Ongoing challenges in accessing the GCF for NAPs from past assessments 1/2  Understanding latest requirements for GCF readiness proposals;  Ensuring that readiness proposals are: ❖ Aligned with the COP guidance and NAP guidelines ❖ Address both objectives of the process to formulate and implement NAPs, as well as the guiding principles  How to stage activities of the process over time in manageable components in order to accommodative the iterative and flexible nature of the process;  How address support needs for a long-term process through limited project-type funding that is one-off and over a fixed timeframe  How build/develop capacity of national teams to prepare high-quality proposals that would be accepted by the GCF
  5. 5.
