The Sustainable Energy Fund for Africa (SEFA) is a special fund designed to catalyse private sector investments in early stage renewable energy and energy efficiency markets to stimulate a transformative transition to more inclusive and green growth in Africa. SEFA is a delivery vehicle for African Development Bank’s (AfDB) New Deal on Energy for Africa (NDEA).

Climate change is increasing risks and impacts in all parts of the world economy, particularly in developing countries where there is less capacity to adapt. By 2030, the cost of making climate-vulnerable business sectors resilient is expected to be in the billions per year. Given that public action alone will not be sufficient to address the scale of this threat, this cost will largely be borne by the private sector, which will also be tasked with developing the innovative products and services needed to drive resilience. However, in private markets, where there is a very large challenge there is also a very large opportunity and businesses stepping up to increase their resilience or to create new climate-resilient products, services and business models, will be well-positioned to safeguard their own future as well as take the lead on transforming entire economic systems.

The project will help the communities to adapt to the reduced water availability by designing and implementing municipal and community level adaptation action plans with special focus on water management, agricultural production and productivity.
The objective of the programme is to support the efforts to reduce poverty by promoting access to sustainable electricity services, to increase the energy efficiency and the share of renewable energy sources.
