Description and results


This project aims to catalyze public and private sector investments in climate change mitigation and adaptation across Africa, while promoting gender-responsive, sustainable economic development. The Canada-African Development Bank Climate Fund (CACF) seeks to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by scaling up renewable energy, supporting energy efficient projects, and developing green infrastructure and sustainable cities (e.g. waste management, urban transport, green infrastructure, and digital solutions). Additionally, the CACF intends to support climate change adaptation and build climate resilience.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) reduced greenhouse gas emissions; (2) enhanced resilience of local communities in Africa to cope with climate change; and (3) enhanced participation by women in climate mitigation and adaptation-relevant sector or activities.
