The Green Climate Fund (GCF) was set up by the 194 Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 2010, as an operating entity of the Convention’s financial mechanism. It aims to assist the achievement of the ultimate objective of the Convention on stabilizing greenhouse gas concentrations “at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic (human-induced) interference with the climate system.” The Board of GCF has approved 81 projects, out of which 19 are submitted by Direct Access Accredited Entities.

The Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC at its twenty-second session requested the Board of GCF to facilitate an increase in the amount of direct access proposals in the pipeline. In response, GCF promotes national and regional direct access through its Readiness and Preparatory Support Programme, and Project Preparation Facility. GCF also encourages capacity building programmes for National Designated Authorities and Accredited Entities to share best practices and lessons learnt through a peer-to-peer approach.

The Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) is a regional Direct Access Entity to GCF. Its first project “Climate Information Service for Resilient Development in Vanuatu” was approved by the Board of GCF in 2016. This webinar aims to provide peer-to-peer knowledge exchange and information sharing on practices and lessons learnt by SPREP in the project initiation, preparation, submission and implementation. The webinar will also provide insights on future approaches by the national and regional Direct Access Entities on project design, development and funding submission to GCF.

Presenter:
Espen Ronneberg, Climate Change Adviser
Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme

Co-organizers:
Asian Institute of Technology, Overseas Environmental Cooperation Centre, Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme, Ministry of the Environment, Japan

About the Initiative

In August 2017, with the support of the Wallace Global Fund, WEDO and Both ENDS, as  a member of the Global Alliance for Green and Gender Action (GAGGA), launched a new joint initative: “Women Demand ‘Gender-Just’ Climate Finance”. The initiative aims to build capacity and knowledge to track, monitor and, most importantly, influence the projects and financial flows of the Green Climate Fund (GCF). With the hope of mobilizing further resources and support, in 2018, the initiative will fund the direct participation of feminist and women’s rights activists in the work of the GCF, support regional feedback channels, work with women’s funds on strategies for direct access, and, host a webinar series.
