Opening Date: 8 June 2022
Closing Date: 30 June 2022
Estimated project cost: US$ 100,000 – 125,000



The aim of this project is to support Côte d’Ivoire’s Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development in expanding short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) planning and implementation processes and increasing capacity for methane mitigation.

Expected project outcomes

Through the proposed outputs and activities, the project should achieve the following by its completion:

Outcome Indicator Target

1. Côte d'Ivoire’s government has increased capacity to assess and model their SLCP emissions, to prioritize and implement SLCP mitigation measures, and to track progress.

Number of government entities with a demonstrated improved capacity for SLCP action 1

2. Côte d'Ivoire’s government endorses the methane roadmap.

Number of action plans, roadmaps, strategies, or other future plans with SLCP targets or mitigation measures formally adopted, endorsed, and/or implemented


Minimum required outputs

Projects should deliver at a minimum: 

  • An improved and updated SLCP emissions inventory, emissions projections, and mitigation assessments as technical basis for including SLCPs in Cote d’Ivoire’s revised NDC, NDC implementation plans, greenhouse gas emission inventories, MRV/monitoring and evaluation frameworks, and air quality management processes. This work should also set out how to mobilise resources for implementation of SLCP priority measures. 
  • Capacity building workshops and support tools to train relevant persons within key organisations such as CIAPOL (Centre Ivoirien Antipollution) on the further development of mitigation assessment and tracking of implementation progress building on the SLCP analysis. This would include support to: 
    • Update the SLCP 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 Cote d’Ivoire to update it into the future. 
  • A methane roadmap that follows a methodology agreed with the CCAC Secretariat. Based on methane related assessments, this roadmap will include the 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. 

Eligibility requirements

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
  • Requested funding falls within the indicated cost range and the project duration is less than 24 months
  • Budget criteria are met and spending caps on expenses are respected

How to apply

Eligible applicants are invited to apply before the deadline by downloading the Application Form.

It is recommended that applicants review the Guidance for Applicants prior to completing the Application Form.

The completed Application Form should be submitted to before 30 June 2022.

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

Evaluation process

  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 by 22 July 2022 and to respond to follow-up questions about their application. 
  3. Shortlisted applicants will be informed of the final decision regarding their proposal by 31 August 2022. Successful applicants will be invited to develop a Project Implementation Plan and Detailed Budget in consultation with the CCAC Secretariat and relevant CCAC Partners.


More information regarding Cote d’Ivoire’s involvement as a CCAC Partner is available on their Partner Page.


Implementation pathway

  • Refers to the identification of concrete actions for mitigation priorities 

Methane roadmap

Should be in line with a modality agreed with the CCAC Secretariat. At minimum, a “methane roadmap” must: 

  • Identify methane mitigation pathways. 
  • Assess the cost of implementation. 
  • Assess the institutional arrangements for implementation. 
  • Develop a monitoring and evaluation framework for the methane mitigation pathways. 

It may also include: 

  • Improvements to the national methane inventory 

Mitigation pathway

  • Refers to mitigation pathways consistent with limiting warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. As per IPCC, the assessed pathways describe integrated, quantitative evolutions of all emissions over the 21st century associated with global energy and land use and the economy. This also includes setting of mitigation targets compared to a reference baseline scenario.
