National Designated Authority

About National Designated Authority (NDA) for the Green Climate Fund. The National Designated Authority (NDA) is an interface for climate Funds. Currently it is a focal point for the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and Adaptation Fund (AF). The NDA manages processes and operations related to these Funds in Zambia. It coordinates all climate change programming and financing to ensure that the projects are within the development priorities of the country.

“We are resolved to continue working hard to mobilize the resources from various climate change financing windows to finance climate responsive 7NDP programmes and projects. We will also in collaboration with other Government agencies support other alternative ways of financing development projects contained in the plan such as public private partnerships, joint ventures and absolute private sector initiatives while maintaining our focus on completing on-going projects.”

Droughts and floods have increased in frequency and intensity over the last two decades and this has adversely impacted on food and water security, energy availability and general livelihoods of our communities.”

Mr. Francis Mpampi
Mr. Francis Mpampi NDA National Coordinator
“We are proud that Zambia’s project pipeline reflects a consultative process, at the national and regional level, driven by the NDA. A call for expressions of interest was launched earlier this year to solicit inputs from stakeholders to hear what projects should be brought forward or scaled up, as well as to get a sense of which entities are the right ones to put forward as candidates for direct access. This has helped us focus on how to achieve our aims.””
