German Technical Cooperation



GIZ, on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), has been partnering with Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change (MoEFCC) in implementing Indo-German Technical Cooperation projects on climate change. In this context a follow up initiative “Climate Change Adaptation and Finance in Rural Areas of India” as an integral part of the BMZ programme “Climate and Environment in Rural India” was initiated in January 2020 in partnership with MoEFCC. The overall aim of this project is to support partners in reducing climate change risks for vulnerable groups and sectors as well as capacity building of actors (different levels) in the planning, implementation and financing of climate adaptation initiatives at the State level. The Paris Agreement came into being in 2015, which committed to containing the global temperatures between 1.5 to 2 C. As part of this agreement, India, along with other countries, has submitted its commitment for post 2020 action through the NDC (Nationally Determined Contributions). Therefore, climate actions identified under SAPCCs need to be synergized with India NDCs; In addition, SAPCCs need to be strengthened with latest scientific assessments and projections that are available along with prioritized climate action. Subsequently, it is crucial to identify capacity needs for adaptation planning, implementation and M&E towards achieving the targets effectively. Considering this need MoEFCC has advised all states to revise their SAPCC to keep up with the latest commitments at national (NDCs and NAPCC) and international level (such as Paris Agreement, Sustainable Development Goals and Sendai Framework) and government priorities (SDG 2030 Vision document) .In this context, it is proposed to conduct review and revision of SAPCC , Uttar Pradesh with the following overarching objectives:

  • To update district level vulnerability and climate profile as per IPCC AR5 methodological guidance.
  • To take stock of the implementation of the SAPCC version 1.
  • To re-examine various actions (adaptations, mitigation) in the light of NDC goals.
  • Prepare new short-range (2023) and long-range plans up to 2030.

In this context, the selected agency is expected to carry out following tasks within 3 Work packages as mentioned in the TOR:

Task 1: Design SAPCC template and criteria for review, Task 2: Updating vulnerability and climate profile of UP (district level) as per IPCC AR5 methodological guidance. Task 3: Review and revision of SAPCC
