The Climate Investment Funds (CIF) were established in 2008 to mobilize resources and trigger investments for low-carbon climate resilient development in select middle income and developing countries. To date, 14 contributor countries have pledged over US$ 8.5 billion to the CIF, which is expected to leverage an additional $61 billion in co-financing for mitigation and adaptation interventions at an unprecedented scale in 72 recipient countries.
Under its Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR), CIF has supported some of the most vulnerable countries in the world to improve their capacity in providing reliable hydromet services, including Dominica, Grenada, Haiti, Jamaica, Mozambique, Nepal, Niger, Papua New Guinea, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Tajikistan. With total funding of more than $300 million, including co-financing, these investments cover all five components of the hydromet value chain: observation and monitoring; data and information management; research, forecasting, and modeling; service development and delivery; and training and capacity building.
