Project context, objectives and description

Ethiopia’s Ministry of Finance (MOF) was accredited by the GCF board as direct access national entity in April 2016. Accreditation to the GCF represents an opportunity for MOF to continue developing a climate-resilient economy through the delivery of projects and programs by working with national and subnational actors. MOF has submitted its entity work program, which includes a list of pipeline projects that require readiness support from the GCF for further development. In the work program, relevant activities which meet conditions for accreditation upgrading are included. MOF would also like to further strengthen its operational capabilities in project management, environmental and social safeguards (ESS) and monitoring and evaluation work of the CRGE Facility.

The overall objective of the project is to build the project/program development, coordination and delivery capacity of the MoF (NIE/DAE), support the development of concept notes and proposals and strengthen Ethiopia’s engagement with GCF. This project is aligned with IO2. Increased green growth investment flows which enable partner governments to implement green growth policies and IO3. Improved multi-directional knowledge sharing and learning to empower local and external agents necessary to drive green growth processes in partner governments.
