AbstractClimate change poses a huge threat to developing countries, particularly in Africa. The past few years have seen a proliferation of international climate finance programs to help communities cope with this threat while combating its causes. But many of their strict financial-accountability mechanisms make it difficult, slow, and sometimes prohibitively expensive for stakeholders in developing countries to access climate funds, despite the dynamism and potential of many of these countries. This paper aims to increase understanding of the role of the private sector in climate finance, highlighting the African climate financing landscape and underscoring the need for effective and productive use of climate finance resources through drawing-up of effective climate finance strategies. Drawing on a case study in Kenya, it shows one adaptable climate finance strategy for Africa.
