GCF regularly holds Structured Dialogues in different regions of the world to share knowledge about how to use public investment to address climate change and stimulate private finance. The Dialogues are likewise rich venues for stakeholders to enhance understanding about GCF, as well as to stimulate thinking on how to drive national and regional momentum on climate change mitigation and adaptation.
Discussions and interactions in previous Dialogues have explored a wide range of climate solutions, including the strengthening of REDD+, enhancing the role of the private sector in climate finance, and seeking innovative ways of incorporating low-carbon economic growth in the the rapidly expanding cities of developing countries.
Several Structured Dialogues are held every year. They are designed to bring together stakeholders from different regions with GCF staff to share practical knowledge and on-the-ground experiences in accessing resources, designing funding proposals, and implementing projects.
Previous Structured Dialogues held in Latin America and the Caribbean, Asia, and Africa have been well-attended by ministers, government representatives, and other stakeholders. GCF compiles lessons learned from these events.
