The first meeting of the Transitional Committee for the design of the Green Climate Fund will take place:
28 - 29 April 2011 in Mexico City, Mexico
In order to scale up the provision of long-term financing for developing countries, Governments at COP 16 in Cancun decided to establish a Green Climate Fund. A Transitional Committee selected by Parties to the UNFCCC, which will design the details of the new fund, will meet for the first time from 28-29 April 200 in Mexico City, Mexico.
The Transitional Committee comprises 40 members, with 15 members from developed country Parties and 25 members from developing country Parties.
