FEASIBILITY ASSESSMENT OF A Community Climate Change Adaptation Fund (CCCAF) MECHANISM FOR GRENADA

The Programme on Integrated Climate Change Adaptation Strategies (ICCAS) is being co-implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the German Development Cooperation (GIZ) through the Environment Division of the Ministry of Education, Human Resource Development and the Environment (MOEHRE) in Grenada. Funding for this project is provided by the German Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), International Climate Initiative (IKI).

Under the UNDP-supported components of ICCAS a Community Climate Change Adaptation Fund (CCCAF) has been operationalized in order to strengthen adaptive capacities through community-based initiatives; and share knowledge and experiences from the Programme to improve understanding and awareness of Climate Change risks and adaptation measures. The community-based adaptation initiatives are being implemented through a small-grants mechanism oriented to projects principally related to agriculture and land use, fisheries and marine resources, coastal protection and water resources management. Currently, 27 community projects are being implemented by the fund throughout Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. The aim of the fund is to finance projects and programmes to help communities adapt to the negative effects of extreme weather and climate change through implementation of concrete community-based adaptation activities and incentives. The implementation of the CCCAF is scheduled to be completed by end of 2017

Objective of the Consultancy

The consultant is required to produce a feasibility study that serves as a knowledge base for a concept regarding the institutionalization of the Community Climate Change Adaptation Fund (CCCAF) in the longer term. The level of effort will require a total of 45 consultant days, which is negotiable.

Scope of Works

The overall goal of the consultancy is to explore the feasibility of the institutionalization of the CCCAF in Grenada, and to recommend a follow-up strategy for implementation, including recommendations regarding design options (e.g . possible management agencies, financial structure, entities that could receive proceeds, conservation strategies for programming of fund proceeds, monitoring and quality assurance mechanisms, etc.).
