Description

UN Environment, the UN Development Programme, the World Resources Institute, and GIZ, with the support of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building, and Nuclear Safety and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and are convening a side event during COP23 in Bonn. The side event will provide country perspectives on accessing and engaging with the Green Climate Fund.
