IFC-Canada Climate Change Program

The International Finance Corporation (IFC)-Canada Climate Change Program promotes private sector financing for clean energy projects, through the use of concessional funds to catalyze investments in renewable, low-carbon technologies that would not otherwise happen. A portion of the program funds is also used to fund advisory services work to build local capacity, fill information gaps in the market, and enable countries to adopt regulatory and business environments that encourage the private sector to invest in renewable energy, energy efficiency, and cleaner technologies.
