The Adaptation Fund’s Climate Finance Readiness seminar series continues with a seminar in Bangkok, Thailand, on Sept. 10-12 — the third seminar of its Readiness Programme for Climate Finance. The Programme is designed to strengthen the effective and fully-operational direct access climate finance model the Fund has pioneered. This seminar, co-sponsored by UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme) and supported by CDKN, is a three-day gathering convening stakeholders for dynamic and in-depth discussions focusing on increasing the capacity of applicant and accredited implementing entities.
