The Guideline on project proposals evaluation for getting access to climate financing of the Green Climate Fund serves as a platform for integrated approaches on the evaluation of project proposals, containing adaptation activities or mitigation measures. This manual contains step-by-step instructions for evaluation of project proposals, as well as criteria and indicative evaluative coefficients for further use in practice.
The Guideline on project proposal development for GCF is a practical tool, which presents and describes the process of preparing project proposals for receiving funding from the Green Climate Fund (GCF). It outlines the general requirements and principles on development of the project proposal, the expected climate change in Uzbekistan and the most likely estimates of their impact on the economy and population, along with approaches in selecting the most vulnerable fields and sectors of the economy, and justifying the priority and relevance of specific investment projects for adaptation and mitigation of climate change.
UNDP and UNEP jointly with the Center for hydrometeorological services “Uzhydromet” under the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Republic of Uzbekistan are implementing Green Climate Fund (GCF) Readiness programme in Uzbekistan. The objective of the GCF Readiness Programme is to support the Government of Uzbekistan in strengthening their national capacities to effectively and efficiently plan for, access, manage, deploy and monitor climate financing in particular through the GCF. These activities will be planned and implemented in line with national policies and priorities. The Programme targets two important aspects of the GCF approach, access to funds and private sector engagement, both of which require significant preparatory work before GCF financing will be possible at scale.
Funding of the Green Climate Fund through Simplified Approval Process is provided to climate change project proposals, submitted by the national accredited organization with direct access and the national authorized body, with focus on: a) mitigation of climate change by reducing or preventing greenhouse gas emissions; and b) adaptation to climate change. To speed up the process of reviewing project proposals, the Green Climate Fund decided to present to applicant-countries a simplified approval process of project proposals with funding up to USD 10 million.
The infographics "The review and approval process of project proposals in GCF" is a step-by-step algorithm of reviewing and approval of the climate project proposals of applicant countries, which are seeking funding from the Green Climate Fund. This revised and updated process was adopted at the 17th Board meeting of the Green Climate Fund. The scheme illustrates seven main stages: 1. Country and regional programmes, as well as programmes of accredited entities. 2. Identification and building projects pipeline. 3. Project concept development and submission. 4. Funding proposals. 5. Analysis and independent technical assessment, Secretariat’s recommendations to the Board. 6. Board decision. 7. Legal arrangements for approved proposals.
