Take our GCF insight #18 survey: ‘What are the most common Green Climate Fund project comments?’ Closes 09/06/21

2 June 2021, Category: All insights, News, Tags: ,

Low carbon, climate resilient project design

Writing and designing fundable climate projects can be difficult. For example, the process of submitting proposals to the Green Climate Fund often comes with a lot of scrutiny and comments from the GCF secretariat and iTAP that may lead to many challenges for the project designer.

The objective of this survey is to determine the most common types of comments received on concept notes and funding proposals from the GCF. By better understanding where the biggest hurdles lie in GCF project design submissions, we hope to identify common areas of contention so that project developers can avoid common pitfalls in their proposal before submission and meet Fund requirements more easily and quickly.

We invite you to take our 18th GCF insight survey to answer the question: ‘What are the most common Green Climate Fund (GCF) project comments and how are project developers addressing them?’

Your responses will form the basis of our 18th GCF insight report, which will be shared with the wider GCF community and GCF Secretariat.

The survey closes Wednesday 9th June at 11:59pm GMT.


Once you have completed the survey, kindly forward this email to others that may find it relevant – for example to other NDAs, AEs, CSOs and project developers with whom you are working.
