IDOM and Climate Change Atelier have recently being awarded to support Honduras NDC Partnership Plan by defining implementation pathway for NDC prioritized measures.
NDCs are the primary means for governments to communicate internationally, the steps they will take to address climate change in their own countries, how they will adapt to climate change impacts, and the support they require to adopt low-carbon pathways and to build climate resilience.
As part of the work to advance NDC implementation, the Government of Honduras (GoH) has established an NDC Partnership Plan, developed in 2017 through a process led jointly by the Presidential Office for Climate Change (Clima+) and the Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources (MiAmbiente).
To support the country’s NDC Partnership Plan, the World Bank is currently implementing the Technical Assistance “Supporting Honduras NDC Partnership Plan: defining implementation pathways for NDC prioritized measures”. This support aims to fill technical and financial gaps in the implementation of the Partnership Plan, including supporting coordination needs identified by the GoH. Specifically, this consultancy will support implementation of activities under objective 3 of the Partnership Plan (Developing roadmaps for prioritized actions and signing memoranda of understanding with key partners) by defining implementation pathways for the prioritized mitigation measures in priority sectors (LULUCF, Energy, and Agriculture).
The general objectives of this work consist on support the GoH in the implementation of the mitigation component of the NDC, as well as advance implementation of the NDC Partnership Plan. Specifically, the consultancy aims to:
- Identify barriers and opportunities for the implementation of the NDC prioritized mitigation policies and measures in the LULUCF, Energy and Agriculture sectors;
- Develop implementation pathways for the prioritized policies and measures in the selected sectors that promote adaptation-mitigation synergies and provide recommendations to include gender aspects;
- Build capacity on mitigation planning and implementation.
The consultancy will be done in close coordination and cooperation with the Government of Honduras and World Bank staff.
