Adaptation Fund invites Grant for Developing Countries
 

Grant title: Adaptation Fund Grant

Deadline: 15th January 2019

About the Adaptation Fund

The Adaptation Fund was established under the Kyoto Protocol of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, and since 2010 has committed US$ 532 million to climate adaptation and resilience activities, including supporting 80 concrete adaptation projects.

Climate change is predicted to greatly affect the poorest people in the world, who are often hardest hit by weather catastrophes, desertification, and rising sea levels, but who have contributed the least to the problem of global warming. In some parts of the world, climate change has already contributed to worsening food security, reduced the predictable availability of fresh water, and exacerbated the spread of disease and other threats to human health.

To apply for project and programme funding, countries must submit proposals through an accredited institution. There are three categories of accredited institutions:

  • National Implementing Entities (NIEs)
  • Regional Implementing Entities (RIEs)
  • Multilateral Implementing Entities (MIEs)

Only institutions accredited by the Adaptation Fund may receive funding for adaptation projects. After accreditation, the entity may submit project proposals aligned with national priorities for consideration by the Adaptation Fund Board.

National and regional implementing entities fall under the Adaptation Fund’s Direct Access modality, which enables entities to directly access financing and manage all aspects of climate adaptation and resilience projects, from design through implementation, to monitoring and evaluation. Direct Access allows developing countries to strengthen capacity to adapt to climate change and build on local expertise.

Apply for Project Funding

After the Adaptation Fund Board decides to accredit an entity considering the recommendation by the Accreditation Panel, the entity can submit a concept or a full project proposal. Parties seeking financial resources from the Adaptation Fund must submit their project and programme proposals through accredited National, Regional, or Multilateral Implementing Entities. Proposals will be reviewed with respect to specific criteria available in the Operational Policies and Guidelines.

Proposals are accepted three times a year: twice before the biannual Adaptation Fund Board meetings and once during an intersessional review cycle. Please see the events calendar for upcoming submission deadlines.

The Adaptation Fund Board has also made available several small grants under the Readiness Programme to help National Implementing Entities (NIEs) provide peer support to countries seeking accreditation with the Fund and to build capacity for undertaking various climate finance readiness activities.
