Trans-sectoral experts met on Monday 20th May in the meeting room at the Ministry for Agriculture, Livestock, Forests and the Environment (MAGBOMA) in order to validate the Country Programme and the national web page of the Green Climate Fund in Equatorial Guinea.

It is hoped that, in the short term, the Country Programme is presented before the Green Climate Fund for approval. If it achieves financing for the set of projects in the Country Programme, Equatorial Guinea will have the facilities to move forward towards compliance with its commitment under the Paris Summit (2015) to reduce emissions to 20% by 2030, with respect to 2010 levels, and a reduction on 50% for 2050.
