FIP GOVERNANCE STRUCTURE

The FIP Sub-Committee is the decision-making body responsible for overseeing the operations and activities of the FIP. 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.

Responsibilities of the FIP Sub-Committee include approving FIP programming priorities, operational criteria, and financing terms and modalities; selecting countries to participate in the FIP; endorsing investments plans; approving allocation of FIP resources for programs and projects; and ensuring complementarity between FIP activities and those of other development partners.

"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."
