B.BM-2016/11: Terms of reference for the review of observer participation

At its twelfth meeting, the Board initiated the process of developing terms of reference for the review of the GCF guidelines relating to observer participation, accreditation of observer organizations and participation of active observers mandated in decision B.01-13/03. In so doing, the Board requested “the Co‐Chairs to consult with fellow Board members and alternate Board members, active observers and accredited observer organizations in relation to the comprehensive review of the participation of observers in the activities of the Board”, with a view to presenting for consideration by the Board, the terms of reference for this review no later than its thirteenth meeting (decision B.12/14, para. (a)).

These terms of reference are for the review of the GCF guidelines relating to observer participation, accreditation of observer organizations and participation of active observers as outlined in annex XII to decision B.01-13/03 (annex XII to document GCF/B.01-13/12), as adopted by the Board at its third meeting. The guidelines called for a comprehensive review of observer participation, including the selection process of active observers, involving a wide range of stakeholders to be undertaken after a trial period of two years. The review will aim to assess the current guidelines, with a view to identifying gaps and improvements related to the guidelines.
