This briefing is the second of a two-part Climate Analytics series that examines historical access to the Green Climate Fund (GCF) by Small Island Developing States (SIDS). It focuses on the quality of SIDS proposals submitted to the GCF based on the feedback given to proposals by the independent Technical Advisory Panel (iTAP).
Meeting climate goals is becoming a matter of fundamental concern for many countries. For the most vulnerable countries, meeting global mitigation targets to limit the increase in global warming to below 1.5 degrees above preindustrial levels is a matter of survival - because of their limited financial, technical, technological and human capacity to cope with increasing and more frequent climate-related adverse events. This analysis takes stock of the resources mobilised through funding proposals submitted to and approved by the Green Climate Fund over the period from November 2015 to July 2021 (Board 29). It is based on data published by the GCF.
This briefing analyses approved Green Climate Fund (GCF) projects from November 2015 to July 2021, with a view to understanding how Small Island Developing States (SIDS) have accessed the GCF to date.
