Webinar: Emerging Lessons from the Adaptation Fund Climate Innovation Accelerator (AFCIA) in Africa Region
CTCN, 4 May 2021
The launch of this new USD 10 million pilot small grants programme was announced at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP25) in Madrid. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)/CTCN and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) administrate the AFCIA and offer technical assistance (UNEP/CTCN) and grant funding (UNDP) to developing countries.
The CTCN with support from UNEP has received USD 5 million to foster innovation in adaptation. The 5-year programme contributes to CTCN technical assistance to developing countries, providing support to test, evaluate, roll out and scale up innovative adaptation practices, products and technologies. Until 2025, the CTCN will implement 25 technical assistance projects (up to USD 250,000 each) to enhance climate resilience and adapt to climate change in developing countries. Moreover, knowledge sharing and the exchange of best practices will be facilitated through the programme, which will strengthen opportunities for South-South and triangular cooperation on innovation in adaptation among developing countries. Technical assistance is available to governments, non-governmental organizations, community groups, entrepreneurs, young innovators, and others.
