The Green Climate Fund (“the Fund”) is a new multilateral fund created to make a significant and
ambitious contribution to the global efforts towards attaining the goals set by the international

promote the paradigm shift towards low-emission and climate-resilient development pathways by
providing support to developing countries to limit or reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and to
adapt to the impacts of climate change, taking into account the needs of those developing countries
particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change.
