Climate Investment Funds (CIF)- Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR)
The Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR), is one of three targeted programs that make up the Strategic Climate Fund (SCF) of the Climate Investment Funds (CIFs). It supports national governments in integrating climate resilience into development planning across sectors and stakeholder groups. It also provides funding to put these plans into action and pilot innovative public and private sector solutions to pressing climate-related risks.
It has four main objectives:
- Pilot and demonstrate approaches for integration of climate risk and resilience into development policies and planning;
- Strengthen capacities at the national levels to integrate climate resilience into development planning;
- Scale-up and leverage climate resilient investment, building on other on-going initiatives; and
- Enable learning-by-doing and sharing of lessons at country, regional and global levels.
As of September 2019 total cumulative funding received is $1.16 billion.
SPCR preparation, submission and approval may take up to 2 years.
Project preparation, submission and approval by the PPCR Sub-Committee may take 1-2 years.
