In this draft discussion note, prepared for Pre-GCF Board Meeting Luncheon Discussion on “Country Ownership and Enhancing Direct Access” on 17 February 2014 convened by the Indonesian host of the sixth GCF Board meeting, Benito Müller and William Pizer present some lessons from existing practice regarding two closely related devolved access modalities, namely the programmatic approaches and enhanced direct access.

To illustrate these lessons, they use a number of Exhibits contributed by Sophie de Coninck, Dan Morrow, Gonzalo Serrano de la Rosa, and Anju Sharma.”
