The Climate Investment Funds (CIF) were established in 2008 to mobilize resources and trigger. The $8.3 billion Climate Investment Funds (CIF) is providing 72 developing and middle-income countries with urgently needed resources to manage the challenges of climate change and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Since 2008, the CIF has been leading efforts to empower transformations in the energy, climate resilience, transport and forestry sectors. CIF concessional financing offers flexibility to test new business models and approaches, build track records in unproven markets, and boost investor confidence to unlock additional finance from other sources, particularly the private sector and the multilateral development banks that implement CIF funding. Total CIF pledges of $8.3 billion are expected to attract an additional $58 billion of co-financing for a portfolio of over 300 projects and counting.
Most recently, looking to the future, CIF’s trust fund committee members have invited a thorough review of CIF with a view to making this vehicle even more effective as a mechanism for deploying public finance to accelerate the flow of capital into climate-related activities.
The CIF’s success is premised on a solid partnership with national governments, citizen groups and communities, private sector sponsors, the CIF governing bodies, and the five multinational development banks that serve as co-financiers and implementing agencies of the CIF.
