Project Description

The AMCC+, also known by its English acronyme GCCA+, is the European Union’s flagship initiative to help the most vulnerable countries face the challenge of climate change. Launched in 2008, it provides special support to developing and fragile island states to strengthen their resilience to the effects of climate change.

The GCCA+ is a global initiative implemented by the Secretariat of the Organization of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OEACP), based in Brussels (77 developing states), with funding from the European Union. It has a total budget of 735.5 million euros for the 2008-2020 period, including 420 million for the second phase running from 2014 to 2020.

In December 2019, the IOC signed a contract with the OEACP Secretariat to implement a project to build capacity to negotiate and implement commitments to the Paris Climate Agreement. This project is a sub-regional component of GCCA+. It receives funding of 1.6 million euros from the 11th European Development Fund. Activities will be implemented over a 4-year period.
