African countries converge for first Regional
Learning Forum on climate finance in Namibia

WINDHOEK (Xinhua) -- Namibia will host six southern African countries to share learnings on accessing climate finance from Thursday to Friday in the coastal town of Swakopmund.

Namibia’s Environmental Investment Fund’s Lazarus Nafidi Wednesday said more than 40 representatives from six southern African countries will meet in what will be the first of two Regional Learning Forums on climate finance in southern Africa.

“The participants will represent the National Designated Authorities of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and the accredited entities to the GCF located in each of the six countries,” he added.

The forum is convened by SouthSouthNorth (SSN) under the Southern Africa Climate Finance Partnership Project, and is co-hosted by Namibia’s Ministry of Environment, in partnership with Namibia’s Environmental Investment Fund.

SSN supports national and regional responses to climate change through policy and knowledge interventions, partnerships and deep collaboration.

Nafidi said the project seeks to promote learning and sharing across six focus countries (Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe) in response to the challenges faced by countries seeking to access the GCF.

According to Nafidi, the results of the forum will inform a series of vital regional discussions on climate finance access for the six focus countries, which will culminate in a second forum scheduled to take place during the first half of 2019.
