Africa Climate Change Fund (ACCF)

The objective of the Africa Climate Change Fund is to support regional member countries (RMCs) in their transition to a more climate-resilient and low-carbon mode of development; to prepare to access greater amounts of climate finance and use of funds received more efficiently and effectively; and to allow the bank to scale up its climate change activities.
