CPI’s work in Africa and full range of services supports governments, financial institutions, civil society organizations, and the private sector to close the climate finance gap and improve the geographic distribution, private sector participation, and equity investment in climate action and sustainable growth. 

CPI developed the first-of-its-kind Landscape of Climate Finance in Africa, a comprehensive assessment of climate finance flows and mobilization in the region, regularly cited by policymakers, advocacy organizations, investors, and the media. Country-level tracking work includes Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa

CPI was the implementation partner for GNIplus in Kenya, a four-year program that supported the Kenyan government to achieve its NDCs. Other CPI programs and workstreams that support the expansion and effectiveness of climate investment and sustainable development in Africa include our work in Adaptation, in Cities via the Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance, Sustainable Agriculture, with the South Africa President’s Climate Commission on aligning climate finance with South African’s Green Finance Taxonomy, and in Just Transition, through our work supporting fossil fuel just transition efforts such as the South Africa JETP and other carbon transition efforts. 

CPI is best known for its innovation and mobilization of climate finance in Africa through our Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance. The Lab’s Southern Africa workstream launched in 2019 and was expanded to include East African countries in 2023. More recently, CPI has launched the Catalytic Climate Finance Facility, in which 50% of its inaugural 2023 cohort targets African markets, and the ClimateShot Investor Coalition, an action-oriented group of investors working to rapidly scale-up finance for sustainable agrifood systems. 

Our Africa team is guided by Jonathan First, and includes local experts as well as support from our Africa-focused specialists in our United Kingdom office.
