Our Role

Our role involved leading the development of all the project activities, liaising with the client and national counterparts as well as developing the necessary reports and documents to request the GEF CEO Endorsement Approval. In addition, we supervised two field missions to the country aimed at data collection as well as aimed at interviewing potential project developers and co-financiers and presenting the project structure to local government officials and other relevant stakeholders for validation.
