Access to Climate Finance

OSS is accredited as a regional implementing entity by the Adaptation Fund since 2013 and by the Green Climate Fund in October 2017. It accordingly provides its member countries and partners with technical and institutional support for the development of project proposals in relation with climate change adaptation and mitigation. Funded by the Adaptation Fund and implemented by OSS for the benefit of Uganda, the EURECCA project is a perfect outcome of this process.

OSS also helps and accompanies countries/institutions (Tunisia and Libya for the time being and probably Guinea Bissau & Uganda soon) in preparing to climate finance as a part of the GCF Readiness and Preparatory Support Program.
