Papua New Guinea Country Programme

This Country Programme was developed as a part of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) Readiness and Preparatory Support Programme. The development of the Country Programme over the past year has brought together national stakeholders through a series of comprehensive consultations.

This Country Programme presents a strategic framework for advancing action on addressing climate change. As one of the countries most vulnerable to climate change, Papua New Guinea is prioritising the strengthening of institutions and completion of regulatory policy and reforms to mobilise both international and domestic climate finance.

The development of this Country Programme demonstrates that Papua New Guinea’s engagement with the Green Climate Fund is country-driven and aligned with our national planning frameworks and priorities, including the Medium Term Development Plan III (2018-2022), Nationally Determined Contribution (2015) and the National Climate Compatible Development Management Policy (2014). This Country Programme will also serve as a guideline for domestic, regional and international partners to prepare proposals that are harmonised with our national priorities and commitments.

The implementation of this Country Programme will require genuine and committed partnerships with the GCF, national stakeholders, Accredited Entities, and development partners. The Climate Change and Development Authority (CDDA), as the GCF National Designated Authority (NDA), and national government stakeholders will provide the oversight for the implementation of this Country Programme. This is a living document and it will be updated periodically in a consultative manner by CDDA to ensure progress is being tracked and any emerging and new priorities are reflected in the Country Programme.
