Under the leadership of the recipient country, an investment plan (essentially the MDBs‘ ―business plan‖) is produced; and 4. CTF Trust Fund Committee reviews the investment plan with a view to endorsing a resource envelope for programs/projects and authorising designated MDBs to proceed with development and preparation of individual investment operations for CTF co-financing. Private Sector 1. Private sector proposals are submitted in the form of either a. individual large-scale projects (―ProjectII); or b. program envelopes which aggregate several small and medium sized projects each utilising less than US$50 million of CTF funds and all having a shared focus and objective (―Programs‖) 2.
