CLIMATE CHANGE 

LOSS AND DAMAGE

FUND

With climate change causing loss and damage around the world, the Loss and Damage Fund adopted by Parties to the United Nations Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) intends to provide financial relief to the most vulnerable nations.

 

But how can the new fund innovative and make a real difference in a complex financial architecture?  We are contributing knowledge and ideas for the design and operationalisation of the Loss and Damage Fund.  

ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY

INNOVATIVE

WASTE MANAGEMENT

Despite well-publicised efforts to reduce waste, mountains of waste are growing above and below ground. Only a small part of household, industrial and e-waste is recovered and recycled. Micro plastics are everywhere, including in our organs. 

Traditional approaches are not solving the problem. We are working on the up-take of new technologies that have the potential to transform waste management for a clean and healthy environment.

ABOUT THE FOUNDATION

IFF is a Swiss foundation established by Robert R. Filipp in 2011.  Our mission is to help governments, communities and organisations design, structure and implement innovative finance collaborations and help them achieve their missions.

 

The idea for the IFF came about as a result of the success our Founder had with innovative financing for global health, which generated hundreds of millions of dollars for life-saving treatments.  IFF is about complementing and expanding this experience in other sectors.

We have a flexible policy on how we engage with projects.  Most frequently, organisations approach us to help them design, structure and implement innovative finance solutions to advance their missions.  

 

Once we accept a project, we deploy our expertise, world-wide networks and resources for the design, structuring and implementation of innovative sources of funding.

 Let's work together.
