NDA Strengthening and Country Programming support for Niger through UNEP

The requested Readiness Programme aims at strengthening the capacity of the recently nominated GCF Focal Point of Niger and the development of strategic frameworks, including a country programme identifying country priorities, in order to enable effective engagement with the Fund. The NDA requires significant capacity building in order to develop a thorough understanding of the functioning of the Fund and the requirements for effectively engaging with it, and to then relay the acquired knowledge to other relevant national stakeholders. Furthermore, adaptation and mitigation programming priorities that are consistent with the GCF’s Initial Investment Framework, need to be defined in a coherent way through a multi-stakeholder process that builds on existing relevant initiatives, under the guidance of the NDA. This work will build on national climate change strategies, plans, and priorities are already formulated in several official documents. Altogether they constitute the basis for a country programme, which is the cornerstone for the preparation, implementation and consolidation of resulting projects/programmes.
