This evaluation seeks to understand the concept of the Climate Investment Funds’ (CIF) programmatic approach and how it has been applied. The evaluation aims to inform future enhancements to the programmatic approach in CIF recipient countries and identify good practice examples for the benefit of other climate finance mechanisms.

The CIF’s programmatic approach brings systems-level thinking and solutions at scale to help countries meet their climate ambitions and is often cited as one of the CIF’s distinctive features and comparative advantages. It is centered around developing country-led investment plans and thematic programs supported by multi-lateral development bank (MDB) collaboration. The programmatic approach is part of the original design of the CIF and remains its main modality of delivery for all four of CIF’s programs: The Clean Technology Fund (CTF), Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR), Forest Investment Program (FIP), and Scaling Up Renewable Energy Program in Low Income Countries (SREP).
