Title: Gender and GEF Climate Change Adaptation Funds


1
Gender and GEF Climate Change Adaptation Funds
  • Gender and Climate Change Finance Workshop
  • New York City, 19 Nov 2008
  • Yoko Watanabe, Program Manager, GEF

2
Topics
  • Gender Mainstreaming at the GEF
  • GEF Financing for Adaptation to Climate Change

3
About the GEF
  • A financial mechanism established to protect the
    global environment and promote sustainable
    development.
  • GEF supports developing countries and economies
    in transition on incremental cost of actions to
    protect the global environment.
  • Financial mechanism for the CBD, UNFCCC, UNCCD,
    and POPs.
  • Six Focal Areas Biodiversity, Climate Change.
    Intl Waters, Land Degradation, Ozone, POPs.

4
Why Gender Mainstreaming Matters for GEF
  • Addressing gender in GEFs environmental project
    is crucial for overall project success, both for
    achieving environmental goals and contributing
    for gender equality.
  • The relevance of gender to environmental issues
    Rio Summit, Beijing Conference on Women,
    Conventions, and MDGs.
  • Take into account womens and mens needs, roles,
    and interests in every step of the GEF project
    cycle.

5
GEF Policy and Strategy
  • GEF Public Involvement Policy
  • Approved in 1996.
  • Stakeholder participation in every step of
    project cycle, notably women.
  • GEF Focal Area Strategy
  • Gender blind
  • GEF Agencies Gender Policy and Strategy
  • Applies to GEF projects.
  • Strengthened policies and strategies.
  • Mixed track records.
  • GEF related Conventions Approach on Gender
  • CBD, UNFCCC, UNCCD, POPs
  • Guidance from the Conference of the Parties (COP)
    CBD only.

6
GEF Portfolio Review
  • Reviewed total of 172 projects approved and
    implemented during 2003-2006.
  • 40 of projects included some kind of gender
    mainstreaming action (based on six gender
    mainstreaming criteria).
  • 18 conducted gender analysis to design project.
  • 21 involved project activities, outcomes,
    and/or components specifically targeted women,
    and some cases men to address gender dimension.

7
Future Directions and Next Steps
  • GEF is committed to strengthen gender
    mainstreaming in GEF projects.
  • Next Steps
  • Articulate a vision prepare a guidance paper or
    plan of action.
  • Incorporate gender in focal area strategies and
    strategic programs.
  • Strengthen institutional framework.
  • Capacity development among staff.
  • Pay increased attention on socio-economic aspects
    during project review.
  • Incorporate gender as elements for review under
    ME exercises.
  • Ensure appropriate funding to address gender
    issues.
  • Establish and strengthen networks and partners

GEF Funding for Adaptation to Climate Change
9
Background on the GEF and Adaptation
  • GEF finances both climate change mitigation and
    adaptation
  • Four funding sources for Adaptation under the GEF

GEF Assistance to Address Adaptation
GEF Trust Fund
UNFCCC climate change funds
Kyoto Adaptation Fund
GEF Trust Fund Strategic Priority on Adaptation
(SPA) adaptation action with GEBs
Least Developed Country Fund (LDCF) (implementatio
n of NAPAs) NO GLOBAL BENEFITS
Special Climate Change Fund (SCCF) Top priority
to Adaptation NO GLOBAL BENEFITS
Adaptation Fund (AF) Adaptation in KP developing
I parties NO GLOBAL BENEFITS
Total 180M
Total 90M
Total 50M
Estimate 80-300 million/year
10
Piloting an Operational Approach to Adaptation
(SPA)
  • SPA Projects should primarily target Global
    Environmental Benefits under the GEF focal areas,
    whereas the other GEF administered funds have
    development as their primary focus.
  • 50 million allocation ? as of October 2008 all
    funds have been allocated ? following an internal
    evaluation of the pilot, the program will evolve.
  • A total of 21 adaptation projects have been
    approved for support through the SPA.

11
Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF)
  • LDCF projects support the implementation of
    National Adaptation Plans of Action (NAPAs) which
    identifies urgent and immediate adaptation
    needs in each LDC.
  • The LDCF has so far supported the preparation of
    NAPAs in 47 LDCs and will also support
    implementation of priority actions identified in
    completed NAPAs.
  • As of October 2008, 38 NAPAs have been completed,
    and 19 implementation projects have been approved
    for LDCF funding.
  • Existing resources, including new pledges 180
    million ? applying a principle of equal access
    this translates into roughly 3.7 million pr.
    country.

12
Special Climate Change Fund (SCCF)
  • SCCF adaptation projects support the
    implementation of adaptation actions in non-annex
    I parties.
  • Priority areas water, land management,
    agriculture, health, infrastructure development,
    fragile ecosystems, integrated coastal zone
    management, disaster risk management and
    prevention
  • Total resources under the SCCF program for
    adaptation, including new pledges 90 million.
  • Demand greatly exceeds available funding, forcing
    a temporary freeze for new SCCF projects.
  • As of October 2008, 15 projects have been
    approved for support under the SCCF. Future
    funding opportunities depend on donor
    contribution.

13
Adaptation Fund (AF)
  • AF will support adaptation projects in
    developing countries.
  • To be funded by 2 levy on Clean Development
    Mechanism (CDM) projects and voluntary donor
    contributions.
  • Details regarding priority sectors, eligibility
    criteria and administrative processing of AF
    projects, will be determined during upcoming
    Adaptation Fund Board meetings.
  • Unlike the other GEF administered funds for
    adaptation, eligible countries will be able to
    access funds directly without having to go
    through an implementing agency.
  • UNFCCC estimate of available funding for period
    2008-2012 80-300 million/year.

14
Draft Operational Policies and Guidelines on the
Adaptation Fund
  • Direct access to eligible parties
  • Draft type of Activities to be financed
  • water , land, agriculture, health,
    infrastructure, fragile ecosystems, integrated
    coastal zone management, others
  • Draft proposal to have different modalities
  • Small-scale community-based adaptation projects
  • Regular projects to finance medium-size to
    large-scale adaptation investments
