The Ministry of Economic Development, the national designated authority to the Green Climate Fund on Monday began a three-day workshop to conduct Belize’s Second Structured Dialogue to validate the Country Programme for engagement with the GCF. The virtual event, which ends tomorrow, is being presented in partnership with the 5C’s and is a follow-up to the first national dialogue held in October last year. It is expected that the Ministry will validate the updated Country Programme and its proposed pipeline of projects as well as a proposed procedure for continuously updating the Programme. Belize’s Country Programme for engagement with the fund is a document that guides the country’s investment priorities and readiness support requests by translating national climate change priorities into a pipeline of fundable projects and programmes, prioritized by national stakeholders and the Government of Belize. When this is all said and done, Belize will have developed a robust pipeline of projects and programmes for submission to the fund, as well as a clear roadmap for investment priorities to tackle climate change. Belize has maintained a relationship with the GCF, the largest fund dedicated to climate change in the world, since 2015.
