The Inclusive Budgeting and Financing for Climate Change in Africa (IBFCCA) programme aims to strengthen the linkages between climate change policy and the budgeting process, working closely with ministries of finance across Africa to support the mobilisation of wider national and local government budgetary processes. Component A of the programme is supporting this through piloting and establishing a cadre and knowledge portal to support peer learning and exchanges, research, technical assistance, and capacity building.
OneWorld was contracted by Collaborative Africa Budget Reform Initiative (CABRI) to help design and develop the cadre and knowledge sharing portal, to support and build capacity in Africa on the integration of climate change and gender into public finance management (PFM) systems. The proposed online knowledge sharing portal to be used internally by programme partners and the cadre, and externally by governments, legislatures, and civil society organisations. OneWorld proposed a ‘start small, think big and scale up’ model for the cadre development, and an adaptive management approach to support learning by doing as the cadre and knowledge portal develop in the next phase of the project.
The IBFCCA programme is run by a partnership between CABRI, the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), the International Budget Partnership (IBP), and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
