Implementing Entities

Implementing entities are the national, regional and multilateral institutions accredited by the Adaptation Fund Board to receive direct financial transfers from the Fund in order to carry out adaptation projects and programmes.

Kyoto Protocol Parties that are eligible to apply for funding must use either a National Implementing Entity (NIE), a Regional Implementing Entity (RIE), or a Multilateral Implementing Entity (MIE) to access the Adaptation Fund.

In order to become accredited, entities are required to meet the legal and fiduciary standards adopted by the Board as detailed in the Operational Policies and Guidelines.
