    Green Climate Fund country programme for Equatorial Guinea 2019
    Also available in:

    The Republic of Equatorial Guinea developed this Country Programme to provide an overview of the national scenario, the country’s political framework and its plans and priorities for combating climate change. The Country Programme includes a set of projects and programmes for submission to the Green Climate Fund (GCF). These projects and programmes meet GCF criteria and reflect national priorities. They are intended to prompt a national paradigm shift. This Country Programme is designed to act as a flexible and continually updated programming framework. It will be subject to periodic reviews and adjustments depending on the country’s plans and programmes. The list of ideas for priority projects or programmes may therefore be subject to changes and updates. The Country Programme is the outcome of a consultation process with various national stakeholders. These include ministries, local institutions, the private sector and civil society, as well as Accredited Entities (AEs) located in the country and the GCF focal point.

    Project
    Strengthening Capacities to Address Climate Change Impacts on Biosecurity and Food Security in Fiji, Samoa and Solomon Islands - TCP/SAP/3704 2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The project achieved all expected outcomes to a satisfactory level despite delays caused by COVID-19 restrictions, leading to two no-cost extensions. In all, the project contributed to increased knowledge on addressing climate change and transboundary/invasive species pressures on food security in the Pacific Islands by producing one pre-feasibility study, one concept note and one PowerPoint presentation. The pre-feasibility/technical study report focused on the correlation between climate change, transboundary/invasive species and their impacts on food security in Fiji, Samoa and Tonga. The study collected scientific evidence from regional and national organizations and highlighted concrete examples of transboundary movement of pests and diseases and their impacts at the national level. The report also analysed past and current climate-smart agriculture projects and included an environmental and social assessment, but not the economic and financial implications assessment that was originally stipulated. Additionally, this study also connected impacts associated with El Niño to outbreaks of pests and diseases in the Pacific Islands. The original concept note to be presented to the Green Climate Fund (GCF) was revised using information collected from the technical studies and technical inputs from both FAO and the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC). The SPC, as the Accredited Entity for the (GCF) project, has taken charge of the project and is responsible for submitting the updated concept note to the GCF Secretariat for review. FAO, as the Executing Entity, will continue working with SPC to formally submit the concept note to the GCF, address any comments and jointly develop the full project proposal for the GCF Board.
