A toolkit for understanding the Green Climate Fund. The Green Climate Fund is the main public fund that helps developing countries tackle climate change, however, its application procedures are complicated. We have developed a toolkit to help project developers understand the requirements for designing and submitting a funding proposal. It aims to make the fund’s requirements and terminology more user-friendly for non-experts. The toolkit covers all the steps, from the preparation of a concept note to a full proposal and explains how to access support for project preparation.
