Priority Sectors

We take the lead and urge others to follow.

Together with IIC resources, the Canadian Climate Fund co-finances private sector projects that require blended financing to be viable. Projects must mitigate greenhouse gas emissions or assist countries in adapting to climate change.

Priority sectors:

  • Renewable energy: solar, hydro, wind, biomass and geothermal; methane reduction; and biofuels
  • Energy efficiency
  • Agriculture and forestry: reforestation and forestry preservation, sustainable agriculture and soil sequestration
  • Resilient infrastructure: water utilities and coastal buildings; mangroves and vulnerable hillsides
