Policymakers from Member States of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) improved their capacity to develop bankable climate projects in the land use sectors and to seek funding for them, specifically through the Green Climate Fund (GCF).
In two batches in April 2021, the ‘Climate Finance Training for Sector Experts (CliFit4SE) – promoting climate-smart land use in ASEAN’ has trained in total of 45 government officers, working in the food, agriculture, and forestry (FAF) sectors in the Southeast Asian region. They received information on climate finance opportunities and how to access them for implementing regional and national priorities and action plans effectively and transparently.
In the context of a ClFiT4SE, provided by the GIZ Climate Smart Land Use in ASEAN project to key ASEAN stakeholders, a gap in terms of accreditation of national entities to the GCF in the Southeast Asia region was observed. The note aims to shed light on the GCF accreditation process and to highlight some of the opportunities related to the accreditation of national entities in the region.
