Strong, inclusive and sustainable low-emission economic development
The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) was founded in 2010 and is an intergovernmental treaty-based organization that supports developing countries to achieve sustainable and inclusive economic growth. The GGGI Strategy 2030 sets GGGI’s plan for supporting its more than 30 members and partners globally for transforming their national economies for environmentally sustainable and socially inclusive green growth. In 2017, the GCF and the GGGI signed a Framework Readiness and Preparatory Support Grant Agreement. Under this strategic partnership, the GGGI implements readiness projects in its member countries to improve access to GCF resources for transformational climate action.

"I am grateful for the GCF readiness support received through GGGI to enable us to build up our own technical capacity, explore the potential to unlock new capital through private sector mobilization and engagement, and shift our thinking into alignment with the Paris Agreement through our GCF Country Program within the framework of the National SDG 13 Climate Action Roadmap."

DAE Support for Accreditation
The Global Reach of GGGI
The Global Reach of GGGIThrough the implementation of GCF’s readiness projects, GGGI has guided national entities in Burkina Faso, Jordan, and Uganda to prepare and submit their applications for accreditation as Direct Access Entities (DAE) to the GCF. In Indonesia, the GGGI supported Kemitraan or ‘Partnership for Governance Reform’, a multi-donor trust fund, to become a DAE in November 2020. The GGGI is currently supporting the process of DAE accreditation for national entities in Colombia, Cote d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Fiji, Indonesia, Mexico, Mozambique, Myanmar, Paraguay, the Philippines, Togo, and Vanuatu.
Attract Climate Investment
The GGGI is implementing three GCP supported National Adaptation Plan (NAP) grants valued at USD 6.96 million. In Rwanda, GGGI is currently supporting the preparation of the NAP for submission to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), as well as building flood resilience and the capacity of the private sector to mainstream adaptation and resilience practices into their planning, design, and construction. In Sri Lanka, GGGI has enhanced the resilience of the most vulnerable sectors and strengthened the country´s capacity for sub-national implementation of its NAP.
Learning from each other’s experience
Countries can benefit from learning from the experience of readiness implementation in other countries, particularly in the same sub-region or region and with similar socioeconomic and ecological contexts, through the facilitation of South-South Cooperation or sharing of implementation experience by an international partner like GGGI. The GGGI’s support can also facilitate stakeholder participation and dialogue at the country level, as well as enhance national entity coordination to access climate financing from the GCF.
Only with the RPSP
Global Network and Partnerships

"The Government of Vanuatu is pleased to have collaborated with the GGGI on successful completion of two GCF Readiness funded projects, namely, “Readiness Support for the Development of the Vanuatu National Green Energy Fund” (NGEF) and the “Mobilizing Vanuatu’s Private Sector towards Climate Change Action”. The NGEF support project has subsequently contributed to formal establishment and operationalization of the Fund, which so far has mobilized over 2M USD for investments in renewable energy projects in rural off-grid areas of Vanuatu."
