Evaluation of the Swedish Climate Change Initiative 2009 – 2012

EBA hereby invite proposals to evaluate the Climate Change Initiative. In 2009, the Swedish Government launched the Climate Change Initiative (CCI), a four-year programme of investments in climate change adaptation and mitigation measures, targeting some of the poorest countries in the world. As part of a broader government initiative on climate and energy, totaling about SEK 7 billion, the CCI amounted to SEK 4 billion of ODA. Around two thirds were allocated through multilateral organisations (via the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, MFA) and one third was allocated to bilateral and regional efforts (via Sida). The goal of the CCI was to provide effective support to long-term interventions on climate change adaptation and mitigation measures to reduce the level of greenhouse gas emissions in the poorest countries. No regular ex-post evaluation of the initiative has been done. Given the ambition, length and size of the initiative as well as the Government’s continued focus on international climate aid, the EBA believes that it is timely, relevant and highly justified to evaluate the CCI in a long-term perspective. That is why the EBA have decided to commission an evaluation of the CCI. The aim is to gain in-depth understanding of the long-term effects and sustainability of the CCI and to generate lessons to inform Swedish climate aid ahead. Please see link for more information about the call https://www.kommersannons.se/elite/Notice/NoticeDispatch.aspx?NoticeId=36349. Deadline for proposals is 10th of May, 2018.
