Hosted by the Government of Solomon Islands, the regional workshop for Pacific Least Developed Countries (LDCs) was organized by the GEF Secretariat for Kiribati, Solomon Islands, Timor Leste, and Tuvalu.
The focus of this workshop series is on bringing together experts who are directly involved in adaptation project planning, decision making, and implementing adaptation action. Invited participants include the GEF’s Council members and alternate Council members from the region, as well as representatives from GEF agencies, the GEF’s Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel, the Green Climate Fund, and the LDC Group within the UNFCCC.
The objective of this regional workshop was to create awareness and develop enhanced skills and knowledge to prepare and supervise the implementation of priority adaptation needs. In particular, it aims to strengthen the capacity and skills of workshop participants by providing them with the information and tools to assist them in translating their priority adaptation needs to seek funding through the GEF’s two specialist adaptation funds, the Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF) and Special Climate Change Fund (SCCF).
The workshop is based on the GEF’s ongoing implementation of its programming strategy on adaptation for the LDCF and SCCF for the 2022-2026 period.
