The Private Financing Advisory Network
Now more than ever, supporting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that focus on climate change is crucial. SMEs play a critical role in driving sustainability, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing climate resilience. By increasing investment in and supporting SMEs that prioritize climate action, we can help create a more resilient and sustainable future, while also promoting economic growth and job creation.
Throughout 2022, we continued our work with our global network of locally-based clean energy and climate finance experts. Our focus remained on bridging the gap between entrepreneurs and investors, which includes capacitating entrepreneurs to develop bankable projects, increasing investor confidence in and providing access to climate and clean energy projects as well as enhancing the capacity of local ecosystems to develop self-sustaining and gender-responsive climate mitigation and adaptation markets
With a focus on clean energy and climate mitigation and adaptation, PFAN has been in operation since 2006, making it one of the longest-standing project preparation facilities working with SMEs in developing country markets. Our efforts have resulted in a milestone in 2022: since inception, PFAN-supported projects have mobilized USD 3 billion in investment.
We are proud of the PFAN global network and the climate entrepreneurs PFAN has supported in 2022 and are thankful to our donors for continuing to make this successful journey possible.
We invite project developers, donors, investors, partners and anyone interested in our work to join us in reading this report. We hope you find it insightful and inspiring as we continue to work towards a more resilient and sustainable future.
