Policy brief: Concerns and recommendations regarding the design of the Green Climate Fund from participants in the UNEP NCFISP
In 2011 and 2012, government officials from over 20 developing countries participated in NCFISP regional workshops in Asia, Africa and Latin America. The workshops focused on developing institutional capacities related to climate finance, and particularly on addressing the modalities for direct access to international climate funds. Of the participating countries, many had already established, or were in the process of establishing a National Climate Finance Institution (NCFI) to mobilise and manage climate finance resources and ideally, leverage private investment.
This policy brief discusses the concerns and recommendations raised by participants in the NCFISP project in 2011 and 2012 against the background of the current discussions and development of the Green Climate Fund (GCF).
