We are in the process of developing the Akipeo Fund,
a blended finance investment vehicle which will invest in businesses and projects that enable climate smart and socially inclusive agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The Akipeo Fund will look to do this in ways that leave countries and communities with a greater share of the economic benefits of the renewable natural resources they depend upon, and with those resources managed for the long term in a more efficient, climate smart manner.
Akipeo has been selected to join the first cohort of the International Climate Finance Accelerator Luxembourg (“ICFA”). The ICFA is a Public Private Partnership jointly led by the Luxembourg Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Infrastructure and private financial sector entities. The ICFA is designed to support innovative investment fund managers investing in positive impact projects that fight climate change.
Following a competitive selection process, the inaugural cohort of four fund managers to be supported by the ICFA was announced at the Sustainable Finance Forum in Luxembourg on May 30th, 2018. Through its accelerator program, ICFA will provide technical and financial support to Akipeo and the other selected climate finance fund managers, in addition to access to a wide network of collaborators and potential investors.
