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) is the independent complaint mechanism for a person or people who have been or believe they are likely to be adversely affected by a project or programme funded by the Green Climate Fund. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may seek to address the issues raised by facilitating a problem-solving dialogue or, if that is not possible, conducting an independent investigation into whether the GCF has complied with its environmental and social policies. The IRM is newly created and is still in the process of developing its procedures and website. More information about the IRM and how you can file a complaint is forthcoming. You can contact the IRM at email@example.com.
