5-minute survey: Country Ownership in GCF projects
In the Governing Instrument for the Green Climate Fund which was approved by the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), clause 3 of the Objectives and guiding principles section reads: “The Fund will pursue a country-driven approach and promote and strengthen engagement at the country level through effective involvement of relevant institutions and stakeholders.”
It’s becoming increasingly important for the GCF to ensure projects are aligned well with national priorities and to ensure there are the highest levels of commitment both during and post project implementation. This commitment is needed, as without it, sustainable positive change may not be a given. These projects are investments in a country – if there is a lack of country ownership, it is probable that ongoing change and leverageable results from the project may be compromised.
Take the survey
The survey has a few short questions and should take no more than 5 minutes to complete. The deadline is Monday 17 June.
About the survey
We conduct the survey independently, and both survey and report are not affiliated with the Green Climate Fund, the GCF Secretariat or other donors.
Once you have completed the survey kindly forward this webpage to other people that may be interested and who work with the GCF.
Why would you answer this survey?
You and the GCF community can benefit: we will compile the results and prepare a report with the data you provide, and present the findings at our webinar following B.23. You will learn whether your views are shared by others. You can also get your voice heard at the highest level in the GCF and donor communities.
How will we use your responses?
Your responses are strictly confidential. The reports generated from this survey will not contain any information that personally identifies you, your organisation, or your country.
How can you get the final report?
We will be sharing the report on the survey results in advance of the board meeting (6-8 July). A summary of the key findings will also be shared with the global climate finance community.
Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. Your response is a valuable contribution to understanding the GCF as it develops.
