This project seeks to scale-up existing CS capacities to advocate for ambitious proposals, bring on-the-ground expertise to the table, help embed GCF-funded activities in a broader societal support for transformation and increase accountability of national authorities underscoring the reality that Civil Society engagement is key to achieve the intended paradigm shift towards low-emissions and climate-resilient economies and societies (GCF funding mandate) which the GCF aims at.
The project aims to support broader African CS engagement in the critical early implementation phase of the GCF beyond existing capacities. The project consists of three work areas:
1. Preparing/testing readiness materials facilitating CSO engagement;
2. Supporting CSO engagement in key African countries (primarily those with early GCF projects);
3. Sharing of experiences at regional and global scale supporting expanded CSO engagement in Africa and beyond.
It is implemented in Malawi, Ghana, Kenya, Senegal, Morocco. The project is implemented through a consortium which PACJA is part of with GermanWatch and CARE Germany leading the process.
Enhanced capacity among Civil Society Organizations that enables them engage in a critical and constructive way with governments and relevant institutions in order to contribute to an increase of the transformative effect of GCF projects.
