The World Bank Carbon Finance Unit seeks expressions of interest from consultants to provide validation and verification services for carbon emissions reduction projects under the United Nations’ Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). Responses are due August 12.
The World Bank issued the solicitation under the auspices of its Allain Duhangan Hydroelectric Project funding program. In June, India’s 192-MW Allain Duhangan hydroelectric project became the largest hydro development to date to receive approval to sell carbon emissions credits under the CDM program. (HNN 6/25/07)
The Carbon Finance Unit invited U.N. designated and accredited entities that want to provide services for CDM and Joint Implementation (JI) projects to submit expressions of interest. CDM projects are sited in developing countries, while JI projects are carbon reduction efforts in developed countries.
The bank plans to select a number of such applicants to serve its future carbon finance business needs in all regions and all sectors. It said it would enter into indefinite service delivery contracts for a number of years with such entities.
The bank said interested consultants should refer to the Internet site of the United Nations Framework Convention for Climate Change, http://unfccc.int/2860.php, to ensure their eligibility.
Expressions of interest are to be submitted, in English, by August 12 on the Internet at www.worldbank.org/econsult.
