South-South Cooperation Grants (climate adaptation)

Organisation: Adaptation Fund
Application deadline: 31 August 2016
Apply: South-South Cooperation Grants (climate adaptation)

Description: The Adaptation Fund Climate Finance Readiness Programme includes a component aimed at increasing South-South cooperation among accredited National Implementing Entities (NIEs) and those seeking accreditation. Under this activity, developing countries that are Parties to the Kyoto Protocol and do not yet have an accredited NIE may receive support from an accredited NIE in one or more of the following areas:

  • identifying potential NIE candidates;
  • assisting NIE candidates in the preparation of applications to be submitted to the Fund;
  • providing support and advice during the application process.

It is expected that such peer support will effectively help build national capacity and sustainability.
