Building agile institutions and resilient communities
This Reflect & Act looks at the action-research programme Devolved Climate Finance, which is piloting an innovative devolved finance and planning mechanism devised to channel global climate funds to vulnerable communities. Pilots are taking place in Kenya, Tanzania, Mali and Senegal through an alliance of NGOs and government institutions. The approach builds financial, planning, and project management capabilities at local government and community level. It establishes inclusive structures within existing governance frameworks to ensure that investments in public goods for climate adaptation are identified and prioritised by local communities, and strengthen their resilience.
