The resource allocation framework of the Green Climate Fund will have to provide agreed principles and criteria for making transparent how decisions are taken on what will be financed. This will need to take into account the guiding principles of the Governing Instrument of the GCF. This paper analyses how the principle of ‘paradigm shift’ can be operationalized for mitigation related funding and develops options for allocation principles and indicators for decision-making.
