Project Development Manual: Papua New Guinea and Green Climate Fund
This is the first edition of the Papua New Guinea (PNG) Green Climate Fund (GCF) Project Development Manual. The main objective of this manual is to guide and inform national stakeholders on how to develop project proposals to access and utilise the GCF efficiently and effectively.
The manual outlines how stakeholders can scale up and replicate proven and transformative climate adaptation and mitigation solutions for achieving the development and climate goals of PNG. Addressing climate change challenges in PNG requires significant financial and technical resources, and the GCF is one of the main sources of support. Climate finance refers to capital flows which target climate change actions to either reduce or remove greenhouse gas emissions (mitigation) or improve resilience to a changing climate (adaptation).
The manual provides essential information and guidance on how to effectively engage with key stakeholders, including the Climate Change and Development Authority (as the GCF National Designated Authority), GCF Accredited Entities, Executing Entities, and other key players, in the identification, development and implementation of GCF financed projects and programmes.
