The GCF has requested UNOPS to provide grant management services to support its Readiness and Preparatory Support Programme and Project Preparation Facility (GCF – RPSP/PPF), which aims to maximize the Fund’s effectiveness through empowering developing countries in the following activities.

  • Engaging across governments at various levels, and with civil society and private sector stakeholders
  • Developing strategic frameworks for engagement with the Fund
  • Support for accreditation and accreditation direct access entities
  • Formulation of national adaptation plans and/or other adaptation planning processes

The programme is driven by recipient country governments through their National Designated Authorities (NDAs) or focal points. The GCF sees it as a strategic priority to build on ongoing initiatives to strengthen developing countries’ capacity to access and make an effective use of climate financing from the Fund, with special emphasis on particularly vulnerable countries, including Small Island Developing States and Least Developed Countries.
