Green Climate Fund in Brief

The Green Climate Fund (GCF) is a new global fund created by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to support the efforts of developing countries to respond to the challenge of climate change (https://www.greenclimate.fund/home). The main principle of the GCF, as a global fund, is to promote a paradigm shift to low-emission and climate-resilient development across the countries.

The total committed GCF financing currently is USD10.3 billion and the mobilization of resources is ongoing.
