CTCN Call For Technical Assistance Proposals: Optimizing Access To Funding Of Technology Projects For Adapting To Climate Change In Guinea

United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is looking for member of the CTCN Network that can provide services related to optimizing access to funding of technology projects for adapting to climate change in the Republic of Guinea.

The  Republic  of  Guinea  has  been  experiencing  climate  disruptions  such  as  drop  in  rainfall,  recurrent  droughts since the 1970s, early and frequent flooding (Kankan - 2001, Boké - 2003, Gaoual - 2005, etc.) and the disruption of rainfall patterns. These factors have resulted in the drying up of watercourses and the  soil,  the  destruction  of  plant  cover,  a  drop  in  agricultural  output  and  an  increase  in  diseases  of  hydrological origin, especially in the north of the country.

In  order  to  address  these  challenges,  the  government  developed  in  2007  the  National  Adaptation  Programmes  of  Action  (NAPA).  In addition the Guinea has recently developed other policies directly related to climate change, including the First National Communication,  the National Investment Programme for the Environment (NIPE) and the  Intended  Nationally  Determined  Contribution  (INDC),  as  well  as  development  policies  such  as  the Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP), Five-Year Development Plan 2011-2015, etc.  However, the implementation of project ideas and strategic priorities put forward by political decision makers and experts remains very limited in the country due to the lack of expertise required to develop bankable projects that can be funded by donors. 

There is a crucial need both to develop projects that will optimise Guinea's access to funding and to guarantee the presence of local experts sufficiently competent to continue mobilising the financial resources required to adapt to climate change in the country.

The objective of the CTCN technical assistance is to train national experts (champions) in financial and organizational engineering to mobilize appropriate funding in order to implement priority climate-change adaptation projects.

Complete Offer must be submitted via the UNIDO e-Procurement portal:https://procurement.unido.org/  by 23 June 2016, 17:00 Vienna, Austria time.
