Opening Date: 8 June 2022
Closing Date: 30 June 2022
Estimated project cost: US$ 150,000 – 175,000
This project aims to assist the Ministry of the Environment and Forest Resources in implementing its short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) mitigation priorities building on building on previous CCAC projects.
Expected project outcomes
Through the proposed outputs and activities, the project should achieve the following by its completion:
1. Togo’s government and key national experts have increased capacity assess and model their SLCP emissions, to prioritize and implement SLCP mitigation measures, and to track progress in alignment with the revised NDC.
|Number of government entities with a demonstrated improved capacity for SLCP action||1|
2. Togo’s government endorses a methane roadmap.
Number of action plans, roadmaps, strategies, or other future plans with SLCP targets or mitigation measures formally adopted, endorsed, and/or implemented
3. Togo’s government secures catalysed funding for SLCP action.
Amount of external funding (“catalysed funding”) for SLCP actions
|At least 3 proposals|
Minimum required outputs
The project should deliver at a minimum:
- Training to sectoral experts on planning actions to reduce methane and other SLCPs.
- Training to experts to use the LEAP-IBC tool with the aim to:
- Include SLCPs into greenhouse gas emission inventories during implementation of Togo’s revised NDC
- Assess mitigation priorities and monitor progress in the implementation of mitigation measures
- Update LEAP analysis in key sectors, including developing emissions projections and assessing cost of implementation
- Enable a national team to update the analysis in the future
- A monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) framework for methane and other SLCP actions.
- SLCPs and methane reduction integrated into Togo's revised Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) implementation plans by estimation of costs of mitigation measures and integration of SLCPs into MRV and transparency reports.
- An improved greenhouse inventory for methane from the main sources: Energy, Agriculture, Waste
- A methane roadmap that follows a methodology agreed with the CCAC Secretariat and is aligned with the national SLCP plan and NDC implementation plans. This should include an assessment of the methane mitigation potential and the cost and benefits of measures in the Energy, Agriculture, Waste sectors.
- A portfolio of project proposals for implementing priority mitigation measures, considering the inputs generated by the mitigation assessment to be submitted to the national budget, funding agencies, and international donors.
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

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 by 22 July 2022 and to respond to follow-up questions about their application.
- 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 Togo’s involvement as a CCAC Partner is available on their Partner Page.
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
