Project Description
According to GCF website, this project will help address this need by achieving a paradigm shift to standardize the use of science-based climate information. This is seen as a necessary base to underpin awareness raising and long-term policy planning around climate change. Further, this project will expand the use of Climate Information Services (CIS) in five targeted sectors: tourism, agriculture, infrastructure, water management and fisheries. Specific project goals include building technical capacity to harness and manage climate data, developing practical CIS tools, fostering their use and disseminating tailored climate information. GCF funding will contribute to greater understanding of climate patterns across time to ensure adaptation planning and policy implementation is informed by the right data.

If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may seek to address the issues raised by facilitating a problem-solving dialogue or, if that is not possible, conducting an independent investigation into whether the GCF has complied with its environmental and social policies. The IRM is newly created and is still in the process of developing its procedures and website. More information about the IRM and how you can file a complaint is forthcoming. You can contact the IRM at irm@gcfund.org.
