Preparation of the Comprehensive Climate Resilient Green Economy National Capacity Support Programme

The Government of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia has launched a Climate-Resilient Green Economy (CRGE) initiative to pursue low carbon economic development and build resilience within the economy. The CRGE sets the goal of reaching middle-income country status by 2025, with zero net growth in greenhouse gas (GHG) emission and building resilience in the economy. The CRGE Facility has been set up as the Government’s vehicle to mobilize, access and combine domestic and international, public and private sources of finance to support the institutional building and implementation of Ethiopia’s CRGE Strategy. The CRGE Facility Secretariat is the core institution to coordinate the CRGE. The Facility Secretariat is made up of the Technical Team (housed in the Ministry of Environment and Forest (MEF)) and the Finance Team (housed in the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development (MOFED).

The overall objective of the consultancy is to help to design the guiding framework to enable CRGE implementing ministries to identify existing capacity gaps and needs to implement and manage capacity development activities required to operationalise the CRGE.

The LTS team will:

  1. Define the core functions/competencies required to operationalise the CRGE based on the seven capacities of each institutions involved in the CRGE, for the Implementing and Executing Entities;
  2. Build the knowledge of the core CRGE Secretariat team to develop a comprehensive understanding of the process from design to implementation;
  3. Map the capacity efforts implemented against the core functions of CRGE implementation at the enabling, implementing and executing level, including an assessment of current and previous capacity building activities;
  4. Identify provision of tools and methods that can be used to formulate, implement and evaluate capacity building;
  5. Develop guiding framework, which will help CRGE implementing ministries to assess their capacity gaps and needs;
  6. Develop a framework guideline that will define capacity building in the CRGE process as well as clearly describing how implementing entities can apply to acquire funding from the Facility as well as the approval process needed to do so. This guiding framework should span for 5 years 2015-2020.

The LTS team is working closely with Ethiopia GGGI, the CRGE team and Government counterparts to develop competency frameworks, assessment guides, capacity development plans.
