Readiness Support to Entities in Asia Pacific seeking Accreditation to the Green Climate Fund

Readiness Support to Entities in Asia Pacific seeking Accreditation to the Green Climate Fund

The Green Climate Fund (Fund) was established with the purpose of making a significant and ambitious contribution to the global efforts towards attaining the goals set by the international community to combat climate change. In the context of sustainable development, the Fund will promote a paradigm shift towards low-emission and climateresilient development pathways by providing support to developing countries to limit or reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and to adapt to the impacts of climate change. The Fund is governed and supervised by the Board and was designated as an operating entity of the financial mechanism of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

The Fund’s headquarters are located in Songdo, Incheon City, Republic of Korea. Its operations will start with approximately 50 core staff assisted by external specialized resources/consultants in 2014, with a possibility of expanding regularly over the years. In anticipation of its call for applications for accreditation starting on 17th November 2014, the Fund, as a part of its Readiness and Preparatory Support Programme, seeks to provide readiness support to subnational, national and regional entities requesting assistance to become accredited to the Fund under the direct access track. Through this request for proposals, the Fund will award, on the basis of a fair, transparent and competitive selection process, a contract to the successful consulting firm to provide such support.
