WHAT IS THE ADAPTATiON FUND ENHANCED DIRECT ACCESS INITIATIVE?
The Adaptation Fund’s Enhanced Direct Access (EDA) initiative aims to empower developing country recipients of international climate finance beyond what can be achieved through the Direct Access modality alone, by devolving decision-making in the programming of internationally allocated funds to the national and sub-national levels.
Enhanced Direct Access projects are determined at the country-level through specific requests and proposals made by local beneficiaries at the sub-national level. This offers opportunities for: piloting innovation built on bottom-up approaches through local knowledge and locally led action; generating additional knowledge for replication; and promoting the development of public private partnerships.
