Trust Fund Committees

The Clean Technology Fund (CTF) and the Strategic Climate Fund (SCF)are each governed by a separate Trust Fund Committee having equal representation from contributor and recipient countries, which constitute the decision making members.

The CTF Trust Fund Committee oversees the Fund’s operations, provides strategic direction, and also approves and oversees its programming and projects.

The SCF Trust Fund Committee approves the establishment of its targeted programs and advises on strategic direction. SCF targeted programs include the Forest Investment Program (FIP), Pilot Program for Client Resilience (PPCR), and Scaling-up Renewable Energy Program (SREP), each of which is governed by its own Sub-Committee. 

In selecting representatives from contributor and recipient countries for the Committee and Sub-Committees the following principles that were fundamental to the design of the CIF should be kept in mind:

  • Committees and Sub-Committees should strive for balanced representation between contributor countries and recipient countries;
  • regional representation across the Climate Investment Funds should be sought;
  • equity considerations should lead to the inclusion of diverse voices; and
  • efficient and effectiveness should be sought in the decision making process

Note on the Selection of Members to the CTF and SCF Trust Fund Committees and PPCR Sub-Committee.

"Active" observers from the UN, GEF, UNFCC, civil society, and indigenous people and the private sector are invited to participate in meetings of the Trust Fund Committees and Sub-Committees.

Decision of the Trust Fund Committees and Sub-Committees are made by consensus of its decision-making members.
