The Climate Investment Platform (CIP) is a global initiative, announced on the occasion of the UN Secretary General’s Climate Action Summit in September 2019, by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All), in co-operation with the Green Climate Fund (GCF).
The CIP is an inclusive partnership welcoming all stakeholders, from governments and international organisations to the private sector, to scale up climate action and translate ambitious national climate targets into concrete investments on the ground. Working collectively and together with all interested partners, the CIP aims to mobilise investments at the necessary scale to achieve meaningful progress towards climate objectives.
The CIP will initially focus on energy transition, with the ultimate goal of accelerating investments in renewable energy and enabling the realisation of the ambitious Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
How to become a CIP Partner
IRENA invites multilateral, bilateral and local financial institutions, other development organisations and other institutions that are prepared to provide financial resources, technical assistance and/or support the realisation of projects, along with private companies and private investors, to become partners of the Climate Investment Platform (CIP). Within the framework of the CIP, interested organisations can register under relevant sub-regional operational cluster(s) and propose modalities for technical assistance and/or project support that they can provide in response to requests received through the Platform. Partners will be informed of all CIP events and invited to Investment Forums and other related activities.
