Climate change is the most prominent threat the world is facing, and it is having a severe impact on all aspects of life on this planet. Like all countries, the State of Palestine will be hit hard by climate change. Indeed, signs of the impact are already evident, well defined, and clearly observed. The Environment Quality Authority has coordinated preparation of this Green Climate Fund National Country Programme with the aim of scaling up national adaptation and mitigation projects. This has been done with guidance and support from the Fund. The main objective is to communicate and share with the Fund’s Secretariat the most pressing climate issues facing the State of Palestine. This Country Programme is focused on large-scale projects and those that fall under a range of Green Climate Fund support mechanisms, namely: the Simplified Approval Process; the National Adaptation Plans Support process; and the Green Climate Fund Readiness Support process.
