Green Recovery Challenge Fund

A capacity-building fund to support low-carbon transitions and a green, resilient and inclusive economic recovery across ODA-eligible countries.

The UK Government has partnered with ICF Consulting to deliver the Green Recovery Challenge Fund under the UK PACT (Partnering for Accelerated Climate Transitions) programme funded by UK International Climate Finance.

The story so far

In 2020, we began our search for projects that supported the acceleration of the low-carbon transition for ODA-eligible countries in Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Asia.

We wanted bold ideas that addressed specific low-carbon challenges. Ideas that were creative, innovative and scalable. Ideas that would promote gender equality and social inclusion and inspire future programmes to drive climate ambition at scale.

Through 2022, we will continue to support successfully funded projects. Want to learn more? Sign up for updates today.
