Monetizing New Forms and Sources of Capital

A component of CCA’s Catalytic Finance Accelerator

Unlocking future pools and flows of capital for clean cooking through evidence building and convening local financial market actors. 

Evidence building

Building the evidence to attract new investors, outcome buyers, and funders into clean cooking.

CCA is responsible for the following research: 

  • Outcome Buyers Landscape Insights​: Outlining buyer decision journeys, mapping stakeholders in the outcome buyer landscape, and documenting the social value of externalities from transitioning to cleaner fuels and appliances. 
  • Gender time study and methodology development: Determining the methodologies that quantify time saved by different clean cooking technologies. 

Catalyze domestic markets

Convening local banks, new funds, and project developers to engage with clean cooking. 

  • Domestic Financial Market and Carbon Finance Receivables Facility: Establishing, in partnership with the African Guarantee Fund and the UN Capital Development Fund, a global fund to unlock finance from domestic financial institutions in developing countries by leveraging carbon contracts. The programme will be tested in at least two countries before scale-up, potentially in 2024.   
  • Outcome Seller Landscape Insights​: Establishing a clear strategy to improve the capacity of outcome sellers through program support activities. 
  • Technical assistance to national banks: Establishing cohorts of local banks to co-create appropriate Guarantee Structures for carbon receivables.
