The Chernobyl Shelter Fund (CSF) was set up in 1997 at the EBRD to assist Ukraine in transforming the existing shelter over Chernobyl's destroyed unit 4 to a stable and environmentally safe state.
To achieve this goal, the CSF finances the implementation of the so-called Shelter Implementation Plan (SIP) which was elaborated by Western and Ukrainian experts in 1997 as a step-by-step solution to the current situation at Chernobyl.
The initiative for the establishment of the Fund has been lead by the G-7 governments and the European Community since it was announced at the G-7 summit in 1997 (Denver). At the G7 summit of 1999 (Cologne) the initial pledges of US$ 300 million were nearly doubled.
More concerned governments declared their will to support the CSF at the pledging conferences in November 1997 (New York) and July 2000 (Berlin) and at an event in May 2005 (London).
