Proposals are invited for the Climate Finance Accelerator Nigeria 2023. The Climate Finance Accelerator (CFA) is a global technical assistance programme funded by the UK government to directly support climate projects to access finance. The CFA operates in nine countries (Nigeria, Colombia, South Africa, Türkiye, Mexico, Peru, Pakistan, Egypt, and Vietnam) with the aim of encouraging the flows of finance required to deliver on countries’ ambition to limit global warming to 1.5°C.

In Nigeria, the CFA brings together the key actors in the climate finance investment chain: project proponents and developers, finance providers, and policymakers. Their aim is to facilitate a collaborative approach to unlocking finance for climate projects at scale and creating a pipeline of ‘investment ready’ low carbon projects. The CFA also seeks to deliver several co-benefits, such as supporting a just transition and green recovery efforts from COVID-19 through inclusive approaches to sustainable development, improved gender equality, and building resilience to climate impacts.

Benefits from Climate Finance Accelerator

By engaging with the CFA program, project developers can benefit from:

  • Access to investors: CFA Nigeria provides project developers greater opportunities to access finance by working directly with potential investors to understand their needs and develop their projects accordingly. Through their reach, project proponents have the opportunity to reach commercial and concessional investors, operating both nationally and internationally.
  • Coaching and best practice insights: CFA Nigeria provides access to expert insight and coaching. Through knowledge sharing sessions on what matters to financiers when taking the decision to invest, project developers will gain valuable insights and develop capabilities in making projects attractive and investment ready. For example, they will advise on the development of key materials such as term sheets for investors and marketing presentations.
  • Networking opportunities: Project developers will have the opportunity to expand their network with investors and other key stakeholders in the climate finance landscape. These include government representatives at national and local level, national and international development banks and agencies, and a cohort of projects facing similar challenges. The network will provide project developers with long-lasting benefits to current and future low carbon opportunities.
  • Increased visibility: Participation in CFA Nigeria and key events can raise the profile of a project amongst a range of stakeholders from regional and national policy makers, through to a range of stakeholders from local and international finance providers
  • Achieving low carbon project objectives: CFA Nigeria supports projects to realise and communicate their positive impacts. They have access to climate, sectoral and social impact specialists and can assist projects to support local and national climate ambitions, as well as helping to unlock co-benefits such as poverty reduction, improved gender equality and social inclusion, and tackling biodiversity loss.
