Global Environment Facility Provides $25M to Respond to Climate Issues in Mozambique

The Global Environment Facility (GEF) made available on Monday, March 20, an amount of $25 million to respond to climate problems that have affected the country in recent times.

Speaking on the sidelines of a workshop on “Climate Change” held in Maputo, the Acting Director of Policy, Partnerships and Operations at GEF, Paola Ridolfi, said that the amount allocated will be used over the next four years, in areas defined by the United Nations Convention on Environment, Diversity and Climate.

According to the source, the funds will also serve to respond to the problems of climate, biodiversity, land management and pollution in Mozambique.

The workshop brought together about 100 representatives from ten countries in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region to discuss opportunities and strategies on how to act on environmental priorities related to biodiversity loss, climate change, pollution, land health, and others.

At the meeting, participants had the opportunity to engage in capacity building on developing proposals and programs that can address local and regional climate resilience needs, including initiatives that include engagement with the local private sector.

The GEF was introduced at the Paris meeting in November 1990 as a pilot program to assist developing countries in implementing projects that would seek solutions to global concerns regarding ecosystem protection and biodiversity.
