The $1.2 billion Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR) supports developing countries and regions in building their adaptation and resilience to the impacts of climate change. First, the PPCR assists governments in integrating climate resilience into strategic development planning across sectors and stakeholder groups. Second, it provides concessional and grant funding to put the plans into action and pilot innovative public and private sector solutions.
The PPCR invests in some of the world’s most vulnerable countries. At the frontline of climate change are small island developing states (SIDS). The PPCR supported SIDS, with $250 million for nine Caribbean and Pacific island nations, 20 percent of PPCR resources. PPCR also invested more than $200 million for most vulnerable countries to upgrade climate data and services for climate-smart project design.
