Climate Change Fund

Through the NEPAD Climate Change Fund, the NEPAD Agency aims to strengthen the resilience of African countries to climate change by building national, sub-regional and continental capacity. Established in 2014 by the NEPAD Agency with support from the Government of Germany, the Fund offers technical and financial assistance to AU Member States, Regional Economic Communities and institutions that meet the eligibility criteria and clearly defined targeted areas of support of the fund. 

The Fund also supports projects on knowledge and capacity development for better planning, coordination, and implementation of climate change activities. Target areas of the fund include, adaptation of agriculture to climate change, biodiversity; access and benefit sharing, development and implementation support to National Adaptation Plans (NAPs), and mainstreaming of climate change into the National Agricultural Investment Plans (NAIP).
