Creation of a network to support the Adaptation Fund under the Kyoto Protocol through capacity-building in civil society

Programme Office of the International Climate Initiative (IKI) by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB)

This project is working to enable civil society in developing countries to provide constructive input on the implementation of projects under the Adaptation Fund (AF) and on policy processes related to the Fund itself. The project has created a network of NGOs that serves as an independent observer for both the implementation of AF projects as well as climate finance instruments. The network sets up platforms for dialogue; it also organises field visits, creates official submissions for international policy processes and carries out studies. This helps to improve the implementation of AF projects and furthers the national debate on climate change adaptation. Using the project website and meetings of the AF steering committee, the project is promoting knowledge exchange and strategy development among the partners. It also systematically feeds experiences generated within the context of the AF into debates on the Green Climate Fund (GCF), as well as the UNFCCC agreement expected for 2015.
