Climate Finance Accelerator (CFA) Independent Advisor

The Climate Finance Accelerator (CFA) is part of the UK’s efforts to support climate action at scale by improving the quality of emerging green businesses and initiatives in Emerging Markets and Developing Economies and matches them to relevant investors. It also fosters action to address relevant policy and regulatory barriers.

The CFA is funded by UK Government’s Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ), under the International Climate Finance (ICF) portfolio, as part of the UK Government's £11.6 billion commitment to support ODA-eligible countries to respond to the challenges and opportunities of climate change.

Since November 2020, under the current £12.4m phase of the programme, the CFA has supported around 200 projects across ten countries. Thirty of these projects have since progressed to close deals worth $344m, with more deals expected in the coming months.

DESNZ is planning to procure a second phase of the programme to support at least 800 projects across 16 countries (Brazil, Colombia, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Kenya, Malaysia, Mexico, Pakistan, Peru, the Philippines, South Africa, Thailand, Türkiye, and Viet Nam) until December 2029.
