GCF Readiness In Somalia
In November 2021, the Green Climate Fund (GCF) approved a proposal for the Federal Republic of Somalia under the Readiness and Preparatory Support Programme. On 15th June 2022, the Green Climate Fund Readiness Programme started its implementation in Somalia, targeting the National Designated Authority, which is the newly established Ministry for Environment & Climate Change in Somalia. The project constitutes of Somalia’s first readiness project outside of the National Adaptation Plan strengthening through UNDP. The project activities fill the urgent need for NDA strengthening, development of a country programme and establishment of a GCF pipeline for Somalia. Global Water Partnership (GWP) is supporting the Federal Republic of Somalia as a Delivery Partner for this Readiness project and is responsible for overall supervision of implementation of this grant in Somalia. The execution of the Readiness project activities is carried out under the Technical Advisory, Guidance and Financial Management of the GWP Eastern Africa (GWPEA) in Entebbe, Uganda, by a dedicated Project Management Unit (PMU) hosted at the NDA (Ministry of Environment and Climate Change).
