Facilitator for Climate Finance Workshop
The J-CCCP project aims to strengthen institutional and technical capacities in selected countries for iterative development of comprehensive NAMAs and NAPs that are country-driven, and based on existing national/sub-national development priorities, strategies and processes. Each country will be able to tailor the specific assistance it will receive as informed by its priorities and needs. It is envisioned that policy instruments, such as NAMAs, provide tailored frameworks to expand access to clean energy and can harness climate finance and help reduce the overall risk environment for potential investors, spurring actual investment in clean energy technologies. As the project is currently supporting the development of NAMAs in Belize, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Suriname (see Annex A below for full list of NAMAs with description and status), one specific aim of the project is to enhance capacity relating to the development of bankable NAMAs with outlined specific country actions.
Additionally, as part of the research and consultations supporting the situational analysis for the project, it was noted that “climate change is usually taken into account in a cursory manner during planning and budgeting process. The required medium to long-term and cross-sector planning that would enable a comprehensive assessment of the benefits and trade-offs of climate change adaptation (CCA) interventions for society is rarely undertaken.” During implementation of the project, specifically in the development of the NAPs this assessment of the climate change budgeting in the Caribbean has been underscored.
The workshop will focus on these two key areas – 1) developing bankable interventions based on the NAMAs completed under development and 2) exploration of budgeting process relating to climate change to support cross-sector national planning. These areas support the objective of enhancing capacity of countries in climate finance tools and as such, specific activities in the project will be centred on these areas.
