  1. 1. Climate Negotiation & Climate Finance, through a Closer Dialogue Mohammed Sadeck Boulahya, Team Leader,ClimaSouth Project With Contribution from all the three experts of the ClimaSouth Project Team
  2. 2. Challenges faced by the Project • The very diverse and large range of stakeholders facing various background objectives and agendas. • Similarities with other projects of the same nature by other bilateral-multilateral agencies such as UNDP, GIZ, World Bank…. • Limited coordination between such initiatives. • The beneficiary countries find themselves in a situation of redundant queries and solicitations that create a level of confusion or frustration. Hence the need to promote closer dialogues,facilitate access to Information and mobilize additional resources for the activities at the country level. The final objective being : « Improving the capacity of policy makers to engage in & implement the global climate change framework through a wise(optimum) integration of climate resilience and low carbon development»
  3. 3. Results to be achieved • Synergy between adaptation (climate resilience) & mitigation (low carbon development) with additional financial resources.(R1.2 & R.5.1) • Enhance capacity of countries in climate negotiations.( R1.1) • Coordination and complementarity with relevant programmes.(R5.2) • Increase awareness and negotiation capacities of the decision-makers and key stakeholders in the region on the post-2012 climate agenda regarding financial Mechanism.(R4.1 & R4.2)

  5. 5. WorkPlan (P4) Climate Finance Mechanisms  Year one , no training activity but the training programme & the relevent partners will be identified & approached.  List of potential partners : • UNEP financial institution (UNEP-FI) • Climate Investment Funds (CIFs) • European Investment Bank (EIB-FEMIP) • African Development Bank • National Development Banks • UNFCC Climate Funds
  6. 6. WorkPlan (P5,R5.1,R5.2) Closer Dialogue & Coordination Result 5.1 : • Activities planned to improve the quality of the dialogue within the ENPI South Countries, and for Year 1 : • Oct. /Nov. 2013 , before & during Cop 19 in Warsaw (P1 & 5) Result 5. 2- Activity 5.2.1 : • Donor coordination will be achieved on the basis of the tool mentioned in Section 2.1 which will serve as a communication tool & disseminated using the website developed under activity A5.3.1

  8. 8. Recommendations For Next Steps • Make the best use of CoP 19 (Novembre 2013) and the following ones and a few global workshops & conferences; • With the objective to demonstrate the economic, social and environmental benefits of implementing a national low emission development strategy. With the help of practical examples in particular from the Neighbourhood South (MENA) region, presentations will be made pointing out key lessons learnt in preparing successful strategies, and demonstrating its benefits for the national economy but also the benefits and interconnections with building resilience.
  9. 9. Country Pilote Project: Israel a) Title: National Inventory Report capacity building pilot project. b) Deliverable: Capacity to produce NIRs & National Communication on a routine basis starting 2014. c) Present situation : no mechanism to produce the above mentioned reports. d) Capacity building needs : training & research through workshops & technical assistance. e) Potential followup & sustainability: organise regular reviews of reports for improvment
  10. 10. Country Pilote Project: Libya Capacity building for the national climate change committee (NCCC -Libya). • The national climate change committee has just been revised and revived, 2 members have been invited to the PSC-1 and would give more details as they have been discussing the contribution and needs of Libya last week. This CPP-Libya will contribute to Activity A.1.2.1 (capacity development for climate change mainstreaming)
  11. 11. Country Pilote Project: Palestine • Capacity building for climate action. • This capacity building will be carried in order to enable the Palestinian Authority to: i) implement in a near future its first national communication, ii) Improve its management of the CC issue both at the nationally and internationally levels (increase its participation to the UNFCCC negotiations). • It aims to train in climate actions (mitigation, adaptation, mainstreaming, finance, etc.) more staff to enable Palestine to make best use of partners supports and fully implement the different projects related to environment, energy, and CC.
  12. 12. Specifics and Timing for Purposes P1, P4 and P5 (R5.1&R5.2) Their Implementation need to build on the successful launch and first practical and demonstrative results of Pilot Projects and training initiatives in Adaptation and Mitigation for Climate Resilience Societies supported by Low Carbon Economies. Let us Brainstorm for the progressive integration !!!
