World Bank’s Carbon Initiative for Development (Ci-Dev) Request for Project Ideas

The governments of the United Kingdom and Sweden and the Swiss-based Climate Cent Foundation have pledged more than $125 million for the World Bank’s Carbon Initiative for Development (Ci-Dev).  The Ci-Dev will use performance-based payments in the form of purchases of certified emissions reductions to support low-carbon investments with strong development benefits, mainly to support increased access to energy in low-income countries.

With financing now in place, the Ci-Dev is inviting project developers and other interested parties to submit project ideas for consideration and possible funding. All information required for submission of project idea(s), including the Ci-Dev project selection criteria, are attached to this email and can also be found here.

Note that you project idea must be submitted by January 31, 2014 to be included under this request for project ideas.   

If you have any questions regarding submission of your project idea, send an email to helpdesk@carbonfinance.org.
