Objective: The Pilot Auction Facility (PAF) for Methane and Climate Change Mitigation seeks an evaluation team to conduct an independent review of the PAF’s performance covering the period from September 2014 to December 2017. The PAF is a World Bank trust fund that provides price guarantees in the form of put options, which provide holders the right but not the obligation to sell future emission reductions at a pre-determined price. The objectives of the Independent Formative Evaluation will be to assess PAF’s performance, strengths, and weaknesses and identify emerging lessons learned, including forward looking recommendations for future climate financing mechanisms.The evaluation team is expected to collect and analyze the necessary data (including against PAF’s logical framework) for evaluation’s purpose, answer proposed evaluation questions and compile lessons learned.
Many of today’s increasingly complex development challenges, from rapid urban expansion to climate change, disaster resilience, and social inclusion, are intimately tied to land and the way it is used. Addressing these challenges while also ensuring individuals and communities are able to make full use of their land depends on consistent, reliable, and accessible identification of land rights.
Climate change poses an enormous challenge to development. By 2050, the world will have to feed 9 billion people, extend housing and services to 2 billion new urban residents, and provide universal access to affordable energy, and do so while bringing down global greenhouse gas emissions to a level that make a sustainable future possible. At the same time, floods, droughts, sea-level rise, threats to water and food security and the frequency of natural disasters will intensify, threatening to push 100 million more people into poverty in the next 15 years alone.

Interested firm/consortium should have experience and expertise in climate change mitigation, particularly in the energy and urban sectors. The firm/consortium is required to demonstrate (i) proven international experience (with concrete examples) in assessment and development of mitigation options, scenarios, modelling techniques, baselines and emission factors development, required for the energy sector and desirable for the urban sector; (ii) technical experience and expertise in energy and urban sectors; (iii) local presence in Middle-East region, preferably in Jordan with management staff and local technical experts with Arabic language skills; (iv) experience working with government agencies and multi-lateral and international institutions.
