Call for Proposals – Access to finance for Ecookim agroforestry producers in the Ivory Coast

IDH invites eligible consultants / service providers to submit a proposal for the assignment ‘Access to finance for Ecookim agroforestry producers’ in Côte d’Ivoire.

The LDN Technical Assistance Facility (TAF) seeks to support Ecookim on its way to investment readiness. The selected party will perform a scoping study with the general objective of designing an investment scheme that enables Ecookim to support cooperative farmers’ investment in responsible land use to tackle climate change and land degradation.

Investments in Land restoration and Sustainable Land Management (SLM) practices are needed to avoid, reduce and reverse land degradation. However, project preparedness can be a major bottleneck for restoration and SLM investment. The LDN TAF was established to help alleviate this bottleneck, and link projects to the LDN Fund and LDN impacts.

The LDN TAF can provide grants and reimbursable grants to (potential) LDN investment projects, to improve technical quality, and strengthen environmental and social impacts, so that the investment project meets the LDN Fund investment criteria.
