The Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA) is an initiative of the European Union to strengthen dialogue and cooperation on climate change with developing countries most vulnerable to climate change. The GCCA focuses on the Least Developed Countries and the Small Island Developing States, which are often the most affected by climate change but have the fewest resources to tackle it. What sets the GCCA apart is its emphasis on innovative and effective approaches to delivering climate change support and addressing the capacity needs of partner countries. This commitment translates into a range of delivery methods and approaches, such as sector policy support programmes, climate change mainstreaming and budget support, ensuring full alignment with developing countries’ agendas, the use of country systems and long-term capacity building, ownership, and sustainability. With help from the GCCA, partner countries are implementing climate change programmes on the ground, integrating climate change into national and sector strategies, reducing deforestation and disaster risks, and promoting adaptive agriculture and clean energy. From 2008 to 2011, the GCCA has contributed over €200 million in support of more than 30 country and regional programmes in the Caribbean, Africa, Asia and the Pacific. An additional 11 countries and regions are expected to benefit from the GCCA in 2012 and 2013. This publication shows examples of the GCCA’s wide-ranging programme and provides some early results and lessons learned.
