Funding

The implementation of the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) is now well underway, but will require full support, including investment/funding for institutional, procedural, infrastructural and human capacity development. 

The main sources of GFCS funding thus far are Member’s contributions to the GFCS Trust Fund or through bilateral and multi-lateral investments for projects in selected countries or regions. In addition, various actors can support projects – listed in a compendium of GFCS projects – or designate their activities as contributing to the GFCS if they fulfill the criteria endorsed by the Intergovernmental Board on Climate Services (IBCS). As of June 2013, contributions and pledges total some CHF 29 million, mainly from GFCS Sponsors.

Full and sustainable implementation of the GFCS will mobilize a wide range of financing mechanism and development partners.
