Summary

In order to supplement the scarce public resources available to finance technology needs for mitigation and adaptation in developing countries, CTI PFAN is successfully mobilizing private sector financing sources.  Under CTI PFAN, experienced financial professionals work with project developers and project proponents to structure projects and prepare financing proposals with the aim of accessing private capital markets.  CTI PFAN is currently successfully operating in Latin America, Africa and Asia. CTI PFAN has successfully raised 384 million dollars of investment for 30 clean energy projects.  The side event will highlight the “CTI PFAN Exploratory Workshop – Financing Adaptation Related Projects” to be held in Nairobi in June 2012.
