The Green Climate Fund has recently approved the sub-regional USD $20 million climate change project: Integrated physical adaptation and community resilience through an enhanced direct access pilot in the public, private, and civil society sectors of three Eastern Caribbean small island developing states. The purpose of the Enhancing Direct Access project, or “EDA”, is to build the capacity and track record of financing structures that increase access to and direct benefits from the Green Climate Fund for households, small and medium businesses and low-income populations in Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada and Dominica. The project will provide climate change financing via grants to the public sector using the Public Sector Investment Programme (PSIP); through contractual agreement with a service provider to provide grants to the NGO sector; and; through a contractual agreement with a service provider to establish and operationalize a revolving loan facility with highly concessional small loans to homes and small businesses. The OECS Commission will coordinate independent monitoring and evaluation of the project.
