The Fund has been established through an agreement, signed in 2009, between the World Bank and the Italian Ministry for the Environment, with the aim of promoting communication and awareness-raising activities in favor of sustainable development.

Thanks to the support of the Italian Ministry for the Environment, Connect4Climate was launched in 2013. Connect4Climate is a global partnership program created to promote awareness activities on the climate change issue, involving more than 460 partners around the world including civil society groups, media networks, international organizations, academic institutions, youth groups, and the private sector.

By the end of 2015, the Ministry for the Environment has granted 3 million Euros to promote best practices on mitigation and adaptation.
