The Indonesia Climate Change Trust Fund (ICCTF) is a national funding entity which aims to develop innovative ways to link international finance sources with national investment strategies. Created by the Government of Indonesia (GOI), it acts as a catalyst to attract investment and to implement a range of alternative financing mechanisms for climate change mitigation and adaptation programmes. The ICCTF receives non-refundable contributions from bilateral and multilateral donors. The main funding mechanism of the ICCTF is the ‘Innovation Fund’, which provides grants to line ministries to support climate change related projects within the GOI.

Conditions and Eligibility Requirements
Entities which are eligible to submit proposals to the ICCTF are Government institutions such as Line Ministries, Government Agencies and Local Government as Executing Agencies (EAs). EAs may partner with other institutions including universities and CSOs to implement the project.
With projects administered through UNDP, acting as the interim fund manager, eligible project duration was set to one year, while project budgets were capped at USD3 million.
In addition to project selection criteria such as impact, sustainability, scalability and synergy, the capacity and experience required to conduct large and innovative projects in a short time frame, and whether the projects were high priority for the Ministries concerned, were also considered.
Accessing the Fund
Sectoral ministries on their own, or through joint proposals with NGOs or academic institutions, and local governmental bodies are invited to submit proposals for activities to be funded by the ICCTF.
|Decision Making Structure||
A program management unit consisting of a Steering Committee, a Technical Committee and a Secretariat and a Trustee are responsible for the programmatic and technical oversight of the ICCTF in collaboration with development partners and other contributor-supported programs.
|Non-Government Stakeholder Participation
In 2010, the ICCTF organized two Civil Society Organisation (CSO) workshops in Jakarta to discuss the involvement of civil society stakeholders in the decision making process of the ICCTF. At the first workshop, the role, the structure and the governance mechanisms of ICCTF were discussed. The second workshop started a selection process to select two CSO representatives who would participate in the ICCTF Steering Committee and created a CSO forum to discuss the role of the CSO representatives. Approximately 18 CSOs involved in climate change issues attended the meetings.
