CFPs: Develop a Heavy-Duty Vehicle Subsector Strategy for moving to Euro 6/VI Emission Standards (Kenya)

About

The Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) is seeking proposals to develop a heavy-duty vehicle subsector strategy and roadmap for moving to Euro 6/VI emission standards in Kenya.

Kenya’s National SLCP Plan that will be endorsed in 2023 has identified heavy-duty vehicle fuel efficiency improvements as one of the priority SLCP mitigation measures in the transport sector. Actions and implementation pathways include enforcement of existing emission standards for local manufacture or importation of heavy-duty vehicles and an inspection and maintenance programme for emission inspection and testing of in-use heavy-duty vehicles.

Through the development of a subsector strategy, this project will provide more up-to-date national vehicles emissions data to support Kenya’s Nationally Determined Contributions revision in 2025 and help advance the CCAC’s Green Freight proposal that UNEP is implementing with the Smart Freight Centre (SFC).

This project is also expected to help advance efforts to adopt ultra-low sulphur fuel (diesel) standards of 10ppm in the East African subregion, which is a fundamental prerequisite for progressing through to Euro 6/VI.

Funding Information
  • Estimated project cost: US$ 200,000 - US$ 250,000.

Expected Results
  • Applicants are encouraged to propose additional outputs as needed to ensure the expected project outcomes are achieved. Applicants can determine the scope of outputs if not specified. The project is expected to deliver at a minimum:

    • The Government of Kenya endorses a National Heavy-Duty Vehicles sub-sector strategy by project completion or soon after.

      • Indicator: Number of action plans, roadmaps, strategies, or other future plans with SLCP targets or mitigation measures formally adopted, endorsed and/or implemented.

      • Output 1.1: A heavy-duty vehicles strategy that includes at a minimum:

        • Measured mitigation potential from identified mitigation options

        • Estimated cost of implementation and sources of funding  

        • Co-benefits assessment  

        • Recommendations to enhance the MRV Framework

    • The Government of Kenya endorses a mandatory inspection and maintenance programme inspection program based on the East Africa Community (EAC) Euro IV standard and low sulphur diesel standards by the end of the project or soon after.

      • Indicator: Number of laws, regulations, or other policy mechanisms with SLCP targets or mitigation measures formally adopted, endorsed, and/or implemented.

      • Output 2.1: An action plan on vehicle emission testing and 10ppm fuels.

      • Output 2.2: Roadmap for moving towards Euro IV emission standards.

      • Output 2.3: Training workshops for the government officials to implement and enforce a mandatory heavy-duty vehicles inspections and maintenance programme.

    • The Government of Kenya endorses a roadmap to Euro VI emission standards by the end of the project or soon after.

      • Indicator: Number of laws, regulations, or other policy mechanisms with SLCP targets or mitigation measures formally adopted, endorsed, and/or implemented.

      • Output 3.1: Roadmap for moving towards Euro VI emission standards.

    • The Government of Kenya includes SLCPs in its Nationally Determined Contribution in 2025.

      • Indicator: Number of NDCs targeting SLCPs.

      • Output 4.1: Recommendations for NDC update.

Eligibility :
  • To be eligible for consideration, project proposals must meet the following requirements:

    • Complete and submitted before the deadline

    • Submitted by a non-governmental organization (NGO), intergovernmental organization (IGO), or other not-for-profit entity. Governments are not eligible to apply directly for funding in this call.

    • Requested funding is within the estimated budget amount, or includes a clear justification for additional expenses

    • Project duration is less than 24 months

    • Budget criteria are met and spending caps on expenses are respected.

  • Please note that entities will be required to provide the last three (3) audited financial statements to be considered for CCAC funding. These statements may be provided along with the application for funding or at the request of the CCAC Secretariat during the evaluation process.

  • For-profit entities may only participate in the project as stakeholders, co-funders, or end users. Applicants are encouraged to include for-profit entities in the development of the project proposal and/or during project implementation if their ownership of the proposed solution is key to the project’s success.
