GCF #2: Developing and Implementing GCF Funding Proposals

Language: English
Level: Beginner
Duration: 1 hour

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).

The Green Climate Fund is the largest fund dedicated to climate action in developing countries. The proposal and approval processes are rigorous. Because of the urgency of climate change and the strict investment framework of the Fund, it is important to submit funding proposals as correctly as possible. This course details the development phase of the GCF so practitioners can learn to prepare proposals that are aligned with the GCF's requirements.
