FOR

MAINSTREAMING CLIMATE RESILIENT INFRASTRUCTURE

1. Background

Climate change is recognised as a key global and national challenge by the Government of India - as evident in the National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC) the subsidiary State Action Plans on Climate Change (SAPCC), as well as Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). With the submission of the NDCs to the United National Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 2015, there is an increased need to develop the necessary capacities to implement these commitments. The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC) plays a key role in the NDC implementation process; and therefore, requires strengthened capacities to process relevant expert knowledge, formulate effective policy, put it into practice and monitor results. At the same time, the exchange of Indian research on climate change impacts and action needs to be enhanced.

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

To assist in network building and knowledge exchange and thus strengthen capacities for enhanced science-policy-practice interaction of the MoEFCC, GIZ is conducting joint studies together with the International partner of the project – the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) is of utmost importance. GIZ together with PIK has identified various areas which are key in realizing India’s NDCs and improving resilience. One of which is Mainstreaming Climate Resilient Infrastructure. with this, GIZ invites proposals for the assignment on “Mainstreaming Climate Resilient Infrastructure”. Considering this crucial role road infrastructure plays in ensuring service delivery and economic growth, it is important to climate-proof the Indian road infrastructure.
