The Green Climate Fund works through a wide range of Accredited Entities to channel its resources to projects and programmes. Such entities have different characteristics. They can be private or public, non-governmental, sub-national, national, regional or international, as long as they meet the standards of the Fund. Accredited Entities carry out a range of activities that usually include the development of funding proposals and the management and monitoring of projects and programmes. Countries may access GCF resources through multiple entities simultaneously.
