Main project features:

The project piloted replicable climate finance models that contributed to NDC goals. It established links between UNFCCC mechanisms and climate finance institutions of the UNFCCC Financial Mechanism (such as the GCF), particularly where canceling emission reduction certificates was used as evidence of results-based climate finance.
The partner countries (Ethiopia, Senegal, Uganda) were characterized by ambition, regional lighthouse effects, climate policy relevance and strong networks. In all countries, the project was working with governments and the private sector to formulate climate finance proposals that leverage the potential of existing activities. This mobilized measures that had great development impact on local communities.
The project aimed to strengthen the preconditions for ambitious climate policy through the strengthening of national and regional capacities as well as conceptual work. Furthermore, lessons learned were included in climate negotiations and public debate, and contributed to the design of PA policy instruments. Cooperation with African climate negotiators aimed to strengthen their influence in the UNFCCC process.

Project Overview

Perspectives led the overall assignment in terms of administration and content work. Perspectives led and coordinated the deliverables for all four work packages:
1. The elaboration of the technical documents of climate finance proposals in all three partner countries while building national capacity in accessing climate finance
2. Technical support to (sub)regional initiatives and fostering of regional peer-to-peer learning with the organisation of subregional and regional workshops
3. Conceptual work with the elaboration and publication of policy briefs and guidebooks for practitioners and decision makers as well as the development of methodologies for measuring emission reductions
4. Negotiation support and outreach as well as expert contributions to the public debate on market mechanisms and climate finance.
5. South-South dialogue on Article 6 readiness to foster cooperation on carbon markets and climate finance between Africa and the Caribbean.
Furthermore, Perspectives was responsible for the coordination with political partners, as well as coordination and quality control of the subcontractors.
