Read the GEF's press release and the IISD Reporting Services event summary.

This Ministerial Dialogue on the Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF), organized in the margins of the UN Secretary General's Climate Action Summit, was co-hosted by the Government of Germany, the LDC Group, and the Global Environment Facility (GEF).

Participants highlighted the importance of investing in climate change adaptation action in LDCs, which are most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and yet the least able to adapt. The event also kick-started the year of action on adaptation, spearheaded by the Global Commission on Adaptation.
