The 2014 Climate Investment Funds (CIF) Partnership Forum convened from 23-24 June, in Montego Bay, Jamaica, and was co-hosted by the CIF and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). A CIF Stakeholder Day preceded the Partnership Forum on 22 June. In addition, a Knowledge Bazaar enabled attendees to network, exchange ideas and participate in interactive learning.
The Partnership Forum brought together approximately 500 participants, representing governments, civil society, indigenous peoples, the private sector, development partners and
researchers, to share lessons emerging from the CIF on how to foster partnerships and attract investment to deliver low-carbon and climate-resilient development. The Forum included plenary and breakout sessions, intended to address the multiple interests of participants and enable open discussions to explore ways to maximize CIF effectiveness.
