Green Climate Fund Request for Proposals

Apply before August 30th

The Green Climate Fund (GCF) was set up by the 194 countries who are parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Backed by pledges of over USD 10 billion, the Fund aims to mobilize funding at scale to invest in low-emission and climate-resilient development.

The Fund has set up a Private Sector Facility to unleash the potential of the private sector for clean energy and climate resilience projects in developing countries. GCF’s Board has approved a pilot programme of up to USD 500 million to leverage private investments.

About this Request for Proposals
