Project Description
The objective of this pilot project is to support Sub-Saharan African (SSA) member countries in scaling-up the deployment of low-carbon and climate resilient technologies for climate change mitigation and adaptation by: (1) enhancing networking and knowledge dissemination with respect to climate technology transfer and financing; (2) enabling the scaling-up of technology transfer through policy, institutional and organizational reforms of the country and regional enabling environments; and (3) integrating climate change technologies into investment programs and projects. As a pilot project, the activities focus on the energy sector for climate change mitigation measures, and on the water sector for adaptation measures. This project is part of a GEF initiative to establish regional climate technology and finance centers with the regional multilateral development banks. It is financed by set aside funds from the GEF trust fund (GEFTF) and the Special Climate Change Fund (SCCF). In that context, the Bank will implement the project through the execution of a grant of USD 9.09 million from GEFTF and USD 5.25 million from SCCF. The Bank is expected to contribute through its administrative budget to the project management costs.
