SANBI promotes its call for Expression of Interests to access Green Climate Fund resources via a National Roadshow 

The South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI), an Accredited Entity of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) in South Africa has been on the road to promote its call for a Green Climate Fund Expression of Interest (EoI). The EoI call invites institutions who wish to register their interest and project ideas to formally request this by way of completing an Expression of Interest application form.

To date, SANBI has presented the EoI call across seven of South Africa's nine Provinces. Furthermore, SANBI has held virtual discussions and meetings with stakeholders from the public and private sector, academia, non-government organisations and civil society. These meetings form part of SANBI's National Roadshow which aims to promote access and transparency to all stakeholders following the advertisement for the Green Climate Fund Expression of Interest in December 2017.

For project ideas that may be considered, stakeholders are invited to align their projects with SANBI's GCF Funding Framework. Further information about the call can be accessed on SANBI's Green Climate Fund website.

With the closing date for submissions of Expression of Interest applications set for the 31st of April 2018, SANBI continues to invite institutions to formally register their project ideas by completing the Expression of Interest application (EOI) form and sending it through to Entity AF and GCF logo
