Evaluating the UK government’s International Climate Fund (ICF-MEL)

Over the next four years, we will be evaluating the ICF and communicating findings and learning to improve future climate finance.

Monday 17 August 2015

The £3.87 billion International Climate Fund fund has been operating for four years to help developing countries achieve low-carbon, climate-resilient development that supports growth and reduces poverty.

DfID, DECC (Department for Energy and Climate Change), and DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs) all contribute to the fund and form the client programme team.

This four-year MEL programme will redesign and test the fund’s key performance indicators, conduct macro evaluations across the portfolio, and communicate widely the key messages and programme learning to enhance the utility and effectiveness of climate finance in the future.

The ICF comprises a diverse portfolio of over 180 programmes ranging in value from under £1m to over £300m. They are delivered in a wide range of countries, including non-DFID priority and middle-income countries, and support low carbon development, adaptation to climate change and forest related initiatives.

We will work in close collaboration with Itad to monitor, evaluate, and develop learning from the UK Governments International Climate Fund.

Our many other partners in the programme include SouthSouthNorth, LEAD Pakistan, Vivid Economics, Acclimatise, Stockholm Environment Institute, and Edinburgh University.
