The Birdlife South Africa and South South North organisations in South Africa have been selected to implement two projects. The main goals are to support ecosystem-based adaptation and financing for livestock farmers within South Africa’s threatened grasslands as well as innovative access modality for the Green Climate Fund.

Two other projects in Mozambique by the World Wide Fund for Nature and the Institute of International Economic Cooperation will help to “unlock blended finance and youth/women entrepreneurs for resilient blue-green (or coastal) growth in Mozambique” and promote “syntrophic agriculture as a strategy to foster resilience, climate adaptation and recovery of vulnerable communities living in degraded marine and coastal ecosystems in Zambezia.”

The project in Malawi will be executed out by the Climate Change and Green Growth Department of the African Development Bank contributing to the “demonstration of an innovative results-based finance model for adaptation to climate change.”

This is not the first time for the Africa Climate Change Fund to receive a grant from the Government of Flanders. In 2016, they already granted €2 million.
