Getting Accredited

Getting Accredited

Accredited Entities are accredited by the Green Climate Fund (GCF) Board during regularly scheduled Board meetings. Accreditation applications are received by the Secretariat on a rolling basis i.e. there are no established deadlines, however decisions on the accreditation of new entities are only taken at meeting of the Board.

The GCF estimates that on average the accreditation process takes at least 6 months from submission of the application to a Board decision, if there has not been a request for readiness support and there are no clarifications required. If a request for accreditation support though the Readiness Programme has been submitted and there are numerous clarifications by the Secretariat and the Board, the accreditation process may take up to two years.
