The Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) has allocated financing towards the cost of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) Readiness Support for Strengthening Belize Private Sector Access to Climate Finance Project and intends to apply a portion of the proceeds of this financing to eligible payments under a contract for which this invitation is issued. The financing shall not be used for the purpose of any payment to persons or entities, or for any import of goods, if such payment or import, to the knowledge of CDB, is prohibited by a decision of the United Nations Security Council taken under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations. No party other than CDB shall derive any rights from the financing or have any claim to the proceeds of the financing.

Belize is seeking to scale-up funding to support its National Climate Change Strategies and Policies. This will be done by engaging Small and Medium Size Enterprises to build their capacity to access funding from the GCF.
