SIDS access to the Green Climate Fund - understanding the GCF portfolio in small island developing statesReports
Climate Finance is a key element of supporting ambitious action on climate change. We have been closely following the development of a new institutional architecture for international climate finance in the aftermath of Copenhagen. As part of our negotiation support delivered to Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs), we support negotiators in the UNFCCC and GCF negotiations with on-demand analysis and technical support on all areas of international climate finance. This enables them to formulate an integrated strategy in the implementation of the international climate finance architecture as part of the negotiations working towards a rapid implementation of the Paris Agreement.
Our expertise also includes the analysis and synthesis of technical information regarding the assessment of sources for long-term finance and comparative analysis of elements and options for the operationalisation of the institutional climate finance architecture.
In order to facilitate efforts to advance the operationalisation of the new climate finance architecture and provide space for informal discussions amongst negotiators and experts, we organise workshops and meetings in cooperation with government agencies, and non-governmental partners.
