SCF GOVERNANCE STRUCTURE

The SCF Trust Fund Committee is the decision-making body responsible for determining and overseeing the operations and activities of the SCF, which comprises three targeted programs aimed at specific climate change challenges or sectoral responses: FIP, PPCR, and SREP. 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 SCF Trust Fund Committee is responsible for approving SCF programs and eligibility criteria, ensuring the SCF's strategic orientation is guided by the principles of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, and establishing a sub-committee to govern each SCF program.

"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."
