TENDER: RECRUITMENT OF A TECHNICAL CONSULTANT TO SUPPORT A STUDY ON ANALYZING THE POTENTIAL FOR DEVELOPMENT OF CARBON PRICING APPROACHES IN JURISDICTIONS IN THE EASTERN AND SOUTHERN AFRICAN REGION.

 

The UNFCCC Regional Collaboration Centre (RCC) Kampala in collaboration with UN Environment and GIZ Carbon Markets Programme-Uganda,  is seeking to recruit highly competent, motivated and professional consultants to conduct a study to ascertain the potential of application of Carbon Pricing approaches for jurisdictions in the Eastern and Southern African region.‘’  This Consultancy is for a duration of 20-25 days.

 

Brief Background

 

In an effort to maximize the impact of their efforts to address climate change and support member states in the achievement of the goals of the Paris Agreement, the UN secretariat for climate change (UNFCCC) and the UN Environment agreed on a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in December 2017 which aims, inter alia, at strengthening capacity building at national and regional levels and support research and evidence based climate policy making.

 

The Collaborative Instruments for Ambitious Climate Action (CI-ACA) is a project implemented by the UNFCCC through its Regional Collaboration Centres (RCCs) with the aim to assist Parties in the development of carbon pricing approaches for implementing their Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) under the Paris Agreement and foster cooperation. Most jurisdictions interested in developing instruments for carbon pricing/markets will require support at different levels: (i) to identify the options available and how these fit with their own circumstances and objectives; (ii) to elaborate concrete proposals to establish instruments; (iii) to adopt at the national level an instrument and (iv) to implement on the ground their instruments. The CI-ACA initiative offers support to jurisdictions, in accordance with their needs, for developing carbon pricing instruments, even for jurisdictions which have just started considering the idea.

 

This study will aim to gather information on the potential and feasibility for carbon pricing/market instruments with particular focus on the legal framework for selected countries in the Region, in addition to assessing the potential, readiness and needs of countries with regard to the possible use of carbon pricing.
