Executive Committee

Executive Committee members include two delegates from each of the major GCF Task Force regions (Brazil, Peru, Mexico, and Indonesia), two delegates from California, and one delegate representing at-large GCF Task Force members.

Executive Committee members are official GCF Task Force delegates appointed to serve a two-year term by a vote of members in each respective region. The Executive Committee appoints a rotating Chair from the region serving as the Chair of the GCF Task Force Annual Meeting.

Regional Coordination

Country Directors support regional coordination for clusters of member states and provinces in Brazil, Ecuador, Indonesia, Mexico, and Peru. Country Directors are housed within local NGOs and work directly with our members to identify needs, develop long-term strategic plans, and implement annual work plans.


The GCF Task Force global Secretariat supports and facilitates the work occurring within our member states and provinces. The Secretariat provides administrative oversight, connects members with partnership opportunities and assists in carrying out their strategic vision, and leads fundraising efforts for the GCF Task Force.

The Secretariat is housed at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Institute of the Environment and Sustainability and the Emmett Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at UCLA School of Law, in partnership with the Institute of Behavioral Science at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU Boulder). UCLA and CU Boulder provide opportunities for connection and collaboration within their multiple environmental and policy departments.
