CIF tracks CTF performance to ensure progress, learning and results in scaling up low carbon technologies. We also tell the stories behind the data – of the impact on people or policies on the ground.


The CIF monitors and reports on the Clean Technology Fund's (CTF) contributions to avoiding greenhouse gas emissions and increasing finance for low carbon development, supply of renewable energy, access to low carbon public transport, and energy efficiency. Implementing MDBs annually collect, aggregate, and report data on these indicators for all approved projects.

Large infrastructure projects such as those financed by CTF take time to implement and ramp up to full operational potential. The results reported thus far reflect the nature of this project development cycle, as well as projects’ varying stages of implementation. Over time, actual results—annual and cumulative—will increase, reflecting CTF’s true impact on the ground.


The CTF portfolio is maturing, with 85 CTF projects ($4.7 billion in CTF funding) now reporting on results. Targets and achieved results are expected to increase as more projects begin implementation and mature.


The following analysis is based on the 2018 CTF Results Report, which includes results reported from 85 projects in 18 countries during the period from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017 (AfDB, ABD, EBRD, IDB, and IFC) or July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018 (IBRD).

Annual target: GHG emission reductions and energy savings
Cumulative target: Co-financing and installed capacity
Target upon completion: Passengers per day
