Concept notes

Concept notes provide basic information about a project or programme that an Accredited Entity is proposing to submit to GCF for funding approval. They provide Accredited Entities with a chance to seek initial feedback on whether their proposal matches GCF's objectives and mandate, and may offer a useful way to share funding ideas with the GCF secretariat.

Concept notes are different from more detailed funding proposals, which Accredited Entities submit for consideration by the GCF Board. Initial GCF feedback does not represent a commitment to provide financial resources to support the proposed climate finance initiative.
