Request for Expression of Interest for Consulting Services for Nordic Partnership Initiative Pilot Programme for supporting up-scaled climate change mitigation action in Vietnam’s cement sector

The Government of Vietnam has received a grant from the Nordic Development Fund (NDF) for the implementation of the Nordic Partnership Initiative Pilot Programme and intends to apply the proceeds of this grant to payments under a contract for Consulting Services for the Pilot Programme for supporting up-scaled climate change mitigation action in Vietnam’s cement sector. The project aims at improving Vietnam’s readiness to benefit from international climate financing by supporting scaling up mitigation actions in the cement sector.

The project will explore and address gaps in data availability and quality regarding sectoral GHG emissions, technical and institutional capacity as well as potential barriers to implementing scaling up greenhouse gas mitigation actions in the cement sector in Vietnam. Special emphasis will be given to exploring opportunities to utilise new forms of international climate finance, including possible new market-based mechanisms in Vietnam’s cement and constructions sector, implying a results-based approach for provision of future support. Attention will also be paid to involving the relevant stakeholders and mapping out the cement sector's viewpoint on the functioning of the overall framework.
