The objective of this project is to improve national capacity on renewable energy (RE) and energy efficiency (EE) technologies for SMEs and households in North Macedonia. This project is part of a Joint Programme funded by the UN Joint SDG Fund and entitled “Green Finance Facility to Improve Air Quality and Combat Climate Change in North Macedonia”. This Joint Programme is implemented jointly by UNECE with UNDP (lead agency) and IOM under the overall coordination of the Resident Coordinator Office in North Macedonia. The Joint Programme contributes to the achievement of SDGs 7 (targets 7.2, 7.3. and 7.a) and 13 (target 13.2.2). With the support from the Joint SDG Fund, this Joint Programme will set up and operationalize Green Financing Facility (GFF), a new financial vehicle, that will provide access to affordable green financing for SMEs and marketable but underserved target groups of individuals/ households for investments in RE and EE solutions. The GFF-enabled accelerated adoption of RE and EE solutions will contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution and strengthen the local ecosystem for RE and EE green finance.
