Project Description

Climate technology transfer has been recognised as a key component in the global strategy to reduce GHG emissions and address the challenges of climate change. Within the EBRD region, the ETC and SEMED regions lag behind other countries at the same level of development in adoption of climate technologies.
The Finance and Technology Transfer Centre for Climate Change (FINTECC) has been established to demonstrate the viability of climate technologies in these markets through a combination of policy dialogue, technical assistance and incentive payments. The technical assistance programme under FINTECC aims at establishing the foundations and support for the climate technology transfer in ETC and SEMED with a focus on the private sector. The assignment will support legislators and investors to eliminate or overcome market barriers to climate technology transfer (CTT), and accelerate the take up of climate technologies (CT), especially in the context of the private sector.

The Project is consistent with the Bank’s Sustainable Resource Initiative (“SRI”), approved by the Board on the 16th April 2013 (BDS13-52F), aimed at promoting the sustainable use of energy, materials and water resources.

Project Objectives

Selected new methodologies and guidelines shared through networks provide policy makers and businesses with opportunities to adopt new climate resilience and mitigation initiatives.

TC Recipient Information

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.

Project Complaint Mechanism (PCM)

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 accountability mechanism.

The accountability mechanism 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 our webpage to find out how to submit a complaint through the confidential online form, by email, mail or telephone. We are available to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you may have about the submission or handling of complaints. Complainants’ identities may be kept confidential upon request.

Please note that after the appointment of the new mechanism Head in 2020, the revised Project Accountability Policy and Guidance will come into effect to guide case handling.
