CTI PFAN Pilot Programme for Financing Adaptation related Climate Change Projects
Developing countries will experience some of the worst impacts of climate change and given the constraints on the availability of public sector resources, it is generally accepted that significant private sector financing will be required to play a role in addressing many of the challenges of adaptation.
CTI PFAN’s Pilot Programme for Financing Adaptation related Climate Change Projects seeks to identify promising projects which have the capability of raising private sector financing. Selected projects will be offered free professional advice on project development and structuring and will be connected with investment through CTI PFAN’s global investment networks.
CTI PFAN seeks project proposals that are financially and technically viable, environmentally beneficial, socially responsible and meet the CTI PFAN adaptation criteria:
Adaptation related projects are those that help reduce the vulnerability of human and natural systems to the current and future impacts of climate change and climate-related risks, increasing or maintaining adaptive capacity and resilience in the targeted regions and countries through investment for project implementation.

About CTI PFAN & the Organisers
The CTI PFAN Pilot Programme for Financing Adaptation Related Projects is sponsored by the Climate Technology Initiative (CTI)and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), with support from the InternationalCenter for Environmental Technology Transfer (ICETT).
In climate change mitigation, CTI PFAN has successfully raised just under USD 500 million of private sector investment and financing for 40 projects, representing over 325 MW of clean generation capacity and just under 2 million tonnes of CO2 e reduction pa. The Pilot Programme for Financing Adaptation related projects is designed to transfer the CTI PFAN methodology for mitigation projects and accelerate the deployment of private sector finance for climate change adaptation projects.
