The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) is seeking experts for the following technical assistance projects. Deadline to express the interest: 30 July, 2021

In order to transition to a climate-resilient and low-carbon development, Chile needs to structurally adopt environmentally and socially sound, cost-effective, and better-performing climate technologies on a large and widespread scale. As prioritized in its 2015 NDC, Chile aims to conduct a Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) for which it has already started the identification process of prioritized sectors in 2018. At this stage, Chile has prioritized the following four sectors for a detailed assessment of specific technology needs: (1) Water Resources; (2) Forestry and Agriculture; (3) Energy; and (4) Waste Management. The results of this technical assistance are expected to provide strategies for long-term participatory transformational action in all identified and prioritized sectors to drive climate-resilient and low-carbon growth. The transfer of technology in these sectors will have an impact on reducing the population’s vulnerability and, therefore, increasing resilience to climate change, as well as orient the country towards a low-carbon development path.

A major part of Mongolia’s land is degraded through overgrazing, deforestation, and climate change. Climate change has significant impacts on Mongolia’s grassland ecosystems and the livestock farming which consequently threatens the food security of the country. In the entire value chain of livestock sector, the nomadic livestock herders are most vulnerable as they are directly facing the adverse impacts of climate change on the animals, pasture lands and of the ensuing scarcity of water and grazing for animals. Due to loss of the livestick to erratic weather events and climate disasters (e.g., dzud), the herders are increasing the livestock headcount, in turn leading to overgrazing of pastures. The pastures are lacking nutrition, and thus gaining weight during warm seasons is difficult. This technical assistance will enable the vulnerable communities to derive the best value from the livestock farming while dealing with the adverse impacts of the climate change. The project would contribute to the Nationally Determined Contributions and national priorities of Mongolia in the field of climate change adaptation and mitigation.

Vanuatu has set ambitious targets of reaching 100% renewable energy for electricity production by 2030, requiring 15% energy savings through energy efficiency measures. However, progress towards achieving such measures requires effective policies, relevant legislation, information-based planning, and private sector participation, amongst others, to facilitate activities towards meeting the national energy targets. This technical assistance will contribute to the transition to energy efficient appliances (household refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and lighting products) by making the current standards and labelling programme for appliances more efficient. Vanuatu will be able to increase the enforcement of and compliance with standards and labelling legislations. The identified financing mechanisms will accelerate the purchase of energy efficient appliances through incentivization of consumers.

For this call, the CTCN has initiated a new procurement process through the United Nations Office at Nairobi (UNON). Interested vendors should forward their Expressions of Interest (EOI) along with the signed vendor response form and qualification documents (included in the attachment) addressing the pre-qualification criteria to: [email protected] with a copy to: [email protected].

In case you are not a CTCN network member yet, you may still apply (further details are found in the document).

Please note that this request for expression of interest (EOI) is not an invitation for submission of tenders. Its purpose is to identify companies that would be interested and eligible to participate in the solicitation when issued. Vendors that are deemed qualified upon completion of an objective evaluation of their EOI submission will receive the final tender solicitation documents.
