Linking the Clean Development Mechanism with the Green Climate Fund: Insights from Practitioners and Decision Makers in Africa

This publication gathers perspectives from practitioners and decision-makers in Africa on whether and how the Green Climate Fund (GCF) could make use of elements of the Clean Development Mechanism’s (CDM) pipeline of activities and infrastructure to strengthen the robustness of its funding activities, and facilitate the allocation of funding to mitigation activities in Africa. Views expressed are based on interviews with stakeholders, including CDM project developers, GCF Accredited Entities, governmental focal points for the GCF and the CDM, the UNFCCC Secretariat, and the GCF Board and Secretariat, amongst others.
