The Green Climate Fund’s Strategic Plan is a living document, that sets out the Board’s long-term strategic vision for the Fund, as well as its strategic objectives and portfolio targets, strategic priorities and operational priorities for the current programming period.
The current updated Strategic Plan for 2020-2023 was adopted at B.27, to guide the Board in addressing policy gaps and programming GCF resources for the first replenishment period. Progress in implementation has been reported annually, and can be found in documents GCF/B.28/Inf.10/Add.03 and GCF/B.31/Inf.02/Add.02. The GCF Independent Evaluation Unit has also conducted a synthesis study and a rapid assessment on GCF-1 which will also inform strategic planning.
