GCF Structured Dialogue with the Pacific
30 July – 2 August 2018, Pohnpei, FSM
The Green Climate Fund (GCF) Structured Dialogue with the Pacific, hosted by the Government of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) and supported by the government of Australia, will bring together key stakeholders to strengthen the involvement of Pacific island countries and their partners with GCF and accelerate the implementation of GCF projects and programmes approved in the Region.
The Structured Dialogue for the Pacific will take place in Pohnpei, FSM, on 30 July – 2 August 2018. It will involve about 150 participants from 14 Pacific countries, including Ministers for a High-Level Session, and representatives of National Designated Authorities, Accredited Entities, Delivery Partners, civil society organisations, the private sector and development partners.
The Pacific has successfully had nine full funding proposals approved (eight from public sector and one from private sector), 19 Readiness Proposals and had Direct Aaccess Entities accredited to date. The dialogue will provide an opportunity to harvest lessons learned towards: strengthening and streamlining implementation; exploring further investment opportunities including with the private sector; fostering sustainable country ownership and programming; and building effective partnerships.
The dialogue is seen as a critical part of GCFs efforts in supporting Pacific Island Countries to achieve their low carbon, climate resilient sustainable development goals.
