IUCN has launched a call for proposals for the preparation of the GEF-funded ‘The Restoration Initiative (TRI)’ child project in Myanmar. Approved by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Council in July 2016, the project will be implemented by GEF Partner Agency, IUCN.
The overall TRI Programme goal is to contribute to the restoration and maintenance of critical landscapes to provide global environmental benefits and enhanced resilient economic development and livelihoods, in support of the Bonn Challenge.
IUCN will be awarding a contract to lead the Project Preparation process resulting in the production and approval of a GEF Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Endorsement Request and a full IUCN Project Document for the TRI Myanmar child project. The Consultancy Team will be required to work according to the detailed requirements specified in the Request for Proposals.
Any queries and questions regarding the content or process for the requests for proposals should be directed to the IUCN Contact (Angela Joehl Cadena). The deadline for submission of proposals is Tuesday 27 September 2016 at 17:00 ICT (Indochina Time). Proposers are required to submit their proposals to Angela Joehl Cadena.

The Global Environment Facility (GEF) was established on the eve of the 1992 Rio Earth Summit, to help tackle pressing environmental problems. Since then, the GEF has provided $14.5 billion in grants and mobilized $75.4 billion in additional financing for almost 4,000 projects. The GEF has become an international partnership of 183 countries, international institutions, civil society organizations, and private sector to address global environmental issues.
