NCEA input to 2nd draft GCF ESMS

Détails significatifs

The GCF aims to contribute to climate finance mitigation and adaptation, and to sustainable development goals, in low and middle income countries. The GCF is more than the existing funds aiming at paradigms shifts to achieve climate change goals and sustainable development. Its instruments include its investment criteria, country readiness programmes and Environmental and Social Management System and Policy, including Environmental and Social Safeguards. The Dutch board member asked NCEA to advise about its position concerning the further development of the instruments by GCF. The Netherlands, as part of the Danish / Netherlands / Luxembourg seat in the GCF board, wanted to play a constructive role in that ongoing learning and development process. NCEA's independent advice was of practical nature as helpful to determine position whenever the board agenda provides opportunities to influence the process, often reacting to proposals from the GCF secretariat.
