Project context, objectives and description
The project was designed to support (“top-up”) the GCF Readiness Project in PNG (PG1-2000-1) with KOICA providing funding. Therefore, the project has very similar impact, outcome, and outputs to the GCF Readiness Project, but at a smaller-scale supporting some specific activities. The project mainly supported capacity building and strengthening of information for climate change project development stakeholders.
A key challenge to accessing climate finance is the lack of information available and knowledge of the stakeholders in PNG, including government, local government, private sector and NGOs/CSOs, on how to develop a good climate change project and access climate finance, including from GCF.
The project objective is to increase PNG’s access to GCF by i.) Enhancing the capacity of CCDA, Provincial Climate Change Committees (PCCCs) in 4 regions, and key stakeholders on climate change project identification and development ii.) Developing a Climate Change Project Identification and Development Manual, which is a tool for the CCDA and project developers to identify, design, develop and submit climate change projects, with a focus on GCF. This project is aligned with IO3. Improved multi-directional knowledge sharing and learning to empower local and external agents necessary to drive green growth processes in partner governments.
