PNG is one of the most vulnerable countries to the adverse effects of climate change. Adapting to and mitigating the impacts of climate change remains a high priority and this is guided and supported by PNG’s overall country policies and strategies such as the Vision 2050 Plan, the National Strategy for Responsible Sustainable Development for PNG, PNG Climate Change (Management) Act, and the National Climate Compatible Development Management Policy.
PNG places a high priority on accessing climate finance to assist in addressing its adaptation and mitigation needs. This Readiness Support proposal is the first attempt for PNG to access GCF funds to strengthen its engagement with the Fund. The aim of the project is to strengthen PNG’s engagement with the GCF and support the functions of Climate Change Development Authority (CCDA) as the National Designated Authority (NDA) to the GCF through three key outcomes:

• Strengthening country capacity, especially the CCDA as the National Designated Authority;
• Consultative stakeholder engagement and developing the GCF Country Programme; and
• Mobilizing and engaging with the private sector to contribute to climate resilience and low carbon development in PNG.

With the aim of these key outcomes, the GGGI team, under the leadership and guidance of the CCDA has delivered:
• Four regional workshops covering all 22 provinces in PNG and one sectoral awareness
raising workshop;
• A private sector forum, in coordination with Business Council of PNG and the Port Moresby Chamber of Commerce;
• Three successful webinars on GCF gender guidelines, GCF Country Program and the No Objection Procedure as well as a webinar training on climate finance monitoring and evaluation

The final project outputs that have successfully been delivered include:

• GCF PNG Country Program
• GCF No Objection Procedure
• GCF Operational Manual
• Gender Guidelines
• Private Sector Mobilization and Engagement Report
• CCDA Capacity Needs Assessment
• GCF Sectoral Training Manual.
