The Ministry of Climate Change (MoCC), Government of Pakistan (GoP) is implementing the Ten Billion Tree Tsunami Program (TBTTP) all over Pakistan in all federating units including the four provinces, Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and Gilgit Baltistan (GB).
TBTTP has an in-built monitoring mechanism at sub national levels by the respective provincial agencies as well as at national level by the Ministry of Climate Change itself. However, keeping in view the international significance of the Pakistan’s government flagship program (TBTTP), Ministry of Climate Change, Government of Pakistan has mandated the consortium consists of IUCN, International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources, Food and Agriculture Organization of UN and World-Wide Fund for Nature Pakistan to conduct independent Third-Party Monitoring and Evaluation (TPM&E) of TBTTP from 2020 to 2025 in Pakistan. For this purpose, a letter of Support was signed between Consortium and MoCC.
In order to ensure the impartiality and independence of the third-party monitoring and evaluation of TBTTP, the Consortium deemed it appropriate not to seek funding from the Government of Pakistan but to explore funding from bilateral and multilateral donors interested in financing climate change mitigation and action on the UN SDGs. As a result of efforts of the Consortium, BMZ through KfW agreed to finance the independent TPM&E over the period of next four years.
MoCC has asked IUCN Pakistan to coordinate the independent TPM&E of the TBTTP by the Consortium comprising of IUCN, FAO Pakistan and WWF-Pakistan, IUCN Pakistan will therefore act as the secretariat for the Consortium. The Consortium partners have proposed to establish a modest Project Management Unit (PMU) for executing the TPM&E, therefore the position will be based at PMU housed in IUCN Pakistan at Islamabad.
