El Fondo Verde para el Clima (GCF, por sus siglas en inglés) es un fondo establecido dentro del Marco de Cambio Climático de las Naciones Unidas para asistir países en desarrollo en las prácticas de adaptación y mitigación al cambio climático. Debido que “las naciones que menos contribuyen a menudo están a riesgo de perder más” dijo Barack Obama en 2014, el GCF promete proveer instrumentos significativos, relevantes y efectivos para concertar un esfuerzo global de afrontar el cambio climático.
