Design of a Climate Change Innovation Programme (CCIP) for India

July 2007 to December 2007

In response to the growing importance of climate change in DFID’s strategic priorities, DFID India plans to create a Climate Change Innovation Programme (CCIP). The goal of CCIP is to strengthen the resilience of India’s poor to climate change. The purpose is approaches tested to help the poor adapt to climate change and to access opportunities in the carbon market.

In this project, ODI is supporting DFID India in design of Climate Change Innovation Programme, including selection and appraisal of thematic areas of focus, and specifications for the management of the Fund. The main output will be a draft Programme Memorandum for submission to DFID Senior Management, and supporting technical and operational documentation.
