Following the Adaptation Fund into the post-Paris era
As of: March 2019
Objective and activities
The project contributes to an enhanced international architecture for climate change adaptation to better assist most vulnerable groups from developing countries to adapt to the increasing adverse effects of climate change. The implementation of national and regional adaptation fund (AF) projects as well as AF policies and processes are improved as a result of the successful interaction between civil society organizations, national governments and the AF. To voice the interests of the most vulnerable, partner NGOs in selected developing countries will promote multi-stakeholder processes related to the AF. This constructive exchange among the civil society and national decision makers provides the basis for improved regional and international adaptation finance policies. Such policies focus on the needs of the most vulnerable groups as a result of constructive input from the AF-NGI-Network. Moreover, South-South learning has improved due to increased regional collaboration.
