1 Consultancy to prepare a Funding Proposal for the Project Using natural ecosystems to help communities better mitigate and adapt to Climate Change in Cambodia. for the Green Climate Fund Location : Phnom Penh, Cambodia preferred, but work can be done remotely Application Deadline : November 30, 2015 Languages Required : English Expected Duration of Assignment : Final product to be submitted by March 18, Background 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. The GCF can be accessed directly by National Implementing Entities from developing countries and/or through international and regional Implementing Entities (IE). The Board of the Green Climate Fund has started Accreditation of National and International institutions for direct access. In July 2015 the GCF Board approved the accreditation of Conservation International to implement micro, small and medium sized projects at a global level. The Funding Proposal will be developed for the project that promotes using natural ecosystems to help communities better mitigate and adapt to Climate Change in Cambodia. Cambodia has one of the highest deforestation rates in the world. Cambodia's forest cover has plummeted from over 70% in 1970 to 57% in 2010 and the country s deforestation rates continue to accelerate (FAO, 2010). According to the World Bank, climate changes observed in Cambodia between 1960 and 2003 has been significant, though the mean rainfall trends are unclear and not statistically significant. Global Climate Models cannot clearly predict changes in precipitation, but expect rainfall to be greater during the monsoon season. Cambodia is currently one of the most disaster-prone countries in the region and there are indications that this will only increase with climate change. Given that nearly 80% of the population lives in rural areas with poor infrastructure, the country s vulnerability to climate change is considered to be very high. 1

2 Economic Land Concessions have cleared 2.5 million hectares of forest in a mere five year period, leading to hundreds of millions of tons of CO 2 e emissions and further exacerbating the vulnerability of local populations by removing the natural buffer that forests provide against floods, droughts and climatic changes. Nowhere is this more evident in than in the Tonle Sap Lake, the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia and one of the most productive lakes in the world. About 30% of the water that sustains the Tonle Sap Lake in the dry season comes from the Cardamoms forests, making these forests critical to sustaining the fisheries (and related economic activities) of the lake, as well as protecting these communities from extreme weather events. The Tonle Sap provides 70% of the protein for 15.4 million people living in Cambodia (producing 300,000 tons of fish per year) and is integral to Cambodia s food security. Given the importance of the area, the Cambodian government has indicated an interest in working with communities to help conserve this expansive area, spanning from the Cardamom mountains (in the Central Cardamoms Protected Forest) down to the Tonle Sap Lake in the north, and down to the coastal zone in Koh Kong Province in the south, where the heaviest deforestation pressure is taking place. This is the focal area of the project. The project objectives are: To prevent the emission of 230 million tonnes of CO 2 e; To increase incomes with agriculture and fisheries communities by at least 25%; and, To sustain inland fisheries yields of about 600,000 metric tonnes per year by maintaining water flows. The project will directly benefit about 100,000 people anticipated to be involved in project activities, and indirectly benefit 3.5 million people that depend on this critical ecosystem, especially fishing communities. Cambodia is ranked number one in overall vulnerability according to Standard & Poor s (S&P) climate change ranking. Despite this high vulnerability, investment in joint mitigation and adaptation strategies has been minimal in Cambodia. This project aims to fully realize the mitigation and adaptation potential of natural ecosystems, which offer immediate, low cost and tested climate solutions at scale. Conservation International s Greater Mekong program focuses on linking science, policy and field project implementation to improve the well-being of some 60 million people dependent upon forest and freshwater ecosystems. The work focuses on securing critical ecosystem services for people, including carbon sequestration, freshwater flows, flood protection, fish production and biodiversity. CI-Greater Mekong has worked in close partnership with local communities and government agencies in Cambodia since CI s field presence in Cambodia started with the launch of the Central Cardamoms Protected Forest in The area is managed by CI in collaboration with the Cambodia s Forestry Administration in close partnership with the local communities. It is the largest Protected Area in Southeast Asia, and an independent review of the program in 2012 found it to have the lowest deforestation rate in the Northern Cardamom region despite the enormous and increasing pressures it faces. The Central Cardamoms Protected Forest Trust Fund, the first protected area trust fund of its kind in Cambodia was 2

3 established in 2015 and will be officially launched in early The Trust Fund will fund the management of this area in perpetuity and the activities of the proposed project will be closely aligned with the Trust Fund. Since 2008, CI has expanded its geographical focus to include work in Pursat and Battambang provinces on the Tonle Sap, Southeast Asia s largest lake and one of the world s most productive freshwater fisheries. CI has worked to improve sustainable productivity of community fisheries, biodiversity conservation in fish sanctuaries, enhance the well-being and economic resilience of the floating communities on the lake by providing access to clean water and supporting diversification of livelihoods. 2. Scope of work, Deliverables, duties and responsibilities The consultant(s) will be responsible for design and development of the full proposal document including a project/program framing the transformative change, paradigm shift and ways that the program addresses major barriers to achieve lasting impacts. Based on a theory of change, organize and harmonize paradigm shift objectives-impacts-outcomes of components into a concise summary, providing expertise in climate change mitigation and adaptation, proposal writing and packaging of the final GCF proposal document. The consultant(s) will be responsible for the preparation of a consistent final proposal document based on analytical work, studies, national strategies and stakeholder consultations that is accessible to a broad readership consistent with Green Climate Fund (GCF) requirements. In close collaboration with CI team, the consultant will have the following overall duties and responsibilities: Develop a final GCF Funding Proposal that is consistent with all GCF requirements. The funding proposal includes all sections that are listed in the GCF Funding Proposal Template available on the GCF website (http://www.gcfund.org/operations/resource-guide.html) plus any additional evidence based justifications and risk analyses that may strengthen the quality of the proposal. Ensure that the GCF Funding Proposal is in line with CI s Environmental Social Management Framework (ESMF) and the IFC Performance Standards. This includes A Gender Mainstreaming Plan for the project and other Environmental Social Management Plans as necessary based on the Environmental Social Safeguard Screening (http://www.conservation.org/publications/documents/ci-gef-environmental-and-social- Management-Framework-(ESMF).pdf) Support CI-Cambodia in structuring the theory of change, logical framework and paradigm shift potential of the program by defining the degree to which the proposed activities can catalyze impact beyond a one-off program investment, including long term financial sustainability; Ensure inclusion of the results of all essential stakeholder consultations within the project area into the design of the funding proposal.
