June 2013 - October 2013

The project provided background research on selected aspects related to the allocation of resources in the Green Climate Fund (GCF) for the German Bank for Reconstruction (KfW). It developed a set of short background studies related to procedural issues, how to define and operationalize 'paradigm shift' and on possible allocation principles for adaptation and mitigation.

The project resulted in four background papers:

M. Jung: Design elements of the GCF allocation mechanism

M. Vieweg & I. Noble: Incentivizing Paradigm Shift Within the GCF Allocation Framework

M. Vieweg: Possible Allocation Principles and Criteria - Mitigation

I. Noble: Possible Allocation Principles and Criteria - Adaptation
