Briefing on the 17th meeting of the Adaptation Fund Board

From now on more national than multilateral implementing entities
Briefing 17th meeting AFB

This briefing paper summarises the key issues that were on the agenda of the 17th meeting of the Adaptation Fund Board (AFB) that took place from 14 to 18 March in Bonn.

Among the key issues were the consideration of further project and programme proposals to be approved by the AFB, the accreditation of three National Implementing Entities from Kenya, Mexico and Argentina, and the Guidance document for proponents to better prepare a request for funding. Also during this meeting, they was intended to be a discussion on the Investigative Procedure to prevent the AF from misuses and mismanagements of its resources as well as on the Fundraising Strategy to be adopted to help the AF scaled up its resources.

Last but not the least the AFB members were expected to make their comments on the performance review of its Trustee and Secretariat.
