A readiness and training support program was implemented by the GCF to increase country engagement and build capacity (or “readiness”) of national authorities to access the Fund. This program can provide support for organizations applying for accreditation to the GCF. Under the program, support in preparation for the access is available to potential national organizations seeking accreditation as well as the existing organizations with direct access to the development of future projects and programs portfolio. Support is provided to raise awareness of accreditation processes and standards, analyze institutional gaps, and develop personalized capacity building plans to address identified gaps. A request for support in preparing for accreditation should be sent through the DNA (Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan).
