GCF is a unique global platform to respond to climate change by investing in low-emission and climate-resilient development. GCF was established by 194 governments to limit or reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in developing countries, and to help vulnerable societies adapt to the unavoidable impacts of climate change. Given the urgency and seriousness of this challenge, GCF is mandated to make an ambitious contribution to the united global response to climate change.

20 Jan 2021 / The Green Climate Fund's (GCF) Office of Portfolio Management launched the User Acceptance Test for its Portfolio Performance Management System (PPMS). A handful of Accredited Entities (AEs) from multiple regions are taking part in this testing phase, with an expectation that the PPMS will launch in February 2021. The PPMS is a centralised portfolio management system, which aims to increase the efficiency of monitoring and managing performance and risks in GCF projects. The digitalisation of programmatic systems will help GCF and AEs collaborate and report on climate results.
