Trinomics, in collaboration with AMEC Environment & Infrastructure UK (lead) and Hayecon, has been awarded a contract by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) to support the IFC’s Investment Climate Department in developing the resource efficiency agenda for both public and private sector organizations, in particular by strengthening the approach to financial mechanisms as well as policies that are used to promote, encourage and support measures to improve industrial resource efficiency.
The objective of the project is to develop an approach/ toolkit on economic instruments and their policies that can promote resource efficiency in industries in the context of developing countries. There are two parts: (A) Jordan country analysis on financial instruments and policy design, and (B) development of an approach and toolkit on financial instruments for resource efficiency.
Part A will be carried out by Trinomics (in collaboration with Hayecon), which focuses on the understanding of actual and potential incentives for resource efficiency in Jordan and ensuring these are adequately described and categorised. The work covers assessment of incentives given to both firms operating in the industrial sectors, as well as financial institutions that may be called upon to lead against a plan for investment in resource efficiency measures. The analytical work in Part A will also include a review of regulatory framework across comparator countries, to benchmark the outputs of the Jordan analysis.
