Since it started its work in Bhutan and Cambodia in 2011, LoCAL has been introduced or tested in an additional ten countries in Asia and the Pacific: Bangladesh, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Nepal and Tuvalu - and in Africa: Benin, Ghana, Mali, Mozambique, Niger and Tanzania.
As LoCAL continues to expand its global reach, more than 100 local governments are expected to join in 2017 and make use of the mechanism, thereby enabling more poor people to benefit from this new type of access to climate finance and the adaptation investments that follow.
More LDCs have expressed their interest and are preparing to join LoCAL, as it offers them a proven and scalable means to channel climate finance effectively and transparently to the people most in need.
The objective in these countries is to pilot a mechanism that can then be scaled up to the national level, ultimately reaching over 400 million people.
