Guide on the Inclusion of Air Pollutants in Climate Change

Deadline: February 9, 2021 Issued by: UNOPS
Type: RFP Country: Multiple destinations Language: English

(The eligibility is limited to organizations registered as a non-governmental organization, research and training institutions, community based organizations, companies with ability to operate on a no-profit basis or government agency under the relevant national legislation.). The proposed guide will build on Initiative for Climate Action Transparency's (ICAT) existing series of assessment guides and highlight considerations and methodologies that are specific to the inclusion of short-lived climate pollutants and air pollutants. The guide will encompass all aspects of Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV), including quality assurance and verification. Some aspects can be covered through references to other existing ICAT guides such as the stakeholder participation guide and the technical review guide as well as Supporting National Action and Planning (SNAP) guidance documents such as National Planning for reducing short-lived climate pollutants or Opportunities for Increasing Ambition of Nationally Determined Contributions through Integrated Air Pollution and Climate Change Planning: A Practical Guidance document. Measures that mitigate GHGs and short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) can also reduce the emissions of air pollutants that cause health impacts due to exposure indoors and outdoors and lead to reductions in crop yields. The document will outline practically how climate change policies and measures can be assessed in terms of their impact on air pollution, so that these impacts can be reported in climate change reporting, such as Biennial Transparency Reports, and considered in further policy development including future NDC enhancement. If relevant, impacts of air pollution abatement policies on GHG emissions should be also assessed. The document shall provide practical guidance on how countries can consider air pollution within the assessment of climate change policies and measures and offer examples of how some countries have integrated SLCP and air pollutant mitigation into national MRV systems, and the benefits that they have achieved from it. The target audience for this guide are planners and technical staff within Ministries of Environment and, as appropriate other sectoral ministries, who would be in charge of the national MRV system and those who would undertake related inventory work and assessments of air pollution impacts of climate change policies, and therefore the guide aims to provide methods and steps to achieve this. The guide shall draw on examples from low, middle and high-income countries to outline the benefits of integrating SLCP and air pollutant mitigation in national MRV systems and the practicalities of applying this approach. The guide will be piloted in existing Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) SNAP projects and in ICAT country projects.

Evaluation of Transit Services, Investment and Expectations

Deadline: February 12, 2021 Issued by: City of Ankeny
Type: RFP Country: US Language: English

The successful respondent will accomplish the following objectives:

  1. Evaluate existing transit service in Ankeny, including routes, times, schedules, and utilization of each of the services provided. It will be important to look at historical, pre-March 2020 utilization given decreases in service related to the COVID-19 public health pandemic. Surveying current transit usage is critical to determine who the typical transit user is in Ankeny and their frequency of use. (Most of this data is readily available, but some data collection will be needed.)
  2. Evaluate cost of existing transit service in Ankeny. The focus here should be on the cost to Ankeny residents relative to the services available. Cost should be broken down in various ways such as per rider, per route, per service, etc. A determination of the City’s return on investment in public transit is desired. The question “How does the demand for needed public transportation services compare to the financial investment made by City taxpayers” should be answered. While the City’s policymakers, with input from community stakeholders, have the responsibility to distinguish needs from wants, it should be understood that Ankeny does not build robust service levels in the hopes of solving every problem. Rather, Ankeny policymakers take the fiscal responsibilities of their roles into consideration and have an established track record of meeting the greatest needs in the most cost-effective ways possible. Not only should Ankeny’s elected policymakers and city management have a better understanding of public transportation needs and return on investment, consideration should also be given to project, to the extent possible, what impacts the community’s rapid growth might have in changing needs moving forward.
  3. Conduct a community survey or other form of data collection to determine citizen expectations for transit availability in the community, now and in the future. Using this data and combining it with growth projections, should help align future transit needs (including types of services) with citizen expectations for transit services.
  4. Determine citizen support for funding transit utilizing statistically significant methodologies, and at what amount in the future, through a survey or any other form of data collection. This could help guide future investment decisions for transit services in Ankeny.
  5. Engage Ankeny employers to determine current usage of transit by employees and what they expect future demand for transit will be by their employees, taking into consideration future growth.

This program is intended to reduce the cost of purchasing and installing DCFC EVSE for use in New York State and ultimately accelerate EV adoption.

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

Deadline: February 18, 2021 Issued by: National Capital Commission
Type: RFI Country: Canada Language: English/French

Transportation emissions pose one of the greatest challenges in achieving the Government of Canada’s Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission reduction targets. Contributing to the network of rechargeable stations enables electric vehicle drivers to contribute to tackling this challenge every time they plug in. The National Capital Commission (NCC) promotes sustainable transportation and mobility in the National Capital Region and, consequently, wants to install up to twenty (20) electric vehicle charging stations at NCC parking lots in Ontario and Quebec by end of 2021. This initiative will drive innovation to reduce carbon emissions, support renewable and low-carbon energies, and the development of clean technologies. There are over 100 NCC parking lots potentially available for the installation of rechargeable stations. Please note that some locations do not have electrical power and that the NCC electrical systems in its parking lots may vary in terms of condition and age. A condition assessment would have to be performed.

