With the establishment of the CIF in 2008, a novel approach to development planning and financing was also introduced - the programmatic approach. This approach divides development planning into two phases: programming and implementation. The programming phase is used to develop an investment plan that targets investments which are in line with, and reinforce, national development priorities. The investment plan is developed through constructive consultations between the country government, multilateral development banks and key stakeholders, including civil society, indigenous peoples and the private sector. Such an inclusive approach helps to mainstream an understanding of climate change in society. Following the programming phase upon approval and endorsement of the investment plan, work shifts toward implementation and making the projects a reality. Included below are all of the plans so far developed and approved for implementation.
