The role civil society plays in monitoring the Green Climate Fund (GCF) is crucial to make the best use of much-needed climate resources, while also avoiding the worse impacts brought up by false solutions.

The GCF Watch is a civil society initiative, led from the Global South, created to improve access to information on GCF matters and enable better public follow-up and supervision of the GCF.

In this second version of the GCF Watch International Webinar Series, experts from across the globe will come together in three webinars to discuss the GCF, the work being done, and ways in which you can contribute to this important effort. 

Each session will include expert presentations followed by an open space for conversation among attendees and panelists.

In this first session, we talked about the GCF Watch Platform and the opportunities it provides, we looked into the last two board meetings that have happened during 2022, and we discussed some of the key topics that are keeping CSO busy around the GCF.



  • Florencia Ortúzar, Interamerican Association for Environmental Defense (AIDA): Introduction to the webinar series.
  • Kairos de la Cruz, Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities (ICSC): The GCF Watch Platform.
  • Erika Lennon, Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL): Takeaways from the last board meetings and key topics for CSOs.
