Mitigation Action Facility Board
The decision-making body of the Mitigation Action Facility is the Mitigation Action Facility Board, currently comprising representatives of the donors of the Mitigation Action Facility. The Donors are Germany, UK, Denmark, the European Union and the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF). Board Members take all decisions on strategy and project selection.
The Mitigation Action Facility is a joint initiative of:
Technical Support Unit
The Technical Support Unit (TSU) serves as the secretariat and portfolio manager and supports the Board in its management. The TSU functions as a focal point for partner governments, implementing partners, implementation organisations and other stakeholders. It is responsible for the development of processes and documents with regard to the overall project cycle of the Mitigation Action Facility, organising Calls for Projects, steering the assessment of Project Concepts, Outlines and Proposals, carrying out monitoring, evaluation and learning activities as well as reporting to Donors.
Facility Grant Agent
Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is the designated Facility Grant Agent (FGA). This mandate includes managing the Mitigation Action Facility funding and staffing the TSU. As any eligible organisation, GIZ may also function as implementation organisations with regard to individual projects. The FGA will contract qualified organisations and channel the funds for the project’s Detailed Preparation Phase (DPP) and its implementation of a project selected by the Board. This is necessary in order to safeguard the underlying contractual arrangements of the Mitigation Action Facility and meet the donors’ requirements.
Mitigation Action Facility Information Policy
The Mitigation Action Facility aims to provide fair and equal access and treatment to all applicants and stakeholders.
In line with our objective to be open and transparent, we publish Mitigation Action Facility documents on our website, e.g. the Mid-Term Evaluation Report and Management Response (under NAMA Facility), Executive Summaries of the Annual Reports and the Monitoring and Evaluation Framework.
The Mitigation Action Facility strives to become a learning hub. To pursue this objective, the Mitigation Action Facility offers feedback calls to all applicants to our Calls for Projects. We understand this feedback as a two-way process, fostering learning for stakeholders as well as for the Mitigation Action Facility itself. Furthermore, the Mitigation Action Facility makes available lessons learnt and analysis on various topics in the format of webinars, factsheets and workshops. Visit the Knowledge & Learning Hub.
The Mitigation Action Facility provides updates on the latest developments and calls for proposals via our mailing list that is open to everybody interested in the Mitigation Action Facility. It also disseminates lessons learnt through active participation in relevant international fora and meetings such as United Nations Climate Change Conferences, regional Carbon Forums etc.
The compliance management and integrity of the Mitigation Action Facility is ensured by the Facility Grant Agent. This includes an external ombudsman. These resources can be contacted directly and anonymously.
