 The Adaptation Fund has recently been working with the Solomon Islands to enhance its agricultural and food security and has endorsed future work with Fiji, Papua New Guinea and the Cook Islands. The Adaptation Fund was designed to finance adaptation projects and programs in developing countries that are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change, including Pakistan. Funding to these initiatives is to flow over financial years 2011-12 and 2012-13. A number of African countries are also receiving support through the Adaptation Fund including Eritrea and Senegal.Australia Adaptation Fund Adaptation 15.000AUDUpdate 2011

 Investments are primarily made via regional adaptation funding. A$16.5 million fast-start funding (of a total A$17.5 million commitment) has been allocated, and adaptation projects are currently being programmed. These projects focus on supporting regional partners and communities in the Caribbean to address vulnerabilities associated with climate change, and to assist in natural disaster preparation and response planning. This includes an allocation of A$2.3 million to Caribsave, the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre and the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency, for activities that will improve the capacity of Caribbean countries to reduce their vulnerability and enhance their resilience to natural disasters.AustraliaCaribbean  Adaptation 16.500AUDUpdate 2011

  Energising Development partnership: Australia is supporting the Energising Development partnership (EnDev) to develop sustainable markets for improved cooking technologies in developing countries including in Asia, Africa and Latin America. The unsustainable collection of fuel wood is an important driver of forest degradation. Australia’s support will promote sustainable cooking technologies as well as a better understanding of the relationship between fuel wood use and deforestation and forest degradation. In supporting the EnDev Partnership, Australia is helping to build an existing initiative that has a proven track record in delivering access to sustainable energy. The lead agency for implementing the Partnership is Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) which has a large and well established network in developing countries, ensuring that supported activities are responsive to regional and local as well as national needs.AustraliaAfrica Regional, Asia Regional, Latin America    20.000AUD2013

 Pacific Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning: One of three programs delivered under the International Climate Change Adaptation Initiative (ICCAI), the Pacific Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning program (PACCSAP) is building an adaptation science and research base to assist Pacific countries to better manage future climate risk. Following on from an earlier program, The Pacific Climate Change Science Program (PCCSP), which delivered research and country level climate change projections,5 the PACCSAP has continued to build the capacity of National Meteorological Services and the science base as well as delivering communication and awareness activities. Strengthening the adaptation science base allows partner countries in the Pacific to reliably identify national climate change priorities, integrate climate change considerations into decision-making, and understand the economic implications of future climate change impacts and adaptation measures. For example, developing damage and loss estimates for the Pacific region from future climate change cyclone projections will help national government better quantify economic risk and develop solutions.Australia     32.000AUD2013

Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Rwanda, Sao Tome and PrincipeCanada's $20 million contribution to the Congo Basin Forest Fund provides support for the implementation of sustainable forest management projects and the promotion of conservation and sustainable management. The Congo Basin in Central Africa is home to one-quarter of the world's tropical forests. This vast area is critical for regional and global ecological services as it acts as a carbon sink and catchment basin. The Congo Basin countries are the home to nearly 100 million people, of which some of the world's poorest people, many of whom depend on the forest for their livelihoods.CanadaCentral AfricaCongo Basin Forest Fund (CBFF)African Development Bank Multi-sector20.000CAD2012FY 2011/2012
