The Adaptation Fund was established to finance concrete adaptation
projects and programs in developing countries that are parties to the Kyoto
Protocol and are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate
South-South Cooperation Grants are meant to
increase peer-to-peer support among accredited National Implementing Entities (NIEs) and those seeking
accreditation. These grants are aimed at strengthening the capacity of
countries seeking accreditation with the Fund to undertake activities, and to
prepare and submit relevant documents that lead to accreditation with the Fund.
This initiative is part of the Adaptation Fund.
The Adaptation Fund is USD 476 million. The South-South Cooperation Grant is drawn directly from this pool.
South-South Cooperation Grant applications for 2018 are closed and the Adaptation Fund is not accepting applications. Check this webpage for updates.
