Supporting Climate Solutions in Africa and Latin America

The CATALI.5°T Initiative project aims to support small enterprises with strong climate mitigation potential by offering regional support programmes for businesses at pre-acceleration, and acceleration stages in Latin America and West Africa. 

Proposed by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and co-financed by Green Climate Fund (GCF) and Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the project will be implemented by Investisseurs & Partenaires Entrepreneurs et Development (IPED), and Impact Hub Abidjan in West Africa, Tecnológico de Monterrey in Latin America, GIZ and EIT Climate-KIC for the global component in energy access and power generation, low-emission transport, buildings, cities, industries and appliances, and forestry and land use areas. 

EIT Climate-KIC will support the impact assessment of climate solutions, provide capacity building and lead ideation activities through community building to nurture climate innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystems in Latin America and West Africa where barriers to technical assistance and early finance are high for new businesses. 

GCF seeks to ensure the greatest degree of transparency in all its activities through the effective dissemination of information to stakeholders and the public at large. In compliance with the GCF Information Disclosure Policy (IDP) EIT Climate-KIC recognises the need to ensure public access and stakeholder participation and discloses the following documents:
