The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water

International Public Finance for the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Process

Significant financing is needed throughout the entire NAP process, but especially within its implementation phase. The international community has established several multilateral funds—both under and outside of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change—that can finance aspects of the NAP process. Multilateral development banks are a further option for financing NAP processes. This webinar will explore these options, with presentations on adaptation finance available through the Green Climate Fund and insights into Ethiopia’s experience accessing international public finance.
