The Inter-American Development Bank and the Climate Investment Funds

Nov 2013
Participation in the Climate Investment Funds (CIF) strengthens the IDB's ability to help Latin America and the Caribbean adapt to potential climate change threats and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. As one of six CIF implementing agencies, the IDB pipeline adds up to US$686 million in CIF grants and concessional loans. These resources finance investment programs and knowledge and capacity building activities in areas such as renewable energy development, sustainable forest management, energy efficiency, sustainable transport, and national and regional adaptation planning.
