Priorities and functioning
In order to maximise the impact of its funding, the GCF prioritizes investments in the following areas:
low-emission and climate-resilient agriculture
protection of forests
enhancing resilience in Small Island Developing States
transforming energy generation and access to clean energy
In allocating its financial resources, the Fund seeks to achieve a funding balance between mitigation and adaptation. In addition, it strives to enhance the involvement of the private sector in order to mobilise additional financing.
The GCF works through international, regional, national or subnational Accredited Entities (AEs) and intermediaries to implement its activities on the ground. By interacting with National Designated Authorities (NDAs) it ensures consistency of funding proposals with national plans and strategies.
