The LDCF grant USD$7 million to expand support in NAPs

An endorsement was issued by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) on May 27, 2016, to expand ongoing support to Least Developed Countries with Country-driven processes to advance National Adaptation Plans (NAPs). 

As the entity entrusted with the operation of the Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF) and the Special Climate Change Fund (SCCF), the GEF finances adaptation in vulnerable developing countries. The LDCF is providing $7.0 million towards the global project ‘Expanding the Ongoing Support to Least Developed Countries (LDCs) with Country-driven Processes to Advance National Adaptation Plans (NAPs)’. The project expands on the support provided through the LDCF-financed project ‘Assisting LDCs with Country-driven Processes to Advance NAPs’ and gives all remaining LDCs the opportunity to access one-on-one support tailored to their specific needs and circumstances to strengthen their institutional and technical capacities to start or advance their NAP process.

The project will be implemented by UNDP and UNEP.
