The new CTI PFAN adaptation work will seek to address the essential role of private sector financing by using its tried and tested bottom-up approach, to identify, develop and secure financing and investment for commercially viable and sustainable projects. The ultimate objective of the process is to establish a CTI PFAN network and project development activity, dedicated to connecting private sector investment and financing to adaptation related projects.

To mark the beginning of this new endeavour, CTI PFAN is organising a 2-day Exploratory Workshop on the issue of financing adaptation related projects in Nairobi, Kenya on 13th – 14th June 2012. Further details of the workshop including the detailed objectives can be found in the outline agenda.

The workshop will convene stakeholders from the public and private sectors to help guide CTI PFAN’s work in this important and challenging area. CTI PFAN will be engaging with project developers, investors and financing sources, key stakeholders from the public sector and regional communities. As such, we are interested in identifying partners to work with us and participate at the workshop.

If you and / or your organisation are already working on adaptation related issues and you would like to be involved in any way in the workshop and the related programme of work, please click here to complete on-line registration by 8th June 2012. Participation in this workshop is free to all stakeholders.

For investors and financiers, this will be a useful tool to learn about and explore public sector policies and initiatives, and to identify new market opportunities.
