GCF Board meets in Cape Town for informal dialogue

The Green Climate Fund Board is meeting in Cape Town, South Africa, from 2 to 4 February for an informal dialogue on the Fund’s expectations for 2016 and key operational issues.

The Cape Town dialogue, under the guidance of new Co-Chairs Ewen McDonald (Australia) and Zaheer Fakir (South Africa), will consider how to meet the Board’s aspirational target of approving USD 2.5 billion in funding proposals by the end of 2016.

The dialogue will focus on the Board’s 2016 Work Plan and development of a Strategic Plan for the Fund.

The informal dialogue in Cape Town is also expected to confirm dates for all Board meetings in 2016. It will be attended by Board members, their alternates and advisers, as well as the four active civil society and private sector observers.
