Steps to Access & Application Procedure

Access to resources provided by Canada to multilateral and regional organizations is based on the rules and guidelines of those organizations. Countries seeking information should contact representatives of those organizations.

In addition to any proposals that may be communicated through existing climate change channels, we encourage countries interested in exploring opportunities for bilateral climate change related support to consider identifying them during regular bilateral consultations with Global Affairs Canada.
