This document is a practical guide for conducting (pre)feasibility studies for adaptation projects to be submitted to the Green Climate Fund (GCF) in Francophone LDCs in Sub-Saharan Africa.
According to the requirements of the Green Climate Fund (GCF), all funding proposals submitted to the Fund for review must be based on a pre-feasibility or feasibility study and accompanied by several technical studies, which allow for the assessment of the relevance and the practicality of activities planned under the proposal.
Climate Analytics has led pre-feasibility and feasibility studies of three adaptation projects in three French-speaking Least Developed Countries (LDCs) in Sub-Saharan Africa as part of the Support Project for Science-based National Adaptation Planning in francophone Sub-Sahara African Least Developed Countries (PAS-PNA) project, in order to provide scientific evidence for the development of concept notes and funding proposals to be submitted to the GCF.
Based on this experience, CA has drafted these guidelines which provide practical guidance for conducting pre-feasibility or feasibility studies in francophone African LDCs. They respond to the lack of information on the methodological approach for conducting pre-feasibility and/or feasibility studies of adaptation projects/programmes within the framework of the GCF processes. It is a synthesis document that draws on lessons learned from the implementation of two pre-feasibility studies and one feasibility study of three adaptation projects in Benin, Burkina Faso and Senegal. It provides the information and elements necessary for a successful conduct of a (pre)feasibility study of adaptation projects.
