Canada was already a leading contributor in the Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR) of the CIFs, with $100M provided as a grant over 2008/09-2009/10. The CTF promotes scaled-up financing for demonstration, deployment and transfer of low-carbon technologies with significant potential for long-term greenhouse gas emissions savings. Consistent with a decision of the CIF Board, Canada's contribution to the CTF will support the investment plans of projects in Chile, Nigeria and India.CanadaCaribbean, Latin AmericaClean Technology Fund (CTF) Mitigation 100.000CAD2012FY 2011/2012
