“Financing Land Use Mitigation: A Practical Guide for Decision-Makers.” Prepared with support from cooperative agreement # S-LMAQM-13-CA-1128 with U.S. Department of State.

The Green Climate Fund (GCF) is the closest we have to a binding global decision on climate change. It will start providing $100 billion a year by 2020 to support climate change mitigation and adaptation. As all countries will have equal decision-making power in the Fund, the developing world will play a key role in designing the solutions stemming from this financing mechanism.
The goal of the partnership is to encourage effective adaptation by serving as an interim platform to catalyze action and foster communication among the various institutions and actors engaged in the effort to scale up adaptation and resilience around the world.
