The Government of the Republic of North Macedonia represented by the Cabinet of the Deputy President of the Government in charge of Economic Affairs as a National Designated Authority (NDA) for the Green Climate Fund announces an Open call for Submitting Applications from potential Green Climate Fund (GCF) Direct Access Entities (DAEs).
