Unlocking investment and innovative technology are key enablers for South Africa’s transition to a net zero economy by 2050. We successfully launched the Climate Finance Accelerator South Africa in 2021 and we are pleased to announce the launch of the 2022 CFA South Africa programme. The main objective of the CFA South Africa programme is to improve the flow of climate finance in South Africa. We received over 130 applications in 2021, and worked directly with 13 innovative low carbon projects to engage with South African and international financiers.
The CFA is a four-year technical assistance programme operating in eight partner countries, including South Africa, supporting the development of a pipeline of a bankable, low carbon projects and identifying suitable financing options. The global programme is funded by the United Kingdom Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), with NBI and GreenCape as the local delivery partners for South Africa.
The National Business Initiative, GreenCape, the British High Commission, the United Kingdom Department for Business Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Climate Finance Accelerator team invite you to attend the launch of the 2022 CFA South Africa programme on Thursday 14th July, between 10:30 and 11:30.
The event will include a call for proposals, detailing how project developers and entrepreneurs can participate in this second phase of CFA South Africa. Financiers and projects who participated in the first round of CFA South Africa will also present on their experience of the programme.
