The Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN) is a multilateral public private partnership initiated by the Climate Technology Initiative and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Do you have a great climate change adaptation or clean energy project, but have you had difficulty attracting investment? Then, apply for the PFAN Fund.

PFAN has worked with over 500 projects since its launch in 2006. The Fund stimulates innovation and cooperation within the nature conservation sector, by challenging itself and others to think outside the box and to exchange opinions, thoughts, and experiences. PFAN accepts applications for projects in low- and middle-income countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia, Pacific Islands, Eastern Europe, and Central Asia, Central America, and Caribbean Islands.

The focus on supporting projects in developing countries, with a special focus on the tropical and subtropical regions of Africa, Asia, and Latin America. PFAN does not support individuals, only for registered non-profits. Also, the PBNF favours smaller grassroots organizations over bigger international organizations. Proposals should demonstrate that the project is commercially and technically viable, and requires no or only minimal grant funding. If your project currently receives grant funding or has done so in the past, that does not affect eligibility.


The application deadline is 6th November 2020
