About us

The UNDP-AFCIA programme operates within the framework of the multi-partner platform known as the Adaptation Innovation Marketplace (AIM). Launched by UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner in 2021, this strategic platform is designed to advance scaled-up adaptation efforts at the local level, with a specific focus on civil society, non-governmental organizations, and innovative women entrepreneurs and young people. The marketplace aggregates resources, expertise, and technical support to facilitate local access to climate change adaptation finance.

The UNDP- AFCIA programme is supported by financial contributions from the Adaptation Fund and the European Union. To date, it has granted 44 micro and small awards to locally-led organizations in 33 countries worldwide, accelerating their innovative solutions to enhance resilience in the most vulnerable communities.
