Green Climate Fund Readiness Programme in Fiji
The project is supporting the Government of Fiji in strengthening their national capacities to effectively and efficiently plan for, access, manage, deploy and monitor climate financing in particular through the Green Climate Fund (GCF) once it is fully operational.
These activities will be planned and implemented in line with the Fiji National Climate Change Policy. The project will target two important aspects of the GCF approach, access to funds and private sector engagement, both of which will require significant preparatory work in many countries before GCF financing will be possible at scale.
- Strengthened coordination among stakeholders and institutions of national and sub-national entities to manage and deliver climate finance.
- Strengthened institutional capacities (e.g. fiduciary standards) to align with internationally accepted benchmarks and safeguards, as described in the Green Climate Fund and Adaptation Fund, and identifying an implementing entity for direct access under the AF and GCF.
- Development of a system for identifying, prioritizing, and developing climate change programs/projects with a view to helping them attract finance.
- Engaged private sector and systems in place to attract private sector resources towards climate change goals.
