In 2016, accredited entities of the Adaptation Fund established a Community of Practice aimed at providing an avenue for knowledge exchange, learning and experience sharing amongst National Implementing Entities to support direct access to climate finance. The Community of Practice has grown to include Direct Access Entities (DAEs) of the Green Climate Fund (GCF).
As the only accredited entity to the Adaptation Fund, the DRFN participated in a 3 day workshop in Durban, South Africa.
Participants to this workshop also had the opportunity to visit the adaptation project being undertaken by South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) as the NIE for the Adaptation Fund.
This workshop elected a new secretariat, finalised the governance framework of the Community of Practice which included the roadmap and milestones.
