    Reporting on CEIF

    Sustainable Development @ The World Bank

    Progress Report to October 2007 Annual Meetingprovided details on progress on Action Plan for:

    Energy for growth, with a particular emphasis on accessto energy in Sub-Saharan Africa;

    Transition to a low-carbon development trajectory; and

    Adaptation to the impacts of climate change.

    Report also outlined an approach to scaling up actions on climatechange and provides a review of options to further reduce thefinancial barriers to support low-carbon and adaptive growth indeveloping countries.

    WBG Key Progress Since Gleneagles Access and Low Carbon Energy (1)

    Cumulative energy commitments of over US$11billion for FY06FY08 to date are 57% higher than the

    energy lending in FY0305. Energy financing to IDA countries also increased

    significantly, from annual average of US$0.9 billionbetween FY03 and FY05 to an annual average ofUS$1.8 billion between FY06 and FY07. But energyaccess remains a policy and financing challenge in allregions, especially in SSA.

    Share of support for low-carbon energy projects upfrom 28% in FY0305 to 40% since Gleneagles.

    GEF and Carbon Finance contributed US$546 million,or 13 percent.

    WBG Key Progress Since Gleneagles Access and Low Carbon Energy (2)

    RE and EE for the period FY05 to H1FY09 wasUS$2.3 billion, exceeding Bonn commitment 1.5years ahead of schedule

    CEIF low-carbon work extended to other sectors,such as transport and urban sectors, showing goodpotential.

    Two new Carbon FacilitiesCPF and FCPFapproved in September 2007

    Pilot program to begin measuring GHG emissions ofthe WBG lending portfolio is underway.

    Adaptation IDA and Climate Changeresults and related work

    CEIF argued for the need for a shift in approach to

    adaptation from a largely stand alone, project by projectapproach to one where the management of climate risk,current and future, was regarded as an essential part ofdevelopment planning.

    IDA and Climate Change report (2007) shows that thepoorest countries are most vulnerable to climate changeimpacts and that such countries need to considerimmediate interventions that will increase their resilienceto climate change.

    Adaptation- Progress since Gleneagles New analytical tools and guidance for assessing and

    managing climate risk are necessary. Resources made available through the GEF have been

    critical in promoting assessments, capacity building andinitial project by project action, but fall a long way shortof the resources required to support comprehensiveadaptation.

    Key Lesson since Gleneagles-Thinking of climate change differently Beyond environmentcomplex and overaching problem Affects all aspects of societieseconomy, technology, trade, equity, ethics,

    security, relations within and among countries

    Financial aspects inceasingly important, both in regard of national budgetsand international transfers- and financing needs are enormous and notbeing met.

    Progress on implementing widespread adaptation has been hindered bythe lack of sound estimates of the scope of the task and the financialimplications.

    Requires to run on two legs: mitigationto avoid the unmanageable, adaptationto manage the unavoidable

    Call forMDB Suppport on Climate Change

    UNFCCC recognizes the need for financial resources- in addition to thefinancial mechanism defined under article 11 of the UNFCCC,paragraph 11(5) stipulates that developed country parties may also

    provide and developing country Parties avail themselves of, financialresources related to the implementation of the Convention throughbilateral, regional and other multilateral channels.

    Bali Action Plan- launch a comprehensive process to enable the full,effective and sustained implementation of the Convention through long-term cooperative action, now, up to and beyond 2012.

    Under Paragraph 1 of Bali Action Plan, Parties decided to address waysto strengthen the catalytic role of the Convention in encouragingmultilateral bodies, the public and private sectors and civil society,building on synergies among activities and processes, as a means tosupport mitigation in a coherent and integrated manner.

    innovative instruments for concessional finance3. Facilitate the development of innovative market

    mechanisms4. Create enabling environment for and leveraging private

    sector finance5. Accelerate the deployment of existing and development

    of new climate-friendly technologies6. Step-up policy research, knowledge management and

    Scale of action- need to translate lessons from CEIF andlonger-term GEF pilot and prototype projects andcapacity building, into broader programs which will help

    transform economies so that the objective of alleviatingpoverty and fostering growth can be met through newways of approaching low-carbon growth and enhancingresilience.

    In consultation with interested parties, the WBG andRegional Development Banks (RDBs) are joining effortsto establish a portfolio of strategic CIF.

    CIF to complement, build upon and enhance theactivities of other existing instruments, like the GEF, IDA,International Bank for Reconstruction and Development(IBRD) and the IFC.

  • 8/8/2019 Warren Pres



    Climate Investment Funds: Principles Financing needs for climate change are enormous widespread recognition that all multilateral institutions mustwork with their clients to address this agenda in support ofthe Bali Action Plan.

    Climate Change is a development issue, and thereforeMDBs have an essential role to play. The central role of theGEF and UN agencies in the financial architecture toaddress climate change is fully recognized.

    The CIF aims to fill a critical gap: scaling up investmentswhile transforming development paths of the countries.This will contribute to promoting an internationalenvironment supportive of a global agreement to addressclimate change.

    The Gap in Mitigation Financing

    Sustainable Development @ The World Bank

    Absolute financing gap is ~ $100 billion per year

    In long-term, could be filled by combination of:

    growing market for carbon trading (could reach$100 billion after 2012), and

    policy instruments such as carbon taxes

    In the interim, concessional financing is criticalto catalyze increased flow of commercial capitalin this area

    Support investments based on country-led strategies, and

    Be flexible and efficient to respond to country demand andprovide innovative solutions to mobilize private sector

    Maximize co-benefits, particularly in relation to povertyreduction and sustainable management of natural resourcesand ecosystem services

    Encourage fast-tracking of early action (both mitigation and

    adaptation) and market-based solutions to climate change Utilize skills and capabilities of international financial

    institutions to raise and deliver concessional climatefinancing at a significant scale

    countries and other interested parties and advance thedesign of funds and financial instruments. The final proposal will focus on:

    Supporting UNFCCC Bali Action Plan and consistency with ParisDeclaration

    Country ownership- low carbon growth strategies and NAPAs to
