Country representatives and UNDP will present experience in designing innovative solutions to climate change impacts and transformative adaptation projects for the Green Climate Fund, in the context of the Paris agreement adaptation goals.
 
Lessons learned in accessing climate finance, through design/preparation of innovative and transformative projects, will be discussed together with a showcase of best practices from UNDP-GCF projects.
 
Some of the main questions to be covered:
- What can transformation and innovation mean in the context of GCF-UNDP adaptation building?
- How to reconcile development and adaptation needs of countries (development vs. climate change incrementality/additional costs due to climate change)?
- What are the modalities for financing adaptation projects and programmes (grant vs. non-grant instruments)?
- What are the lessons learned in preparation/design of transformative projects for the Green Climate Fund?
