Building up the global carbon market in East Africa
The project promotes the use of carbon market mechanisms to implement climate action (including Nationally Determined Contributions, NDCs) by supporting the private and public spheres at the national as well as the regional level. It focuses its activities on the transfer of successful approaches and experiences of the Kyoto Protocol into the Paris Agreement, ensuring the continuity of ongoing CDM projects, as well as contributing to the design of Article 6 through piloting activities as well as supporting Uganda and other East African countries to utilise carbon mechanisms for their NDC implementation.

SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FUND FOR AFRICA
WHAT IS SEFA?- The Sustainable Energy Fund for Africa (SEFA) provides much-needed financial support to medium- and small-scale clean energy and energy efficiency projects in Africa. In many African countries, smaller clean energy projects could be commercially viable; however, the upfront development costs prevent them from accessing financing and reaching market. SEFA provides resources to off-set those preparation costs, enabling small and medium-size clean energy projects to become bankable. SEFA, established in the summer of 2011, is built upon the premise that secure, clean energy can contribute to strong African economies, thereby increasing opportunities for employment particularly for women and youth.
ACHIEVING SEFA SUPPORT- Currently, SEFA is in its first operational phase and is seeking to support projects under preparation with cost-sharing grants. Sponsors with potential projects are strongly encouraged to approach the AfDB for further consultation. SEFA can support the full range of project preparation activities, from pre-feasibility studies and PPP preparation up to assistance in achieving financial close. See More:SEFA Sponsor Brochure
