in Doha (Qatar)
Organised byEuropean Commission – Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA)

Through the GCCA and geographical programmes, the EU provides assistance for
climate change across the world with a special focus on LDCs and SIDs.

The EU is thriving to make climate change support effective, helping
government partners to integrate climate change into national development
planning and budgeting and piloting budget support. In doing so, it ensures
full alignment with country's strategies and systems and long-term
institutional strengthening. Through this focus, the EU is also helping
countries increasing their absorptive capacities and preparing to receive
long-term climate change finance, paving the way for long-term climate
compatible development. It also serves as catalyst to further integrate
climate change into EU regular development aid, thereby creating a multiplier

As the future of the GCCA is being shaped, the side event will bring to the
table voices from developing countries on early results, lessons learned and
priorities for the next years.
