Posted by Shofi Fida Thursday, March 7, 2013 0 comments

Closing Date: April 30,2013.

Developing countries will experience some of the worst impacts of climate change and given the constraints on the availability of public sector resources, it is generally accepted that significant private sector financing will be required to play a role in addressing many of the challenges of adaptation.

CTI PFAN’s Pilot Programme for Financing Adaptation related Climate Change Projects seeks to identify promising projects which have the capability of raising private sector financing. Selected projects will be offered free professional advice on project development and structuring and will be connected with investment through CTI PFAN’s global investment networks. The best projects will also be showcased at an Investor Forum to be held later in 2013.

Project Eligibility:
CTI PFAN seeks project proposals that are financially and technically viable, environmentally
beneficial, socially responsible and meet the CTI PFAN adaptation criteria:
