The Green Climate Fund is crucial, and its early capitalization is equally crucial.
Sheikh Hasina, Prime Minister, Bangladesh
Neha RaiResearcher, International Institute for Environment and Development (IISD)
The GCF board must take bigger risks, supporting entities that can channel funding to reach local communities.
Murray McCullyMinister of Foreign Affairs, New Zealand
With the growing role for the private sector and the prospect of access to the UN Green Climate Fund there should be significant potential […] to achieve more than 50 percent renewable energy by 2024 for an estimated 1 million people in Melanesia.
Isabella LövinMinister for International Development Cooperation, Sweden
Sweden is committed to become one of the first fossil-free welfare nations in the world. We believe it is much smarter to be the first one to enter the new economy, rather than being the last one depending on old solutions. Sweden is also the largest per capita contributor to the Green Climate Fund.
Tuilaepa Sailele MalielegaoiPrime Minister, Samoa
There are still numerous hurdles to accessing financial funding. I am happy to announce that Samoa is bringing home the December meeting of the Green Climate fund Board so that they can experience first-hand what the impacts are on small island developing states.
Alex MulisaMINIRENA, Rwanda
The GCF paradigm shift potential is about setting the way forward of how Rwanda will address urbanization in the future, by looking at the key elements of what constitutes a green city. This is not a business as usual approach. This falls within the highest level of strategic planning for Rwanda’s climate action
Derek GibbsNDA Representative, Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs, Barbados
We have high hopes for the GCF. We want to see it come to fruition, where the Fund is well established and disbursing resources to help vulnerable countries mitigate and adapt to climate change. Our societies need that support.
Prakash JavadekarMinister of Environment, India
Mobilizing $100 billion for the Green Climate Fund is still only in discussion and no concrete action plan has been laid out. Therefore we will ask that the roadmap for that must now be clear.
Mary RobinsonFormer President of Ireland, Climate Justice Advocate
Sydney could become the second city in the world after Paris to contribute to the Green Climate Fund.
Al GoreStatesman, Entrepreneur, Leader
The Green Climate Fund still needs to be completely funded and I will be among those working to make sure that it is.
Neha RaiClimate Change Researcher, International Institute for Environment and Development
Large-scale projects are obviously important, but there is a need for more national and subnational based initiatives. Ultimately, local people know better what works and what doesn’t in a given community, and their involvement is important to design successful interventions.
Simon MaxwellClimate and Development Knowledge and Network
Bangladesh contributed immensely in putting the issue of vulnerability on the public stage alongside mitigation and helped to influence the spending priorities of the Green Climate Fund.
Pohamba ShifetaMinister of Environment and Tourism, Namibia
Namibia's Environmental Climate Fund will submit six projects to GCF later this year.
Jeong-bok YooMayor of Incheon City
The Fund can act as a critical piece of the climate finance solutions puzzle.
Todd SternUS Special Envoy for Climate Change
We are looking for a world going forward, a post-2020 world, where the class of donors, the group of donors [...] is going to expand.
Liane SchalatekAssociate Director, HEINRICH BÖLL FOUNDATION
The GCF has the potential to become the most important multilateral public fund.
Alexander ChikwandaMinister of Finance, Zambia
It is important that this eleventh GCF Board meeting takes place in Southern Africa, which is grappling with the adverse effects of climate change.
Prakash JavadekarMinister of Environment, India
The Green Climate Fund is only talked about and not materialised. The Developed world has committed itself $100 billion per year by 2020. It has to be paid by the developed world to developing nations.
James ShawMember of Parliament, New Zealand
The Green Climate Fund is one of the most important ways that developed nations will have to help poorer nations adapt to climate change [...]
The European Parliament will push to have two goals included in the final text [of the Paris Agreement]: to limit the temperature increase to 2°C and to raise money for the Green Climate Fund.
Brandon WuActionAid International, Civil Society
We need to make sure climate finance gets to the people who need it most. [...] Dodgy accounting to make rich countries look good won’t help prevent disaster for poor countries and their people.
En tant que PMA, un appui fort du Fonds vert pour le climat est requis pour soutenir en particulier les programmes liés à la sécurité alimentaire et à l’efficacité énergétique.
François HollandePresident, France
Le Fonds vert pour le climat, créé à la suite de la conférence de Copenhague pour être l’instrument financier multilatéral de la convention sur les changements climatiques, monte en puissance, et (j'espère) que de nouvelles contributions puissent venir renforcer ses moyens.
Afghanistan requires the UNFCCC, [..] the Green Climate Fund, and other international institutional arrangements to provide the extra finance and other support needed to successfully implement LEDS across all sectors of its economy without compromising socio-economic development goals.
Haiti nécessitera un accès direct au Fonds Vert pour le Climat […] pour les mesures d'atténuation conditionnelles et les activités liées à l'adaptation, notamment l'élaboration et la mise en œuvre du Plan National d'Adaptation.
It is of vital importance that the Green Climate Fund be capitalised rapidly in order to provide the much needed funds to developing countries to enable them to meet their intended targeted contribution.
Ban Ki-moonSecretary-General, United Nations
We must get the Green Climate Fund up and running.
Taukelina FinikasoMinister for Foreign Affairs & Foreign Trade, Tuvalu
We have also submitted a comprehensive project to the Green Climate Fund to better safeguard and protect our people, land and infrastructure, in the long term, when disasters revisit in the future.
Faure Essozimna GnassingbéPresident, Togo
It is [...] crucial for future international financing that are destined to combat climate change, specifically those which will go into the Green Fund, that those do not come through reduction in traditional ODA.
Stefan LöfvenPrime Minister, Sweden
We will be strong financial supporters of the Green Climate Fund and international climate action, to support adaptation and transfer of technology on a global scale.
Timothy HarrisPrime Minister, Saint Kitts and Nevis
Access to global funding mechanisms such as the Green Climate Fund is of critical importance to us. [...]. We welcome the recent decision by the Green Climate Fund board to aim for a floor of 50 per cent of the adaptation allocation for particularly vulnerable countries, including Small Island Developing States.
