The Green Climate Fund has approved over $80 million for three new climate change adaptation projects.
Earlier in 2018, the Green Climate Fund announced funding worth $1 billion for climate adaptation projects. The interagency partnerships led by the United Nations Development Programme will support programmes in Bangladesh, Georgia and Zambia. In total, the projects will catalyse over $239 million towards climate resilience.
Pradeep Kurukulasuriya, the Head of Climate Change Adaptation, UNDP noted: “The approved projects touch on issues related to food security, access to water, and resilient infrastructure,”
