International Climate Fund case studies

Supporting sustainable economic growth, building resilience to the impacts of climate change and helping manage natural resources.

The International Climate Fund (ICF) invests in a broad range of activities across the globe to support sustainable economic growth, build resilience to the impacts of climate change and help sustainably manage natural resources such as forests.

The case studies below summarise the activities of several of our investments. The examples from our ‘Sustainable Development Learning Dialogue’ provide lessons for how we can better understand the challenges that people face, what works well, and why. They highlight in particular the importance of effective collaboration and coherence when we are working with others to support national planning.
