Workshop: Green Climate Fund Readiness Project Start
As of: August 2020
Objective and activities
As the central financing instrument under the Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Green Climate Fund (GCF) supports developing countries and emerging economies in mitigating their greenhouse gas emissions and implementing climate change adaptation measures. The readiness of recipient countries to receive climate financing is an essential precondition for gaining access to monies of the Fund. The Green Climate Fund workshop on readiness took place in Bridgetown, Barbados from 11‐12 July 2013. The goal of the workshop was to build upon discussions initiated at the 3rd meeting of the Board in Berlin, to enhance learning on existing practices, initiatives and programmes on readiness and preparatory support and to discuss and advance thinking on modalities for readiness and preparatory support for the Fund and associated policy matters. The outcome of the workshop has informed the document on readiness and preparatory support (GCF/B.05/14) which was discussed at the meeting of the GCF Board, 7-11 October 2013 in Paris.
