Zambia gets its hands on a first climate adaptation grant

Through the Ministry of Green Economy and Environment, the Government of the Republic of Zambia has obtained a Readiness Package Grant of $145,000 from the Adaptation Fund.

The grant will facilitate the accreditation of Zambia Industrial Commercial Bank (ZICB) to the Adaptation Fund. The grant will also help strengthen the capacity to access climate adaptation finance and the overall capacity to develop and initiate the implementation of concrete projects and programmes that increase the resilience of vulnerable communities to the impacts of climate change.
