Unlocking Climate Finance for Developing Countries

Where We Work

Building a network of hyper-local, highly-trained climate advisors.

Our network of financial advisors helps developing countries access funding where it’s most difficult to secure. Our advisors are core to the CFAN solution – that’s why we invest in their success by providing state-of-the-art training that’s region-tailored and rooted in real cases.

Advisor Training
  • “Our goal at CFAN is to build lasting capacity. We take a practical approach to addressing the climate challenge, one that is driven by country priorities and fundamentally people-centered. In this effort to unlock climate finance, our advisors are the tip of the spear.”

  • “Having worked extensively with the Solomon Islands government, I know from experience how hard it is for developing nations to get critical finance for climate resilience. Through CFAN, I now feel ready to help these countries unlock the support they need.”

    Walter Malau

    CFAN Advisor for the Solomon Islands, Samoa, and Tuvalu

  • “Small island nations are on the front lines of climate change. Targeting capacity building in the Pacific was critical for Canada as an initial step to further accelerating global action on climate change. Canada remains steadfast in its commitment to work with other global leaders in order to tackle climate change, deliver both capital and capacity where it’s needed most, and contribute to improving the well-being of people across developing countries.”

    “My experience working in Fiji has made clear the challenges island nations are up against, such as securing and structuring finance for climate investments. The CFAN training — in particular project design and finance fundamentals — has been designed to help us navigate these challenges."
