AFD has made a dedicated platform available to green finance actors (banks, companies, donors, public authorities) which allows them to collect, disseminate and capitalize on best practices.
The SUNREF website is thereby an ecosystem for green finance which provides actors in the sector with new opportunities to implement innovative and effective operational approaches. Finally, this website gives an additional understanding of the green finance projects implemented by AFD, the green investments made in Africa, the Indian Ocean, Latin America, Asia and the Mediterranean, SUNREF’s innovative approach and its benefits, its partners, and the types of eligible financing. SUNREF’s aim is to pool the efforts of all actors in order to facilitate the scaling up which is essential for addressing the environmental challenges.
AFD has awarded a grant of €1,5 million to the Centre for Affordable Housing Finance in Africa (CAHF), a not-for-profit think tank based in Johannesburg, South Africa, to extend its work into francophone Africa. The programme will run from 2016 – 2021.
