Accelerating Direct Access
Green Climate Fund organises workshop on Direct Access

The Green Climate Fund organised a 5 day workshop in Songdo, South Korea, between the 25th and the 29th of April 2016. The audience included Nationally Designated Authorities and Focal Points with direct access to GCF Readiness Support, Direct Access Entities, and other international partners supporting NDAs and Direct Access Entities to build their capacity and develop project pipelines.

The workshop aimed to accelerate the development of project/programme pipelines, country programmes and develop capacity on gender. It inclided a walkthrough session of funding proposals and project preparation support, structured dialogue sessions to permit NDAs to discuss their country priorities, and case studies on gender in sustainable energy and in climate resilient agriculture.
