GCF: Countries must take ownership

The director for GCF Taskforce, Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Sally Truong, said GCF focuses on countries to at least put in some level of support to fund project proposals.

Truong said this demonstrates country ownership of the proposals.

GCF was established to assist developing countries finance their climate change mitigation and adaptation programs.

The proposals must be submitted to the GCF Board to undergo screening before they can be approved for funds to be released.
