Lot 4: Climate Change, Nature, and Global Health

To build future economic, security, and technological partnerships, the U.K. Government is putting shared global challenges at the heart of its offer to low-and middle-income countries. To support this endeavor and ensure funding and support are available for countries to deliver on their climate ambitions, the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) designed the Expert Advisory Call Down Services 2 (EACDS2) Lot 4: Climate Change, Nature, and Global Health. This is a follow on from the recently concluded EACDS project, which DAI supported between 2016-2022.

EACDS is a technical advisory call-down service that provides rapid, quality-assured, short-term technical expertise to support the development of U.K. aid programs. The service is accessible to FCDO and other Government departments that deliver programs funded by U.K. Official Development Assistance. In managing Lot 4, DAI leads a 27-member consortium to respond to the varied requirements of service users.

The Lot 4 priority objective areas are:

  • Design, delivery, and monitoring of risk-informed development investments across key sectors.
  • Developing innovative approaches to tackle climate change and protect nature.
  • Informing and developing responses to the changing nature of systems and society.
