Closing Date: 30 June 2022
Estimated project cost: US$ 40,000 – 50,000



This project aims to support Pakistan’s Ministry of Climate Change in developing a methane roadmap building on previous CCAC projects. 

Expected project outcomes

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

Outcome Indicator Target

1. Pakistan’s government has demonstrated increased capacity for national greenhouse gas emissions inventory development.

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

2. Pakistan’s government includes SLCP mitigation measures in its NDC implementation plan and inventory development process.

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


3. Pakistan’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

The project should deliver at a minimum:

  • A methane roadmap that follows a methodology agreed with the CCAC Secretariat. This should include:
    • Capacity building workshops and support tools to train relevant people in the Ministry of Climate Change on the development of a national greenhouse gas emissions inventory for methane emitting sectors that will support Pakistan’s future reporting under the UNFCCC on Pakistan’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) implementation. This includes training on refined data methodologies.
    • A methane mitigation assessment for key priority measures, including an assessment of the institutional arrangements, the policy and regulatory environment, the cost of implementation, and a monitoring and evaluation framework for methane mitigation as a contribution to the preparation of Pakistan’s NDC implementation plans. An ongoing LEAP-IBC analysis could be used as input.
    • A portfolio of project ideas for methane mitigation in Pakistan considering the inputs generated by the mitigation assessment. This should build on the methane mitigation assessment.

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:

  • 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 


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


  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 Pakistan’s involvement as a CCAC Partner is available on their Partner Page.


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
