About us

The UNDP-AFCIA program operates within the framework of the multi-partner platform known as the Adaptation Innovation Marketplace (AIM). Launched by UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner in 2021, this strategic platform is designed to advance scaled-up adaptation efforts at the local level, with a specific focus on civil society, non-governmental organizations, and innovative individuals from women and youth. The marketplace aggregates resources, expertise, and technical support to facilitate local access to climate change adaptation finance.

The UNDP AFCIA program is supported by financial contributions from the Adaptation Fund and the European Union. To date, it has granted 44 micro and small awards to locally-led organizations in 33 countries worldwide, accelerating their innovative solutions to enhance resilience in the most vulnerable communities.
