  • Why DCAP was created?
    • To provide a community-driven knowledge sharing platform for climate change stakeholders to share relevant information, lessons learned and best practices across regions, countries, sectors, and disciplines
    • To allow Green Climate Fund’s (GCF) National Designated Authorities (NDAs) and Direct Access Entities (DAEs) to tap into targeted technical support from expert individuals or firm’s volunteers with the overall aim of better preparing countries to access GCF resources and bring forward high quality projects and programmes. These targeted technical supports include high demand areas such as: translations, concept note and funding proposal review, modelling, risk assessment, stakeholder consultation, ESS, Gender, monitoring and evaluation.
  • What are the advantages of being a partner institution?
    • Become a direct contributor to the climate action, by supporting developing countries and their institutions to build their local capacities, through knowledge sharing and providing expertise;
    • Maximize collaborative effort in tackling climate change and strengthening capacities from a bottom-up approach;
    • Improve South-South and North-South cooperation;
    • Provide an opportunity for national and inter-regional collaborations opportunities;
    • Enhance the flow of private sector human resources through targeted corporate social responsibility;
    • Promote the knowledge materials you have developed for the benefit of developing countries; and
    • Promote and motivate individuals and institutions to make a better use of their expertise to transform projects into a reality in developing countries.
  • Who are the target users for DCAP?
    All climate change stakeholders including, GCF National Designated Authorities, GCF Accredited Entities (particularly DAE), skill-based volunteers, climate experts, finance modelling experts, private and public sector entities, civil society organizations (CSOs), non-governmental organizations (NGOs), think tanks, among others.
  • What are GCF National Designated Authorities (NDAs)?
    An NDA is a country’s main interface for engaging with GCF and plays a key role in supporting the mobilization of GCF resources in the country.
    The role of the NDA includes: strategic oversight of a country’s priorities, convening national stakeholders, providing nomination letters for direct access entities, providing no-objection letters for projects and programmes, and approving readiness support.
  • What are GCF Direct Access Entities (DAEs)?
    DAEs are regional, national and sub-national institutions that have went through GCF process of “accreditation” designed to assess financial, environmental & social safeguards, and gender capability to implement GCF-financed projects and programmes.
  • How does DCAP volunteering work?
    We connect NDAs and DAEs to volunteers using a matchmaking online system.
  • How does the volunteering activities are implemented?
    Volunteers are not requested to travel. The support is expected to be done online with calls when needed.
    Nevertheless, onsite work can be performed when mutual arrangements are made between the volunteer and the recipient of the support (see terms and conditions).
  • How can I participate as NDAs/DAEs?
    NDAs and DAEs can recruit volunteers by posting a need and get notifications from interested volunteers.
    NDAs and DAEs will have to register their institution to DCAP website to be able to post their needs.
  • How can I participate as a volunteer?
    Interested individuals can register or search and apply to volunteering opportunities from GCF NDAs and DAEs that meet their interests and capacities through the volunteering section on DCAP.
    Interested institutions for volunteer work need to contact the DCAP team to register their members as volunteers.
  • How does DCAP knowledge sharing platform work?
    We provide access to DCAP knowledge platform viewers to the latest knowledge and data on climate change across regions, countries, sectors and disciplines. For institutions, we provide a space to disseminate their insights and experiences to the bigger climate change community to aid decision-making and support them increasing the quality of their projects, enhance their knowledge, among others.
  • Who can share knowledge?
    Anyone that has relevant information and materials linked to the subjects and sectors of DCAP.
  • What kind of materials can be shared?
    All relevant climate-related knowledge materials, such as documents, videos, best practices, tools, training items, among others.
