RESOURCE

The publication outlines the minimum fiduciary standards and direct access requirements of the AF and GEF and describes the details of their application processes.

It shows potential accredited institutions (Project Agencies; National, Regional and Multilateral Implementing Agencies) the minimum requirements that must be fulfilled, and provides examples of demonstrating compliance with these requirements in order to become accredited for direct access. Case studies of Belize and Jamaica provide explanations and details of the supporting documentation submitted during the AF accreditation process.
