Getting Africa ready for the Green Climate Fund
We were asked by the African Development Bank to analyse options that would enhance African access to the Green Climate Fund, especially through ‘direct access’. The work considers the different models for direct access and the opportunities and risks that they present. It also reviews the experience of international funds, both in the climate space and further afield. Building on these experiences, plus findings from structured interviews with a range of stakeholders, it develops a set of specific detailed recommendations for the Green Climate Fund board, African governments and the African Development Bank.
