The occasion will be a formal pledging conference in Berlin for the Green Climate Fund (GCF).

World leaders agreed to create the GCF in the 2009 Copenhagen Accord as a mechanism to combat global climate change by helping developing countries to achieve sustainable economic growth while enhancing their resilience to climate impacts.
