Strategic Frameworks support for the Republic of Congo through FAO

The readiness funds will be used to strengthen the GCF cell and its capacities to coordinate GCF efforts in the country, with a particular focus on the forestry and land use sector. This sector is the largest source of emissions in the country and has been the focus of several international partners active in the country. Notably, the readiness support will be used to organize regular meetings with key partners in the field, strengthen the country’s capacities on the role of the forestry and land use sector in the national GCF country programme, perform outreach/communication activities about the country’s GCF portfolio in the forestry and land use sector (nationally and internationally), and procure material as well as consultancy services to assist the Focal Point in its mandate. Finally, the funds will be used to undertake studies and consultations targeting the country’s private sector actors in the forestry and land use sector (including smallholders as well as small and medium forestry enterprises) and in the renewable energy sector, which are important focus of the country’s nationally determined contribution (NDC). These studies and consultations will allow the country to strategize and assess potential areas of GCF support in this sector.
