The Chair of the Climate Change Adaptation Fund on late Friday announced that the fund is currently accepting proposals, although it is yet to meet the demands of some 20 project documents awaiting financing at the fund. Addressing participants at a side event on the accreditation process for National Implementing Entities (NIEs), Farrukh Iqbal Khan expressed uncertainty about the fund’s ability to meet the demands for the 20 proposals saying it is still in a learning process. The Information and Communication Service of the Economic Commission for Africa quotes Mr. Khan as saying that the Adaptation Fund is the "first direct access climate funding project in the world, needing new ideas and new support”.
