Benin is one of the world’s most vulnerable countries to climate change with low levels of readiness and adaptive capacity. Climate change has already been felt in the country in recent decades, with increases in temperature, frequency and intensity of droughts and floods.
To address these challenges, the project proposes to empower local governments and their communities to increase their capability of making adaptation measures and increase the share of climate-compatible investments at the local level through scaling up the existing “Local climate Adaptive Living Facility (LoCAL) initiative launched by Benin and the United Nations Capital Development Fund in 2014. The project will focus strengthening local climate governance to enable local stakeholders to take climate adaptation into consideration in its development planning. The project will give local level access to climate finance to increase adaptation investments in key climate sensitive sectors to address the financial gap between existing and needed adaptation measures.

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.
