Project development and the Green Climate Fund (GCF)

What are the specific processes and requirements to develop GCF projects? – Overview of the GCF, key terminology and specific demands of the GCF

In this module, participants gain a more detailed understanding of the GCF, its objectives and its project approval process. This includes some general background information on the GCF and its approved projects, a discussion about access modalities including involved entities, and a closer look at the project approval process and project requirements namely the six investment criteria, the environmental and social safeguards, gender policy and the results management framework of the GCF. Apart from this general introduction, participants are also introduced to selected approved GCF projects to help them better grasp the key features of successful proposals.

The exercise allows looking at some elements of the GCF proposals in more detail, namely added value of GCF involvement and the paradigm shift indicator.
