Under the Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR) over US$ 29 million in concessional funding have been set aside to contribute to the financing of innovative programs and projects that will engage the private sector in activities associated with reducing countries’ exposure to climate risk and uncertainty. Proposals for utilizing this second round of funds will be reviewed and selected on a competitive basis by the PPCR Sub-Committee, taking into account the recommendations of an expert group. The second round of funding will be given final approval in June 2014.
When is the deadline?
