Feasibility Study to recommend institutional mechanisms for cooperation and knowledge exchange among Government designated Climate Change institutions at national and state levels

1. Background

Climate change is one of the most formidable development challenges faced by the world, which have elevated cascading effects on our future generations. The impacts of climate change are more pronounced for the developing countries, having limited finance to mitigate climate change and capacities to adapt to existing challenges. Thus, India is confronted with the challenge of sustaining rapid economic growth amidst the increasing threats of climate change. To address these challenges, India has developed its planning framework with the announcement of the Action Plans on Climate Change at national and sub-national levels in 2008 and 2010 respectively.

2. Objective

The project “Supporting the Institutionalisation of Capacities on Climate Change Studies and Actions” (ICCC), implemented by the Union Ministry of Environment Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC) and GIZ, aims to develop and institutionalise capacities in the areas of climate protection, resilience and NDC implementation as well as transdisciplinary issues. These activities are proposed to be fulfilled through strengthening networking amongst key institutions and institutionalise cooperation.

3. Scope of the assignment:

In order to promote dialogue and exchange of knowledge and experiences among relevant stakeholder it is proposed to implement coordinated actions on climate change at national and state level. Currently, there is no institutional mechanism to coordinate the work and exchange learnings of these three types of institutions implementing climate change actions. Neither the MoEFCC Nodal Agencies nor the DST Knowledge Centres nor the Centres of Excellence have an institutional structure to coordinate and exchange knowledge among fellow institutions on other states. Further, there is no structure. available to streamline and coordinate the work of all three types of institutions.

4. Tasks

Task I: Mapping of nodal agencies, knowledge centres and centres of excellence

Task II: Analysing structures and functional modalities of respective institutions to identify capacity gaps to compile, analyse and share knowledge on topics mentioned in the Scope Section

Task III: Design feasible options for institutional mechanisms to facilitate dialogue, networking and effective exchange of knowledge and experiences for a) Nodal Agencies, b) Climate Change Knowledge Centres, c) Centres of Excellence and d) all three types of institutions.
