The new GCCA+ flagship programme takes stock of the changed development challenges ahead and redirects its priorities, governance structure and operational support to address the actual and foreseen climate change needs in achievement of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (in particular goal 13 related to climate change) and the implementation of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Paris COP21 outcomes. The GCCA+ focuses its technical support on three priority areas: 1) Climate change mainstreaming and poverty reduction; 2) Increasing resilience to climate-related stresses and shocks; 3) Sector-based climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies.

During the preparation and implementation of a GCCA intervention, the EU Delegation in charge will inform, consult and as much as possible engage local representatives of EU Member States, in the context of donor coordination at the country level. This coordination can result in synergies and complementarities between bilateral and European Commission-managed interventions; co-financing of a number of activities; joint programming; or delegated cooperation, i.e. technical cooperation whereby an EU Member State development agency is responsible for the implementation of part of, or a full GCCA-funded programme. For projects requiring budget support, make direct contact with GCCA to discuss potential projects, however, the following considerations should be taken into consideration: Has the country already received Budget Support through the EU or other Donors? There is an EU Delegation with sufficient capacity to prepare and follow up implementation of the GCCA programme.
