At the end of December 2012, the Philippine Department of Finance (DOF) submitted an application for accreditation as a national implementing entity (NIE) of the Adaptation Fund (AF). If the application is approved, the Philippines will be able to submit project proposals for funding through the AF’s direct access modality. The AF is encouraging countries to access funds using direct access by limiting the amount of funds it approves for multilateral implementing entities, which have received a large percentage of the AF’s funds to date.
The Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) / German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) Regional Programme on Coping with Climate Change in the Pacific Island Region (CCCCPIR), in partnership with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Ecosystem based Adaptation (EbA) project implemented by the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) and Choiseul Provincial Government (CPG) completed a climate change vulnerability and adaptation (V&A) assessment of Choiseul Province in Solomon Islands on 5 September 2012.
This report is intended as a background technical assessment for the ADAPT Asia-Pacific project. While adaptation financing can come from multiple domestic and international sources, this assessment focuses on gaining an in-depth understanding of the existing pool of international climate change funds which can provide resources to finance adaptation activities in ADAPT Asia-Pacific‘s target countries. Other sources of adaptation financing such as national budgets, private sector finance, philanthropy and ODA etc. are generally not covered in this assessment. The assessment findings on the international climate change funds will inform the ADAPT Asia-Pacific project‘s strategy to engage with these funds and support target countries to access the funds‘ resources.
