The toolkit provides indispensable guidance covering:
Things to know before applying: The toolkit provides an overview of the amount and type of funding available along with the role of the key actors involved, such as National Designated Authorities, Accredited Entities and Executing Entities.
Proposal design elements: The toolkit presents how to prepare a logic framework, develop a Gender Assessment and Action Plan and justify the rationale for GCF involvement (the “exit strategy”)
This book steps into the new world of broad-scale and locally relevant policy experimentation. Chapters focus on the political economy of clean energy transition and emphasize specific issues encountered in both developed and developing countries. The authors contribute diversity of experience drawn from all major regions of the world, representing a compendium of what has been learned from recent initiatives—mostly at the country level—to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) presents its Progress report (2014- August 2015), which highlights CTCN results in key services (technical assistance, access to information and scaling up international collaboration).
2016 CTCN Progress Report launched. Developing country trends in climate technology transfer needs presented. The report presents an overview of CTCN services: technical assistance, capacity building and knowledge sharing.
In its 2017 Progress Report, the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) describes the key types of technology-related assistance that developing countries are seeking as they strive to fullfill their Nationally Determined Contributions and National Adaptation Plans. The report also explores how the CTCN is building new bridges to financing and laying the groundwork for sustained uptake of technologies through collective action on several important fronts.
Smallholder farmers and lenders with smallholder lending portfolios ( which according to CGAP currently account for about USD 50 billion globally) are highly vulnerable to climate change impacts. mfarmPay, a novel parametric lending solution driving financing to African farmers, offers innovative data-driven solution to reducing climate risk in lending portfolios and incentivising the adoption of climate-smart farming approaches by smallholder food producers.
This paper introduces the Renewable Power Fraction and Renewable Energy Fraction as self-defining metrics to quantify and visualise the performance of renewable generators versus the total load, and show how corresponding Fossil or Demand Side Management Power and Energy Fractions can similarly be defined.
