Title - RFP Invited for Action Plan for Strengthening Capacities of the Nodal Institutions to implement climate informed MGNREGS programme in the States of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Uttar Pradesh
Context of the Requirement
UNDP and DFID have entered into a partnership to implement the Infrastructure for Climate Resilient Growth (ICRG) – Extended Phase, to be implemented in three States Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan. The ICRG project is primarily aimed at integrating climate concerns into the MGNREGS activities – piloting them at grass root level and building capacity of various stakeholders in the planning/ implementing value chain.
The current phase of ICRG (January 2016 - February 2020), implemented across three (3) States – Bihar, Odisha and Chhattisgarh, has had a number of successes in terms of developing tools and capacities to strengthen the quality and productivity of infrastructure built under Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) for resilient livelihoods through ground water recharge, micro-irrigation, soil and water conservation and plantations.
The ICRG Extended phase of three years (March 2020 – Feb 2023) aims to expand the project in other States for building climate resilience of poor communities living in rural areas – through strengthening and deepening the integration of climate risk information into decision planning tools and process across development programmes in these States.
Brief Description of the Required Services
The ICRG project mandate is that of including climate concerns in MGNREGS implementation. The overall objective of the assignment is to assess institutional, technical and functional capacity gaps and training needs of the nodal institutions (and other key stakeholders as identified during initial State level consultations) for effective planning, implementation and monitoring of a ‘climate resilient’ MGNREGS programme in the four target States of the ICRG Extended Phase: Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan.
