UNU co-hosts Green Climate Fund meeting
The United Nations University (UNU) and the Government of Japan will co-host the Second Meeting of the Transitional Committee for the Design of the Green Climate Fund, at UNU Headquarters in Tokyo, on 13 and 14 July 2011. This meeting will seek to advance the design of the Green Climate Fund, a major multilateral funding mechanism aimed at helping developing countries to mitigate the effects of climate change.
This meeting, organized by the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Secretariat, aims to develop and refine key operational documents on the Fund’s institutional design. These will be recommended for approval during the next round of international climate change negotiations (COP17) in Durban, South Africa, later this year (28 Nov. to 9 Dec.).
