Gulf Times: QFFD signs contribution pact with Adaptation Fund
Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) has signed an ‘unearmarked’ Contribution Agreement with the Adaptation Fund that will go towards funding adaptation and resilience programmes for the most vulnerable countries to climate change, Qatar News Agency (QNA) reports.
The new contribution aims to finance climate change adaptation projects in developing countries that are particularly vulnerable to the adverse impacts of climate change, including those in least developed countries (LDCs) and small island developing states (SIDS).
The new partnership between QFFD and the Adaptation Fund will focus on helping the most vulnerable countries adapt and build resilience to climate change and will be strongly aligned with climate change integration guidelines between both parties.
