San Francisco, 15 May 2024 – Climate Policy Initiative (CPI) is pleased to announce the opening of its representative office in South Africa, effective 15 May 2024. This will be CPI’s seventh current office location. 

CPI’s work focuses on climate policy and economics in emerging and developing economies, and CPI has been actively involved in Africa-focused research, analysis, and financial instrument development for almost a decade. CPI’s work in Africa supports governments, financial institutions, civil society organizations, and the private sector to close the climate finance gap and improve the distribution, private sector participation, and integrity of investment in climate action and sustainable growth across the continent. 

Representative Africa-focused CPI work includes the Africa regional program of the Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance, numerous climate finance tracking analyses including The Landscape of Climate Finance in Africa, and implementation efforts such as the Global NDC Implementation Partners (GNI+). More about our Africa work is available here: CPI Africa.

CPI’s Senior Africa Advisor Jonathan First will guide the Cape Town office, supported by Anna Balm (who led the GNI+ program in Kenya), Chavi Meattle from our London office, and several other Africa-based consultants with whom CPI currently works. As with all CPI offices, our Africa work also draws on the expertise of our 150+ member global team. 

“CPI’s work in Africa continues to grow in its breadth of subject matter and programs, and effectiveness,” stated Jonathan First. “I am honored to be working with such a high-caliber team—who I have worked with for the past seven years—on projects throughout the continent, supporting climate leaders across our network of public and private organizations.” 

“This is a very exciting milestone for CPI given the importance of Africa and the continent’s climate challenges and opportunities,” said CPI’s Global Managing Director, Barbara Buchner. “Having a South Africa office not only reflects our growing body of local work, but will enable us to better connect local and international agendas and help scale finance, an area where CPI excels.”   

The new CPI South Africa location is:  

2nd Floor, North Wharf
42 Hans Strydom Avenue 
Foreshore, Cape Town  
South Africa
