1.NDC Partnership Embedded Advisor to develop the Climate Finance Resource Mobilization Strategy (CFRMS) for Seychelles

Seychelles submitted its updated Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) on July 30th, 2021. The NDC emphasizes the importance of financial support for successful implementation. Seychelles is vulnerable to climate change impacts, particularly sea level rise and increased storm severity, which create coastal hazards and increase vulnerability. Key socio-economic sectors are sensitive to climate change, including natural habitats, biodiversity, coastal zones, human settlements, agriculture, water resources, fisheries, and human health.

The government prioritizes the fight against climate change, aiming to lower GHG emissions to 817 ktCO2eq by 2030 and improve energy and water security. Seychelles requires approximately USD 670 million to implement its NDC, requiring significant support from domestic and international partners. The Ministry of Finance National Planning and Trade seeks technical support for the development of a Climate Finance Resource Mobilization Strategy and action plan for Seychelles' NDC implementation.

In order to complete the project, it will be necessary to review the Climate Investment Planning and Mobilisation Framework (CIPMF), which was created by the Green Climate Fund and the NDC Partnership. It will also be necessary to identify areas of overlap in the investment plans that already exist, prioritise evidence-based investment needs, draft a Climate Finance Resource Mobilisation Strategy, analyse financing opportunities, interact with stakeholders, pinpoint potential roadblocks, establish a comprehensive finance plan, and create a pipeline of project concepts in important investment areas.
