9) Optional: Potential/desired Spokes
If you have a particular Spoke(s) in mind who might be well-placed to respond to this request, please indicate that here. If any discussion with such organisations has taken place already, please provide some details on that engagement (e.g., during bilateral and/or multilateral Country Dialogues).

10) Estimated resources
Estimate of financial and/or technical resources that will likely be required in addressing the topic of this request.
Please note that the Facility does not have the capacity to provide direct, bespoke funding support since the RRF platform is primarily intended to provide technical assistance through the expertise of its Spoke network. However, some financial assistance may be available at the discretion of the Spoke Network, depending on the project. If funding is made available, it will primarily support the cost of carrying out the requested technical assistance. ZEV-RRF-coordinated financial assistance cannot cover costs for purchasing, upgrading, or repairing physical assets.
