Project Description

The European Bank for Reconstruction & Development (“EBRD” or “the Bank”) is supporting the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources (“MoPMR” or the “Ministry”) in its energy transition and decarbonisation journey. MoPMR oversees the oil and gas sector activities across the value chain including oil and gas exploration, production, processing, storage and distribution, refining and petrochemicals.

There is increasing awareness of the implications of climate change, from the perspective of low-carbon transition and physical climate impacts for MoPMR, and for the need to internalise information about climate change impacts in financial and business decision-making. 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 Bank intends to engage a consultant to support MoPMR with the development of a low carbon strategy for the oil and gas sector in Egypt. The strategy should be aligned with the objectives of the Paris Agreement: reach peaking of greenhouse gas emissions as soon as possible and achieve carbon neutrality by mid-century.

The low carbon strategy will be supported by an action plan in order to achieve the objectives. This action plan will have different dimensions, including policy and financing, and will use the information from the CCG assessment and LCP to define concrete measures.

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. Please visit the Access to Information Policy page to find out what information is available from the EBRD website.

Specific requests for information can be made using the EBRD Enquiries form

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.
