Steps to Access & Application Procedure

Countries are selected and subject to scoping and technical missions. Country then prepares investment plan which is subject to endorsement by the relevant CIF Trust Fund Committee. The Trust Fund Committee then can approve individual projects or programs under the investment plan. The relevant implementing MDB(s) must then approve the projects or programs through their own processes.

Organizational and Decision Making Structure

The CTF is governed by a Trust Fund Committee. Each Trust Fund Committee is composed of equal representation from contributor and recipient countries. A MDB Committee was established to facilitate collaboration, coordination, and information exchange among the MDBs. The Administrative Unit facilitates the work, and it is housed in the World Bank Group’s Washington, D.C. offices.

Monitoring and Reporting Procedures

Each MDB will report annually to the CTF Trust Fund Committee for monitoring and evaluation conducted by the MDB in accordance with its procedures. An independent evaluation of the operations of the CTF and the impacts of its activities will be carried out jointly after three years of operations by the independent evaluation departments of the MDBs.
