Environmental and social safeguards reports and documents


Environmental and Social Management System (ESMS)

This Environmental and Social Management System (ESMS) is prepared by COFIDES (as Acreditted Entity, AE) and by GAWA (as Executive Entity, EE) and disclosed in advance of the GCF Board consideration of the Funding Proposal in line with the GCF's Information Disclosure Policy. Its purpose is to enhance the transparency of the Funded Activity. 

Any documentation which is attached to this ESMS has been prepared by the AE and EE, and authorization from the latter has been given for public release. GCF's Secretariat has reviewed the attached documentation as provided by the applicant and considers it of adequate quality to be released to the public, but does not endorse the content.

Indegenous Peoples Policy Framework (IPPF)

The Indegenous Peoples Policy Framework (IPPF) has been been prepared in support of the Funding Proposal “Kuali Fund-GCF” by COFIDES to the Green Climate Fund (GCF) as an appendix to Annex 6 (ESMS) and it should be read in conjunction with that document. The implementation of the IPPF is inextricably linked to the implementation of the ESMS.
