The Special Climate Change Fund (SCCF), established by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 2001, is managed by the Global Environment Facility. 

Extensive consultations with stakeholders guided development of a new strategy for 2022-2026. The strategy builds on existing strengths, while filling two major gaps in the adaptation finance landscape. Its two funding windows focus on supporting the adaptation needs of Small Island Developing States (window A) and strengthening technology transfer, innovation and private sector engagement (window B).

This publication explains the two funding windows and details two SCCF climate adaptation projects.
