The $8 billion Climate Investment Funds (CIF) accelerates climate action by empowering transformations in clean technology, energy access, climate resilience, and sustainable forests in developing and middle income countries. The CIF’s large-scale, low-cost, long-term financing lowers the risk and cost of climate financing. It tests new business models, builds track records in unproven markets, and boosts investor confidence to unlock additional sources of finance.
To increase the scale of climate change finance and support low-carbon, climate resilient growth in developing countries. The Green Climate Fund will finance projects and programmes in a range of developing countries, including the poorest and most vulnerable, through a range of financial instruments and terms designed to meet country priorities and needs. It will also leverage private finance in support of low-carbon, climate resilient development.
The NAMA Facility is targeted fund set up in 2012 by Germany and the UK to help finance measures that tackle and shift challenging sectors within a country’s climate mitigation action plans. Projects in these plans (their Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions Plans) funded by the NAMA Facility offer good potential for replication and are important building blocks towards implementing ambitious NDCs. The NAMA Facility is unique within the ICF for its open access competitive structure and projects are wide ranging in terms type (energy efficiency, transport, agriculture, renewables, waste) and geography (Asia, Africa and South and Central America) and noticeable for high level of country support.
The FCPF-C is a World Bank administered fund that is helping to build long-term reforms in forested countries that ultimately align incentives clearly towards sustainable forest management.
As core part of our Climate Partnerships strategy, SIP is a UK-branded private finance flagship programme in which ICF provides concessional financing for sustainable infrastructure projects. We are currently working with Inter-American Development Bank to focus on priority climate partnership countries in Latin America (Brazil, Colombia, Mexico & Peru).
The REDD Early Movers Programme is a global programme designed to reward pioneers in forest conservation and climate protection, providing conditional payments to countries or regions upon verified emission reductions from deforestation.
The project aims to raise the level of technical understanding of Carbon Capture, Usage and Storage (CCUS) within key developing countries and emerging economies with high emissions (such as South Africa, Mexico, Indonesia and China), leading to the establishment of the necessary policy frameworks and incentive structures to support commercial, large-scale CCUS demonstration and ultimately accelerate the deployment of CCUS.
UK is providing funding to a major new programme (Market Accelerator for Green Construction) with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) to build demonstration portfolios of green construction at scale, reducing emissions, mobilising new finance and inspiring markets to shift towards the new energy efficient buildings of the future.
The Transformative Carbon Asset Facility will target sector or policy wide programmes where the implementing country is planning to take climate mitigation action. This could be via regulations, fiscal policies, feed-in-tariff or incentives. As long as these plans are in line with the TCAF programme selection criteria, in collaboration with the implementing entity (normally a Government ministry) TCAF will design a methodology that pays for the verified emissions reductions of the programme above its intended ambition, giving targeted support to unlock the barriers to allow the increased ambition to be realised.
The Global Climate Partnership Fund finances energy efficiency and small scale renewable energy projects in developing countries whilst giving Technical Assistance to build the green lending capacity of local banks and reducing investment risk.
