The organisation has relevant policies, processes and procedures (jointly the assessment framework) in place for making a considered appraisal of which projects should be financed, using which instruments.

    I am overwhelmed by this offer in respect of situations that are left un addressed in my constituent area. Climate change has devastated and continues to do so that requires immediate sustainable solutions. Land is being eroded uncontrablely, vegetation is being devastated without concern and control while unconscious of devastating outcomes. People live in poverty and hunger. I wish to take this opportunity to take part in offering sustainable solutions.
