Video: How to Build Climate Resilience & Create Jobs

Posted by Infra on Wednesday, December 31st, 2014

infoDev’s Climate Technology Program (CTP) aims to transform climate change challenges into market opportunities by offering a suite of local and global programs and financing that build in-country and international innovation capacity in cleantech. As a result, the CTP enables developing country entrepreneurs to be more proactively and profitably involved in one of the most promising sectors of the 21st century.

The CTP’s flagship initiative is the network of Climate Innovation Centers, or CICs. The CICs are entrepreneur and new venture support facilities tailor-made to respond to a country’s development challenges. They provide holistic support that goes beyond traditional incubation, including seed financing facilities, specialized policy interventions and specific network linkages as well as technical facilities, and business training.

On the global level, CTP drives clean-tech innovation by packaging and sharing knowledge from the CICs through our Climate TRACK initiative, mobilizing funds for high-impact technologies through the IGNITE Fund, linking promising companies with global partners and mentors through our cutting-edge Market CONNECT platform, and deploying Impact Xchange—a custom enhanced impact monitoring tool—along with the training to build up the CIC and host-government capacity.

The CTP is funded by the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID), the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA), UK’s Department for International Development (DfID), the government of Norway, and the World Bank.
