The Private Financing Advisory Network - Accelerating Investment for Climate and Clean Energy

On the 10th of May, 2017, the Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN) was officially relaunched under its new hosting arrangement with the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) in cooperation with the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) in Vienna, Austria. Under this arrangement, PFAN’s activities will be scaled up by a factor of two to five by the year 2020.

What is PFAN?

The primary obstacles to the large-scale deployment of low carbon, climate resilient technologies are a lack of access to finance and a limited pipeline of bankable projects. PFAN aims to bridge the gap between investors and entrepreneurs.

PFAN is one of few actors in the climate finance space addressing the barriers to success for small and medium enterprises (SME) in developing countries and emerging economies – a shortage of bankable projects on the demand side and difficulties assessing risks and a conservative lending culture on the supply side.
