The $1.2 billion Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR) is a funding window of the CIF for climate change adaptation and resilience building. Using a two-phase, programmatic approach, the PPCR assists national governments in integrating climate resilience into development planning across sectors and stakeholder groups. It also provides additional funding to put the plan into action and pilot innovative public and private sector solutions to pressing climate-related risks.

To date, $939 million (about 80% of PPCR funding) is approved for 58 projects expecting around $2 billion in co-financing from other sources.

The PPCR empowers countries to approach climate resilience in a programmatic manner. Moving beyond project-by-project activities that have limited potential to effect national or sector wide transformations, the PPCR programmatic approach entails a long-term, strategic arrangement of linked investment projects and activities to achieve large-scale, systematic impacts and take advantage of synergies and co-financing opportunities.

*PPCR pilot countries Dominica, Haiti, Jamaica, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Saint Lucia, Tonga are also members of World Meteorological Organization Small Island Developing States (WMO SIDS).
