Towards the Full Operationalization of the Green Climate Fund

Climate Analytics and the World Resources Institute (WRI) convened an informal meeting of negotiators involved in the design of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) in New York City. The purpose was to provide an opportunity for prospective Board members, alternates, advisers, and other delegations involved in negotiations around the GCF, to exchange views on the next steps in the Fund’s design and operationalization.

Participants were invited to engage in an informal, structured conversation to share their views and reach a better understanding of what was agreed in the Durban decision and the governing instrument of the GCF. The meeting was designed to prepare for, but in no way preempt, the work of the GCF Board operated under the Chatham House Rule.
