As of: August 2019
Objective and activities
The goal is to support the GoK, through its Climate Change Directorate, to operationalize elements of the Climate Change Act and implement the elements of the National Climate Change Action Plan. GNIplus will provide expert legal, technical and financial advice to support the creation of enabling environments to scale up public and private investment in technically well-designed low-carbon and climate-resilient project pipelines; improve governance and transparency through the creation of robust and enforceable regulations and clear decision-making procedures that provide investor confidence; and build national capacity. Measures include: comprehensive stakeholder engagement; deep dive analysis to assess legal and policy barriers and the technical feasibility of project pipelines; and the development of an implementation roadmap including financing solutions and an MRV system.
