The Green Climate Fund recognizes the need to ensure that developing country partners exercise ownership of climate change funding and integrate it within their own national action plans. GCF's Governing Instrument makes clear that the Fund will adopt a country-driven approach and strengthen program coherence and stakeholder coordination at the national level. That’s why in every developing country there are National Designated Authorities (NDAs), who are the interface between each country and the Fund. These Focal Points communicate the country’s strategic priorities for financing low-emission and climate-resilient development across its economy.
Over 130 countries have selected NDAs to play this role. They are chosen by governments to act as the core interface between a developing country and the Fund. NDAs provide broad strategic oversight of GCF’s activities in a country and serve as the point of communication with the Fund. Funding proposals are submitted through these NDAs, ensuring that investments are aligned with local needs and existing climate change planning.
