2012 Forum
2012 Forum

 

The Climate Investment Funds 2012 Partnership Forum, co-hosted with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), provided a unique opportunity for diverse stakeholders – governments, civil society, indigenous peoples, private sector, and others – to contribute to understand the linkages between climate change and development as they have been addressed within the context of the Climate Investment Funds (CIF). As all CIF programs (on clean technology, forest investments, climate resilience and scaling up renewable energy in low income countries) are moving into implementation of investments at the country level, the Forum focused on effective on-the-ground implementation, knowledge-building and sharing of lessons.

The Forum program was comprised of plenary sessions and a series of smaller parallel sessions that were intended to address the multiple interests of CIF stakeholders and provided for open discussions to explore ways to maximize the effectiveness of the CIF. The interactive format provided a platform for Forum participants to present their perspectives, experiences, and reflections on CIF strategic directions, results and impacts.
