NDF - Financing for climate change and development projects

Projects: Africa

The project has the general objective of strengthening municipal capacity for sustainable urban infrastructure provision and environmental management which enhance resiliency to climate related risks.
The NDF activities address the climate aspects of the PROGEP that aims to improve storm water drainage and flood prevention in peri-urban Dakar for the benefit of local residents.
The main objective is to accelerate the development of Kenya’s geothermal resources by taking the already available and incoming drilling equipment to efficient use.

The study will focus on pastoralist groups in the Sahel and Horn of Africa and support novel approaches to quantify and map drivers of vulnerability in drylands, and is expected to provide a comprehensive overview of the options for climate-resilient, low-carbon development in these resource poor areas.
The project will conduct a study to support the development of climate insurance instruments for specific types of climate risks in Africa.
The overall objective of the Electricity Expansion Project is to increase the capacity, efficiency and quality of electricity supply and increase access to electricity in urban, peri-urban and rural areas.
The project promotes transfer of knowledge and skill on the sustainable management of water resources through cost-effective climate-proofed water storage and conservation strategies.
The aim of the project is to reduce Tanzania’s vulnerability to climate change by identifying potential coastal climate impacts, and identifying priority adaptation investments to enhance resilience.

The project will add climate change dimension to the previously conducted Africa Infrastructure Diagnostics Study (AICD), a data and analytical platform documenting the status of main infrastructure sectors in 24 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The objective of the proposed NDF adaptation component is to develop the capacity of relevant stakeholders in Senegal to climate-proof road infrastructure planning, design and maintenance.
