Launched in 2014, the AF’s Climate Finance Readiness Programme has effectively provided capacity building support to accredited National Implementing Entities (NIEs) under the Fund’s pioneering Direct Access modality to enable greater access to adaptation finance and enhance country capacities in managing and implementing it across the range of project lifecycles.
Mr. Farayi Madziwa, Coordinator of the AF’s Climate Finance Readiness Programme, talks about the importance of Readiness in adaptation and how the AF’s Readiness Programme has supported the most vulnerable communities through a variety of activities and tools. He also discusses how the Fund’s Readiness Programme has adapted to working during the Covid-19 pandemic to continue to deliver support to countries and NIEs.
