The briefing describes how to include some important elements that have been proven to enhance the quality of GCF project concepts and proposals, based on lessons learned from successful proposals. It is targeted at Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs) that intend to pursue applications for GCF funding. Project proponents may find this briefing to be a useful guide during the development stage of GCF proposals.

In some cases, including these key elements in a proposal will help project proponents respond to the related investment criteria. The elements are meant to provide additional guidance beyond how to address the investment criteria, recognising that these elements are related to the criteria.
