CTF GOVERNANCE STRUCTURE

The CTF Trust Fund Committee is the decision-making body responsible for determining and overseeing the operations and activities of the CTF. Equal number of representatives from donor and recipient countries serve as decision-making members. Official Observers from stakeholder groups advocate on behalf of their constituents and promote transparency and efficient use of resources.

The responsibilities of the CTF Trust Fund Committee include approving CTF programming and pipeline priorities, operational criteria, and financing modalities; endorsing investments plans; approving allocation of CTF resources for programs and projects; and ensuring the strategic orientation of the CTF is guided by the principles of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.

"The CIF makes an effort to provide the means necessary to encourage transparency and good governance. This is accomplished through the involvement of all the stakeholders—civil society, local communities, private sector, MDBs, donor and recipient countries—and it is what enables us to take ownership of the CIF."
