Consultancy for Needs and Readiness Assessment for Implementing Article 6 in Pakistan

We are requesting for proposals from eligible firms/entities for part of the activities in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan under the “Supporting Preparedness for Article 6 Cooperation” or SPAR6C Program, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) through the International Climate Initiative (IKI).

The overall objective of SPAR6C is to facilitate readiness of countries to participate in cooperative approaches under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement by engaging the private sector and working closely with governments. This program will enable the development of the international carbon market created by Article 6, leading to cost-efficient, flexible, high integrity carbon markets with positive, transformational sustainability impacts.

The IKI-SPAR6C program aims to work closely with national government and private sector stakeholders, as well as local experts and research institutions, to improve national readiness for Article 6 participation. Local firms bidding for this proposal will report to the Ministry of Climate Change, Pakistan to avoid duplication with existing initiatives and promote stakeholder coordination working on the topic. Implementation of consortium activities under Work Package IV: Pakistan will be led by the UNEP Copenhagen Climate Center, UNEP-CCC. Local firms bidding for this proposal will work closely with UNEP-CCC and supporting partners GFA Consulting GmbH.
