Information about the Intra-ACP GCCA Programme

Through a dedicated Climate Support Facility (CSF), the Intra-ACP Programme provides services aimed to support ACP national and regional institutions, government agencies, NGOs, CSOs, Universities and the private sector in ACP countries on the design and implementation of climate-relevant policies, strategies or interventions.

The technical assistance should contribute to an ongoing programme or project at the national or regional level. The result should be a tangible step forward in that programme or project.

Expertise is available to help with:

  • Feasibility studies, project identification or formulation

  • Technical advice
  • Capacity building, Trainings, Workshops
  • Curriculum development

Training can be on a number of thematic areas including climate change mainstreaming and climate financing.
