The Catalytic Climate Finance Facility: Info Session

May 30 2023 | 10:00 AM (EST)

The Catalytic Climate Finance Facility (CC Facility) is focused on scaling sustainable climate finance by providing market acceleration services to early-stage and market-ready blended financial vehicles in under-financed areas and sectors in developing countries. The CC Facility is a partnership between Convergence and Climate Policy Initiative (CPI), two global leaders in blended and climate finance. Watch this webinar to:

  • Learn about the CC Facility and what makes it unique
  • Hear from Convergence and CPI on why we decided to partner on the CC Facility lity
  • Gain insights into how to apply and eligibility and evaluation criteria
  • Get your questions about the CC Facility answered

With funding from three anchor donors, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Global Affairs Canada, and Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the CC Facility targets one of the main barriers in the development process of a climate blended finance idea: the acceleration stage, when solutions face critical barriers and stagnation due to a lack of support.

The CC Facility is now open and the first deadline to submit concept notes is coming up on June 9, 2023. Visit the CC Facility page (https://www.convergence.finance/design-funding/open-window/ccfacility) to learn more and apply.
