According to the submitted proposal to the Green Climate Fund, this project seeks to stengthen institutional capacities and increase the resilience of at least 5% of the population in the pilot countries using an Enhanced Direct Access (EDA) system. It will specifically address prevelant barriers to climate change adaptation; the barriers are: 1. adaptation that leaves no one behind, 2. financing for adaptation in public, private, and civil society sectors, and 3. high per capita losses and costs of climate recovery.
The outputs of the project are:
Number of people directly affected by specific components of the project:
Revolving fund loan agreements Grant reports and grant agreements: 13,200 direct beneficiaries
Number of males and females benefiting from the adoption of diversified, climate – resilient livelihood options: 15,650 males & 15,650 females
Government co-financing: US$6.0 million
Civil society organisations: US$1.5 million
Private sector (households, micro-, small, and medium enterprises): US$11.0 million
As of the time of writing, the project proposal is not clear about the exact sources of the US$18.5 million in co-financing which rely on the Green Climate Fund participating in the project.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF GREEN CLIMATE FUND
The Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) addresses complaints by people who believe they are negatively affected or may be affected by projects or programmes funded by the Green Climate Fund (GCF). The complainant can raise issues related to any of GCF’s policies and procedures, including those relating to social and environmental issues, indigenous peoples, gender, and information disclosure, among others. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may seek to address the issues raised by facilitating problem solving or conducting a compliance process. You can learn more about the Independent Redress Mechanism and how to file a complaint at https://irm.greenclimate.fund/.
