The Adaptation Fund NGO Network

 

The Adaptation Fund NGO Network is a coalition of NGOs and interested stakeholders following the development of the Adaptation Fund and its funded projects. It strives for a sustainable dynamic influence on politics and the engagement of civil society. It believes in the great chance to contribute to a successful implementation of projects funded by the Adaptation Fund in developing countries, for the benefits of those people and communities particularly vulnerable to climate change. The network directly supports NGOs in a number of developing countries, with a focus on direct access countries, by increasing their capacity to escort all relevant issues around the implementation of the project throughout the implementation period.

Adaptation: Get the connection

A national interplay of adaptation actors is important: How to track its progress?

For the past five years the Adaptation Fund NGO Network has been dedicating its work on accompanying projects carried out under the mandate of the Adaptation Fund. However, it is the reality that this is not sufficient to ensure a path towards rights-based adaptation funding and climate resiliency in our partner countries. This paper has the objective to look beyond the Adaptation Fund projects, particular assessing the state and level of interplay between different implementing and financing entities of adaptation projects being active in the same country. >> more

Bonn session: Paving the way to Paris

The Bonn Climate talks held from 01 to 11 June addressed the 42nd session of UNFCCC Subsidiary bodies and the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP). Based on the draft negotiation text produced at the Geneva session in February 2015, lining out options and elements for the Paris agreement, the Bonn June session was specifically focused on revising and consolidating the text. During the session modest progress was made and there are less than seven months left for negotiators to speed up their efforts to slim down the draft text for a new global climate deal due in Paris in December. >> more
