Climate resilient infrastructure development facility, Phase II (CRIDF-2)


The Climate Resilient Infrastructure Development Facility (CRIDF), Phase I, was mandated to design, mobilize finance for, and build climate resilient, pro-poor and transboundary water projects. COWI supported the planning, design and capacity development across the SADC Region to support stronger regional cooperation within the 13 transboundary river basins and its population of about 95 million people. Water insecurity across these basins is high – with frequent droughts interspersed by flooding. Reliable access to water for drinking, sanitation, agriculture and industry is already limited, constraining human development and economic growth. Given projected scenarios for greater water demand (resulting from population growth and economic development) and more variable water supply (due to the impacts of climate change) riparian states are required to strengthen their cooperation over shared rivers to protect and achieve development gains. Within this context, CRIDF1 delivered, and CRIDF2 will continue to deliver, climate resilient water infrastructure interventions that include: › Water Infrastructure Projects Identification and development of infrastructure projects through the entire cycle from scoping, feasibility and detailed design, procurement through to implementation. CRIDF supports the in-country procurement, financing and supervi-sion systems for infrastructure projects that, once completed, would be owned and managed by national and local authorities, water/energy utilities and beneficiary associations. The projects are used as platforms to further engage stakeholders, introducing climate resilience and transboundary concepts into national and regional policies. Subse-quently the lessons and evidence from the projects are disseminated through stakeholder networks in an effort to replicate success, and mainstream climate resilience and pro-poor considerations into water management practices. Where feasible power supply is provided through renewable energy installations, such as solar; › Infrastructure financing arrangements In addition to funding CAPEX for projects from its own budgets, CRIDF mobilizes infrastructure finance interventions to complement the infrastructure preparation work. This work focuses on investigating and securing innovative finance arrangements and funding partners for the implementation of the infrastructure projects that CRIDF will have pre-pared. By doing so, CRIDF seeks to leverage the maximum available support to catalyse transformation in joint plan-ning and implementation of climate resilient infrastructure. › Technical assistance to stakeholders CRIDF provides extensive technical assistance to the relevant stakeholders, ranging from long-term advice to key insti-tutions, to a rapid advisory service to respond to ad hoc requests. Such technical assistance aims at influencing the comprehensive planning and management of water infrastructure projects in the shared river basin context; › Building cooperation The overarching objective of CRIDF’s strategic interventions is that projects should be transformational in terms of their impact on building climate resilience for the poor in southern Africa. CRIDF actively promote changing the ena-bling environment in which CRIDF and other climate resilient infrastructure projects are designed, managed, imple-mented and operated, with a key aim to build cooperation through regional climate resilient economic growth, thereby shifting the way decision makers think, plan, operate and maintain water infrastructure. › Strategic Communications CRIDF has a comprehensive communication strategy that aims at stakeholders are informed about the background and the results of CRIDF using different communication avenues. CRIDF has produced a broad range of communications materials to share their work to bring transformational change to Southern Africa through improved transboundary water resources management from written briefs, brochures, case studies video documentaries. CRIDF combines different types of written materials, website news stories, resource centre for downloads and communication cam-paigns for effective dissemination. › Monitoring and Learning Framework The CRIDF has a functioning monitoring and learning framework that serves a dual purpose; i) to provide sufficient accurate data to programme management for decision making purposes (programme monitoring) and ii) to monitor and scrutinise programme process and implementation to provide. The CRIDF monitoring and learning approach is based on the OECD DAC criteria of Relevance, Effectiveness, Efficiency, Impact and Sustainability. In addition, given the regional and facilitative nature of CRIDF the approach take into considerations the OECD DAC

The Africa Clean Energy Technical Assistance Facility (ACE TAF)

Coffey International Development Limited, a Tetra Tech Company

The Africa Clean Energy (ACE) Technical Assistance Facility (TAF) programme is a 4-year programme funded by the UK Government Department for International Development (DFID). The objective of the programme is to catalyse a market-based approach for private sector delivery of renewable energy electrification technologies, with a specific focus on high quality stand-alone solar systems. The ACE TAF is part of the broader ACE Business programme, consisting of the Africa Enterprise Challenge Fund (AECF) Renewable Energy and Adaptation to Climate Change Technologies Household Solar (REACT HS) funding windows and the quality standard workstream implemented by IFC Lighting Africa in five countries. This will lead to improved access to modern energy services for people and communities in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), with an emphasis on affordable access for poor people and marginalised groups. ACE Business consists of two components, implemented by different development partners, but designed to cooperate and collaborate closely. The two components are complemented by SHS quality standards work implemented by Lighting Africa in five of the 14 ACE countries. Component 1: ACE Technical Assistance Facility (TAF): This component is implemented by Coffey International Development. The objective of ACE TAF is to improve the enabling environment for private sector delivery of access to energy through stand-alone solar systems. The programme will be implemented through three pillars: 1. Enabling Environment: Assisting governments to put in place appropriate policies and regulations, supporting market development and improving quality standards to catalyse private sector delivery of stand-alone solar systems. 2. Knowledge Management: Generating and disseminating knowledge and evidence on the success factors for, and benefits of, private sector delivery of off-grid solar energy, including the application of learning. 3. Coordination: Promoting Collaboration between ACE Business Programme components, in particular with AECF Ltd and IFC’s Lighting Africa programme, and other relevant initiatives and programmes and encouraging other donors to contribute towards ACE objectives and activities. This includes managing the overall approach to Monitoring and Evaluation for all components of the ACE Business programme.

Annual Contribution to the Global Biodiversity Information Facility

Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs

This activity supports the UK annual contribution to GBIF which is an international agreement to create and manage an open data infrastructure, allowing access to data about all types of life on Earth, and helping to meet commitments to promote data access under the CBD, and enabling analyses to support decision making and policy implementation at a range of geographic scales. GBIF makes available the tools, codes and data to establish national portals of the database, providing a strong capacity building element in helping developing countries to manage, mobilise, access and share their biodiversity data; and providing training.
