The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN), as part of its technical assistance in Guinea, organized an event on mobilizing financial resources for deploying adaptation technologies. The event gathered donors and five teams with different project ideas selected by the CTCN Network member Group for the Environment, Renewable Energy and Solidarity (GERES). The teams had the occasion to liaise directly with bilateral donors and present different concepts.
Donors (from the European Commission, Japan International Cooperation Agency, French Development Agency and the Embassy of Japan) demonstrated strong interest in presented projects; representatives from the Ministry of Environment joined the discussions with the teams as well.
It is expected, that this CTCN technical assistance will increase knowledge and capacities to attract investors and donors to fund projects; as well as to increase the number of initiatives funded to deploy and scale up climate technologies for adaptation.
