Support Module 8

AIM: Supporting the preparation of a pipeline of climate projects and helping them attract investment

SUPPORT ACTIVITIES

  • To assist in strategic planning, decision making and other preparatory activities for a pipeline of concrete adaptation, mitigation and REDD+ investments. This may include scoping, surveys, feasibility studies and other forms of assessments of investment proposals (including environmental, social, gender-related and economic assessments). It may also include supporting the government in assessing linkages of proposals to national plans and policies (National Adaptation Plans, Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions, Low Emission Development Strategies etc.), in assessing the potential for private-sector engagement, and in endorsing selected proposals.
  • To provide targeted technical and financial support to project developers to partially cover the costs of critical milestones in the early development process of selected projects. The aim of this is to enable them to reach financial closure and become bankable, i.e. to attract investment by financial institutions. The support could include milestones such as business plan development and financial structuring.
  • Where relevant, to provide technical assistance to public and private-sector project developers in order to submit proposals to climate funds. This will include training developers on the specific criteria of the targeted funds and on how to manage the requested climate funds.

EXPECTED RESULTS

  • Various viable adaptation, mitigation and REDD+ projects will advance through the early development process and become bankable.
  • Project developers will strengthen their skills to manage and plan projects and programmes, including how to conduct feasibility studies, financial structuring and business plan development.
  • There will be a pipeline of strong adaptation, mitigation and REDD+ proposals for submission to national and international climate funding mechanisms.
