  1. LDCF/SCCF Climate Change Adaptation Strategy GEF Familiarization Seminar January 17 – 19, 2012 BonizellaBiagini, Head, Climate Change Adaptation Strategy and Operations, Global Environment Facility

  2. LDCF SCCF Adaptation Strategy: Pillars • Responsiveness to UNFCCC guidance • Responsiveness to vulnerable developing country needs • Moving to the next stage of LDCF and SCCF funding – a programmatic approach • Responsiveness to Independent Evaluations of the LDCF and SCCF • Complementarily among different adaptation-related funds

  3. LDCF SCCF Adaptation Strategy: Pillars • LDCF and SCCF Strategy focuses on financing adaptation • An increase in adaptation funding, in order to support the increase in volume and scale of intervention – e.g. programmatic approach • An increase in the predictability of the funding, in order to better facilitate medium-term planning • Channeling GEF-managed adaptation financing resources through LDCF and SCCF – GEF-5 strategy does not include adaptation.

  4. LDCF and SCCF Strategic Objectives • Reduce vulnerability to the adverse impacts of climate change – e.g. reduced risks to economic losses through implementation of adaptation measures • Increase adaptive capacity to respond to the impacts of climate change – e.g. within relevant development sectors and natural resources; diversified and strengthened livelihoods and sources of income • Promote transfer and adoption of adaptation technologies –as defined under the Climate Convention (example: SCCF-TT Jordan)

  5. LDCF/SCCF Adaptation Strategy 2010-2014 • Goal: To support developing countries to increase resilience to climate change through both immediate and longer-term adaptation measures in development policies, plans, programs, projects and actions. • Impact: Reduce absolute losses due to climate change, including variability. 5

  6. LDCF and SCCF – Financing Concrete Adaptation • LDCF and SCCF – Focus on adaptation • Managed and administered independently of from the GEF Trust Fund • Total Pledges : Approximately $772 M • LDCF: $531.7M • SCCF: $240.6M • Approved Projects and Funding • LDCF: 54 projects, $216 M • SCCF: 43 projects, $166 M • 48 National Adaptation Programs of Action financed (for LDCs) $12 M As of December 30, 2011

  7. Innovative Features of LDCF/SCCF GEF TRUST FUND: • Incremental cost • Global benefits • STAR • Co-financing LDCF & SCCF: • Additional cost • NO Global benefits requirement • No STAR • Existing BAU Financing • Higher MSP ceiling for LDCF • Rolling basis approval for LDCF • Follows the Principle of Equitable Access

  8. Features of LDCF/SCCF

  9. Pioneering Activities in Priority Sectors and Areas of Intervention: LDCF Food Security and Agriculture drought resistant crop, farming techniques Water Resources Management resilient water infrastructure, rainwater harvesting, micro surface and ground water treatment facilities Disaster Risk Management Integrated disaster risk management strategies, glacial lake outburst floods hazard management Community Based Adaptation forest management, mangrove restoration, alternative livelihoods, strengthened animal health systems Natural Resources Management efficient wood management, ecotourism, fishing around mangroves, renewable energy use Health climate change challenges incorporated into health programs, use of medicinal plants to treat diseases Infrastructure critical infrastructure

  10. LDCF Status • 47 NAPAs completed • 42 countries have at least one NAPA implementation project • 54 total projects and programs approved • 1 regional programmatic approach • Total grant approved $216 million (Dec 2011)

  11. NAPA Priorities and LDCF Funding

  12. LDCF Around the World Africa: 63% of the total LDCF Funding 27 Projects 24 Countries Asia: 33% of the total LDCF Funding 12 Projects 9 Countries SIDs: 20% of the total LDCF Funding 15 Projects 10 Countries

  13. Pioneering Activities in Priority Sectors and Areas of Intervention: SCCF Water Resources Management drainage and water-saving technologies, increased reservoir capacity through energy efficiency of turbines Agriculture/Land Management drip irrigation, drought and salinity resistant crop varieties Infrastructure Developmentinfrastructure for alternative water sources, e.g. climate resilient roads and harbors Fragile Ecosystems repopulation of coral reefs, buffer zones and biological corridors between vulnerable wetlands Integrated Coastal Zone Management beach reinforcement and nourishment, protection structures (e.g. jetties, groins, breakwaters) Health heat-wave warning systems, surveillance and response for malaria epidemics Disaster Risk Management  early warning systems Cross Cutting Issues information sharing systems to monitor crop choices and contingency crop plans, and pest and disease severity

  14. SCCF Status • By the end of Dec 2011, the SCCF adaptation program (SCCF-A) had mobilized $150 million for projects and programs in non-Annex I countries. • 39 projects have been approved for SCCF-A funding, leveraging $1.03 billion in co-financing. • SCCF-B has mobilized $16 M in 4 technology transfer projects

  15. Distribution of SCCF Funding

  16. Geographic Distribution of the SCCF-A Funds

  17. Newer Grounds • Scaling up and maximizing impacts • Programmatic Approaches • Responds to both donors and recipient demand • New procedures under the GEF-5 makes it possible • Building synergies and leveraging funds • GEF’s conventional operations under the GEF Trust Fund • Multi Focal and Multi Trust Fund Initiatives

  18. Multi-Trust Fund and Programmatic Approaches A number of LDCF/SCCF programs and projects have mainstreamed adaptation into: • Natural Resource Management • Mitigation efforts • Sustainable Forest Management/REDD • Finance and Technology Mechanisms

  19. Multi-Trust Fund and Programmatic Approaches Mobilized over $145 million from the other GEF Trust Funds

  20. Opportunities • Modalities for scaling up already exist and are operational • Funds have experience in multi trust fund projects and programmatic approaches • The momentum of growth and innovation in adaptation activities can lead to fulfillment of COP guidance • LDCF and SCCF has generated concrete adaptation benefits and made development sectors climate resilient. • Continuation of such efforts can make significant progress in meeting adaptation needs of vulnerable countries.
