Request for Proposals  
Achieving Green Growth Through Terrestrial Natural Capital Restoration in Ethiopia, Rwanda & Kyrgyztan 

The GGKP and GIZ’s Economics of Land Degradation (ELD) Initiative are requesting proposals for partners in EthiopiaRwanda and Kyrgyzstan to engage local stakeholders, support data collection and apply a new methodology to restore terrestrial natural capital to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The deadline to respond is 31 May 2019. Click here for details.  
Scope of the request 
The GGKP and GIZ’s Economics for Land Degradation (ELD) Initiative launch this request to identify partners in Ethiopia, Rwanda and Kyrgyzstan to apply a joint methodology to restore terrestrial natural capital to achieve national SDG targets.  With guidance and supervision from the ELD Secretariat, GGKP Secretariat and GGKP Natural Capital Expert Working Group, project partners will be specifically responsible for engaging stakeholders, collecting local data and preparing a national assessment. Proposals are invited which focus on establishing the link between flows and benefits from land assets as well as co-benefits such as poverty reduction and/or employment creation. The assessment will be based on scenarios, which indicate changes in the terrestrial natural capital and respective ecosystem services flows comparing the impacts of business as usual and restoration interventions. Attention should be given to downstream sectors and the wider national economy. There is a preference for submissions focusing on the following countries: Ethiopia, Rwanda and Kyrgyzstan. Other case studies with a clearly defined opportunity to address ongoing national and local policy processes will also be considered. 
Who can apply
The call for proposals is open to all institutions involved in work related to land degradation economics and/or sustainable land management in the national context. More information around selection criteria, evaluation procedure, and intended outcomes of the request is available on the GGKP website: ggkp.org/news/request-proposals-achieving-green-growth-through-terrestrial-natural-capital-restoration
