Contract Award: “Supporting the government of Ethiopia with developing a pipeline programme and investment strategy to access funds from the Green Climate Fund”

The Green Climate Fund is expected to be one of a range of funding channels to deliver on the long-term climate finance goal to mobilise US$100 billion per annum in climate finance by 2020 from a range of sources, both public and private. It is assumed that the board will be in a position to approve programme proposals towards the later part of 2015. In line with this timeline, developing countries are developing programme proposals to maximise opportunities that may emerge from the operationalization of the GCF.

This work will support the government of Ethiopia to a) develop a climate investment strategy that aligns with or contributes to meeting the objectives of the government’s Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP) and b) to support the Government of Ethiopia with developing a pipeline programme to be submitted to the green climate fund (GCF).

The project is designed to enhance Ethiopia’s prospects to access international sources of finance, in particular the GCF. Developing an investment strategy and a pipeline programme can support the Government of Ethiopia plan its climate change investment according to the key development plans the country is setting, as well as positioning the government of Ethiopia to be one of the first countries considered to receive funds from the GCF.
