A key output of the Climate Finance Innovators Project is to develop a Funding Proposal (FP) for the GCF to mobilise financing for the proposed activity “Climate-resilient community access to safe water powered by renewable energy in drought-vulnerable regions of Ethiopia”.
This activity seeks to strengthen rural climate resilience in Ethiopia through sustainable extraction of water from deep aquifers with solar PV for productive and potable use in semi/arid Southwestern Oromia and Northeastern Amhara regions.
Triple Line has been engaged to suggest recommendations for improving the project design. The explicit objective is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions & increase community resilience through sustainable access to clean water. Other key activities of the project includes:
- Developing a feasibility study in support of a GCF funding proposal as described above.
- Consulting with key stakeholders, including through fieldwork, and updating the feasibility study in an iterative process according to the needs and requirements of the GCF and Ethiopian stakeholders.
- Engaging in regular coordination within the project team responsible for preparing the GCF proposal.
