It aims to enhance knowledge on carbon finance and facilitate the integration of small-scale farmers into AFOLU mitigation activities. The participation of these farmers allows them to be involved in the development and implementation of the project, influence its design to generate positive impacts for the farmers and increase their knowledge about climate change mitigation and carbon finance.

Direct Access to Climate Finance: Experiences and lessons learned (UNDP/ODI)

This paper provides an overview of the concept of direct access to funding for climate change actions in developing countries.
