The proposed Project aims at mobilizing concessional finance from the Green Climate Fund (GCF) to promote the efficiency in the production and use of energy in Argentina, in order to contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and the creation of a more conductive financing environment for investing in sustainable energy (SE) projects in the long term. GCF reimbursable resources will be channeled through a sovereign loan to the Republic of Argentina and will be executed by the Banco de Inversión y Comercio Exterior S.A.(BICE)3 , Argentina’s national development bank (NDB), and blended with BICE’s own resources to provide financing at adequate terms and conditions for small and medium enterprise (SME) 4 sub-projects in specific SE technologies (biomass, biogas and energy efficiency).

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF GREEN CLIMATE FUND
The Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) addresses complaints by people who believe they are negatively affected or may be affected by projects or programmes funded by the Green Climate Fund (GCF). The complainant can raise issues related to any of GCF’s policies and procedures, including those relating to social and environmental issues, indigenous peoples, gender, and information disclosure, among others. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may seek to address the issues raised by facilitating problem solving or conducting a compliance process. You can learn more about the Independent Redress Mechanism and how to file a complaint at https://irm.greenclimate.fund/.
