Easier access to GCF resources for smaller-scale activities

GCF has introduced a new application process for smaller-scale projects or programmes:
  • Do you have a project that is ready for scaling up, and has the potential for transformation to adapt and/or mitigate to climate change?
  • Does it require a GCF contribution of up to USD 10 million?
  • Are the environmental and social risks and impacts minimal?

If so, your proposal could benefit from the Simplified Approval Process.

Accredited Entities, National Designated Authorities (NDAs) or Focal Points and their partners are invited to bring us concept notes under the SAP. We are particularly encouraging Direct Access Entities and NDAs to take advantage of this opportunity. We also encourage partners to coordinate with NDAs and Accredited Entities in submitting concept notes, or to contact us for more information.
