The CIFs are a pair of funds – the Clean Technology Fund (CTF) and the Strategic Climate Fund (SCF) – aimed at helping developing countries pilot low-emissions and climate-resilient development. Each fund is governed by a Trust Fund Committee with equal representation from contributor and recipient countries. The CTF Trust Fund Committee oversees the Fund’s operations, provides strategic direction, and approves and oversees programming and projects. The SCF Trust Fund Committee advises strategic direction for three targeted programs: (1) the Forest Investment Program (FIP), (2) the Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR), and (3) the Scaling up Renewable Energy Program (SREP). Each of these programs is governed by its own subcommittee.
Representatives from civil society, the private sector, indigenous peoples’ groups, the Global Environment Facility, United Nations Environment Program, United Nations Development Program, and United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, are invited to select representatives to participate as active observers in meetings of the SCF Trust Fund Committee and the three subcommittees.
