This report discusses different legislative approaches that governments can implement to curb the impact of plastic pollution.

This paper discusses how understanding the domestic political economy of climate governance is critical for developing informed strategies to build and sustain political ambition.

The assessment can also help users identify political barriers to more equitable climate action and identify reforms that may strengthen inclusion and accountability.

This paper is based on interviews with representatives from national, regional and international entities accredited to the GCF, nationally designated authorities, and members of the GCF Secretariat. The authors also reviewed GCF publications including board documents, manuals, and policies along with other academic literature reviewing direct access and the GCF’s operations. All data reported in this paper is as of the GCF 27th board meeting on November 10th-November 13th, 2020. In the direct access category, there is a diversity in size, scope, and type of entities, which means that some of the issues and challenges they face differ. Nonetheless, interviews with entities revealed that there are common problems these entities encountered both internally and with the GCF when trying to get projects approved.
