Climate solutions for SIDS

Global Climate Change Alliance+

The Global Climate Change Alliance Plus (GCCA+) is a flagship initiative of the European Union helping the world's most vulnerable countries mainly Small Islands Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to increase their resilience to climate change


The GCCA+ Index for Climate Resilient Development is made up of 34 country-specific indicators covering social, economic and environmental aspects critical for ‘climate-resilient’ development. It helps policymakers make funding decisions based on a country’s vulnerability. This index was created by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC), and tailored to specifically support GCCA+ implementation. It is an open-source and public tool.

The GCCA+ supports more than 60 national & regional programmes
