Posted October 23, 2017 at 12:56

The UNFCCC’s Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN), the ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE), and the Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN) have launched a call for proposals for women-led sustainable energy enterprises in West-Africa. Women-led businesses employing clean energy solutions to facilitate women’s economic empowerment in the ECOWAS countries and seeking investments of up to USD 50 million are invited to apply. Deadline is the 20th of November.

At least 10 projects or businesses will be selected and receive coaching support from experienced professionals for the development of a financially, socially and environmentally sustainable business plan, which will play a crucial role in subsequent investor outreach. Upon the completion of the coaching phase, the projects will be introduced to interested investors, and receive follow-up support and deal-making facilitation.
