The Development Finance Corporation takes a significant step forward in its commitment to combat climate change by officially submitting its accreditation application to the Green Climate Fund (GCF) on January 31, 2024. This landmark move, positions DFC to access up to US $50 million in Green Climate Funds, empowering the organization to spearhead transformative initiatives in the realm of sustainable development and environmental protection. The GCF, established to assist developing countries in addressing climate change through mitigation and adaptation efforts, serves as a crucial resource in advancing global climate action.
