CIF and GDI host first joint learning event

By Acclimatise News

On June 6th and 7th The Climate Investment Funds (CIF) and Global Delivery Initiative (GDI) will host a two-day learning event at World Bank headquarters aimed at sharing lessons from their findings across Latin America, Asia and Africa. Acclimatise’s Virginie Fayolle will be a part of a panel speaking on how to rapidly drive private sector investment in climate adaptation in developing countries.

In 2017, CIF and GDI joined forces to better understand the operational challenges that constrain climate finance projects. The collaboration led to the development of six delivery cases, each mapping how practitioners working on climate finance projects are embedding adaptive management to address questions such as:

  • What are the inherent risks of private climate financing, and what instruments make projects bankable?
  • How do governments manage competing interests in climate-smart regulatory reform?
  • What beneficiary-selection strategies are most effective for managing collective action problems and maximizing welfare outcomes?

The cohort of speakers draws from diverse institutional perspectives – multilateral development banks, bilateral organisations, governments, the private sector, and civil society – thereby creating a well-rounded discourse that aids practitioners to deliver ground-breaking projects within challenging contexts.
