Promotion of Direct Investments in Priority Climate Technology Projects

Country: Fiji

Project period: 06/2015 - 09/2015

Client: ADB Asian Development Bank

Investment amount: USD 50,000 (consulting)

Description:

ADB, with possible co-financing by EIB, Green Climate Fund (GCF) and Government of Fiji, was preparing a loan which foresaw major investments in the water and wastewater infrastructure of Greater Suva Area (total loan amount 230 M USD).

The main objectives of the individual assignment was to inform the technology selection of the project proponents towards increased resilience in light of climate change and greenhouse gas emission mitigation as well as to prepare a study on the feasibility of different packages of water and wastewater technologies for deployment in the investment project. In addition the identification of climate change adaptation and mitigation measures to be included in the proposed investment programme and the estimation of related additional or incremental costs was an important aspect of the assignment. Further, the technical part of a funding proposal to the GCF for financing identified adaptation and mitigation measures was prepared.
