Guidelines for the operationalization of the fit-for- purpose accreditation approach

The fit-for-purpose approach recognizes the role of a wide range of entities, which differ in the scope and nature of their activities, as well as their capacities. By enabling entities, including subnational, national and regional entities, to increase their scope of activities as their capacity increases over time, should they want to do so, the accreditation process will contribute to empower developing countries.

The guidelines for the operationalization of the fit-for-purpose accreditation approach set out how the Fund’s fiduciary standards and ESS will be assessed though a fit-for-purpose accreditation process, and the criteria that entities need to meet in order to demonstrate compliance so as to be accredited to access the Fund’s resources.
