The Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) invites expressions of interest from consultants to support an energy efficiency and carbon finance program for Latin America. Responses are due April 23.
The bank seeks assistance in mainstreaming energy efficiency in key economic sectors and in providing carbon finance advisory services such as development of Clean Development Mechanism projects to offset carbon dioxide emissions.
In November, the IADB launched an initiative to support regional renewable energy investments in Latin America, focusing on energy efficiency, biofuels, carbon finance, and adaptation to the risks of climate change. (HNN 12/1/06)
