Unlocking Private Sector Involvement in the Green Climate Fund Projects in South Africa – Phase 2 Launch
Tuesday, 3 November 2020 10:30 to 12:30
The National Business Initiative (NBI) and the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) are hosting the Phase 2 Launch of Unlocking Private Sector Involvement in the Green Climate Fund Projects in South Africa.
This NBI-SANBI collaboration is designed to help identify areas of vulnerability, areas where our companies are working on adaptation projects already and where, through collaboration, we can scale up these projects to enhance impact and to attract climate finance; providing an opportunity for the private sector to define the role that business can play in South Africa’s GCF projects.
Phase 2 of this SANBI-NBI partnership aims to identify specific projects that can contribute towards a national pipeline of adaptation, biodiversity and ecosystem-based adaptation actions to alleviate the acute shortage of adaption projects locally; and to attract up to US$50 million from the Green Climate Fund (GCF).
Phase 1 convened business in a series of rich capacity building sessions covering the latest information on a range of biodiversity, climate resilience, adaptation finance and ecosystem-based adaptation topics. A recording of each of the four capacity building events is available on the NBI’s YouTube channel and can be accessedhere. Phase 3 will shortlist to a few high promise projects with which we can approach the GCF.
