The initial round of PPCR funds has been fully allocated. It is not clear if there will be a second round of funding under the CIF. The lessons learned from the “pilot” nature of the PPCR will need to be analyzed first.
Recipient countries are selected by a PPCR expert group based on criteria including the following:
- Transparency and vulnerability;
- Country preparedness and its ability to move towards climate-resilient development plans;
- Country distribution across regions (or the extent to which countries are regionally representative);
- Types of hazards; and
- Replicability and sustainability.
The PPCR Sub-Committee also ensures that their programs complement the activities of other development partners (including the Global Environment Facility and other UN organizations), in order to maximize synergies and avoid overlap.
It is important to note that the PPCR aims to fund longerterm programs that add value and promote greater impact, as opposed to funding individual projects.
