This project responds to a request by Benin’s Ministry of Environment for technical assistance to support strengthening the national SLCP planning process, initiating SLCP implementation and increasing capacity for methane mitigation.
Through the proposed outputs and activities, the project should achieve the following by its completion:
- The government has increased capacity to assess and model their SLCP emissions, to prioritize and implement SLCP mitigation measures, and to track progress.
- The government endorses the methane roadmap.
The project should deliver at a minimum:
- An improved and updated SLCP emissions inventory, emissions projections, and mitigation assessments as a technical basis for including SLCPs in Benin’s revised NDC, NDC implementation plans, GHG emission inventories, MRV/monitoring, and evaluation frameworks, and for mobilizing resources for the implementation of SLCP priority measures.
- Capacity building workshops and support tools to train relevant persons within key organisations on the further development of mitigation assessment and tracking of implementation progress building on the LEAP analysis. This would include support to:
- Update the LEAP analysis in key sectors, including energy, industries, agriculture, waste and if possible, forestry and land
- Develop long-term 2050 emission projections
- Enter cost data to assess the cost of implementing mitigation measures
- Train a core team in Benin to update it into the future.
- A methane roadmap that follows a methodology agreed with the CCAC Secretariat. Based on methane related assessments, include development of implementation pathways for methane mitigation measures, assessment of the cost of implementation, and monitoring and evaluation framework for methane mitigation. This would be aligned with the NDC implementation plans for its updated NDC.
Applicants are encouraged to propose additional outputs as needed to ensure the expected project outcomes are achieved.
To be eligible for consideration, project proposals must meet the following requirements:
- The application form is complete and submitted before the deadline
- All applicants are registered as a nonprofit organisation, non-governmental organization (NGO), or intergovernmental organization (IGO) and able to prove their status
- All minimum required outputs are included in project plan
- The amount of funding requested falls within the indicated budget range
- Spending caps on 'incidental procurement' expenses are respected (see guidance document above)
- The project duration is less than 24 months
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
- 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.
- Shortlisted applicants will be invited to present their proposals in further detail and to respond to follow-up questions about their application.
- Successful applicants will be invited to develop a Project Implementation Plan and Detailed Budget in consultation with the CCAC Secretariat and relevant CCAC Partners.
- Projects are expected to be launched in 2023.
