Towards Green Climate Fund Accredition and Support

The Green Climate Fund (GCF) was set up with the objective of supporting a paradigm shift in the global response to climate change by investing in low-emissions and climate-resilient development. The Fund has a commitment to pay particular attention to the needs of societies that are highly vulnerable to the effects of climate change, in particular Least Developed Countries (LDCs), Small Island Developing States (SIDS), and African States. The fund has been operational since 2015 and as of November 2017, had raised USD 10.3 billion.
