There is relatively little funding remaining to be approved from this Fund. It is unclear if it will be replenished, although there are strong reasons for climate change adaptation to remain a priority activity under the GEF. Project proposal templates can be found on 22 the GEF website.
Medium-sized Projects (MSP), which are those under USD 2 million, enjoy a streamlined application process, as compared to Full-sized Projects (FSP), which are those over USD 2 million.
For FSPs, the process begins with a Project Identification Form (PIF) or project concept, which once approved is followed by a CEO Endorsement Form that includes development of a full-sized project document. MSPs may start directly with the CEO Endorsement Form. Once the GEF CEO endorses the project, the funding is released to the Implementing Agency
