GGGI - Global Green Growth Institute



The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) is a treaty-based international, inter-governmental organization dedicated to supporting and promoting strong, inclusive and sustainable economic growth in developing countries and emerging economies. To learn more please visit about GGGI web page. 

GGGI is collaborating with the Government of Paraguay (GoP) to assist with readiness activities for the country to access climate finance from the Green Climate Fund (GCF). Paraguay has set climate change and sustainable development objectives, and the GoP aims to increase its access to climate finance, notably the Green Climate Fund (GCF), by building a pipeline of bankable projects, improving women’s access to climate finance frameworks and increasing the participation of the private sector in green project development.

The readiness also supports the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development (MADES) through its Directorate of Strategic Planning to improve Paraguay’s ability to enhance its climate change project monitoring and tracking capabilities; MADES plans to report to the UNFCCC and GCF. This will be achieved by aligning the MRV system with IT requirements, including financial forecasting, document management, restructuring the monitoring component, and creating a portfolio overview that complies with GCF concepts. To accomplish this, MADES will hire a software developer to review the existing Monitoring, Report, and Verification system, MRV, identify corrective actions, and make it operational on MADES’s Environmental Information System (SIAM). The alignment with Green Climate Fund’s funding windows and other relevant donors will also be ensured.



The objective of the consultancy is to assist the software developer in reviewing and identifying all projects financed by GCF and other donors with mitigation and adaptation objectives from 2017 onwards. The consultant will work closely with the National Strategic Planning Directorate, National Climate Change Directorate, and other relevant directorates to gather information for the MRV System. The information gathered will be used to feed the MRV during the testing period to allow for adjustments if needed.



The Climate Actions Initiative Portfolio Assistant will work under the supervision of the Paraguay Project Manager and the Director of LAC Regional Office and will also coordinate closely with the Regional Office team members. S/he will become familiar with diverse project impact indicators and reporting requirements, as well as GGGI’s Corporate Results Framework.
