GIZ, on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), partnered with Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change (MoEFCC) in implementing Indo-German Technical Cooperation projects on Climate Change through Climate Adaptation and Finance in Rural India (CAFRI) project. The Directorate of Environment (DoE), Government of Uttar Pradesh initiated various activities with technical support of GIZ under the CAFRI project to achieve the targets defined in the State Action Plan on Climate Change. This included the establishment of a “State Knowledge Centre on Climate Change” (SKCCC) under the National Mission on Strategic Knowledge on Climate Change (NMSKCC).
We were engaged to provide technical support to DoE, UP Government and GIZ in developing Detailed Project Document (DPR) for establishing SKCCC for Uttar Pradesh. As part of the DPR, we defined the scope of work for SKCCC, organisation structure, detailed funding requirements and created a road map of activities both for short and long term.
