Questions about the application process

    Why are there two application forms, and which one should I use?

    There are two application forms: one for governments and one for TA partners and other organizations (e.g. NGOs, UN agencies, academic institutions, etc.). Only individuals working for the government of a host country should use the government application; all other applicants should use the TA partner application.

    The main difference in the applications is understanding the nature of the relationship between the TA provider (if one is specified) and the host country. Both forms ask about the nature of the commitment being made by the host country to include cooling in their NDC. If you are unsure which application form is best suited to your organization, please email

Selected applicants will be notified of likely funding no later than early November 2020, with the exact timing dependent on the certainty of the inclusion of new cooling commitments in the country’s enhanced NDC. Final funding will also be contingent on the inclusion of new cooling commitments in your country’s enhanced NDC.

    How will the funding be provided?

    Funding will be distributed in tranche payments to TA partners between 2021 and 2023. While the host government needs to indicate their intent to include cooling in their 2020 NDC, K-CEP funding is to be delivered to the partner organizations, not the governments themselves.
