The African Investors for Climate Change (AICC) Network is an initiative launched during the COP22  in November 2016 to enable a rapid and effective climate transition in Africa. It comprises a coalition of African national and regional institutional investors with the support of international financial institutions and development agencies, all committed to act collectively by driving domestic savings and long term institutional finance towards sustainable development and climate-smart projects.

The AICC Network Launching Event will focus on:

"New Business Models for Climate Smart Projects"

Bridging long-term investors and impact projects in Africa

The event offers an ideal venue to identify opportunities for investment in high-impact climate smart projects in Africa, foster the debate around relevant climate change business models for climate-smart financing, and discuss institutional and regulatory enablers to promote scaled-up financial flows. The event is also an opportunity for the AICC Network to welcome its new members, and share with participants its proposed plan of Actions as a unified coalition of African institutional investors and a leveraging catalyser of private sector and foreign investors.

Key topics :

  • Climate Change
  • Micro-grids success stories
  • Resilient Agriculture
