To channel the resources of the Green Climate Fund to projects and programmes, the Fund works through Accredited Entities.
Accredited Entities carry out a range of activities that usually include the development of funding proposals and the management and monitoring of projects and programmes. Countries may access GCF resources through multiple entities simultaneously. Accredited entities may carry out a range of activities however their most important and main function is to develop project and programme proposals and manage and monitor those projects and programmes that have been approved.
These entities have different characteristics and can be private or public, non-governmental, sub-national, national, regional or international, as long as they meet the standards of the Fund. Each institution is required to have policies and procedures in place that are aligned and consistent with the GCF’s fiduciary standards, environmental and social risks and gender policy.
The types of Accredited Entities are:
Direct Access Entities (Direct Access Entities: Institutions that apply for accreditation through the di...)
Direct Access Entities are sub-national, national or regional organizations are nominated by developing country National Designated Authorities (NDAs) or focal points directly receive GCF resources. Organizations nominated to become Direct Access Entities may be eligible to receive GCF readiness support. This funding is designed to help organizations in developing countries prepare to become Accredited Entities, as well as helping those which have already been accredited to strengthen their organizational capacities. Direct access entities include the likes of the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre and the Caribbean Development Bank.
An improved form of Direct Access is Enhanced Direct Access (Enhanced Direct Access: The term ‘enhanced direct access’ was introduced to ...) whereby responsibilities have been devolved to the national level, increasing ownership and allowing for decision-making and management on specific projects/programmes to be made at the country or entity level. Acquiring Enhanced Direct Access requires broader institutional capacities of the National Designated Authority : A core interface and the main point of communica... and of the funding entities within the developing country.
International Access Entities (International Access Entities: UN agencies, multilateral development banks, inte...)
International Access Entities (International Access Entities: UN agencies, multilateral development banks, inte...) can include United Nations agencies, multilateral development banks, international financial institutions and regional institutions. The Fund considers these organizations to have the wide reach and expertise to handle a variety of climate change issues, including ones that cross borders and thematic areas. International Access Entities do not need to be nominated by developing country NDAs / focal points. There are benefits to working with international access entities, for example the access to larger and higher risk projects, however it is essential for the National Designated Authority : A core interface and the main point of communica... to ensure that all projects and programmes are country driven and go through stakeholder consultation and nationally mandated procedures.
