British Embassy Call for Proposals: Colombia’s Technical Assistance Programme

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 8 August 2018

The British Embassy Bogota is seeking proposals for its Colombia’s Technical Assistance Programme.

The International Climate Fund (ICF) in the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), has allocated up to £2 million for technical assistance activities in Colombia through an open and competitive call for proposals.

Aims

The BEIS ICF Technical Assistance Programme aims to:

  • Contribute to the reduction of Colombia’s emissions and poverty reduction by improving the capacity and capability of key institutions (national, subnational, non-state).
  • Support demand-led technical assistance that prioritises implementation and helps raise climate ambition, by addressing barriers, constraints and areas of opportunity at different levels of government based on the country’s political and economic context and sectoral priorities.

Themes

  • Diffusion of non-conventional renewable energy sources to ensure an affordable, resilient, and low emissions energy system
  • Addressing key policy, finance and technical barriers to scale up the energy efficiency market
  • Financial and non-financial incentives (existing and new) and better access to innovative finance instruments, combined with a more comprehensive and coherent policy and regulatory framework, to accelerate the deployment of low emission vehicles
  • Improving energy access through decentralised renewable energy generation models in areas that complement other UK forests and land use programmes
  • Sustainable tourism and scientific research as a strategy to protect forests, ensure sustainable rural development and consolidation of peace in areas that have been affected by conflict

Crosscutting themes

  • Implementation of Colombia’s Green Growth Policy to consolidate long-term GHG emission reduction and sustainable economic development
  • Improved understanding of investment opportunities and risks in green growth and support implementation of Colombia’s roadmap to establish a green bond market
  • Operationalisation of Colombia’s MRV system for mitigation action, including a transparent registry, to track progress and ensure NDC implementation

Project types

This C4P request implementation partners to submit concept bids for the following project types:

  • Year 1 projects should require funding from the ICF of between £250,000 – £500,000 (indicative), for up to one year of activity from the point of signing the grant agreement. The total project budget may exceed the amount requested from the ICF with co-funding and exceed the timescale of one year, if the activity applied for is an initial phase or component within a larger multi-year project.
