Towards A Strategic Framework on Climate Change for the World ...

Proposed Climate Investment Funds (CIFs) Recap Katherine Sierra Vice President, Sustainable Development Network The World Bank April 14, 2008 1 Principles Core mission of the MDBs is growth and poverty reduction MDBs have role to play in ensuring access of developing countries to adequate financial resources and appropriate technology for climate change Activities financed by funds should be based on country-led programmatic approach and integrated into country-owned

development strategies UN is the appropriate body for broad policy setting on climate change Guided by principles of UNFCCC and support Bali Action Plan MDBs should remain accountable to their governing bodies 2 Climate Investment Funds CIFs aim to: Provide incentives for scaled-up action and transformational change Promote international cooperation on climate change to support progress towards a post-2012 agreement Provide experience and lessons through learningby-doing

3 Climate Investment Funds CIFs will: Utilize skills and capabilities of MDBs to deliver financing at significant scale to unleash the potential of the public and private sectors to address climate change Complement other multilateral financial mechanisms, such as GEF and Adaptation Fund Promote partnerships at the country level with others (UNDP, UNEP, CSOs) 4 Consultations to Date Meeting of Interested Donors in Paris

Missions to range of recipient countries Briefings and outreach at UN Bangkok Climate Change Talks Meetings with UNFCCC and representatives of the UN agencies and programs (continuing) On-going dialogue with GEF IFC organized meetings with private financial institutions and private energy companies primarily related to the power industry Meetings with NGOs Recipient Meeting 5 Key Messages from Consultations Maintain dialogue with the UNFCCC - link between the CIF and the Bali Action Plan should be made clear should not prejudice negotiations CIF should ensure strong recipient country inclusion

in the governance at the fund level Build links to the GEF and relevant UN agencies, particularly blending CIF investments with UN country level operations for policy, capacity building, and technical assistance work Programs need to be country-led Important message: funds need to be additional 6 Key Messages from Consultations Clean Technology Fund criteria based on transformative impact rather than ex-ante list of high emitting countries Define gap to be addressed by the Forest Investment Fund Pilot Program for Climate Resilience should assure strong link with the Adaptation Fund

Simplify structure of multiple funds and ensure expeditious processes 7 Changes in Most Recent Proposal Funds to support dialogue with UNFCCC Structure reduced to two funds New governance proposal Forests financing on slower track Strong links between PPCR and Adaptation Fund 8 Dialogue With UNFCCC Full recognition that UN is the appropriate body for broad policy setting

Discussions with UNFCCC Secretariat Funds aimed at supporting UNFCCC process by providing knowledge and learning-bydoing Commitment for funds to be reviewed in light of final agreement and consideration given to revision or sunset, as appropriate 9 Simplified Structure of Two Funds Proposal now for two funds: Clean Technology Fund Strategic Climate Fund 10 Simplified Structure of Two Funds Governance Climate Investment Funds

collaboration and synergies among MDBs on climate change SCF proposed structure would allow donor to direct its contributions to CTF and/or SCF programs Each SCF program would have its own oversight committee representing contributors and recipients of the program 13 Governance Principles of Equal representation of contributors and recipients on trust fund committees Representation of WBG and other MDBs Observers from GEF and UN agencies with related mandate

Decision making by consensus 14 Forests Agreement on importance of increasing financing for sustainable forest management Working with GEF, UNFF and collaborative partners to map out what is available, what are gaps Potential for SCF program or fund to be assessed 15 Proposed Pilot Program for Climate Resilience First SCF program is the PPCR

Improve climate resilience in pilot countries, building on National Adaptation Programs of Action (NAPAs), to explore practical ways to mainstream climate resilience into core development planning and budgeting Transmit lessons learned to the Board of the Adaptation Fund, IDA and similar programs in MDBs 16 Links Between PPCR and Adaptation Fund Recognizes Adaptation Fund as Kyoto Protocol instrument Oversight committee of the PPCR to include all contributors and pilot countries Seat on the oversight committee for the developing country Chair or Co-chair of the Adaptation Fund Other partners invited as observers, including MDBs,

UNDP, UNEP, GEF, and civil society Expert group to advise on country selection based on transparent criteria Adaptation Fund Board invited to nominate members to be part of expert group Program to close at end of pilot 17 Objective and Program for Design Meeting Receive guidance and specific comments on general and detailed design to facilitate final round of consultations and final design meeting in May Monday, April 14, 2008 Climate Investment Funds Feedback and Updates followed by General Discussion Clean Technology Fund Business Model for Country Public Sector Investments Clean Technology Fund Business Model for Private Sector Engagement Governance and structure of the CTF
