FSD Africa welcomes the Africa Green Finance Coalition, launched at the COP26 World Leaders Summit with the aim of closing the continent’s green finance gap through financial sector reforms, technical assistance, and peer learning.

FSD Africa welcomes the announcement at the COP26 World Leaders Summit that African nations will come together to create the Africa Green Finance Coalition (AGFC).

The AGFC brings together all the countries of Africa to pool resources, share learning and create a pathway for increased flows of green investment capital to the continent. It will facilitate learning and technical assistance across countries, while a peer review mechanism will hold members to account for their commitments to the necessary reforms.
