The Adaptation Fund NGO Network

Startseite Slider

 

The Adaptation Fund NGO Network is a coalition of civil society organisations (CSOs) engaging in discussions and debates on the Adaptation Fund's policies and closely following the planning and implementation of the Fund's projects. The Network's aim is to support those most vulnerable to climate change and ensure their benefit from the Adaptation Fund. This is why it works on strengthening transparent and participative processes within the Fund. The Network aims to ensure the effective engagement of civil society not only at Fund level, but also at the local level, throughout project planning and implementation. Making the Adaptation Fund work for the most vulnerable communities will strongly rely on the input and engagement of global civil society. >>> more 'About us'

Cover Tracking Paper
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.
