ICF Mexico Technical Assistance Programme

The BEIS International Climate Fund (ICF) is launching support for small-scale technical assistance activities in areas of distinct need in Mexico.

Overview

Demand-led technical assistance can support Mexico in achieving climate goals and increasing opportunities by:

  • strengthening crosscutting schemes of coordination and collaboration amongst all levels of government and non-state actors
  • developing needed interventions to overcome market barriers that accelerate mobilisation of private capital at scale to finance Mexico’s NDC targets
  • building institutional and technical capacities for innovative and effective policy delivery and enforcement in key areas at the national, subnational and municipal levels

Activities of Mexico’s Technical Assistance Programme aim to support the following objectives:

  • contribute to the reduction of the country’s emissions by improving the capacity and capability of key institutions (national, sub-national and non-state)
  • support demand-led technical assistance that prioritises implementation and helps raise climate ambition, by addressing barriers, constraints and areas of opportunity at different levels of government based on the country’s political and economic context and sectorial priorities

What the fund will achieve

This call for proposals request implementation partners to submit concept bids for the following project types:

  • year 1 projects. Year 1 projects should aim to deliver activities between November 2018 and November 2019
  • skill share projects. Skill share projects should aim to facilitate skill-sharing between Mexican, UK or international experts (public and private) to share technical knowledge and embed good practice in an identified policy area of specific need. Skill-sharing could range from short-term deployments, thematic conferences, and long-term secondments depending on need
  • early transition activity projects. Early transition activity projects will be delivered between October 2018 and March 2019 and shall aim to support the new administration’s transition period
