Green Climate Fund Simplified Approval Process | Webinar Series
25 Jun 2018 to 26 Jun 2018 | Online
This webinar series is dedicated to Nationally Designated Authorities (NDAs), Accredited Entities (AEs), and other stakeholders interested in understanding the new Simplified Approval Process (SAP) for resource mobilization of the Green Climate Fund. The webinar will be in French and Spanish.
SAP is a new approach that simplifies and streamlines the GCF approval of certain small-scale low-risk projects of up to USD 10 million in GCF funding, particularly from Direct Access Entities. The simplifications are two-fold:
1. The documentation to be provided with the Funding Proposal is reduced; and
2. The review and approval processes are streamlined.
Registrations will be based on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please visit:
Spanish: 15:30 - 16:30 CEST, 25 June 2018
