The Government of Lao PDR (GOL) has participated in the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) since May 2008. The FCPF manages two different multi-donor funds (the Fund for REDD+ Readiness Preparation Support and the Carbon Fund). Lao PDR was granted a REDD+ Readiness Preparation grant of US$ 3.6 million in November 2011. The project started in August 2014, and is going to continue until 30th June 2020 with additional grant of US$ 4.5 million. The REDD+ Readiness Preparation grant mainly supports analytical work including the development of the REDD+ strategy, relevant legal and regulatory frameworks, capacity development including training and workshops, stakeholder consultations, communication campaigns, and awareness raising. Therefore, the FCPF Readiness Preparation Project is contributing to developing Lao PDR’s capacity to receive REDD+ investments in future. One such international investment for REDD+ is from the FCPF Carbon Fund.
The Department of Forestry, through FCPF Project now invites eligible individual consultants to indicate their interests in providing the services. Interested individual consultants shall submit their applications indicating that they are qualified to perform the services (curriculum vitae, description of similar assignments, experience in similar conditions, appropriate skills, etc.).
