The EBRD intends to launch a “Sustainable Bioenergy Value Chain Innovation” Programme in Ukraine to develop sustainable bioenergy value chains leading to significant greenhouse gas emissions reductions. Improved agri-waste value chains are expected to (1) promote investments in innovative bioenergy technologies and practices associated with the use of agricultural residues and waste and (2) support Ukraine in meeting its target to increase the renewable share of total power production in the country.
To implement the Programme the EBRD will require consultancy support for two components:
Component 1: Support legislative, regulatory framework for bioenergy value chains (estimate: USD 500,000). The Policy Dialogue Consultant will focus on providing support to the Government of Ukraine by:
- Developing an action plan for bioenergy capacity to reach targets set in the National Energy Strategy of Ukraine.
- Developing incentives for bioenergy technology transfer and bioenergy value chain development.
- Developing biomass certification schemes to enable biomass exchange operation.
Component 2: Programme Manager (consultancy position) to be based in Kiev RO for four years (estimate: USD 220,000) to:
- Support the implementation of Sustainable Bioenergy Value Chain Innovations Program in Ukraine;
- Support policy dialogue with local authorities to improve the investment climate and strengthen the EBRD impact in the area of bioenergy value chain;
- Support development and implementation of the knowledge management and capacity building activities to strengthen the capacity of the local market to absorb and expand implementation of bioenergy value chain innovations;
- Coordinate Donor visibility activity, including marketing plans, publications, Donors visibility events, etc;
- Contribute to reporting to Donors, including preparation and presentation of required reports to Donors.
Any competitive selections for business opportunities relating to this project will be published on the EBRD's website: Consultancy Procurement Opportunities.

Access to Information Policy (AIP)
The AIP sets out how the EBRD discloses information and consults with its stakeholders so as to promote better awareness and understanding of its strategies, policies and operations following its entry into force on 1 January 2020.

Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM)
If efforts to address environmental, social or public disclosure concerns with the Client or the Bank are unsuccessful (e.g. through the Client’s Project-level grievance mechanism or through direct engagement with Bank management), individuals and organisations may seek to address their concerns through the EBRD’s Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM).
IPAM independently reviews Project issues that are believed to have caused (or to be likely to cause) harm. The purpose of the Mechanism is: to support dialogue between Project stakeholders to resolve environmental, social and public disclosure issues; to determine whether the Bank has complied with its Environmental and Social Policy or Project-specific provisions of its Access to Information Policy; and where applicable, to address any existing non-compliance with these policies, while preventing future non-compliance by the Bank.
Please visit the Independent Project Accountability Mechanism webpage to find out how to submit a Request for review through our confidential online form, by email, mail or telephone. IPAM is available to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you may have about the submission or handling of Requests, which follow the Project Accountability Policy and Guidance. Requestors’ identities may be kept confidential, upon request.
