Global negotiators and observers met for two days in Mexico City at the end of April to start their work of designing the future Green Climate Fund. The first meeting of the 40-member Transitional Committee (TC), which was tasked by the Cancun Agreements to come up with an effective and efficient global mechanism to scale up funding for developing countries for climate action, haggled over the leadership of the TC, its working arrangements and a concretized work plan for organizing and fulfilling its ambitious task by COP 17 in Durban, South Africa. This first analysis by Liane Schalatek (Heinrich Boell Foundation) describes options for and potential obstacles to the process.
