Training-Workshop to Develop Concept Notes of Indigenous Peoples for the Green Climate Fund for Community-Based Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation

6-8 February 2017

This training workshop provides participants with unique insights and methodologies to more effectively include indigenous peoples in project implementation and design. The core objectives are to learn about what is needed to develop a successful GCF project, to develop a GCF-able programme/proposal(s) to take forward, and to agree upon a process for developing the outcomes and submitting them to the GCF Facilitator.

Sessions include information on the outcomes of the Workshop on the Proposed Indigenous Peoples' Policy, including Safeguards and Redress Mechanism for the GCF, information sharing sessions on thematic areas, and training on ‘Resilience, Adaptation Pathways and Transformation Assessment’ (RAPTA) methodology. Participants will use the lessons learned to develop project proposals and concept notes, and build a 2017 work plan for further development of proposals for submission to the GCF.
