Facilitating access to Climate Finance

This coalition, created in 2018, has since worked on facilitating access to climate finance for local and non-state actors, in a context where the lack of financial resources is often an obstacle to succesful implementation of projects. This coalition works to make existing funding more easily and equitably accessible for all actors, through the sharing of information on opportunities of funding and experiences of stakeholders, and improving the partnership framework bewteen state and non-state actors. It also works to support project leaders in their search for funding, by disseminating knowledge and building capacities to better respond to calls for projects.
