The main objective of the workshop was to facilitate a peer-to-peer exchange on how to develop mitigation measures (including NAMAs) in the form of policy and financial frameworks that make low-carbon projects and programmes bankable.  The workshop discussed key issues in mobilizing financing for implementation of mitigation measures in Anglophone African countries, facilitating exchange of experiences from on-going initiatives in the sub-region and provide practical insights from international organizations and financing institutions supporting the implementation of mitigation measures. It will elaborate and discuss the major stages of mitigation actions financing cycles: the aim will be to look at essential elements of a financing plan, the pitfalls to avoid and the actions that need to be put in place to develop bankable mitigation measures.
