Infographic – The Green Climate Fund
The Green Climate Fund (GCF) is the largest climate fund in the world. GCF launched its initial resource mobilization in 2014, and gathered pledges worth USD 10.3 billion. It was established by 194 governments at the Sixteenth Conference of Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Cancun in 2010. Its goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in developing countries, and to help adapt vulnerable societies to the unavoidable impacts of climate change.
The work on cooperation with the GCF in Uzbekistan is currently being conducted within the framework of the joint project of UNDP in Uzbekistan, Centre of Hydrometeorological Service under the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Republic of Uzbekistan and UN Environment “Green Climate Fund Readiness Programme in Uzbekistan”.
