The Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA) is an initiative of the European Union. Its overall objective is to build a new alliance on climate change between the European Union and poor developing countries that are most affected and that have the least capacity to deal with climate change. Support through funding is directed to poor developing countries most vulnerable to climate change, particularly the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and Small Island Development States (SIDS). The five GCCA priority areas include:
- Mainstreaming climate change into poverty reduction and development strategies
- Adaptation, building on the National Adaptation Programmes of Action (NAPAs) and other national plans
- Disaster risk reduction (DRR)
- Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD)
- Enhancing participation in the Global Carbon Market and Clean Development Mechanism (CDM)
