News

21 October  2013: Climate change adaptation experts from the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) are supporting ministries and the private sector in Benin to advance the process of national adaptation. 

Ministry officials and representatives of the private sector in Benin are benefitting from UNEP / UNDP expertise, with the goal to strengthen national institutions to access the Green Climate Fund (GCF) alongside other significant sources of climate finance.
 
Benin is a pilot country for the inception phase of the GCF Readiness Programme. This access programme is coordinated through UNDP and the World Resources Institute (WRI).
 
The National Adaptation Plan Global Support Programme (NAP-GSP) is linking with the GCF Readiness Programme to maximize opportunities to coordinate adaptation actions in Benin.
 
The outcome will be the development of a pipeline of vital and viable national projects drawn from national climate change strategies, plans and policies.
 
This in turn will bring on-stream investment from the private sector in climate change adaptation.
