GCF’s Independent Redress Mechanism
The Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) addresses complaints by people who believe they are negatively affected or may be affected by projects or programmes funded by the Green Climate Fund (GCF). The IRM also accepts requests for reconsideration from developing countries whose funding proposals have been denied by the GCF Board.
The IRM aims to provide recourse to affected people in a way that is fair, effective and transparent, and enhances the performance of GCF and its projects and programmes. The IRM offers problem solving and compliance processes as a means to redress. Compliance processes are undertaken only when a project or programme of the GCF potentially has not complied with GCF's policies and procedures. These include environmental and social safeguards.
As an independent body, the IRM reports directly to the GCF Board. Learn more about our work
