UN climate conference supports Salceda board
MetadataShow full item record
The United Nations Convention on Climate Change commended the Green Climate Fund leadership, under Albay Gov. Joey Salceda, for fulfilling the complex requirements for its operation and for raising an initial $10.2 billion in its first year. Salceda co-chaired the GCF board where he represented Southeast Asia and the developing countries. His German counterpart represented the developed countries. Their term ran from October 2013 to October 2014. The recently concluded UNFCCC Conference of the Parties held in late December in Lima, Peru made special mention of the GCF performance during its 20th session. The commendation was contained in the COP 20 Decision document, in response to the GCF 2013-2014 report. The GCF has now been equipped with the mechanics and financial requirements for its initial mobilization put in place during Salceda’s term.
