Seychelles Water & Sanitation (EIB)

Seychelles is suffering from water scarcity due to the concentration of rainfall in a short period within each year, its variability across different years, little groundwater availability and limited opportunities to expand storage capacity necessary to transfer water resources from the wet to the dry season. Therefore, the water supply system is highly vulnerable to meteorological conditions, which may be aggravated by greater rainfall variability linked with global climate variations. The underinvestment in water supply infrastructure has generated a decline in water service quality and in the efficiency of their provision, with high water losses and energy consumption. Sewage collection and treatment facilities are also very limited, posing a high threat to both public health and the environment.

The project consists of four parts:

  1. Renewal and expansion of the water supply systems on the 3 main islands of Seychelles to cover water deficits, improve water and energy efficiency and increase resilience to climate variation;
  2. Upgrading of the existing sewerage system on Mahé island, and the creation of new sanitation facilities on La Digue island to reduce the risk of contamination of groundwater used for the production of potable water;
  3. Implementation of water demand and resource management programmes including environmental and natural disaster risk management;
  4. Capacity building of the promoter through technical assistance and the provision of tools to implement and operate efficiently the water and sanitation facilities.

NCF Case Study: Environmental Protection Fund in Lao PDR (UNDP)

This paper aims to enrich knowledge sharing about the establishment and management of national climate funds (NCFs), which is organized by the Asia-Pacific Community of Practice on Climate Finance. It reports the lessons learned extracted from the establishment and management of the Lao Environmental Protection Fund (EPF), which is one of seven national funds across the Asia-Pacific region selected as a case study.

NCF Case Study: China Clean Development Mechanism Fund (UNDP)

This paper aims to enrich knowledge sharing about the establishment and management of national climate funds (NCFs), which is organized by the Asia-Pacific Community of Practice on Climate Finance. It reports the lessons learned extracted from the establishment and management of the China Clean Development Mechanism Fund (CCDMF), which is one of seven national funds across the Asia-Pacific region selected as a case study.

NCF Case Study: Cambodia Climate Change Alliance Trust Fund (UNDP)

This paper aims to enrich knowledge sharing about the establishment and management of national climate funds (NCFs), which is organized by the Asia-Pacific Community of Practice on Climate Finance. It reports the lessons learned extracted from the establishment and management of the Cambodia Climate Change Alliance (CCCA) Trust Fund, which is one of seven national funds across the Asia-Pacific region selected as a case study.

NCF Case Study: Bhutan Trust Fund for Environmental Conservation (UNDP)

This paper aims to enrich knowledge sharing about the establishment and management of national climate funds (NCFs), which is organized by the Asia-Pacific Community of Practice on Climate Finance. It reports the lessons learned extracted from the establishment and management of the Bhutan Trust Fund for Environmental Conservation (BTFEC), which is one of seven national funds across the Asia-Pacific region selected as a case study.

National Climate Funds: Learning from the experience of Asia-Pacific countries (UNDP)

The paper proposes a set of feasibility criteria to assist decision makers to make an informed decision and assess whether an NCF is a feasible option for a country. It also presents important design and management features of NCFs.

Global Landscape of Climate Finance 2012 (CPI)

The Global Landscape of Climate Finance 2012 identifies global climate finance flows of USD 364 billion in 2011. The private sector provided the majority of finance, mostly from developed countries. The public sector acted as a catalyst for private investment by providing incentives and concessional loans, as well as bilateral aid to developing countries. Public and private intermediaries, especially national development banks and commercial banks, played an important role in channeling as well as raising climate 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. It focuses on the institutional arrangements that are necessary to facilitate and support direct access and is intended to inform the current and future discussions on direct access modalities, including within the design process for the Green Climate Fund (GCF). The paper begins by looking at what the term ‘direct access’ implies, what it is seeking to achieve, and how it has been defined to-date.

Improving the Effectiveness of Climate Finance: Key lessons (EDF)

This paper (PDF) presents an overview of existing practices by summarizing the findings from an extensive survey of various institutions, drawing on the lessons learned from development finance, the public and private activities of international financial institutions and experience with market-based instruments. The paper mainly focuses on mitigation, and it seeks to discern lessons for policymakers by addressing two key questions: What makes climate finance effective? and what tools, methods or systems might improve the effectiveness of climate finance?
