Projects & Programmes on Waitlist

MIE Projects Waitlist

In December 2010, the Adaptation Fund Board decided to ensure that national implementing entities (NIEs) and regional implementing entities (RIEs) could access at least the same total amount of financing as multilateral implementing entities (MIEs). The Board recognized that as these entities took on their new roles in accessing Adaptation Fund project financing, their development of full proposals often took longer than it did for MIEs.

The Board thus placed a 50 per cent cap on financing for MIEs proposals. If the cumulative share of funding for MIE proposals, out of all project funds, would reach the 50 per cent cap, additional MIE proposals, once technically cleared by the Board, would be placed in a “pipeline” and funded when additional funds were received by the Fund.

Regional Projects Waitlist

At the 33rd Adaptation Fund Board meeting in March 2019, the Board decided to establish a waitlist for regional projects and programmes that have been technically cleared but for which funds are not readily available within the annual allocation for the Fund’s Window for Regional Projects and Programmes. Regional projects placed in the waitlist will be approved as funding becomes available through a new allocation by the Board.
