Green Climate Fund - Civil Society Readiness: Focus Africa
As of: August 2018
Objective and activities
The Green Climate Fund (GCF) has the ambition to become the most important multilateral instrument in climate finance. The project aims to scale-up existing civil society capacities in Africa to advocate for ambitious proposals, bring on-the-ground expertise to the table, help embed GCF-funded activities in broader societal support and increase accountability of national authorities. The project aims to support broader African civil society engagement in the critical early implementation phase of GCF-projects through three work packages: 1. Preparation/testing of readiness materials facilitating civil society engagement; 2. Supporting civil society engagement in key African countries; 3. Sharing of experiences at regional and global scale, supporting expanded civil society engagement in Africa and beyond.
State of implementation/results
- Regional workshops in Uganda and Ivory coast implemented to foster exchange of the African civil society on climate finance.
- Participation of members of the African civil society at GCF board meetings.
