The Procurement Team of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) invites Firms to bid for the services of Consulting Firm for the Development of the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) Implementation Plan for the Philippines
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s Global Development Network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. UNDP’s core vision is to help countries achieve simultaneous eradication of poverty and significant reduction of inequalities and exclusion through three main areas of work which are: (1) sustainable development (2) inclusive and effective democratic governance, and (3) climate and disaster resilience.
The Philippine Government through CCC was granted support funds by the European Community for the development of its I/NDC Action Plan under the UNDP Low Emission Capacity Building (LECB) Project. It provided technical assistance, among others, for the development of the country’s NDC Roadmap/Framework which included: (a) proposed institutional structure/organization and arrangements for designing, formulating and implementing the NDCs; (b) documentation/ institutionalization of NDC preparation, planning, formulation and implementation processes; and (c) sectoral measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) system framework to monitor NDC implementation.
The important challenge is transforming these NDCs into tangible actions that lead to long term, zero-carbon and climate-resilient development. Countries will need sustained financial, capacity building and technical support to regularly prepare, implement, and report on national actions under the PA and more specifically against NDC targets for reducing GHGs. The UNDP NDC Support Programme will support Governments to achieve transformational change by using NDC implementation as a mechanism to scale up investment in climate change and deliver sustainable development. The Programme will be implemented in the country as “NDC Support Project for the Philippines (NSPP)”.
The abovementioned Bidding Documents are attached in the Documents Section of this Notice. Deadline for the submission of proposals is on December 06, 2018.
