The Green Climate Fund (GCF) was established by the Conference of Parties to the UNFCCC in 2010, as a unique global initiative to respond to climate change by investing into low-emission and climate-resilient development. GCF was established by 194 governments to limit or reduce greenhouse gas emissions in developing countries, and to help adapt vulnerable societies to the unavoidable impacts of climate change.
The Federal Ministry of Environment, Nature Conservancy, Building and Nuclear Safety of Germany-funded (BMUB) “Green Climate Fund Readiness Programme”, jointly implemented by United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the World Resource Institute (WRI) is supporting 9 countries (Benin, Colombia, El Salvador, Fiji, Ghana, Kenya, Nepal, Philippines, and Uzbekistan) to improve their national systems to access, manage, and monitor climate finance, particularly from the Green Climate Fund, or GCF (http://www.gcfreadinessprogramme.org). The programme is on its last year of implementation, therefore it is now critical to identify, aggregate, document, and disseminate lessons and best practices, across climate finance and development practitioners, government actors, the Green Climate Fund Readiness Coordination Mechanism, donors, and other relevant stakeholders.
