Procurement Notice for Solar 4 Health
Overview :

The Green Climate Fund (GCF) is a financial operating entity of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) which is established to contribute to the collective efforts of the international community to combat climate change. The GCF plans to fund programmatic approaches that provide an opportunity for a transformational shift in countries’ climate resilience and green economies, prioritizing a balanced approach between adaptation and mitigation.

With the intention to seek funding from the GCF, UNDP is in the process of engaging countries and designing a climate change mitigation programme titled “Solar for Health Programme: Enabling the provision of sustainable low-carbon energy services to public health facilities in Sub-Saharan Africa”. The proposed programme will have three interrelated outputs: (1) Design and implementation of Performance-Based Payment (PBP) models for solar PV solutions to provide clean, affordable and reliable energy services to health facilities; (2) Strengthening policy and regulatory environment to enable off-grid energy solutions for health facilities; and (3) Establishment of a Regional Knowledge Platform on Climate Change and Health.
