The ACAD Facility is an innovative public-private
partnership that collaborates with African financial
institutions and local project developers to enhance their awareness,
expertise, and investment willingness in the African carbon market.
ACAD's strategy draws upon three
complementary support lines: risk and transaction cost sharing,
technical assistance to project developers, and targeted training and
outreach for financial institutions.
By building a portfolio of projects
that is both relevant and easy to replicate elsewhere in Africa, ACAD aims to stimulate similar ventures, eventually decreasing project
development finance transaction costs, and mobilizing investment.
