Development of a Results-based Business Model for Climate Adaptation and Mitigation Projects
The Green Climate Fund was established by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in an effort to scale-up and streamline funding for low-emissions and climate-resilient development internationally.
Abt Associates staff assisted the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) by evaluating options for the development of a results-based management framework for the UNFCCC-funded Green Climate Fund.
Abt staff developed a white paper for the Green Climate Fund Secretariat that outlines a strategic framework for ensuring that the fund’s funding activities meet the needs of both developed/donor countries and developing/recipient countries. The framework outlines an approach to funding that is based on results, transparency, and accountability.
The white paper addressed general considerations for a result-based management framework; identified project result areas, targets, and performance indicators; suggested other key criteria for meeting the Green Climate Fund’s objectives; discussed modalities for monitoring, evaluation, and reporting; and proposed roles and responsibilities in results management.
The technical material was presented to the Green Climate Fund board and was favorably received. The board incorporated a number of the findings and recommendations in its decisions about how to move forward in developing a business management framework.
