GCF #1 Introduction to the Green Climate Fund
This course was developed with financial support from the German Federal Environment Ministry (BMU) based on a decision by the German Bundestag, as part of the project “GCF CSO Readiness – focus Africa – Phase II” under the International Climate Initiative (IKI).
Climate change is the defining crisis of our time, and it is happening even more quickly than expected. Based on existing trends, the world could cross the 1.5°C threshold within the next two decades and 2°C threshold early during the second half of the century. Limiting global warming to 1.5°C is still narrowly possible and will be determined by the investment decisions made over the next decade.
The Green Climate Fund (GCF) is the world’s largest climate fund and a critical element of the historic Paris Agreement. It is mandated to support developing countries raise and realize the ambition of their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) towards low-emissions, climate-resilient pathways. Given the urgency and seriousness of the climate crisis, GCF is mandated to make an ambitious contribution to the united global response to climate change.
