Mobilising private climate finance for sustainable energy access and climate change mitigation in Sub-Saharan Africa

Publication Overview

Publication Date: 07-2020

This journal article assesses how UNFCCC-backed climate finance instruments have engaged private investment for energy-focused climate mitigation in Sub-Saharan Africa. Three case studies from Ethiopia, Madagascar and South Africa illustrate how climate finance interacts with domestic policy instruments, including in relation to the Kyoto Protocol’s Clean Development Mechanism, South Africa’s domestic renewable energy auctions, and the Green Climate Fund. The paper finds that there is no ‘catch all’ success model and approaches need to be tailored to local circumstances.
