Hosted by the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) of Kenya and supported by the Heinrich Boell Foundation, Adaptation Fund and the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN).

For the first time in Africa, this workshop will bring together accredited implementing entities of the Adaptation Fund on the continent and African institutions that wish to gain accreditation from the Adaptation Fund Board.

The workshop will address common obstacles that African National, Multilateral and Regional Implementing Entities face during the accreditation process and implementation of projects, as well as the opportunities, strategies and insights for effective use of funds disbursed from the Adaptation Fund.

This meeting seeks to build a community of practice at the Adaptation Fund operations level, where learning and open dialogue can help build confidence and capacity at national level and enhance ownership of fund processes and project implementation.

It will also provide a very useful forum for formulating a regional voice to inform ongoing developments in the international climate finance architecture such as the Green Climate Fund.

The workshop is hosted by the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) of Kenya, and supported by the Heinrich Boell Foundation, Adaptation Fund and the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN).
