Contract Options
LGs must consider the full range of contracts needed to develop and operate Climate Projects, leveraging private sector expertise and capital:

→ Service Level Agreements (SLAs): Insome cases, the LG may contract a private sector company to deliver the service. This approach does not require the establishment of a separatelegal entity. In some cases, the private company uses its own balance sheet toraise debt to fund the project.

→ Engineering Procurement Construction (EPC) contracts: To construct complex infrastructure used by a Climate Project (such as Waste-toEnergy Projects), an EPC Contract between the LG and the contractor pays the contractor to deliver a complete contract for a fixed price by a fixed date, reducing the risk of cost overruns and non performing technology.
