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.

Meeting climate goals is becoming a matter of fundamental concern for many countries. For the most vulnerable countries, meeting global mitigation targets to limit the increase in global warming to below 1.5 degrees above preindustrial levels is a matter of survival - because of their limited financial, technical, technological and human capacity to cope with increasing and more frequent climate-related adverse events. This analysis takes stock of the resources mobilised through funding proposals submitted to and approved by the Green Climate Fund over the period from November 2015 to July 2021 (Board 29). It is based on data published by the GCF.