Plan of Cycle Paths and a System of Public Bicycles

Deadline: February 19, 2021 Issued by: Development Banl of America (CAF)
Type: EOI Country: Colombia Language: Spanish

The Departmental Development Plan 2020 - 2024 "Cundinamarca, a region that progress", within its competitiveness strategy and specifically seeking the efficiency and integration of transport modes and logistic processes, recognises the need to improve citizens' mobility conditions by consolidating a multimodal passenger connection system that effectively integrates with the transport systems currently being developed, such as the Western RegioTram project, consolidating and integrating them through territorial cycle routes with non-motorised modes. In the same way, both the Government and Bogota have made recent efforts to articulate and expand the network of bicycle routes, as well as seeking to implement a Public Bicycle System and other facilities to enhance the use of this mode and the associated infrastructure built both in the Region and the Capital District. The present project represents an opportunity to define an operation scheme of Public Bicycles and other facilities on the corridor to be built. Therefore, it is clear that it is both convenient and necessary to create the conditions for cycle-infrastructure, services, facilities and operation that will enable the Regiotram project to be strengthened and the mobility conditions of citizens to be improved, through a network of territorial cycle routes that are effectively integrated and linked to the transport systems of Bogotá and the Region.

Abrasion and Particulate Emissions in Rail Transport

Deadline: February 23, 2021 Issued by: Federal Railway Authority
Type: RFT Country: Germany Language: German

The aim of the research project is to obtain a cross-modal investigation approach in identifying data deficits and closing knowledge gaps in the area of abrasion emissions and particulate matter pollution, with the focus of the analyses and assessments being on rail transport. Although studies from Switzerland (BAFU) show that significantly lower amounts of abrasion emissions (fine dust PM10) are released into the environment than previously estimated, they still account for the majority of fine dust emissions caused by rail traffic. The main particle component, iron, is also unsurprising due to the possible sources of abrasion and proportions in rail traffic (brakes, wheels, rail, contact wire and pantograph). Despite initial research efforts, there is still a significant lack of information and data emission levels for Germany, the particle size distribution, the release of gaseous the release of gaseous pollutants, the chemical composition or the dispersion and dispersion and impact in/on different environmental components (water, soil, air). The tasks to be developed include:

  1. Identification of potential sources of abrasion and assessmentthe current data situation
  2. Examination and characterization of abrasion emissions from rail transport; and
  3. Dispersion calculation and risk assessment oftraffic-related abrasions.

The network will create links between and within towns as well as increase awareness of ebikes as a practical utility transport option. While use of public transport continues to be restricted, it is particularly important that people who do not drive or who do not have a car available, are aware of and have access to another form of transport which is attractive, affordable and convenient for getting to work and essential amenities. In the longer term, the eBike facilities will provide convenient access to the local bus and train network and the sites have been carefully identified to support our emerging ‘mobility hub’ locations, In this way, we will be able to stimulate the recovery of public transport services post-Covid. The successful tenderer must be able to demonstrate how their service compliments other forms of sustainable transport. In particular, East Lothian Council is looking to pilot a MaaS (mobility-as-a-service) application over the next few years and any new transport system will be expected to integrate seamlessly with this.

Computer Aided Dispatch/Automatic Vehicle Location/Intelligent Transportation System

Deadline: February 26, 2021 Issued by: Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council (COIC)
Type: RFP Country: US Language: English

Cascades East Transit’s existing combination of in-bus hardware, call reservation system, scheduling, tracking, and dispatch software does not provide our transit team, or its customers, the tools necessary to meet twenty first century transportation expectations.

Air Emissions Inventory 2011-2019

Deadline: March 11, 2021 Issued by: Ministry of Finance
Type: RFP (Twinning Call) Country: Montenegro Language: English

The specific objective of the call is to build the capacity of Nature and Environmental Protection Agency of Montenegro (NEPA) for regular reporting on air emissions and emissions of greenhouse gasses (GHG) and to enable the sustainability of the national air emission and GHG inventory system [...] Currently, the capacities of NEPA Montenegro, national competent authority for the compilation of air emissions inventory, are not sufficient and a large part of software tools for inventory establishment and maintenance are missing. Without an extended capacity building for the development of necessary software tools and inventory maintenance, which will result in the production of air emission data for the period 2011-2019, it would be impossible for Montenegro to define its national emission reduction commitments and develop a national air pollution control programme as required by Directive (EU) 2016/2284. Tools developed and capacities improved will serve to maintain the air emission inventory in years to come and perform an integrated action with obligations related to reporting of greenhouse gas emissions. To that aim, it is necessary to update the emission data and recalculate existing inventories making it comparable with the base year (2005).
