    The primary aim of this guidebook is to provide countries participating in the Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) Project with practical guidance that will help them secure financing for adaptation technology transfer project profiles identified in their Technology Action Plans (TAPs). The TNA project is being implemented by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) on behalf of the Global Environment Facility (GEF). This guidebook provides a number of concrete tools and recommendations that will help TNA countries identify and access funding to implement their TAPs, such as:
    • An overview of international public funding sources dedicated to adaptation investments (Chapter 3)
    • Seven fundamental eligibility criteria for accessing international public funding and guidance on how to apply these concepts to project ideas (Chapter 3)
    • A template (built on the abovementioned seven fundamental eligibility criteria) for developing/ presenting adaptation project ideas to international donors. Using this format when communicating
    project ideas to international donors and agencies is likely to facilitate greater interest and increase the chances of successfully accessing available funding (Chapter 3 and Annex I and II)
    • An overview of critical concepts and requirements for accessing private financing for adaptation and a number of instructive case studies (Chapter 4).
