Options for resource allocation in the Green Climate Fund: incentivising paradigm shift within the GCF allocation framework


Marion Vieweg, Ian Noble

For the operation of the Green Climate Fund, it will be essential to define how the objective to promote paradigm shift towards low-emission and climate-resilient development pathways - as specified in the governing instrument – will be operationalised. This paper provides some detailed reflections for mitigation and adaptation to stimulate the ongoing discussion.

The paper has been drafted as part of a compilation of background papers on possible options for resource allocation in the Green Climate Fund.
