NDF - Financing for climate change and development projects

Projects: Regional Africa

The objective of the project is to enhance equitable and sustainable climate resilient development and management of African water resources for poverty alleviation, socio-economic development, regional cooperation, and the environment.
The objective of the proposal is to mainstream climate and disaster risk management in African countries’ strategies, policies and investments in order to enable countries to meet the demand to reduce the vulnerability of their own people, assets, livelihoods and economies to climate and disaster-related risks.
The objective of ClimDev Special Fund (CDSF) is to strengthen the institutional capacities of African national and sub-regional bodies to formulate and implement effective climate-sensitive policies by providing up-to-date information to support related activities.

The project introduced a set of activities to boost the adaptive capacity and climate resilience of small Fairtrade tea producer organisations in Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.
The project contributes to environmental sustainability as well as rural poverty reduction and gender equality by increasing use of renewable energy in tea factories in Rwanda and Uganda.
The project assists East Africa Rift Valley States (EARS) countries in completing the exploratory phase of geothermal development.

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 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.
