Bamako: Morocco Takes Part in 2nd GCF Structured Dialogue with Africa
Bamako – Secretary of State for Sustainable Development, Nezha El Ouafi, is taking part in the second Green Climate Fund (GCF) Structured Dialogue with Africa, which opened Tuesday in Bamako.
The GCF Structured Dialogue with Africa, organized in collaboration with the Government of Mali, convenes key stakeholders, including ministers, senior government officials, civil society organizations and private sector representatives, to increase the involvement of African countries with the GCF and to accelerate the design and implementation of ambitious projects and programs that speak to countries’ climate action aspirations and to the GCF mandate.
The four-day gathering is an opportunity to facilitate exchanges and learning among countries and stakeholders to enhance the quality of the programming process and deliver strong outcomes, including high quality and impactful pipeline of proposals for the short, medium and long term.
The Green Climate Fund is a new global fund created to support the efforts of developing countries to respond to the challenge of climate change. GCF helps developing countries limit or reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adapt to climate change. It seeks to promote a paradigm shift to low-emission and climate-resilient development, taking into account the needs of nations that are particularly vulnerable to climate change impacts.
GCF is accountable to the United Nations. It is guided by the principles and provisions of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
