Special Climate Change Fund (SCCF)
What is the SCCF?
Facts and Figures
As at June 30, 2013, the GEF, through SCCF-A, had provided $200.2 million for adaptation projects. Fifty projects and four programs had been approved for funding, mobilizing $1.5 billion in co-financing. As at July 31, 2013, some $368.2 million had been pledged to the SCCF, of which $246.4 million had been recieved.
The SCCF has experienced steady growth in recent years, however, the demand for SCCF adaptation resources remains high and significantly exceeds current supply of resources.
SCCF is available to all non-Annex 1 countries. The graph below reflects the regional distrubution of SCCF funding, as at May 31, 2013. See the latest LDCF/SCCF Progress Report for more information.
SCCF-B and Poznan Strategic Program
SCCF has a clear track of implementing innovative adaptation and technology transfer projects on the ground by: a) adhering to COP guidance (relevance); b) addressing adaptation needs through innovative schemes and emphasizing project sustainability (effectiveness); c) being cost-effective in its operations (efficiency).
SCCF projects are relevant and consistent with countries' needs, national plans, and strategies regarding climate change adaptation, emphasizing demand-driven support
