This research brief uses a case study approach to document best practice and innovation on intermediated, concessional, microfinance mechanisms that have arisen from a variety of climate-direction interventions funded through the Climate Investment Fund’s (CIF) Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR). It shows that using intermediated, concessionary finance to enable inclusive, microfinance solutions allows communities vulnerable to climate change to adapt and build resilience by financing income-producing activities, building up their assets, stabilizing consumption and taking measures to protect themselves against climate risks.


This brief is part of the PPCR Knowledge for Resilience Series. The Series aims to share the lessons learned by countries implementing projects under the CIF’s PPCR.
