Forum becomes Green Climate Fund observer

10:59 am on 12 March 2016

The Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat says it has become the first Pacific organisation to be approved as an observer with the Green Climate Fund.

Earlier this week, the Cook Islands became the first Pacific country and Small Island Developing State to receive a readiness support grant from the GCF.

The Forum's Secretary General Dame Meg Taylor says the Forum will continue to provide support to help members strengthen their national systems to apply for the GCF's climate funding.
