The Adaptation Fund Civil Society Network (AF CSO Network), formerly the AF NGO Network, began its work in 2010. It served as an informal coalition of several civil society organisations (CSO), engaging in discussions and debate on Adaptation Fund policies and closely following Adaptation Fund projects’ planning and implementation. This previously quite informal initiative of a few Southern CSOs gradually became institutionalised, resulting in formulation of the AF CSO Network’s governance structure as outlined in this document (pls. check download section on this site).
We would like to thank all stakeholders who dedicated the time and effort to provide us with valuable feedback on the first draft of the governance arrangements during the consultation process. We hope that all their valuable inputs and suggestions are well reflected in this final version of the document.
