The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the EBRD or the Bank) is actively promoting FINTECC (Finance and Technology Transfer Centre for Climate Change) programme, which is part of the global drive towards climate technology transfer for developing countries and countries in transition. The FINTECC programme is created to promote climate technology transfer into Bank’s countries of operation markets, developing specific measures to enable local environment for technology transfer, addressing policy, institutional, financial, and technical barriers, and to increase capacity of businesses to innovate in all areas of climate technologies’ development and deployment. One of the components of FINTECC is Climate Innovation Vouchers (“CIV”). An Innovation Voucher is a voucher provided to a business, to partially pay for an external expertize to facilitate the local private business in innovations to develop/expand their manufacture of climate technologies/products (“cleantech”). Innovation Voucher scheme aims to support companies and to facilitate innovations in development of cleantech.
The EBRD is willing to continue deploy CIV scheme in Ukraine, expand it to Belarus and evaluate possibilities of implementation scheme in Georgia.
EBRD intends to select and contract a Program Manager to support climate innovations in Ukraine and Belarus, through i) assistance to participants of CIV Program in addressing institutional and technical barriers and ii) deployment of the second phase of the Innovation Voucher scheme to address financial barrier.
Any competitive selections for business opportunities relating to this project will be published on the EBRD's website: Consultancy Procurement Opportunities.

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 more about IPAM and its mandate; how to submit a Request for review; or contact IPAM via email firstname.lastname@example.org to get guidance and more information on IPAM and how to submit a request.
