The Independent Integrity Unit (IIU) of GCF spearheaded the inaugural Integrity Forum in celebration of International Anti-Corruption Day. Panel members from both IIU and the GCF Secretariat, specifically from Human Resources and the Ombudsperson, shared their respective roles and mandates in upholding GCF integrity standards and reaffirmed GCF's commitment to the lawful utilisation of its resources and promotion of a respectful workplace. GCF joins the international community in its efforts to combat corruption while maximising climate action.

GCF to cooperate with UNIDO

GCF and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) signed today a Readiness Framework Agreement to enable developing countries to partner with UNIDO on activities enhancing their access to GCF. As a GCF Readiness delivery partner, UNIDO will engage through national stakeholders to develop GCF Readiness Projects in a number of sustainable energy and climate change areas.

Empowering Direct Access to Climate Finance

At COP24, GCF held its first event in its pavilion, focusing on direct access to climate finance. The panel discussion, organised together with the Adaptation Fund, included speakers from Direct Access Entities, National Designated Authorities and GCF. Direct Access is crucial for developing countries to fully exercise country ownership of climate change funding. Participants shared their experience in the field, exchange best practices and discussed the ways to further support direct access and promote country ownership.

Getting ready for Katowice

GCF will be attending COP24 in Katowice, Poland from 2-14 December. We look forward to welcoming you to the GCF pavilion, located in Zone E of the venue. At the pavilion we will be hosting a series of events, panel discussions, and 'GCF 101' briefings. GCF was created by the parties to the UNFCCC, and reports on our progress each year at the annual COP climate conference. We look forward to meeting you in Katowice, and to hearing your views about how we can have a greater impact in supporting developing country climate ambitions.

The Structured Dialogue will bring together representatives from National Designated Authorities (NDAs), Focal Points (FPs), Accredited Entities (AEs) as well as other stakeholders. The event is organized in collaboration with the Government of Ethiopia and the Least Developed Countries' constituency under the UNFCCC.
