Our Resource Partners

GGGI’s operations are made possible through the support of a growing number of resource partners that share the Institute’s goals and objectives, including governments, international institutions, private foundations. GGGI is an ODA-eligible and EU pillar-assessed international organization. As part of GGGI’s commitment to transparency, it publishes detailed information on its funding sources, funding amounts received, and the projects supported through its audited annual financial statements.

Resource partner profile: Republic of Korea

The Republic of Korea provides both core and earmarked funding to GGGI. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs provides annual core funding to retain its status as a contributing member, as defined by the Agreement on the Establishment of GGGI. The Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) provides earmarked funding it supports of GGGI’s Country Planning Frameworks, such as in the Philippines to mainstream climate resilience and inclusive green growth in the agricultural sector of Oriental Mindoro, and in the Pacific to increase access to energy through renewable technologies in rural areas in Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and Vanuatu. GGGI also partners with the Korea Forest Service on sustainable forest and landscape management, and the Korea Rural Economic Institute on climate smart agriculture.

Resource partner profile: New Zealand  

The New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) and GGGI launched a partnership in 2020 to support Pacific countries to plan effectively for low-emission, climate resilient futures. Through the partnership, GGGI will help Pacific countries to develop climate change policies, plans and investment road maps across a wide range of sectors – such as electricity, transport, agriculture, tourism, and urban planning. As countries set out their economic recovery strategies from the COVID-19 pandemic, there are opportunities to accelerate climate action and this partnership will utilize this crucial time to make change. There is an opportunity to build back ‘greener’, and opinion polls show that there is public support for that in COVID-19 recovery plans. Read more

Resource partner profile: Green Climate Fund   

The Green Climate Fund (GCF) and GGGI have formed a strategic partnership to bolster developing country capacities to deal with the unprecedented challenge of climate change. To ensure that GGGI remains a neutral adviser to governments, it carries out this work as a Readiness Delivery Partner. GGGI is not a GCF Accredited Entity that proposes and carries out climate finance projects that are approved by the GCF Board. Currently, 28 countries have requested GGGI as Readiness Delivery Partner and received approval to implement readiness projects in 25 countries. While GGGI is not an accredited entity, we have been working with our partner governments to develop funding proposals for submission to the GCF. The goal of the readiness work is, of course, for countries to access GCF’s climate finance, and GGGI is very pleased to have helped develop 8 funding proposals, 5 of which have already been approved (for Ethiopia, Rwanda, Fiji, Indonesia and Mongolia) worth over USD 246 million. GGGI has done this through institutional support to national DAEs, technical support on concept development, and conduct of feasibility studies. Read more
