“…the Partnership Forum allows for people to come together, to talk, to get to know what we’re doing, but most importantly, it’s a starting point for a conversation. I hope that the new participants come out of the Forum and continue the relationship with those [partners] they’ve made.”

- Samuel Tumiwa, Deputy Representative of the Asian Development Bank in Washington, DC. 

Opportunity to learn
Some 40+ development experts, business leaders, and prominent climate change thinkers will present lessons on managing climate change programs, unlocking finance, and building partnerships for low carbon, climate resilient development. The Forum will feature special private sector sessions, as well as interactive discussions on technical and scientific approaches to climate change. 
 
Opportunity to share
A wealth of CIF knowledge will be gathered in one space! Stakeholders from the CIF’s 48 pilot countries will share their experiences on what it takes to achieve climate-smart development results. The Forum’s Knowledge Bazaar will provide the optimum setting to exchange ideas, participate in interactive learning activities, and deepen lesson-sharing.
 
Opportunity to network
There will be plenty of time to meet and mingle with the some 400 climate change policy-makers, entrepreneurs, researchers, investors, and practitioners from government, civil society, business, and indigenous peoples and local communities. The Forum is the space to make new contacts, develop new relationships, and unlock new opportunities. 
 
The Partnership Forum is preceded by the UNFCCC Standing Committee on Finance Forum 2014 on June 21-22. 
 
Since the CIF was founded in 2008, the Partnership Forum has been its flagship learning event. Read more about past Partnership  Forums and the evolution of the CIF and the climate change agenda.
