UNDP (2011) Blending Climate Finance Through National Climate Funds
An important tool that can help countries to make the most of climate finance is a National Climate Fund (NCF). An NCF is a country-driven mechanism that supports the collection, blending, coordination of, and accounting for climate finance at the national level. This guidebook presents a process for designing and establishing an NCF and provides a simple, robust and transparent method for meaningful stakeholder engagement. In this way, countries are better equipped to manage climate finance and achieve results.
