Project Description

The EBRD has been supporting the Government of Ukraine in updating its revised National Determined Contribution (“NDC”), which, adopted in July 2021, has committed the country to an overall economy-wide GHGe reduction target of 65% by 2030. In order to catalyse and maintain political momentum for NDC implementation, the Bank, the German International Climate Initiative (“IKI”) and the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources of Ukraine (“Ministry” or “MEPR”) have agreed to cooperate on a TC programme (“the Programme”) that aims to accelerate Ukraine’s NDC implementation while promoting the uptake of investments in sustainable bioenergy, agri and land-use practices.

The Project contributes to Ukraine’s low carbon transition by helping to achieve NDC targets, mobilising domestic and international climate finance and unlocking the country’s bio-energy potential through a combination of capacity, policy and investment support. At the same time, the Project will strengthen the enabling environment to incentivise the uptake of investments in sustainable bioenergy, soil productivity and sustainable land management practices. To this end, the Strategy targets to increase the proportion of electricity generated from local sources from 15% in 2019 to 48.5% in 2030, and increase renewable energy’s share of the entire energy mix from 11 per cent in 2020 to 14 per cent by 2030. While the Strategy considers the evolution of the energy sector out to 2050, it does not include quantitative projections or targets in this respect.

The objective of this assignment is to develop a climate finance strategy for Ukraine’s NDC implementation that strengthens the capacity, knowledge and plans of the MEPR and other relevant Ministries to implement the climate priority actions for 2030.

The assignment will take stock of progress, propose ways for improving Ukraine’s approach to climate finance and climate-related fiscal budget earmarking and tracking, and will include recommendations on how to optimize the use of possible financing instruments, delivery channels and policies for an effective NDC financial architecture. The Consultant will take into account existing studies, reports, procedures and regulations and shall closely liaise with other ongoing or planned donor initiatives to avoid overlaps and ensure complementarity. In addition, the Consultant(s) will closely coordinate with EBRD’s Reform Delivery office based in Kyiv. The key tasks to be completed are (i) Information Mapping and Framing; (ii) Climate Finance Supply and Demand Outlook Prognosis; (iii) Assessment of key barriers, gaps and opportunities; (v) Development of a Climate Finance Strategy for Ukraine; and (v) Dissemination of results and knowledge transfer.

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 more about IPAM and its mandate; how to submit a Request for review; or contact IPAM  via email ipam@ebrd.com to get guidance and more information on IPAM and how to submit a request.
