HELPING ACCESS THE

GREEN CLIMATE FUND

IN 18 COUNTRIES​​

Natural Strategies Director Alexander Koch helps 18 countries in Asia, Latin America and Africa access the Green Climate Fund (GCF). The objective is to enable countries to mobilize GCF funding for high impact projects in the forest, energy and agriculture sectors.

 

Established by the 194 countries who are parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Green Climate Fund (GCF) is the largest multi-lateral financial mechanism for climate investments worldwide. The GCF aims to catalyze a flow of climate finance for low-emission and climate-resilient development, thereby driving a paradigm shift in the global response to climate change.

 

In helping coordinate UNDP’s portfolio of GCF Readiness Programmes globally, Alexander supports countries in the design of national strategies and decision-making procedures related to the GCF, in strengthening stakeholder engagement processes and in preparing pipelines of GCF projects. The objective is to enable countries to mobilize GCF funding for high impact projects in the forest, energy and agriculture sectors, in line with their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and other key national climate strategies and priorities.
