This project supports projects in the Canada-African Development Bank Climate Fund (CACF) pipeline to address the technical complexity, coordination requirements and reporting obligations related to climate finance operations. Specifically, the Technical Assistance Facility provides grants to eligible CACF projects in order to: (1) address the specific costs and risks related to project preparation; (2) increase the potential for achieving optimal results on key areas, such as gender and human rights, during project origination, implementation and supervision; and (3) enhance knowledge management, monitoring, evaluation, and learning from CACF activities.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) reduction of greenhouse gas emissions; (2) enhanced resilience of local communities in Africa to cope with climate change; and (3) enhanced participation by women in climate mitigation and adaptation-relevant sector or activities.
