GCF introduces live web-streaming of Board meetingsSongdo,
The upcoming 13th meeting of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) Board will be live web-cast to enable the broader GCF stakeholder community to follow the deliberations of the sessions.
The live web-casting will make it possible for proceedings to be followed from anywhere, via a web-browser, with no prior registration required.
The GCF Board adopted a comprehensive Information Disclosure Policy (IDP) at its last meeting (GCF/B.12/24) that specified live web-casting of all Board meetings in 2016 and 2017, with a review of the measure by early 2018.
The policy is based upon the principles of maximizing access to information, subject only to limited exceptions, to anyone interested in the Fund.
This approach is part of a general shift among international organizations to increase the transparency of their operations and find ways to engage the broader public.
The link to the web-cast will be available on the GCF website ahead of the meeting and communicated through a separate announcement.
The three-day Board meeting will take place from 28-30 June at GCF Headquarters in Songdo, Republic of Korea.
