The Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) is the independent complaint mechanism for a person or people who have been or believe they are likely to be adversely affected by a project or programme funded by the Green Climate Fund. 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
