Since 2008, the CIF has been leading efforts to empower transformations in the energy, climate resilience, transport and forestry sectors. We have been helping to fill the financing gap for climate action, providing $8.3 billion to catalyze and scale up resilience, forestry, and clean energy investments in 72 countries and over 300 projects across the globe.
CIF investments provide urgently needed resources to help countries manage the challenges of climate change and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
We also take on the real and perceived investment risks with a unique concessional financing model that provides money at below market-based rates in order to attract other investors. This type of financing is necessary to push new technologies, create new markets and to attract private sector financing and increasingly to support investments in climate resilience and adaptation, especially in the poorest and most vulnerable countries.
Our 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.
