Paris Climate Agreement Green Fund

The Fund is also required to provide “balanced” support for adjustment and mitigation, although developing countries are minded that insufficient adjustment funding is available, particularly when the Fund depends on the leverage of private sector financing. [19] The EMB`s activities are consistent with developing countries` priorities through the principle of developing country responsibility, and the Fund has established a direct approach to enable national and sub-national organizations to obtain funding directly and not solely through international mediators. At its board meeting in South Korea in March 2015, the GCF opposed an explicit ban on fossil fuel projects, effectively financing coal-fired power plants. Japan, China and Saudi Arabia rejected the ban. [26] [27] U.S. President Obama forced the United States to contribute $3 billion to the fund. In January 2017, during his last three days in office, Obama initiated the transfer of a second tranche of $500 million to the Fund, which resulted in a $2 billion maturing. In announcing the U.S. exit from the Paris Agreement on June 1, 2017, U.S. President Donald Trump also criticized the Green Climate Fund and called it a program to redistribute wealth from rich to poor countries. [12] AFD will spend at least EUR 3 billion on the development of renewable energy in Africa over the period 2016-2020, which is part of the commitment of 5 billion euros per year in 2020. To date, France`s contribution amounts to 46 projects, representing 2.2 billion euros, or 1.3 GW of new capacity and the connection of more than 2 million people. The credit is intended to help set up the African Renewable Energy Initiative (AREI), which is expected to provide 10GW to Africa by 2020 and 300GW in renewable energy by 2030.

The Green Climate Fund is the largest international fund that helps developing countries take action to combat climate change. This is a critical part of the Paris agreement, but the GCF is currently facing a crisis of confidence. In 2019, countries are expected to make a new round of commitments to the CWG, so the Fund needs to get back into shape very quickly.
