Introduction Introduction

The Green Climate Fund is governed by a Board of 24 members - equally drawn from developed and developing countries. Representation from developing countries includes representatives of relevant United Nations regional groupings and representatives from small island developing States (SIDS) and least developed countries (LDCs). Each Board member has an alternate member. They are both selected by their respective constituency or regional group within a constituency. They serve for a term of three years with the possibility for extension.

At the helm of the Board sit two Co-Chairs - one each from the developed and developing countries - who steer the meetings and secure the rules of procedure. They are elected by their respective constituency for one-year terms.
