CIFAR Alliance

Year Started:

Area of Work:
Climate Action


The Climate Innovation for Adaptation and Resilience (CIFAR) Alliance, formerly known as the DF4CR Task Force, was initially convened in 2021 to determine the opportunity for the digital finance industry to enable access to climate resilience solutions, and to chart a path to scale up an innovation ecosystem for this emerging sector.

In 2021, the Alliance’s knowledge products and activities were the first explorations of how digital finance can enable access to climate resilience technologies for low-income, climate-vulnerable populations globally.

The mission of the Alliance is to accelerate responsible innovation in digital finance for climate adaptation and resilience. The CIFAR Alliance is coordinated by BFA Global and made possible by financial support from PayPal. Learn more:
