PNG urged to quickly access climate fund

GCF is the financial mechanism for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), aimed to fund programs towards low carbon emissions.

Its objective is to combat global climate change on both the adaptation and mitigation fronts.

Asian Development Bank (ADB) Pacific department senior natural resource management specialist, Jay Roop, says ADB has identified a small number of projects in PNG. 

ADB is among 10 GCF accredited entities working in PNG and the Pacific region, assisting to submit project and program proposals for climate funding.
