Sectors Environment, Governance
Language English
Status Tender phase
CV Deadline 2019-05-24
Background

Despite the fact that Nigeria is working hard to fulfil its pledges towards UNFCCC and that the NDC implementation is in the process of being finalized, an additional effort shall be made. In particular, a thorough job shall be carried out, focusing on correct measurement of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) data, data quality, completeness and accuracy, climate change mainstreaming into national and sectoral development plans2as well as related adaptation-mitigation co-benefits.

Moreover, effects of climate change should be disseminated and the population and the private sector informed. This is not the case yet, mainly due to the lack of a climate change communication strategy and guidelines.

Finally, waste shall be analysed, quantified, managed and then, when the baseline will be available, tackled as one of the sectors supporting the country in reaching its 45% conditional NDC target.

Objectives

The overall objective of the project is to support the development and implementation of Nigerian Climate Change Response Program (NCCRP) to guarantee country’s economic growth and development strategies while meeting its conditional 45% NDC targets by 2030.

The specific objective is to contribute to the creation of Nigeria’s GHG emission profile with the aim of pinpointing mitigation actions reducing energy use and costs in favour of renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions. This will be mainly achieved through the creation of sectoral MRVs (e.g. for energy and waste sectors) and a waste baseline.

Activities

The results to be achieved by the Contractor as per different three components will be at the least the followings: 1) The MRV framework is established - Institutionalize the MRV system set up through official binding procedures for all line ministries. - Settle the MRV for the energy and the waste sectors. - Capacity development of data management and reporting procedures.

2) Climate change knowledge is disseminated and increased - Environmental and climate change education is spread - To increase the level of knowledge of Nigerian climate action at the level of Parliament, Assembly and Governmental body - To raise awareness of the Nigerian climate change debate

3) Waste sectoral baseline and related sectoral emission profile are settled at Federal level and at State level. (e.g. Kano State and Ogun State).
