Report of the Green Climate Fund to the Conference of the Parties. Note by the secretariat.
The Conference of the Parties (COP), by decision 3/CP.17, approved the governing instrument for the Green Climate Fund (GCF). The governing instrument provides, inter alia, that annual reports of the GCF Board will be submitted to the COP for its consideration. The arrangements between the COP and the GCF1 provide that the annual reports of the GCF shall include information on the implementation of policies, programme priorities and eligibility criteria provided by the COP, including information on the extent to which COP guidance has been adhered to by the Board of the GCF. The arrangements also stipulate the specific information the GCF is to include in its reports. In response to that provision, the GCF secretariat has submitted the report in the annex dated 4 September 2015. It is reproduced here as submitted, without formal editing. The governing instrument for the GCF also provides that the GCF Board will, in order to ensure accountability to the COP and pursuant to Article 11, paragraph 3, of the Convention, receive guidance from the COP, including on matters related to policies, programme priorities and eligibility criteria, and matters related thereto.
