Local stakeholder engagement (LSE) is one of the most important features of the Climate Investment Funds (CIF), and a key issue for climate finance more broadly. This evaluation aims to better understand how LSE was envisioned and implemented in the CIF governance, country investment planning, and the implementation of investment plans. It identifies challenges, successes, and lessons that can increase the effectiveness of CIF’s LSE approach in current and future CIF programming. It also highlights good practice examples for effective LSE that could benefit other climate funds, multilateral development banks, countries, and local stakeholders, seeking to promote effective LSE in their governance and operations.
