The GCCA Intra-ACP programme supports members of the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) to tackle climate change as a challenge to their development. We work towards this goal by offering technical assistance, promoting knowledge sharing, initiating regional dialogue, and facilitating regional partnership on climate change issues.
Several actors collaborate to implement the GCCA Intra-ACP programme. This includes a Technical Assistance to the ACP Secretariat team, who facilitate dialogue, knowledge sharing, and access to technical support; the Climate Support Facility (CSF), which makes funding available for technical assistance; and Regional Partners who, partly supported by the programme, carry out projects and programmes related to climate change. The Technical Assistance team is located at the ACP Secretariat in Brussels, Belgium, and the Regional Partners are located in their respective ACP Regions.
