The Climate Finance Accelerator (CFA) is a £12 million four-year technical assistance programme funded by the UK Government Department for Energy Security and Net Zero. It has been running for two years and currently operates in ten countries (Colombia, Egypt, Mexico, Nigeria, Peru, Pakistan, South Africa, Türkiye, Uganda, and Viet Nam). The CFA has provided capacity building support for over 135 innovative low carbon projects with a total value of over US $2.9 billion to help them. Selected from pipelines worth over US $64 billion, CFA has helped these projects develop attractive propositions for investment and hosted forums with interested investors in each country and in the City of London. 19 projects have already been successful in accessing financing of over US $286 million.
