LDCF, voices from the ground

About the event

Support from the GEF-managed Least Developed Countries Fund is highly relevant to countries’ broader development policies, plans, and programs. Additionally, a large portion of the LDCF’s work is inherently aligned with the Paris Agreement through its support of adaptation related NDCs/INDs. Notably, in response to recent COP guidance, the LDCF has enhanced domestic institutional capacities in LDCs by supporting institutional capacity development through the involvement of national institutions in LDCF project development, approval and delivery. This session will showcase success stories of the LDCF and highlight voices from the ground.
