Los pueblos indígenas y el Fondo Verde para el Clima Indigenous Peoples and the Green Climate Fund
In 2010, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) established the Green Climate Fund (GCF) as its financial operating entity to disburse funds for low emission and climate resilient projects and programmes developed by the public and private sectors.
The Fund was established during the 16th meeting of the Conference of Parties (COP) of the climate change convention in Cancun, Mexico. It aims to promote a paradigm shift by funding both mitigation and adaptation projects to contribute to the sustainable development of developing countries. It was envisioned to spend half of its fund for adaptation projects, half of which is for adaptation in most vulnerable countries like least developed countries (LDCs), African states and small island developing states (SIDS); and the other half for mitigation projects.
