Climate change is a growing major threat to human and natural systems on our planet. The world must focus on scaling up climate mitigation action that minimizes trade-offs and maximizes synergies with other government economic and development priorities, including protecting nature and promoting an equitable post-pandemic recovery. In this context, the GEF is very well positioned to help accelerate action standing on three decades of experience in the provision of climate financing.
Climate change poses a growing threat to all human and natural systems on our planet. International efforts are intensifying to prepare for rising seas, higher temperatures, worsening droughts, frequent floods, and other impacts that can affect water resources, crop yields, and the health of people and ecosystems. Adaptation measures are urgently needed in vulnerable developing countries to safeguard development gains and support resilient growth.
The Global Environment Facility is the largest and most experienced multilateral fund dedicated to addressing climate change and threats to nature around the world. The two climate change adaptation funds it manages - the Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF) and Special Climate Change Fund (SCCF) - are uniquely focused on helping vulnerable countries prepare for and cope with the impacts of a warming planet.
