CowaterSogema is a lead provider to the Green Climate Fund’s Communities of Practice

CowaterSogema has been selected as one of the lead providers of climate change expertise to the Green Climate Fund (GCF) under their Communities of Practice (CoP) framework. Together with partners Climatekos, Trinomics, Viresco Solutions and ESSA Technologies, CowaterSogema will provide expertise in five core thematic areas: agriculture, innovative finance, climate economics and economic analysis, ecosystems and water resources.

The CoP will drive transformative actions in support of the Fund’s mandate to provide financial support to developing countries, helping them limit or reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the impacts of climate change. The CoP is a network of globally renowned expert organisations who will provide GCF with technical advisory services in core sectoral and key thematic areas, such as forestry, energy efficiency, urban development, health, and others.

The key goals of the Communities of Practice include:

  • ensuring that the best global knowledge and expertise on climate change guides the Fund’s operations;
  • leveraging the capabilities and expertise of partner organisations to maximise GCF internal capacity;
  • positioning GCF as a thought leader by integrating global climate knowledge and advancing its executional capacity;
  • supporting complementarity and exchanging information with other organisations working in the field of climate finance.

We are proud to offer this combination of excellence to support the GCF’s goal of promoting paradigm shift towards low emissions and climate resilient development as well as making a significant contribution to global goals on climate change.
