  • Green Climate Fund Simplified Approval Process | Webinar Series

    8 May 2018 to 1 Aug 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

    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.

    Three webinar sessions on different thematics will be delivered. Each session will be delivered in 3 different time zones. 

    Registrations will be based on a first-come-first-serve basis.
