National and Regional Readiness
We provide analysis of climate finance readiness needs and gaps in the Caribbean region and in Africa and we implement activities to address them in the short and medium term. This includes measures to meet GCF deadlines in designating and establishing National Designated Authorities and Focal Points, as well as defining countries’ strategic frameworks.
We are an implementing partner of GIZ for the Caribbean Readiness Programme in partnership with the Caribbean Development Bank. The programme aims at identifying gaps, challenges and opportunities for accessing climate financing in the region. We contribute to defining a structured work-programme on climate financing readiness for the region.
We have organized and facilitated regional readiness workshops in partnerships with the Caribbean Development Bank (CBD) and GIZ that focused on identifying gaps, challenges and opportunities and laid the basis for more targeted region and country specific interventions in subsequent phases of the programme.
