significant role in the selection process.

The completed Application Form and Excel Budget Form should be submitted to secretariat [at] (secretariat[at]ccacoalition[dot]org).

Evaluation criteria

Proposals will be evaluated against the following criteria:

  • Presents a clear plan to achieve the required outcomes during the lifetime of the project or soon after
  • Includes a plan or activities to enable the scaling up of, replication of, or sustained use of project results over time
  • Sets out a clear approach for enabling or contributing to SLCP emissions reductions and resulting co-benefits
  • Involves relevant stakeholders 
  • Approach is grounded in a strong understanding of relevant risks
  • Complements other relevant initiatives, funding mechanisms, and existing policy processes
  • Applicant demonstrates necessary capacity and experience to perform the work
  • A realistic, cost-effective, and clearly justified budget and approach is proposed
