The Climate Investment Funds (CIF), hosted at the World Bank and supported by the Multilateral Development Banks, are a pair of financing instruments designed to support low-carbon and climate resilient development. The CIF 2010 Partnership Forum provided one of the first opportunities for stakeholders, including NGOs, Indigenous Peoples and the private sector to inform the shape and design of the CIF programme areas.
Stakeholder Forum assisted the CIF Administration Unit in preparing and mobilising stakeholders for the Partnership Forum. We also produced a series of audio and visual podcasts that were recorded live at the Forum in which we caught up with different stakeholder groups, asked the big questions and engaged in some lively discussion.
