Local actors ready to act: Six proposals to improve their access to the Green Climate Fund

Climate change is a global phenomenon, but its impact is felt locally. People, government institutions, women’s groups, grassroots organisations and small businesses operating at the local level not only directly experience the on-the- ground effects of climate change, they are also key contributors to context- specific, effective, and sustainable climate actions. It is therefore essential to ensure these actors play an active role in the development and implementation of climate initiatives and that they can directly access climate finance. The six proposals in this booklet provide concrete recommendations towards the Board of the Green Climate Fund (GCF), the Secretariat, and relevant decision-makers to enhance access of local actors to the GCF funds, and to ensure they are actively involved in GCF and country-level decision-making processes.
