Exploring Local Access to the Green Climate Fund

The project will develop recommendations for how funding from the GCF and other sources can be more accessible to cities, for example through the creation of Urban Implementing Entities. Or how funding can be used in order to incentivise the deployment of national or sub-national resources such as revenues from fees, local taxes or municipal bonds for urban climate compatible development projects.


  • The overall objective of this project is to ensure that the Green Climate Fund is directly accessible to sub-national stakeholders, including local authorities, civil society organisations and knowledge institutions, in order for them to design and implement sustainable adaptation strategies.
  • A secondary objective is to support the engagement of interested Southern civil society – rooted organisations with ample experience in climate change projects and policies at the local and national level – in the design of the Green Climate Fund.


The action-research will involve three main areas of work:

  • Development of key recommendations to assure direct local access to the Green Climate Fund based on an analysis of needs by local actors and of lessons to be learned from direct access modalities of existing financing mechanisms.
  • Definition of a joint policy influencing strategy with national and local NGOs from developed and developing countries.
  • Engaging in policy dialogues, providing GCF board members and government representatives from developed and developing countries who participate in the current negotiations on the GCF, strategic advice on assuring local access.
