The UNDP Iraq Country Office, with funding from the GCF, is supporting the Government of Iraq by implementing the project 'NDA strengthening in Iraq for climate finance programming, governance, regional cooperation and knowledge generation'.
The project's focus is to strengthen the NDA's capacity and ensure access to GCF funds and support to national organizations seeking accreditation at GCF. The project will enable the Government of Iraq to strengthen the capacities of the newly assigned NDA to institutionalize climate action coordination mechanisms; establish/build the capacity of direct access entities; enhance climate finance programming for national/regional greenhouse gas mitigation measures; mainstream information on paradigm shifts/transformation into country programming; and develop the capacity to identify and develop proposals on green growth investments. The beneficiaries of the readiness proposal are the NDA, related ministries/authorities, the private sector, and candidates for GCF accreditation. Low private sector engagement in the GFC process in Iraq is one of the main barriers that will be addressed by building capacity within the NDA to support bankable green growth proposals, development of strategic priorities, and identification and training of strong national agencies candidates for GCF accreditation.
