Innovative Finance

A component of CCA’s Catalytic Finance Accelerator

CCA’s primary vehicle for delivering its innovative finance agenda is the Catalytic Finance Accelerator (CFA), a global market development program launched in 2023.

The CFA aims to spur significant growth in funding and investment in the sector by influencing the behavior and decisions of players in carbon markets, financial markets, and emerging markets. It will address challenges that prevent high-growth catalytic capital from supporting clean cooking. The CFA has four programmatic components: instilling smarter policies, standards, and principles; building improved market information, tools, and infrastructure; improving the capacity of clean cooking solutions providers; and attracting new pools of capital from adjacent sector investors, outcome buyers, and funders.
