Green Climate Fund’s multibillion-dollar portfolio while navigating the highly political fund through its first replenishment process.

With less than four months left to go, Glemarec and his colleagues are already busy working on aligning replenishment with the broader framework of U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres’ climate summit, which will take place in New York. United States, this September.
